When researching and planning for wedding ceremony or banquet venues, we usually consider factors like: 

  1. Ambiance of the hall/ ballroom: modern, old-fashioned setting, lighting, decoration
  2. Privacy (sharing entrance with walk-in guests or more than one weddings in the same hall)
  3. Obstructive pillars
  4. Wedding package/ price
  5. Other charges (corkage, PA system, projectors + screen/LCD, air cooler rental, etc)
  6. Freebies/ benefits (dummy cake, champagne+glasses, invitation cards, food testing)
  7. Other facilities: changing room, restroom, reception foyer
  8. Sound system quality
  9. Food quality, portion, presentation (Most hotels serve halal food)
  10. Person-in-charge, wedding planner
  11. Parking options
  12. Location (Distance from KL, traffic condition, easy to locate)

Price with "++" is subject to 10% Service Charge and 6% GST. Each venue has its positive and negative aspects. Don't be depressed over the issues, instead try to think of ways to work around them. Example, if previous reviews indicate problem of untrained staffs, then you can work out a plan with the manager to give specific instructions on what you expect them to do on the wedding day.

  1. I'm looking for a not so Chinese-themed restaurant, less about RM800 per table. Not sure which one to choose. Bangsar Seafood restaurant looks good, meets my expectation.

  2. This list is very useful, thanks. I've shortlisted TT Tropicana Golf resort and Oriental Banquet. good food and service is important.

  3. Hi anonymous, Bangsar seafood is closed for good. try Noble banquet, oriental banquet or oriental pavilion. there are pretty modern looking with the cheapest menu less around or less than 800.

  4. Great list! So helpful. Thanks a million

  5. hi Anonymous,
    you're welcome. if you have any of your experience to share, in terms of package, price, quality... do drop a note here for the benefits of other brides.

  6. Hi Le Ann,

    By any chance you know Casa Jardin contact number or address? Been googling for their info but cant find any :( you can email me at

    Thanks dear :)

    1. I think it could be non-existent. Where did you hear this restaurant from besides malaysia brides forum? I'm still waiting for whoever knows about it. I called the directory service, but Casa Jardin KL does not exist!

  7. I attended a wedding at Equatorial KL. I think the ballroom was nice, food serving was big (enough), taste wise ok. For the price, I think this hotel is a pretty good deal. Traffic was a bit of problem in KL on Saturday.

    1. thanks for the comment addition to the existing info.

    2. Now under constructions...

    3. Equatorial KL now is under redevelopment......not sure when will they reopen.

  8. I don't think Vistana still have RM888 nett package...

    1. thanks for your comment. It has been removed. Do you have the details of the latest menu packages?

  9. Had my banquet with Armada Hotel. Besides the newly renovated ballroom, other things were not that satisfactory. Ballroom and foyer looks nice, but the food is not very good. Prawns are very very small that it was an embarrassment to us. Supposed to give us 5 tier champagne glasses but only got 4 tiers. Audio & lighting was badly co-ordinated that my mom had to run in to inform them to dim the lights! Table numbers are wrongly assigned and table arrangement is not as per final floor plan. Some relatives ended up unhappy as they were inadvertently seated at the corner coz of the table arrangement mix up. Being the hosts, we were too busy to ensure the program flow that we didn't expect the hotel to flip out on such details.

    1. I've updated the list with your comments. In that case Armada PJ will not be a wedding venue I would recommend to my readers. the food during food testing was better?

    2. Hi Ann....Armada Hotel appears twice in you Selangor Hotels list. You may want to remove the second one ;-)

  10. Im looking halal places to hold my chinese dinner. Any recommendations with affordable prices? Am hoping to get about 1k per table...

  11. Thanks CpMoon for spotting that, updated.

    aireez, I would definitely recommend Tropicana Golf and country resort (Spring Garden). the service was excellent. the PIC Diana made sure everything is well organized. We had a small tea ceremony at the restaurant and Diana helped served the tea. Here's the link for more info:

    Other than that here's a list of all venues that serve Chinese food:

    Here's the venues that offer packages from RM500-RM1K per table:

    Most hotels serve halal Chinese food but they are over RM1K per table. I think Vistana Hotel should meet your requirement, I'm not sure how much is the rate now.

