Life seems to be slowly on the path back to “normal”, or “normal” as can be during these times, and that includes having the choice to dine in. However, some may still feel like it isn’t totally safe enough to remove masks and eat in public, preferring a more private space where they can dine with more peace of mind with their friends/family instead. If you’re looking for one of these places, we have 8 restaurants in KL & Selangor that have private dining rooms here!
Note: Most Chinese restaurants with big names such as “Oriental” or “Imperial” are known to having private dining rooms, so we’re excluding them from this list for now.
