You know what’s the worst? When you go to an event hungry and the food disappoints. Yes I know, you go for the occasion, not the food, but let’s face it – Malaysian culture has always been food-centric and our belief is the food should flow as well and freely, as the booze.
That’s why we’re so excited that these heavenly restaurants not only guarantee a good meal but a beautiful venue space to ensure your guests will be enjoying themselves rather than planning their Macca’s run later on. Here are some restaurants which double up as an event space in KL you can consider for your next event!
