The festive season is soon upon us, which means its time to tuck in to some delicious holiday menus around KL.

Christmas is a wonderful time for many — aside from all the presents to look forward to, there is also the food. Festive meals have always been a special thing, especially in Malaysia where hotels and restaurants go all out in celebrating the holiday season. One way is by introducing its own festive holiday menus.

Most of the festive menus you will find on this list comes from hotels with the sole exception being from Nobu Kuala Lumpur. If you’re looking for a slightly different way to celebrate the festive season, the fine-dining Japanese restaurant is definitely one to look at. Aside from that, expect seasonal favourites spread across in a delicious buffet spread.

Be sure to scroll down below to check out the full list.
