This traditional Malay-style restaurant looks like a super-sized kampung house; the menu is an upscale and less spicy execution of traditional Malay dishes such as rendang and creamy-coconut curry fish.

Try the Langkawi Malay-style juicy tenderloin beef and potato wedges stir-fried with dark soy sauce and spices and udang kebab serai – grilled prawns skewered on lemon grass stems.

PaPa Iranian Restaurant

Serving up a variety of Iranian cuisine, PaPa Restaurant – located at the beginning of Pantai Tengah – may not look like much from the outside.

Sheela's Restaurant

This German-Malaysian restaurant serves international and local fare; the freshly-squeezed juices are especially refreshing.

The fabulously avant garde SunSutra is a posh restaurant along Pantai Tengah flanked by two clubs – Sunba Retro Bar and SunKarma. Boasting a wonderfully extensive menu of fusion cuisine that is competitively priced, you’re more likely to have a nice night out here than at one of the hotel restaurants; try the chocolate molten lava cake – it’s simply out-of-this-world.
