Since dining out has become an issue, stay safe and indoors with these Deepavali delivery services around KL and PJ.

The festival of lights is soon upon us, but alas, we’re still stuck in the confines of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO). What is usually a celebration of festivities that brings together families and friends is now a physically distanced one due to travel restrictions between states.

Of course, if you have relatives that live within the same district, having small gatherings is still fine. And now comes the question of what to have when it comes to celebrating Diwali. Seeing as dining out is limited to just two to four people a table, it makes having a family gathering nearly impossible.

One way to counteract this is by having your Deepavali meal delivered straight to your door. We’ve got a list of restaurants for you that are having its very own special delivery menus just for Deepavali. You’ll also probably be familiar with names like Passage Thru India, Frangipaani, Gajaa at 8, and Goa by Sapna Anand to name a few.
