Surf in the City at Centara Grand


Following on from the success of the Champagne Surf and Turf Sunday Brunch, the Centara Grand Hotel at Central World has introduced a Surf in the City lunch to be held every Friday.

Such was the popularity of the Champagne Surf and Turf Brunch that the event went from once a month to the now recognised first and third Sunday of each month.  The logical progression sees the Fifty Five Restaurant host the TGIF luncheon every Friday from 11.30am to 2.30pm.

Diners can savour the most dramatic city views as they dine on the finest seafood and juiciest cuts of meat, while a selection of fine wines helps to start the weekend in style.
