At the heart of the Tree Room’s culinary repertoire is the renowned pepper steak – a dish that has stood the test of time, captivating the taste buds of visitors for many years.

The dish is elegantly presented with butter-wilted spinach and palm puree, further enhancing the sensory journey for diners.
