If you looking good combo malay food this is the best restaurant, while you having dinner at the same time you can watch malay culture dance, you can even participate with them. Located near twin towers. Very affordable price.

My boyfriend and I went here on our first night in KL. We had the mixed satay to start, which was delicious. The cultural dance was fun and the dancers encourage audience participation. (They will pull anyone up not just those sitting near the front!). All in all a nice start to our holiday.

when there during Ramadhan . The food doesnt compliment the price paid for ramadhan buffet. The plus point is that it has local/traditional dances at night starting at 7.30PM.
