We know the hassle that comes with looking for somewhere special to buka puasa with your friends and family. In addition to looking for yummy, nutritious food, you’ve also got to make sure that the place can accommodate your entire group – especially in this busy period. We’ve put together a scrumptious list of options at the dining paradise that is Pavilion Bukit Jalil to help you find the right spots for all your buka puasa gatherings.
Iftar With LOVE!
Oftentimes, breaking fast is a group occasion, with families, friends and colleagues, gathering to replenish and refresh their bodies after a long day’s fast. To make the most of your Ramadan dinner occasions, take your family to an iconic Malaysian classic!
A local favourite, Grandmama’s ‘buka puasa’ menu features sets of ‘Nasi Dulang Bukhari’ with various options such as the ‘braised boneless lamb leg,’ ‘roasted turmeric chicken,’ ‘spiced mixed seafood,’ and ‘braised beef topside’. With a contemporary and spacious family-friendly atmosphere, this restaurant is the perfect venue for ‘buka puasa’. Those looking for a quick fix of their favourite local snacks can also drop by Sedap by Grandmama’s.
The group with small eaters who appreciate big flavours can head over to D’Laksa for some hearty ‘Asam Laksa’, ‘Asam Lobsterball’, ‘Asam Fishball’ and the all-time Malaysian favourite – ‘Fruit Rojak’, while those looking for other local flavours can also visit Seniman to try their famous ‘Nasi Dulang’ that makes for the perfect sharing platter.
The newly opened Two Cents Hot Wings is also a must-try for those ready to turn up the heat. Serving up buffalo wings with different spice levels from ‘golden teriyaki’ to ‘ghost pepper’, these wings are the perfect go-to for those looking for a quick meal or a spicy challenge with their friends and family this Ramadan season.
A delicacy full of hearty tastes and flavourful aromas, Mee Hiris China Muslim brings North Chinese halal cuisine to your family’s table.

Alternatively, consider a wholesome, vegetarian dining experience with Simple Life! A thoughtfully curated menu of vegetarian dishes will have you feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and – most importantly – full, all while using organic ingredients, speciality multigrain rice and brown rice noodles.