  12. Hi Le Ann,

    Thanks for your suggestions, but i think not many know this and i would like to clarify...

    Pork-free does NOT mean halal at all. It just means that the restaurant doesnt serve pork, but the slaughter of the animals may not be halal as per Islam guidelines, and some people might mind that.

    In my case, mu husband and I dont mind, but his parents very much so mind =[. So Tai Thong and Oriental group restaurants, despite being pork-free, are out of the picture .

    So difficult. Vistana has good package, but 2013's after tax rate exceeds 1k, I'm afraid i might make a loss, which i can't quite afford.

    1. Hi Aireez,
      I did ask specifically if the chicken and stuff are slaughtered in a halal way, Tai Thong told me they are halal. their kitchen is completely halal. the only reason why they could not get a halal certification is because they serve alcoholic beverages. Unless there was a mis-communication.....

    2. Tai thong I meant, certain branches like the one at tropicana golf resort, bukit jalil golf resort and bukit kiara.

    3. I got an email response from Tai Thong. I asked them if their meat were slaughtered in halal way and their reply, as quoted, is "We just checked and the meat is not slaughters in halal way."

    4. oh ok. sorry for the misleading info. I'll change tropicana's tai thong to pork-free category instead of halal.

  13. Le Ann,

    You sure? They slaughter halal? This info you get from who? If they really are halal, my options are a lot wider!

  14. Le Ann,

    Do you know if Maju Palace is halal for real? They gave me a rather odd answer... not too sure what to think of it,

    "Maju Palace is the only halal restaurant under our group. We are certified to be halal no matter the way how they slaughter and the preparations of food and we are also one of the top halal Chinese restaurant in Klang Valley area."

    1. Previously I dropped by at Maju Palace as well. They told me they source their meat from halal vendors. You can go check it out.

  15. Thanks Le Ann, will definitely do so. I triple checked with Tai Thong; they said the meat are not slaughtered in halal way =[ Hope Maju Palace give a positive answer *cross fingers*

    1. Hi Aireez, hope not too late to reply.. vistana could offer 1k for a halal chinese set menu even their rate are above above the taxes.. mini is exactly 1k from her menu rate of RM1088.08nett.. cause i told her my budget range. If you have not decide, you may give them a call! wish u luck!

  16. Avillion Legacy (Jln Hang Tuah, Melaka) - from RM708nett per table

    Any one tried this hotel b4? i though of having my reception dinner here, please help on this!

  17. Hi all,

    I'm planning to have a garden-english-themed wedding. Plan to have luncheon instead of dinner. Besides Carcosa Seri Negara, any other hotel that provides good ambient for english-themed wedding and serves good-affordable food as well?
    Preferably around Subang and Shah Alam area. But if I can't find any suitable ones, then I will opt for hotels around KL area.

    Please share your thoughts. Have a nice day all!

  18. Hi all

    I am looking for a place to have my Indian wedding reception. Any suggestions? Good food and service is really important. Thank you :)

  19. Before I make any comments, I would like to hear from the others if anyone has suggestions - English themed wedding, and Indian wedding reception venue.

  20. Hi, i would like to hav a beach wedding next year n a wedding dinner at chinese restaurant or hotel. any suggestion?

  21. Do you have any information of wedding dinner package about One World Hotel?


    1. Hi Win, I've added the wedding package for OneWorld hotel in the list above.

  22. hi thr, I'm planning to have a garden wedding but I don't want to take the hotel food.... do u know any hotel which rent out thr garden (for 350 pax) and allow outside food and external wedding planner? thanks.

  23. Hi Vaani

    Just curious - are you planning to cater Indian food for your wedding? Name is Jay and I am planning to have my wedding next year.

