FOOD & BEVERAGES
There are not many casinos in the UK that can boast an award-winning 5-Star Restaurant as well as a premium casino experience. The Genting Casino is one of those that can and the Fahrenheit Restaurant on its own is a major reason to visit this casino.
Open from 6 pm to 3 am each day, this restaurant is not only renowned for its fantastic menu, superb chefs and relaxing environment but also for its excellent value. A three-course meal will set you back just £22.95 while you can also enjoy a wonderful selection of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails.
Want to watch the big match or the latest boxing fight? Then the sports lounge and bar is the best place to do so. Sit back, chill with a cold beer or two with friends and take in all the live-action on the huge 90” HD television screen.
There is usually something going on at the Genting Casino that you can take advantage of. Whether its one of the excellent value dinner packages can be availed from the excellent 5-star Fahrenheit Restaurant or a group booking, the casino always tries to give its customers the best value possible.
They also allow you to host your stag or hen party at the casino with packages including a 3-course meal, a drink at the bar, a £5 bet and a tutorial on how to play either Blackjack or Roulette at a tutorial table for just £24.95 per person.
