This was not an expensive meal, yet it was an excellent one. For the equivalent of USD $35/CDN $50, two people had an all-we-could eat lunch with bottled water, mango juice, and strong, but good coffee. I had the chicken dish, and my wife had the lamb. Both delicious. This was preceded by a buffet of Middle Eastern appetizers (unlimited... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch buffet in this restaurant. As it was Ramadan there was only one other diner, but I still enjoyed the lovely decor and excellent food. The price is at the higher end for Malaysia but by Australian standards it was affordable and good value given the amount of food and its quality.

Situated next to the museum gift/bookshop, the restaurant is spacious, spotless and a pleasant location to have lunch. We had the buffet which offered a varied range of dishes all of which were excellent.

I cannot believe myself that this is definitely 1 of the best food that I have tasted in my entire life. The Mandy Lamb is highly recommended. The rice, the meat… everything is well-cooked and balanced.

IF you're visiting the Islamic Arts museum then the restaurant and cafe is a good place to rest your aching feet! We called there just for a drink but the food available looked delicious. There are some interesting drinks available....try the Anab fruit drink made from the sour hibiscus....very refreshing. It's a very cool and airy place to relax in... More

I attended an event at the museum. They provided us with morning tea. It was a lovely selection of local delights. Nice assortment of savory and sweet. I found the setting of the café lovely. It is spacious and bright. Simple but since décor.

I just had coffee and a snack in the restaurant and am rating it as excellent because the venue is so nice and the place is a relaxing oasis in a very fine museum. It serves a range of Asian foods and is a white table cloth eatery. The museum has excellent facilities overall including a great bookstore.

Although the deco was amazing with antique styled lamps, the service was not upto the mark. The tables were arranged nicely but the restaurant showed a deserted look at 3 pm on Thursday evening when we walked in.. We had to go near the kitchen door to inquire if it was open in spite of the OPEN sign on the... More