  24. Dear All Just to Share with you on this very good informative Blog on Weddings & Gatherings. I am their official Wedding Planner and tied up with these 2 venues (Songket Garden Weddings)in Yap Kwan Seng and Sungei Penchala (Asmara Penchala)new management Near TTDI. May I suggest my venue that I have done many Weddings (Malay, English & Indian Fusion) whereby the venue does not serve alcohol and Pork free, we have applied for the new halal cert and in waiting to get the cert. The venues are really beautiful with indoor, terrace & garden with a WOW ambience (FB & my other FB is Both does weddings & gatherings. Go check out the FB's & see for yourselves. Contact me packages includes Free wedding planning. Reply assured withinh 24hours. If the food is not good, "Then don't pay for it".

    1. Hi haris,
      I was looking at the penchala location and honestly it was a huge disappointment. It was nothing like before. I felt it was rundown and the wooden chairs and tables had mites. Visited last month. Do you happen to know if they're going to refurbish the area? It was all so romantic and nice before.

  25. Hi all,
    My wedding is planned to be next year in seremban and we are currently scouting for the dinner reception venue. I've recently called the chinese restaurants in seremban, and here is the list:
    1. Regent (06-7639066) - the cheapest menu is 538 nett. there are two levels, upstairs can fit up to 50 tables. downstairs about 30+ tables. while I love the food served there, been to weddings a couple of times, I don't quite fancy the environment and the noise.
    2. Silver Dragon (012-6741910, wendy) - they are producing a new wedding menu for 2013, and the package starts from >RM500 one table. Have not attended any weddings there but the hall is the nicest in seremban. they have a grand ballroom. can fit max 75 tables, min at 15 tables.
    3. lucky palace (S2 opposite Jusco) 06-6011328 - from RM568nett. they have a long stretch of halls, when all opened up can fit up to 200 tables ! Environment is good, food is nice too.

    there are so many details to take care during wedding, just wondering if any of you had good or bad experience dealing with these restaurants for your actual wedding day. I've checked other bridal forums but the info seem to be outdated. please help me....

    1. Hi ky,
      I personally like the food at Hee Lai Ton Seremban (喜来登). I've been to quite a number of wedding dinners there.

      Regent (Tung Yat) for me is a no-no because the location is bad for receiving guests. The road is narrow and parking is quite a hassle. It's an old shop lot (they may have done some renovation), without proper rooms for more private event. You have to share the hall with other weddings, and karaoke singing is prevalent, the wedding becomes super noisy. No doubt the food is really good.

      Silver Dragon is the new restaurant with a ballroom. Ambiance wise, most suitable for weddings.

    2. can check out seremban vendors here:

  26. Was at my friend's weddding at Traders Penang. The ballroom is not amazing for a hotel standard. There's something about the lighting that makes the whole hall too yellowish. The stage was big but it looks too simple, without any nice design. Conclusion, the ballroom is not up to my expectation.

  27. Hello, I have just started my wedding prep and I stumbled upon your site. I was very impressed with the content and would like to conduct more thorough research. I will be glad to share my experience with you guys later when I become more involved in the planning. Now struggling to find the right location. My initial idea was to have an outdoor wedding. Wish me luck! Thanks so much!

    1. Good luck Pauline! Hope you have a pleasant wedding planning.

  28. I've also just started looking into a wedding. So don't have much to offer.

    I've contacted Amy at Park Royal and she has a very quick response time. Hilton and Double Tree KL which are both Hilton group, gave me absolutely useless responses to my initial queries, they didn't answer my questions and just cut and past generic responses without even reading my requests.

  29. i am planning to have my wedding dinner in seremban. was wondering which to go? Allson Klana Resort or The Royale Bintang Resort and Spa for information from you guys over here.....

  30. Hi there,
    Stumbled upon this site and find it very informative. I have just started planning for our wedding. Currently, looking for venues to hold the wedding reception. One of our favs is cyberview lodge-a partial garden concept. We would love to hear some suggestions from you regards to great wedding wedding venues, which will of course turn out great on pictures too!

