  1. 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 have provided you with the access to the full list. There you can search by hotel, club, chinese restaurant, bungalow. There are about 8 bungalow options there for intimate weddings, Ciao, Courtyard Garden, Duchess place, Passion road. Also under "Club", Bankers club which is very classy place. Villa danieli (Sheraton Imperial KL) received very good review about their food, perfect for small weddings. Chinese restaurant, Ming Room is cozy and it serves good food.

  13. Attended a wedding dinner at The Bankers Club (Amoda Building) - I was pretty impressed by their cantilever staircase which was nicely decorated right in the centre of the lounge. Classy and nice ambience. Food wasn't too bad. However, this place is more ideal for small function. I am not sure about the max tables it can cater but anything less than 30 tables shouldn't be a problem.

  15. I went for a wedding dinner at Eastin, PJ last year and the newly refurbished ballroom looked absolutely amazing (in person and in the photos)! Parking is plentiful, the dinner was good, only the waiter for my table seemed a bit rushed and inattentive which I suppose can happen when they're busy.

  16. Hi Li Ann
    I just started planning for my wedding in 2013 and would like to get some ideas on venue that has no pillars, no fish-tank, and with a capacity of around 50 tables, kinda dont like the idea of sharing a wedding hall with few others couples at the same time.
    Many thanks. RS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi RS, You can search for the venue by the location you intend to have the wedding. Click on "Max (pax)" to sort the list of venue by capacity. That you will be able to see the options with capacity of 500 pax and above. Hmm.. fish tank is something not being discussed frequently. I think I know what you are referring to... some chinese restaurants have that.

  21. 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.

  22. Attended wedding dinner at Sime Darby Convention Centre. Good ambiance and waiters divide foods for everyone. This is good as it will prevent food wastage.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The food taste good? Sime Darby CC is quite a hit for wedding reception. I remember we used to dig in to the dishes shared by everyone. Now it is deemed more hygienic to use a separate utensil to scoop the food. If the waiter divides the food, it really helps :)

  32. This is a great site! Lots of resources! :D Cant wait for my access!

    Last wedding I attended was in Oversea Restaurant (PJ Armada). Restaurant's a bit small, not much ambience and bathrooms a bit cramped but the food was delicious!

    Other weddings that I attended were mostly in Kuantan Pahang. MS Garden Kuantan was pretty good: nice ambience, food was alright. Hyatt Kuantan was grand in terms of ambience but lacking a bit in the food department. Both wait staff however were pretty bad. Drinks required numerous promptings to be refilled, so much so that occasionally we had to help ourselves. Food timing was also a bit awkward as the last 3 dishes (vege, rice and dessert) would only be spaced by a few min in comparison by the occasional much longer wait earlier.

  38. Lets talk about the hotel that i engaged with for my wedding 3 years ago. It was Vistana Hotel. Overall was very good to me and the comment on the food from the guests i invited was good too.

    The only negative point was the parking at the hotel was very less and limited therefore the guests have to park their car right opposite of the hotel.

    I'd recommend the Vistana Hotel to several friends and they got the good service from the Hotel too.

  56. I've just attended a wedding at Shangrila where the venue is transformed into a mesmerizing, dreamy candlelight dinner for 60 tables. Instead of just round tables, the bride and groom put their friends in long tables, which was a great way to save space. Every table was adorned with fresh purple and pink roses. The wedding favor for all the guests was an unusual choice but fits the dreamy theme - incense.
