Ramadan Buffet 2016: Kampung Dining Experience, JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur

Looking for a relaxing and romantic place to break your fast this coming Ramadan? Been abstaining from smoking for the whole day but could not find a smoker friendly and an open air restaurant that allows you to both smoke and eat at the same time?

Well, I don’t condone smoking but if you are looking for such option, you may want to consider breaking fast at the poolside in JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur where you can do both.

The Poolside (Level 6) and the Starhill Conference Center (Level 4) at JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur will be transformed into a Ramadan bazaar, replicating a kampung ambience. Aside from the spectacular set up and displays to reminisce the nostalgia of breaking fast in a traditional village setting, the main highlight of the evening is the scrumptious menu.

Staying traditional with a heritage theme, the Ramadhan Buffet will feature 138 of the most popular and classic Malay dishes customarily served during Ramadhan.