    1. Cyberview Lodge is definitely very beautiful location for garden wedding. I attended a wedding there before, the view was amazing! However the ceremony was held in the evening when it was still rather hot. Everyone was sweating uncontrollably. Another hotspot for garden concept wedding is Carcosa. Royale Chulan provides an indoor garden which I think is a brilliant idea. For more cozy, relaxed and intimate environment, check out Passion Road and Ciao Ristorante.

  31. Hi there, am just started planning for our wedding for May 2013 but having some trouble looking for a venue that could meet below criteria:

    1. Minimal decoration yet it looks elegant
    2. Chinese cuisine preferred
    3. Budget: max RM90 - 100 per pax, inclusive of beverages and corkage fee
    4. Pax size: 120 - 150
    5. Location: KL or Selangor

    I like Banker's Club but couldn't get them to respond to my email at all. And, I am now working overseas so doing it via email is the best option I have.

    Anyone has any recommendation?


    1. Swiss garden hotel has a small ballroom - Grand Lotus which can fit up to 180pax. However price is above 100 per pax. I believe the wedding package of Bankers Club is also above RM100 per pax. Other hotel with more reasonable rates and good reviews is Vistana KL.

      Tropicana Golf Resort is a good choice as well, it has nice ballrooms (ballroom I can fit up to 150 pax) and you can take the Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant packages which start from less than Rm100 per pax. Ming Room (Oriental Group) caters for small weddings, pretty good food and perfect for 15 tables.

    2. Hi Lee Ann, thanks for the tips. Finally Banker's Club responded though am willing to increase the budget but the date is not available anymore. Was thinking of not going to have it in hotel, but guess can explore that too. What is your thought on Neo Tamarind, Passion Road, Overseas and Ciao? Ya, I know 3 of them aren't really Chinese cuisine.

      Any idea on who is a reasonably priced MU for AD?


    3. Ciao serves Italian food, while Passion Road serves both Western and Asian food which may be something closer to what you are looking for. You can do a search for bungalow, it will show the reviews. Tamarind is suitable for small wedding party, however read below for the negative reviews.

      Tamarind's reviews:
      [1] Jul 12: It's too dark, the path from carpark not high-heel-friendly, therefore not recommended. Love their food, but on a more cozy ocassion, like dinner for two. Not for a party. *BAD*--- [2] Mar 11: Tamarind Springs can be an option for garden/poolside ROM but quite expensive. *BAD*--- [3] Dec 10: Good food and good ambiance for wedding dinner or just casual get together. Will definitely impress your guests. Get the direction right, it's quite secluded. *GOOD*--- [4] Jul 10: Refreshing change from the norm. Surrounded by jungle, cosy ambience and exotic decor. delectable Indochine/ Italian food. In demand as a small wedding venue. place for wedding shoots. *GOOD*---

      For resonably priced MUA I would suggest:
      1.Yen Makeup
      2.Suki Ng
      3.Chris Fong

  32. Great list!!! It's helpful and thanks for sharing!

  33. Very helpful listing indeed! This helps allow when planning

  34. Crystal and Meng,
    Happy researching! Thanks for your support.

  35. Fantastic website! Excellent detailed guides and the web links provided are very helpful. I recommend this site to all my friends which are getting married. Well done and thank you for your great effort, Lee Ann! :) - Amanda Tan

  36. The brilliant thing on this website is it has guides for everyone in Malaysia - Chinese,Malays,Indians etc. Its has tonnes of useful information for everyone. You don't have to keep on searching and searching on google. Every information is here under one website. Awesome!

  37. Great website, Le Ann. I'm looking forward to find a perfect location for my intimate wedding from your site :)

  38. Hello, any updates for the following news? For Imbi Palace.

  39. 1MDB said they did not authorize the demolishing of Imbi Palace, but the incident happened due to the dispute between the tenant and sub-tenants on vacating the premises. The Imbi Palace Group was then rebranded in Sep 2012. The website shows Imbi Palace is now located at Jalan Barat. I believe it is business as usual probably. Anyone has updates?

