Restaurant & Cafe to Buka Puasa during Ramadan in Kuala Lumpur
This is my personal list of restaurants and cafes around Kuala Lumpur that I think my Muslim readers would like to have their Ramadan Buka Puasa at. I’ve dined at quire a number of places around Kuala Lumpur, but yet have not really conquered all the good places. This list is based on Environment, Food quality and Affordable pricing for your Ramadhan Buka Puasa needs. Do always keep in mind that they will be super packed during the break fast during ramadan, so do give them a call to make early reservations.
If you have anywhere else that you think visitors to Thristhan.com should know, do add on the the comment below. Hotels & Resorts if you are having your own Ramadan Buffet, do contact me and Invite me for a food review and we will feature your restaurant or cafe on this travel and food blog.
Restaurant Puti Bungsu Batam on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng
The Puti Bungsu Batam Restaurant is a 24 hours restaurand in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and is about 10 minutes walk away from the Petronas Twin Tower. This restaurant features authentic Indonesian style food and is probably the one and only Indonesian food that I enjoy around Kuala Lumpur. They have nice and comfortable dining areas that could fit about 150 people in total at any one time. If you’re planning to dine here, call them and make a reservation way in advance because if you walk-in, I can almost guarantee that you will not be entertained.
This would be a great location for a bunch of you to buka puasa during Ramadan, especially for those working at the nearby buildings on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. I particularly love their Prawn with Chilli Paste (Sambal Udang), Vegetable with Coconut based sauce (sayur masak lemak) and Spicy Beef Curry (Rendang Daging). Do also try their signature drink which is the Avacado with Chocolate Syrup, a must try. I’ve tried the Avacado Chocolate in Palembang, Indonesia, but find the one served here at Puti Bungsu Batam Restaurant taste better.

Haven Restaurant Look Out Point at Hulu Langat, Ampang
This is my favourite of all places on Look Out Point, Hulu Langat. There are few other restaurant on the hill, namely Panorama Restaurant, Look Out Point Restaurant, Gasoline Restaurant, but Haven Restaurant has got to be the best restaurant in terms of the marvellous view and delicious tasting food. Eventhough slightly high priced, it will surely be worth for you to spend during the Ramadan Buka Puasa. This place is usually packed on weekends only, so if you’re planning to go up to Ampang Look Out Point on a weekday, you should not need any reservations.
Imagine dining while having a great view of the skyline of Kuala Lumpur city including the Petronas Twin Tower and Kuala Lumpur Tower. Their style of food is western and a fusion of our local Malaysian dishes, so there is something for everyone at Haven Restaurant. Their signature dish, or rather the dish that I love the most is the Haven’s Special BBQ Beef Ribs that comes with Mashed potatoes and Vegetables. The other dish that you may want to give a go is the Haven’s Special Grilled Chicken Chop. Haven Restaurant also has Lobsters so if you can afford more for your buka puasa, do give that a try. Generally each dish should come between RM25-Rm45.

Address: Lot 1A & 1B Look Out Point ( Menara Tinjau), Jln Ampang – Hulu Langat, 43100
Stadium Negara Restaurant on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng
One one of the day for your Ramadan Buka Puasa, you may want to try something different, probably Steamboat and one of the good ones that you can try is on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, simply named Stadium Negara Restaurant. This restaurant is packed on most evening, so you’ll probably need to make future reservations as well.
Their technique of steaming the steamboat is not by using modern gas burners, but traditional char coal steamboat methods. You’ll have to be careful with this because since you’re not able to control the fire that much, the food might get over cooked. There will always be a person going around the tables to assist if you’re having any problems with the steamboats. It terms of the price that you pay, I personally feel the portions were little. Other delicacies that you would want to try at Restaurant Stadium Negara is their fried chicken wings and steamed Mantou ( A type of bun with meat, kaya or red bean filling). Per person would be expected to spend about RM20-RM25.

Address: 2 Persiaran Lidol, off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur
Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng
If you want to dine for western food with the feeling of being in a Garden, this is the perfect place to be. Their open concept of the Restaurant and Cafe is amazing. The whole restaurant is in the form of a huge bungalow so you’ll have parts of the rooms in the cafe looking like the kitchen, living room, bed room and so on. The ground floor is used for dining and upstairs is where they display their clothing and accessories products and you are allowed to purchase them. The ladies would love this, so while the guys are busy eating, the ladies are just a walk away to some authentic clothing ranges.
Food here is generally expensive, but you get what you pay for. A standard dinner set would be expected to be in the range of RM15-RM25 and a la carte menus are slightly costlier. Do try their homemade mushroom soup which is thick and delicious. Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe also offers desserts which mainly consist of cake slices and cupcakes.

Komura Japanese Buffet Restaurant in Corus Hotel on Jalan Ampang Kuala Lumpur
One day, you probably want to try a Japanese dish, if that is the case, Corus Hotel is the place that you would wanna check out. The Komura Japanese Buffet Restaurant serves a great range of Japanese dishes such as Sushi, Tepanyaki, Shashimi and many others. This Japanese Buffet is not the type of buffet you might be expecting where you grab what ever you want. This is more of a serving kinda buffet where you’ll need to order, and they bring you the dishes. Do make sure you finish everything you order because there is a charge based on weight of 100grams for anything that you waste.
The restaurant is open for dinner between 6.30pm and 10pm. Do make early reservations to enjoy a private room for your own comfort. Generally the Komura Japanese Restaurant can seat 80 people at any one time. The Komura Japanese Buffet Restaurant, eat all you can buffet is currently going for RM65++. For reservation queries, do kindly contact Corus Hotel directly at 03-21618888.
These restaurants as far as I’m concerned are Halal for Muslims because I have dined here with my Malay friends. So this coming Ramadan month, do enjoy your buka puasa and wishing all of you “Selamat Berpuasa”. Share with us your dining experience by commenting below.
