There is also a few extra food station at outside which specially cater during the Ramadhan Season only. Outside station consists -Malay Dishes, Seafood Grill, Stir-Fry Kuey Teow, Malay Pancake, Fried Banana and fruits. It was a brilliant idea to set up the grilling station at outside to prevent smoking odour to stick on diners clothes.

Other than pastries and cakes, a dulcet of dessert is also a great way to end the meal. Dessert Station serves – ice kacang, cendol, chocolate fondue and homemade sorbets with different flavours. All dessert has its own condiments to mix and match to suit diners taste.
Personally recommend the homemade lime sorbet as the sour taste really kicks in and helps to digest the food.