  40. Hi I'm thinking of having an outdoor wedding ceremony at mines wellness hotel.anyone has experience with them before?i just got their quotation, they only charge 1000 for the ceremony, provided that u sign up for their dinner reception.i think it's quite worth it but am still considering.
    Anyone has any suggestion on this?

    1. There is a post on Mines Wellness Hotel. If there are responses kindly drop them there.

  45. Just curious - are you planning to cater Indian food for your wedding? Name is Jay and I am planning to have my sister's wedding next year.

  46. HI, my name is Jocelyn and I am looking for a wedding venue in Selangor/KL area on the 27th JUL 2013, and Melaka 28th Jul 2013. I went to several venues and mostly are fully booked for the dates I want. Your review here is very helpful :) By the way, do you have any good venues to recommend in Melaka? Thanks

    1. Hi Jocelyn,
      How many people are you planning to cater for?

  47. Hi, i am looking for a chinese restaurants with minimal "chinese touch". Streamed down to imperial China (Tai Thong Group) but did not see much reviews on that place especially for weddings. Perhaps someone can guide to some forum or recommend some other places?

    Thank you!

  48. Great website ,its very beautiful blog and great info...
    Hotel furniture

  49. Excellent website!!! Make my life easier! Love this.

  50. Hi Le Ann,
    I just attended a wedding dinner in Golden Dragonboat Restaurant @ Jln Kampung Pandan. It was a bad experience as the overall dinner was not good. (My cousin chose this restaurant as this was the only choice for him that time, other restaurants were fully booked)
    Venue: The hall is big enough for 75 tables (there are more than 3 or 4 halls), think this is the only advantages. Lack of parking space. Unclear direction in the restaurant.
    Food: Overall not good. The roasted duck is not bad.
    Services: The manager is very cooperative, as she will try to get what we have requested. However, the most of the waiters are part time, keep breaking the glass, beer bottles, and plates...somemore, they are rushing to clear the dishes. The dinner was started ontime without any delay at 730pm, but they are still rushing till 3 dishes in the table at the same.
    MC: My cousin was super unlucky to get the 'famous' fatty mc who don't know how to speak nice word. My cousin's parent felt so humiliated when the mc keep saying he will be rich tonight after receiving so many big angpao (in fact he is a rich guy already)...and he keep standing in front of the couple, blocking them until the camera man and photographer started to complain.

  51. hi...
    im having my wedding at the end of this year and it will be an Inter-Racial Marriage...Chindian + Malay = 1 we r planning to have a garden concept kind of wedding..

    1. Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Wherever the location of your wedding, could I ask the permission to post some of the photos on my blog? Hehe...Anyway having a garden wedding at the venue listed above would cost more. You can try searching (venue search) for "Club". You will see the results of 1. Kelab Darul Ehsan (48++/p) 2. Subang National Golf Club (48nett/p). Try also searching for Wedding package less than RM100 per pax. There are more options. You tried Bora Ombak?

      Avillion Port Dickson is a popular choice as well.

  64. Hi Lee Ann,

    Please advise..

    Thank you

    1. Hi Shiausoo,

      Dynasty Dragon SS2 Mall - 150 tables
      Han Dynasty in PJ - 90 tables
      Sin Choi Wah, Kepong - 100 tables
      Hee Lai Ton, Seri Kembangan - 100 tables
      Palace, Setia City (Imbi Palace Group) - 200 tables
      Klang Palace - 120 tables
      Jaya Palace - 80 tables

  65. hi...very very useful forum..perhaps you could holding my wedding reception in January....I'm looking for a place (hotels in kl/subang preferably) where I can get good Indian food for <1k and can accommodate 400+ guest......thanks

    1. Venue that provides below RM1K Indian wedding food, :
      - Midlands Convention Centre

      - Subang National Golf Club

  66. hi, am planning to have my wedding banquet sometime in Mar - Apr 2014.
    Is it possible to get Tropicana Golf Club?
    Any other recommended venue. 50 - 70 tables.

