    There is no short of Malay restaurant in this country. While we may have that one Malay joint we keep going back to, sometimes it is a given to splurge a little and dine in an upscale place. At Bijan, they maintain the traditional cuisine and cultural decoration but one could enjoy simple pleasure made better. Traditional dishes like Chargrilled Marinated Beef Turmeric Gravy, Bijan Duck Rendang, and Sea Bass in Turmeric Curry are few of the signature dishes here. The prawns are big and juicy, and the beef and chicken well tenderised provides even more pleasure over the taste. Sampling the finest cultural dishes in a calming and romantic ambience is not as difficult as one might think. 

    Tips

    Parking is on the roadside around the restaurant, with a jockey service.

    Things to expect

    Prices that are expected to come out of a well-established restaurant.
