Hotel Maya KL has astutely transformed all its restaurants into one large, synonymous dining area.

Most restaurants may have stopped social distance dining, but that doesn’t mean you should be lackadaisical about it. COVID-19 is still very much a real thing, and you should continue keeping yourself safe.

Luckily, Hotel Maya KL is doing its part in helping you out. The hotel is doing something that not many has thought of, and it is to open up all its dining outlets and fusing it into one cohesive restaurant. By doing this, guests have ample space to sit anywhere they wish with adequate social distancing, yet still order what they want from any of the dining outlets.

Still Waters is one of the dining outlets in Hotel Maya.

“We have put a lot of thought into ensuring a seamless experience despite the strict guidelines to social distance ourselves,” said Hotel Maya KL general manager Sharmini Moganasundram. “After much contemplation, we decided to open all our dining venues with one innovative menu, featuring signature items from our Japanese and Cantonese restaurant, Still Waters; all-day dining, Maya Brasserie; and deli, Ramah Tamah.”

“This not only allows diners to keep a safe distance from each other but allowing them to still enjoy their meals from their preferred ethnic cuisine at very affordable prices,” she continued.

The menu itself has three sections: the Set Menu, Malaysian favourites, Western items, and Japanese dishes. We got to try out the Set Menu that featured predominantly Chinese cuisine with a touch of Japanese influence — this menu is especially perfect for sharing between two people and comes with an appetiser, soup, several main dishes, and a dessert.

Our personal favourite had to be the Braised Hot & Sour Szechuan Soup for a starter that whets the appetite, while the Braised Duck with Ginger and fresh Shiitake Mushroom was especially tasty with familiar flavours — it’s not a dish you’d find in many hotel restaurants.

But of course, if you’re still wary of dining outside and prefer dining from the safety of your home, there’s always the Beepit delivery to consider. Place your order here to be picked up or delivered to your home.
