Perhaps the most exciting part of the day for every fasting Muslim is hearing the adhan of the Maghrib prayers. Finally releasing that hungry monster inside us, sinking our teeth into that warm, juicy, tender meal that we’ve been anticipating the whole day.
Of course, fasting and cooking meals at home can take a toll on our energy. So have a break and treat yourself to some well-prepared Ramadan buffet for a change! Here’s a list of restaurants that deliver delicious affordable Ramadan buffets right to your homes in Kuala Lumpur!
8 Affordable seafood restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley that deliver right to your doorstep!
1. Let’s have a little Baba Nyonya in this house – Little Heritage House
I don’t know about you, but I love me some delicious Baba Nyonya cuisines. Having been living in the city and away from home for so long, I couldn’t help but drool over the next time I’d be able to make a trip down to Melaka for a quick Baba Nyonya foodie fix.
Luckily Little Heritage House, they now can deliver their ramadan buffet for as low as RM 98 for 3-4 pax! This includes their delicious chicken meat roll, assam tumis stingray and more! Yum!2. Get sushi for just RM 0.80! – Fujiyama
From personal experience, this is by far one of the tastiest most affordable sushi joints I’ve come across thus far! Their deals are not only attractive but their sushi are truly delicious and well proportioned.
Imagine, you can get a sushi serving for as low as RM 0.80! They even have huge party platters that feed up to 10 pax, with a Buy 3 Get 1 Free promo! So what are you waiting for? Order up now!
3. Do you miss having halal dim sum? – Mohd Chan Malaysia
Last but not least, how about some delicious Chinese Muslim cuisine by Mohd Chan Malaysia for Iftar? This is also one of the few restaurants which I personally enjoyed out of this list. Mostly because not only is their food great, but their dim sum too (which they are known for) and their services (they were very friendly)!
They also offer frozen dim sum delivery which starts at RM 98!
4. Putting food on your table, puts food on theirs – Picheats
What I personally love about this restaurant, aside from its colourful options of foods, is that all their foods are prepared by chefs who are refugees from Palestine, Syria, Iran, Pakistan and more!
And together with our local chefs, they aim to help families from the refugee community to be financially stable and allow their children to receive an education. They say, “As they are putting food on your table, you are putting food on theirs.” On top of that, their meal boxes are affordable!
5. Enjoy Thai street style boat noodles from old recipes – Little Rara Thai Noodle
Living up to their motto “Every bowl from the heart”, you get to experience true Thai street style cuisine for an exceptionally low price at Little Rara Thai Noodle. Using a family-old recipe, the crew whips up their sweet boat noodles made up of 100% Thai products that are halal-guaranteed.
Their Maggi Tom Yam Talay is perfect if you’re sharing with a group, and it’s a popular choice among foodies with a starting price of just RM 18! But if you are ordering individual servings, you can have a taste of their speed boat noodles or noodle soup that range from RM 6 to RM 11.
Mmm, sounds good for the tummy!
6. Feast your eyes (and mouth) for one of the cheapest steamboats around! – Rot Thai Buffet Steamboat and Grill
Known as one of the cheapest halal Thai steamboats & grill around KL, Rot Thai Buffet offers mouthwatering options of authentic Thai sauces that’s sure to make your tummy full. Here, you can choose between their tasty seafood sauce, rice sauce, steamboat sauce or their popular Special Thai sauce! And part of their Ramadhan buffet also includes sweet desserts like the Pulut Mangga and a tasty colorful blend of Bubur Jagung!

In the mood for some Thai food? Here at Nong & Jimmy Thai BBQ Seafood, their market-fresh seafood comes with a delightful twist of Thai BBQ dishes that leave customers craving for more. In fact, they are one of the oldest seafood joints in KL.
Fans love their famous charcoal-grilled crab however currently that isn’t available on the menu. However their top recommendations are their N&J Signature Fried Rice Set, Thai Seafood Curry Set, Pad Thai Set and Family Set!

Packed with rich and robust flavours, her meals are often raved all over her Instagram comments as she updates her meals weekly. You can even order one of her popular Nasi Bajet that goes for only RM 3.50, but it’s only available around the Kota Damansara area.
9. A taste of home away from home – Serai Garam
Do you miss the taste of that spicy creamy coconut gravy dripped in juicy chicken glazed over white rice and a side of pucuk manis? I bet you do now, just that description itself makes me hungry.

Wallahi, your iftar will feel amazing after a hearty Yemeni meal like this! And if you have some extra space in your stomach, how about adding on some of their sweet desserts like Cream Caramel pudding or Kunafa with cream and cheese?
For those who are looking for ala-carte meals instead of sets:
11. Get some Seoul food for the soul – EID Authentic Korean Cuisine
Now we know how Malaysians go crazy for everything Korean, including of course, Korean cuisine.
EID Authentic Korean Cuisine restaurant is run by a Korean-Muslim couple, Yu Hyunwoo and Han Narae, and has been featured in several local media such as TV3’s “Jalan-jalan Cari Makan”, TV2’s “Chikiboom” and TV3’s “Borak Kopitiam”.
