The holiday season is here and it’s also the time where people gather with their families over one common thing that unites us all together — food.

While the feasting and fellowship is one to look forward to, the decision-making on where to dine at is known to be a daunting task for many. Although many are familiar with Kuala Lumpur’s large amounts of F&B outlets, we are spoilt for choice and often get stuck trying to decide.

There are so many things to take into consideration, but some of the more prominent one includes the number of family members for reservations, and budget.

Indeed, “Where do we go for food?” is probably one of the most dreadful questions one can ask another.

To ease your troubles, we’ve compiled a list of places in the Klang Valley that are suitable for large groups, serves great food and offers discounts for some of the credit cards that you are using.

PRIME @ Le Méridien


If you’re looking for a good place for steak, it has got to be at PRIME in Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur. While the restaurant prides itself in serving only the finest halal certified imported beef, it is also a proud recipient of a string of awards such as Best Fine Dining Restaurant by TimeOut Food & Drinks Awards Kuala Lumpur 2017, HAPA (Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards) Best Western Cuisine by HAPA Regional Series 2016-2018, and more.

With executive chef Antoine Rodriguez leading the kitchen with over 30 years of experience, guests can expect their taste buds to be tantalised. Dig in to signatures like The Wagyu Prime Rib, Blackmore, Ribeye, and more.