    1. Hi Kc
      Tropicana Golf Club is usually booked well in advance, and there are a lot of internal club functions too. Gotta check with them. Better luck in getting the lunch slot.

      Chinese Restaurants, you have Noble Banquet (Bukit Bintang) and Oriental Pavilion (Jaya 33) which receive good comments.
      Bukit Jalil Golf Resort is not bad, not as nice as Tropicana Golf Club in term of ambiance.
      Sime Darby Convention Centre is good too.

  67. Hello.... i just would like to ask, how about the oriental banquet? For the food n services n the environment ???

    1. Check out Oriental Banquet's comments: here

  68. Hi....I'm looking a place to have my wedding banquet in Mar 2014
    Prefer poolside or garden ( good view) . 150-180 pax buffet

    1. Is Lake side ok? Lakesight at Plaza Kelana Jaya has a beautiful view. check with them.
      The other one is Ciao Ristorante KL
      Hotels like Cyberview Lodge, Equatorial Hotel Bangi, Carcosa (expensive) also provide garden wedding.
      If you don't mind the distance Tanarimba Janda Baik, Bukit Tinggi, with its cool temperature and serene green environment is a very nice location. it has poolside wedding.

  69. thinking of dynasty dragon ss2, i'm only looking at table of 30-40 and maybe sharing the banquet hall in the common area.any idea if their sound proof is good?

    1. Martin,
      I was there for my cousin's baby full moon party. We occupied a private room, music was played and it was quite good for me, didn't hear any external noises. The place is big, has huge sections and some private rooms. their ballroom sits 40 table just nice for you.

  70. Dynastydragon (ss2) outlet, can accommodate 190 table. Feel free to call 03-7954 6328 for more information.

  71. Feedback for Holiday Inn Glenmarie Shah Alam: We had our wedding dinner reception in Holiday Inn Glenmarie. We had to deal with 2 wedding planner representatives from the hotel because one left the hotel half way and the 2nd one took over. However, due to internal miscommunication the handover was not done well. As a result, we had to arrange for a meeting to go through everything with the new planner Ang Wei Jing. Thereafter, all the further planning discussion was via email. It went well at the beginning as she confidently stated that all will be as per my request. However, on the actual day there were a few items that I’drequested earlier that did not go as discussed. In particular:-
    1. The decorations it was not as per planned & discussed.
    2. The guest signature book was changed last minute and we were not informed.
    3. No bowl/paper bag was provided for keeping of red packets even though we'd asked for it.
    4. Besides that, she also did not introduce my coordinator (my sister who is in charge of the flow for the day on behalf of the bride & groom) to the floor manager for the event day even though I had communicated to her earlier plus my coordinator purposely met her 2 days earlier from the event day. Hence, this lead to the floor manager was unaware who was the coordinator during the event. He was difficult to find during the event day and hence during second march in, after the emcee announce our march in, the entrance door was not open and we had to open it ourselves as we couldn't find the floor manager at that point.
    5. Other service for the event that were not good was rude waiter, bridal cake was not served to VIP table, wine was not topped up promptly.

    However, on the positive note the parking was free and there are lots of space, the arrangement for bridal suite and complimentary room was prepared and ready by the time we checked in. The grand ballroom was very big, spacious and looked elegant with the lighting and decorated tables during the event day. No pillars hence there is good viewing of the slideshows and videos. The hotel has an LED screen right in the middle of the stage where it can be switched on to slide down and switched to slide up when not needed. It is big and clear and not required to have additional projector screen. There was plenty of space at the ballroom foyer during pre-dinner snacks and for guest to mingle around. Not much to say about the food served as it was as per the hotel standard. The advice here is, if extra deco is required perhaps good to outsource on your own as the value of the money will worth more than getting the hotel to do so. Make sure your coordinator are included in your discussion with the planner from the beginning so that if anything does not appear as discussed, you can consult immediately with the hotel.

  72. we had our ROM and buffet in a cafe - Marmalade Publika. Its a close celebration of love. For couples who want an intimate wedding, cafe could be a good choice.

