Buffet Ramadhan @ Paya Serai, PJ Hilton

Twas the season again where Malaysians can now indulge their tasting buds at the various Ramadhan buffets offered by all the hotels and resorts in town! I was delighted to dine again at the exclusive Paya Serai Restaurant situated inside PJ Hilton Resort. I dined here twice last year, was extremely satisfied with the experience and so I revisited again this year. (Planned to but since I was invited to review it, I was thrilled to death!) ^^

I think the buffet Ramadhan at Paya Serai is among the most expensive dine-in experience in the Klang area. The first week it will cost you RM99++ and the second week onwards will cost you RM129++ per person. Is it worth it? My answer, yes if you love to splurge.

Among all the Ramadhan buffets that I've been to, I strongly believe that Paya Serai has the most extensive and impressive variety of local cuisine in the country! And I'm not exaggerating on this.

My companion for this Ramadhan review is Ms. Fie of Thanks dearie to accept my invitation at such short notice! =)

My cute date for the buffet review in front of the Chocolate fondue.
Surau is also available on the fifth floow of the hotel. Just follow the blue signs.

I was surprised to see that the female's surau is very big!
And back to the buffet display and the dining area....

Clockwise from upper left : Tropical Fruit Cake, sitting area ala banquet style, sitting area ala corporate, fruits display and local kuih-muih display.
Don't forget the various main dishes at the center of the restaurant!

Ketupat lemang section. Mostly Malay food being served here. ^^
I chanced upon a little girl diving into the seafood section with a smile.
Fresh Seafood on Ice section - Prawn, Mussel, Oyster, Crab, Clam, Slipper Lobster, Shalllot Vinaigrette.
I wandered into the Open Chicken Section and dive into the grills selection -  ayam percik, honey BBQ Chicken Wing, Sotong Bakar, Snapper Fillet and Chili Ikan Ayam, Perghh! #kenyangmak!

Clockwise from upper left - Chicken Wing, Clams, Pudding, Lala Tumis Bersantan, Chicken Shawarma with Pita Bread
And most importantly the kampung-style ambiance caused by the local LIVE talents as seen below. ^^

They were playing famous traditional Malay songs as we dine! Nostalgic much?
Paya Serai has four types of  menus that change daily. We were enjoying Menu A for that day and it was above satisfactory!

For those who are interested to head here for an open fast session, the details are as stated below.

First week of Ramadhan - RM99++ per person
The following weeks - RM129++ per person
