Al Rawsha Restaurant, Kampung Pandan

During my recent visit to KL last weekend, my boss suggested that we go for a Middle Eastern dinner. She recommended this place, Al Rawsha Restaurant, located at Kampung Pandan. It’s a huge place, and it’s open 24/7. It’s my first time having Middle Eastern meals :)


The menu to extensive middle eastern fares! We had no idea what to order, we gave boss the honour, after all, it’s so nice of her to give us a treat here :D


She ordered Chicken and Lamb Mandy. Mandy is traditional Hadramaut earth baked rice. It’s long grain rice, like Basmati. Per serving of Chicken Mandy(half chicken)  is MYR 20 and Lamb Mandy is MYR25. Everything is served together in one huge plate.

P1460222-1It is served with salsa-like chilli sauce that tastes just like the chicken rice chili sauce and yoghurt I think…  Both chicken and lamb were very tender, simply perfect!


The rice was also somehow very appetizing and it’s not as dry as it seems. Filling and satisfying.. oh ya.. be warned that the servings are quite big… I saw a lot of other dishes served at the table around us which are also very mouth watering, food presentation is definitely there, but unfortunately, we all have no extra tummy space to order more. Will go again next time…

The came the tea with little teacups.. Teapot tea is served at MYR 10 each.


The one we had was refreshing and pleasant, Teapot tea mint… comes with fresh mint leaves.. you have options to have teapot tea Karkadih, Meramyah, Hail or Zhorat, and i have no idea of what  all these are except for mint. Besides pot tea, they have quite a selection of drinks from fruit juices, soft drinks, and even cocktails.


For the sweet tooth, here’s the dessert counter… loaded with various types of puddings, puffs and cakes…


I believe this is Cream Caramel @ MYR8. Smooth and silky… I like it.. and it’s not too sweet..


I’m not very sure if this is the Custard Pudding, Custard Aljanna or something else actually :P It is served chilled with marie biscuit and chocolate rice sprinkled on top… Also nice, not very sweet, I can eat the whole thing myself is permitted… :P


Then you have ice creams! Also with lots of different flavours to choose from…


If you fancy sweeter stuffs, I would recommended the sweets from the bakery. They have baqlawa, sfouf, zonod al set, basbosa and lots more… and they are nice enough to let you sample the sweets..


I kid you not, these are really sweet stuffs… and they taste good! but remember, if you are to have it.. not too much ya…


He’s so nice and patient with us, letting us sample nearly everything and even taught us how to pronounce the names. He’s from Arab (which part, am not sure) and speaks english and a little malay.


The reception… right in the middle after the entrance…


The Kebab station…

P1460268-1The Shisha counter….


The place is big,  clean, 2 floors in total and will be able to cater private functions and parties too.. one thing though, it’s a bit hot in there… i don think it’s air conditioned..

P1460290-1Ambiance is certainly there…  with arabic music playing in the background..


Special corner for private functions, i think they have private rooms as well…


Outside of the restaurant…


Jeng jeng…. look at that! It’s like a castle… with ample parking spaces at the front and back compound.. but during peak hours, it can be full house…