    1. May I know how much this cafe cost u? How's the food? Thanks!
      Appreciate if u can provid me some info,

  73. hi, i plan to have my wedding dinner this June. Looking for Chinese restaurant with good ambience & food. do you have any recommendation?

    1. I personally think Grand Imperial (there are a few branches) has the best ambiance. Food wise, Tai Thong and Oriental Group of Restaurants are good. For both ambiance+food, check out the Tai Thong outlets. You can use the ballroom of Tropicana Golf Resort if you get the Chinese wedding package from Tai Thong restaurant.

    2. Thanks Le Ann. But now i face a problem. had 2 venue to choose. first is Grand Imperial One Utama & another is Vistana Hotel. Which one is good in term of food & ambiance of hall?? thanks for your comment

    3. The reviews I gathered:
      Grand Imperial One Utama-food is good. Good service. Does not have to share the hall with walk-in guests because it's small. The restaurant looks small and not comfortable.

      Vistana Hotel KL-negative point about vistana is the location and pillars at the ballroom. for a hotel their food is good. The actual day dishes are good, better than food tasting session. Decoration and services are good too. Overall, satisfied with the weddings. i just pay for the menu price the rest of it such as decoration, pa system all are free from the hotel! Everything was absolutely perfect. Lovely decoration. Banquet manager and staff were helpful. good food. highly recommended.

  74. Hi, im looking for a place for 800paxs indian wedding dinner, just the hall such as civic centre below 8k (just the hall).the thing with civic centre is not allowed for alcohol.

    1. Maybe you can try convention centres and clubs like Midlands Convention Centre, HGH Convention Centre, Kelab golf negara subang, KL Golf and Country Club

  75. hi. im holding a dinner for my course. so its kinda university kind of event with 100pax of students and lecturers. the theme is bollywood night, so is there any place that can suit to my event? with the budget of about rm70 per person. thanks for your recommendation :)

    1. you may need to hire a separate decorator for a bollywood theme. Not sure about school functions, but for weddings the venues that suit the budget are:
      Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam
      Federal Hotel
      Kelab Darul Ehsan
      UPM hall
      Subang National Golf Club

  76. Hi.I am planning to have my wedding dinner on Feb 15. Received few quotations. The most resonable price i received is from "Corus Hotel". Have any one tried Corus Hotel before? How is the food, service, location, decoration, parking...etc? Thanks in advance...

  77. Hi, I could not find Tropicana Golf and Country Resort (not the chinese restaurant) here. Anyone had experience there? Please share. Thank You.

  78. Hi all, I have a really small wedding (60-70 guests)? Please suggest wedding venues with reasonable price. Thanks

    1. Any specific requirement? Chinese, Malay, Indian food? location? budget? Here are some venues to consider.

      Tropicana Golf Resort - there are small rooms, and open courtyard
      Sin Choi Wah Restaurant - there are small rooms
      Ming Room BSC

    2. Thank you for your replied. Do you know any chinese restaurants close to USJ areas? We prefer private small room which can fit 6-7 tables. Budget below RM1000 per tables. We found a lot of restaurants offer complimentary items with minimum 10 tables ;( Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

  79. Hi Le Ann,
    I am looking for a venue in KL/PJ for a private function for 50 pax. Budget around RM100 per head.
    Can you suggest some suitable venues? Thanks so much

    1. Why not try Kumar's Restaurant, they cater to all types of functions, wedding, engagement parties, private dinners and corporate events.

