Food and Drink

The Ho Mei Late Bar

If you are planning on meeting up with friends at the casino, the Ho Mei Late Bar is a good meeting place.  It’s also a nice place to go when you fancy a break from playing. 

The late bar offers a wide range of drinks and cocktails.  They have a Gin Menu.  You can select different types of gin (botanical, juniper, herbaceous or citrus gin). your own tonic and garnish.   

There are also 4 karaoke booths.  As well as karaoke, you can watch Sky Sports on a 60” HD TV.

 

The Hou Mei Restaurant

The Genting Group was founded by 1965 by Malaysian entrepreneur Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong.  His first hotel was started in 1971 in Malaysia.  As such, Genting has almost 50 years experience in preparing genuine Asian Cuisine. 

The Hou Mei (which means “good taste”) restaurant offers modern Asian Cuisine.   Most of the dishes on the menu are Chinese.  There are also dishes from Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam.

 

Summary

The Genting Casino in Glasgow is located in a vibrant part of Glasgow.  The casino bar and restaurant has an Asian-theme with karaoke in the bar and Asian cuisine in the restaurant.   

They provide facilities for groups that include new players with their Genting Nights Packages.

There are plenty of games, although not as many as the Genting Casino at Fountainpark in Edinburgh.

I recommend Genting Casino in Glasgow.
