A truly splendid spread of delicious food. Worth every single penny. Even my children loved the spread and enjoyed hitting on the dessert counters. Seafood was completely delicious. Overall, you would not regret spending money here. Quality is tip top. - TripAdvisor

It was my husband's birthday. We came simply by walk-in without making any reservation. Big space, good ambience. Wide spread of food and desserts to choose from. Food taste up to standard. Staffs were very friendly and accomodating. Especially Guna and Aman. They took care of the section where we were seated. They provide outstanding service with smile on their faces always. I requested from Hajar, another staff at the cashier counter for a favour. That is to surprise my husband with a birthday song and a cake (bought from their bakery). It was wonderfully fulfilled. Staffs were gathered to sing the birthday song while the cake was brought to our table at the end of our meal. Greatly satisfied, enjoyable experience and value for money. - TripAdvisor

5. 7 Spice Indian Cuisine


Excellent menu. We ordered fish head curry, garlic cheese King Prawns, onion uttapam, dosai rawa and B7 dosai chicken. Fish head curry was tasty, sauce was thick and aromatic.

Enjoyed their buffet both for breakfast and the Curry night. Great and vast selection of different dishes. For the curry night the staff was really good at explaining the different local dishes. This is good stuff and should be enjoyed regardless if you stay at the Doubletree or not. - TripAdvisor

Had buffet dinner (theme as Asian street), was well greater by wonderful staff and mouthwatering Asian cuisine spread.

The food here is excellent, the best steak ever can be found here.

We have been here several times and never disappointed. - TripAdvisor

9. The Grand Gem


My first experience of Grand Gem was as a guest in late 2014, and I was surprised that I hadn't heard of it before then. Both my wife and I love Indian food and, of course, I took her there the following week - needless to say, we've been regulars ever since. The service is attentive and responsive and the waiters are very friendly and willing to serve you. The food on offer is varied and plentiful ranging from North Indian to South Indian dishes. We like the openness of the restaurant which also benefits from music in the evenings emanating from the hotel lounge bar. Our overall opinion is that it is the best Indian restaurant in JB. Keep up the good work Grand Gem! - TripAdvisor

Very good environment and serving good Indian food. Like their kulfi(Indian ice cream) very much. Suitable for ala carte food for solo or set food for group of people - TripAdvisor

10. The Spice Kitchen


Everytime we came we try a different type of food but they fail to dissapoint us as the food are always incredible. We especially love the mutton briyani and cheese naan - TripAdvisor

Great food, great staff, nice ambience and reasonable price for their standard of service. Their Indian foods is less stronger in term of spices flavors compared to south Indian foods. Overall, I love their foods as it is cooked by real northern Indian national chefs. You're gonna feel like dining in India. - TripAdvisor
