Top 5 Ramadan Buffets in KL for 2023

Ramadan is a holy month observed by Muslims all around the world, where they fast from dawn until dusk. During the month of Ramadan, “iftar”, more commonly known to Malaysians as Buka Puasa, is treated as a special occasion where families and groups of friends come together to break their fast with a hearty meal.

Malaysia, being a Muslim-majority country, always has countless options to offer when it comes to choosing a Buka Puasa spot.

With so many bazaars and restaurants everywhere, how does one even decide?

Our team at 24Local has curated a list of the top 5 Ramadan buffet spots in KL that are guaranteed to leave you feeling content.

1. Sedap Restaurant, Pullman Hotel KLCC

Pullman KLCC’s Bazaar Dinner Buffet is not to be missed if you’re looking for a spot with a great spread. The buffet features a wide variety of Malay traditional dishes alongside a couple of international cuisines (which are local-inspired!).

Guests can expect to enjoy dishes such as Rendang, Laksa, Masak Lemak, seafood cooked in local Malay styles, and so many more. Just outside the hotel lobby, there are live cooking stalls where guests can watch the chefs prepare dishes such as satay, kebab, and even grilled lamb.

For those with a sweet tooth, this buffet should be on the top of your list as their dessert selection is very impressive. From traditional Malay kuih to cream puffs and all sorts of ice cream flavours, we guarantee you there’s something for everyone. For our fellow durian lovers, free-flow of durian is available for just an additional RM50!
