Oriental Banquet 東方喜宴 PJ


For a list of other wedding venue options, pop in here.

I have shortlisted Oriental Banquet as a potential wedding reception venue. Went to the restaurant to look-see and lunch with my cousin who was here from Singapore. Section A: refer below, is a very nicely decorated hall, one of the grandest I've seen so far for a Chinese restaurant. Section B is opened for walk-in guests. If the wedding requires a bigger space, the partition in the middle will be folded up to join both sections. Including private rooms and other smaller areas, the restaurant could fit up to 800 people. However due to other reasons we went for Tropicana Golf & Country Resort's Spring Garden.

The banquet capacity for Section A is approximately from 25 to 32 tables. It has a tall stage and a big projector screen. Section A itself is without blocking pillars, however when the partition is opened up to create a larger hall, you will see pillars lined up at the center. The PIC (Nuptial Initial) assured me they will rent next door building parking space during weddings. PIC Peggy is nice and accommodating. You may want to inform your guests about this as there were nasty traffic incidents happening before caused by parking issues. I find the service quality above average and am very pleased with the food.

The reception hall is equipped with LCD monitors at the side to project your wedding videos/ montage. Sound system is not tip top and may require effort tuning or simply bring your own system! If you are up for a live band or something. Oriental Banquet, a perfect Chinese wedding location comes with contemporary setting fuses traditional style and food.

Went to Oriental Banquet for wedding dinner - nice environment; looks grand, reception was slightly small. food is quite decent, easy parking. however pillars were blocking the view of the stage.

oriental banquet - good food, pillars has tv screen with video camera that pans to the bride/grooms. only problem was the restaurant may have 2 or 3 simultaneous weddings at the same time, which is irritating because they yum-seng at different times.

"I had my wedding reception at Oriental Banquet. It was GREAT. My guests had very good comments about the venue, food, and service from the staff. The supervisor for the night was Cici, she did a really wonderful job and was very accomodating and flexible to our requests. I would recommend her, although you will need to communicate with her in cantonese, which was no problem for us. There was only one slightly negative feedback, the sound system needs a little bit of tuning if you're planning to bring a band for performance, as it can get pretty load and sharp."

"I wont recommend this venue. Parking is a hassle...so once the next building parking is full...you have no choice but to park on the main road. Summons from MBPJ are common. Imagine..after the Dinner, your guests go back to their cars and see a summon on their wiper! Talk about destroying the mood. "

"The couple’s family had 2 sessions of food-tasting at Oriental Banquet because they were utterly unhappy with the quality of the food, but on the big day, everyone had high praises for the mouth-watering dishes. I think the only set back with the venue is that the Banquet Manager who doubles as the emcee can be quite a difficult person to work with, and even the sound tech coordinator had to multi-task as a waiter."

"PIC brenda was nice as well... we managed to get walk in gifts for all guests, cloth napkins as i really hate the normal paper tissue...didnt charge me extra. the invitation card is as per normal. 5 cards/table. "

mkjesswong @ Jul 2010: 
I went to the food tasting last Friday, the food just so so nia.
"There is a surcharge of RM150 for beer. Their door gift is only a balia choc in a box & it's cost RM1 each."

  1. This banquet hall looking more big and spread. Oriental banquet has capacity around 40 to 45 tables. Food is also looking testy which is seems in photograph.

  2. Attended a dinner in Nov 2011.

    Parking is a big problem...

    Food: I prefer Oriental Pavilion @ Jaya 33(same group) which is just 1-2km away

    Ambience: better than Oriental Pavilion
