To celebrate the holy month of Ramadhan after the challenging long day of fasting, nothing is more rewarding than gathering with family and friends over a pleasurable festive buffet. While hotels all over Malaysia are abuzz with the preparation of meals to satisfy the hunger pangs, Cyberview Resort & Spa @Verandah Rrestaurant invites diners to delight the taste buds with its Iftar buffet within the backdrop of a serene tropical garden. Absolutely a feast on “live-on-wok” seafood galore when Chef Imran and his team generously stir-fry in action on fresh swimming tiger prawns, fish, cockles, bamboo clams and stingray ala-Thai style.

After being greeted by warm and hospitable staff during this review, the next sight to greet me was the noodle station where between the three types of laksa in the earthen pots alongside with the noodles and condiments, my personal favourite was the Laksa Sarawak – aromatic peppery taste with a sourish end note. One of the best among the rest I have had so far, I licked the bowl clean, and then tucked into the terrific and soft as velvet lamb with the yoghurt dip, the spicy cooked on the spot tempoyak fish and some of the traditional curries with just tad bit of lemongrass/serai rice.
For dessert, as much as I desired the blissfully alluring and tempting Malaysian delicacies, my meal ended with a bowl of pulut hitam/black glutinous rice porridge. Slightly sweet for someone like me who hardly take sugar, but worth the try and one which is always my favourite. Stuffed to the maximum, I thanked the staff and left with a broad smile on my face.