      They have this beautiful 1st floor and the environment is amazing.
      Call their PR Manager Patricia at 03 7734 7742

  80. With smaller function rooms around your budget or slightly more:
    - Lakesight (
    - Noble House KL, Oriental Banquet PJ, Ming Room... (Oriental Group) have smaller private rooms - There are packages for fewer tables but about RM100 per table more expensive
    - Sin Choi Wah Restaurant in Kepong
    - Summit Hotel Subang USJ
    - Dynasty Dragon in USJ
    - Armada Hotel PJ
    - Crystal Crown Hotel PJ
    - Cititel Midvalley
    - Vistana Hotel
    - Bukit Jalil Golf Resort, Tropicana Golf Resort

    - Other venues for intimate small weddings, price varies: Rama V, Tamarind, Passion Road, Top Hat (many small rooms), Dusun Garden Fairies Hulu Langat, Teeq Brasserie Lot 10, Bankers Club KL, Ciao Ristorante KL (Italian food), Carcosa (expensive).
    - Otherwise with bigger halls/ ballrooms you may have to share/ partition the hall and share entrance...
    - Besides having the banquet indoor you can choose the outdoor venue such as poolside, terrace, garden
    - Usually complimentary items/ banquet benefits come with 10 or 20 table or more. You can either settle that yourself using external vendor or discuss about adding them with extra cost.

    1. Hi Le Ann,

      Would like to check Teeq Lot 10 still operate?

    2. I got this message from one of the readers.

      "Hi Leann,
      As I was planning for garden wedding, I came across Teeq Brasserie so I went to check out the place. It seems that it has been closed down, interior is quite messy, not sure if renovation was going-on or it was just left with the teary parts.
      Their website had closed down, so I am pretty sure that at least, the restaurant is no longer there. "

  81. may i know the price for KL and SELANGOR HOTELS 2014 / 2015?

  82. Great list. Thank you for sharing. Appreciated

  83. Hi, Le Ann, thank you for the comprehensive list which has much aided my research in planning for my wedding. Do you have specific reviews for Klang Palace (Centro Klang) and Grand Imperial (Casa Klang)? Will appreciate that very much. Thank you.

    1. Hi Yun Yun
      Unfortunately there are not many reviews for these restaurants. There is one: - Aug 2011 -
      "Grand Imperial (Casa Klang) - High class dining restaurant, best for wedding."

    2. Thanks Le Ann. I saw one of the photos by PG Robin. What are your thoughts on the suitability of Botanic Resort Club for a garden wedding? Thanks!

    3. Hi Yun Yun
      I created a new post on Botanic Resort Club:
      Hope it helps.

  94. Hi Le Ann,
    I signed up with Vistana last Sunday at the PJ/KL wedding fair. It had one of the best rates around - cheapest set menu is RM938 nett for 8 dishes (no prawn). If I remember correctly, RM1.1++k will give you 9 dishes (with prawn).

    Also, signing up at the fair was really more beneficial if you have more min 20 tables. THe benefits: 2 extra rooms for parents to stay on that day (1 night, with breakfast included). Deposit was 1k only, normally is 5k (walk-in rate). And paying 1k deposit gave you a high tea at Majestic hotel. If you chose to pay more (RM1.5k), they give a 90 min oil massage at a spa instead.

    Even if you don't sign up at the fair, I think the package is really worth it. They give you a 3 day 2 night stay at one of the other YTL hotels (you can choose between Tanjung Jara, Camerons, or Gaya Island), a night for the couple on the wedding day, room for tea ceremony, pre-wedding dinner cocktails by the poolside, and 80% invitation cards. That was the most we heard after going to a few booths at the fair. Also, you only need to pay up till 50% and the remaining 50% you pay on that day. There were some hotels that wanted you to pay till 80% or even in full before the wedding dinner night.

    I also have to commend the lady who served us and who will be our wedding planner - Andrea. She was very nice, no hard sell, very polite. She even asked us to come by the hotel to visit and she gave us a mini tour, even taking us to see the bedrooms. And she even offered us 2 free drinks from the bar, on the house! Really good service.

    The only negative part is the hall can only sit 30 tables max and you have to choose who gets put behind the pillars (There is one right in front blocking the stage). They have LCD screens to compensate though.

    On the whole, I am very happy we chose Vistana as it fit our budget, and the wedding planner was someone whom we could see was very comfortable to deal with (I think that is very important as well!). I am looking forward to my wedding as at least this part has been taken care of after so much research being done.

    Hope my comments help other brides-to-be! :)
