The culinary team of Executive Sou Chef Ong Eng Kok, Sou Chef Khairuddin Aman Shah, Indian Chef Rajendra Negi and Chef De Parte Mohd Mahathir Mohd Mokhtar, have been working hard to design various menus to give diners a memorable dining experience at not one, but two venues in the hotel.

At the Makan Kitchen, which has earned an enviable reputation for the quality and range of food in its Malay, Chinese, Indian and European kitchens, the wide buffet spread will feature Malaysian and Middle Eastern specialties.

Malaysian favourites include Lamb Briyani, grilled whole lamb, Venison Rendang and a range of local appetizers like Kerabu Mangga Muda (young mango salad) and Kerabu Aneka Laut (mixed seafood salad).

To add to the festive feeling, traditional rice specialties like ketupat and lemang are served with serunding (meat floss) and kuah kacang (spicy peanut sauce).

And from the Carvery, there is a whole roasted Harissa lamb to savour.

The Malaysian experience continues with items like Tandoori Salmon Tikka and Slipper Lobsters from the Indian Kitchen and Chilli Crabs and stir-fried Marmite Prawns from the Chinese Kitchen.

Then indulge in Middle Eastern cuisine from appetizers, main course items to desserts.

Selections from the Chinese and Indian Kitchens
Start with succulent dates, Lebanese and Pita breads with hummus, Baba Ganoush and Fattoush Salad before enjoying main course items like Chicken Tzatziki and Karouf Mashi (lamb with flavoured rice). Then end sweetly with assorted Baklava, Um Ali Barbossa and Balah El Sham. Don’t miss Turkish ice-cream in a variety of flavours.

Diners, familiar with Makan Kitchen, will enjoy interesting selections from the various kitchens here – from Malay, Chinese, Indian to European – and all the festive flavours.

At level 11, another delectable buffet dubbed Feast@11th features The Best of Malaysian Favourites with live-cooking and serving stations for Assam Pedas, Satay, traditional soups, Nasi Kawah and even La Mian or pulled noodles.

The comforting taste of hot soup can be savoured with meat choices of oxtail, beef, lamb or chicken. Or try smooth Beijing-style pulled noodles in beef or chicken broth.

Look out for other live-serving stations for Roasted Lamb and Braised Short Ribs.

Seafood-on-ice at Feast@11th
Don’t be surprised at the refreshing treat of Seafood-on-ice where chilled prawns, oysters, mussels, scallops and blue crabs are savoured with fresh lemon slices and sauces.

To complement the meat dishes, there is a range of salads, both local and international, matched with a selection of sambal sauces and dressings.

From Kerabu to fresh garden salads, mix and toss up a refreshing choice. Or just enjoy favourite flavours in fruit rojak and vegetable Gado-Gado.

Among the desserts that have grown popular during Ramadan are fried durian fritters. These fragrant fritters are freshly served here along with curry-puffs, samosas and popia or spring rolls.

Appetites are awakened with juicy kurma or dates, fresh fruits and mouth-watering fruit pickles. Then choose from Malay kueh, Raya cookies to assorted French pastries, ice-kacang and yogurt ice-cream, to end your meal sweetly.
