"Juadah Malaysia to the World" at The View Cafe @ Best Western i-City Shah Alam - Ramadan

Ramadan is on the horizon once again and Best Western i-City Shah Alam is all set to wow you with a delicious Ramadan buffet at their restaurant, The View Cafe (located at Level 5 of the hotel) from 7.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m. nightly, starting from 18 May 2018 to 12 June 2018.

Reflecting a globalised yet homely Malaysian feel, the buffet is aptly named "Juadah Malaysia to the World". It's centred upon the spirit of family and togetherness, and to help set the tone, there will be tropical coconut-themed specialties and live music nightly.

The View Cafe dining room

I had the pleasure of attending its review this week and the spread that greeted me at The View Cafe was nothing short of impressive. According to the hotel and restaurant management, the buffet will feature around 200 dishes across a 7-day rotation, so there will be something different each day and surely something for everyone. There were buffet stations both inside the restaurant as well as outside on the garden patio.

Al fresco garden patio

Yes, the garden patio. The restaurant extends out to an al fresco garden patio which overlooks the colourful i-City Theme Park. And if you know i-City, you know how the Theme Park and its surroundings light up at night, so it should be a dining experience that's a treat for both your taste buds and sight.


Speaking of sight, feast your eyes on these pictures I snapped of some of the main dishes:

For the sheer size of the menu, I think this buffet offers really good value at the following prices:

  • Early Bird Promotional Price: RM89.00 nett per adult (if you book before 25th April 2018)

  • Regular Price: RM109.00 nett per adult (if you book after 25th April 2018)

  • Child and Senior Citizen Price: RM59.00 nett each

  • Plus... buy 9 at Regular Price, get 1 FREE.


If you're going to Best Western i-City Shah Alam for the first time, I would recommend using Waze. It could get a bit tricky at night because there isn't really a clear sign pointing towards the hotel, and you could end up next door at i-SoHo... like me! So use Waze, OK?

Anyway, the "Juadah Malaysia to the World" buffet should provide a delectable treat for Muslims breaking fast as well as everyone else wishing to partake in the lush feast. With a spread so lavish and at such a great value, response is expected to be really good. So call 03-5521 9000 today and book early to avoid disappointment (or email enquiry@bestwestern-icity.my).
