The days of being stuck at home are over as you can now dine out responsibly during RMCO at your favourite hotel restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.

With the announcement of the newly sanctioned Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), expect your daily life to progressively improve for the better. One of it is being able to dine out at your favourite restaurants and enjoy extended opening hours without having to rush through your meal.

While we continue to question how hotel buffets are going to be like in the weeks to come, there’s no stopping you from enjoying a la minute dim sum and three-course meals at some of the finest hotel restaurants in town. Whether it’s a romantic date night (throw in a staycation, why not?) or a family outing, here’s a growing list of hotel restaurants that are now open for dine-in.

Curate, Four Seasons KL

If you’ve been enjoying the delicious takeaway menu from the team at Four Seasons KL, you’ll be delighted to know that Curate is now open for dine-ins. On top of enjoying Executive Chef Junious Dickerson’s Southern American cooking — think fried chicken and waffles, you may also want to sample comforting Indian dishes prepared by the hotel’s new chef. We’d say the lamb shank biryani is a must-try alongside other classics like palak paneer, varuval and more.
