Well, it’s that time again. The holy month of Ramadan starts on the 18th June, 2015, our Muslim friends fast during the daylight as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

As a nation of people who loves our food, many restaurants and hotels also offer Ramadan buffet in this period to allow Muslims and also non-Muslims to enjoy a meal together.

This year, G Tower started early and invited the media to have a sample of their buffet spread more than a month prior. I was happy to be part of the group.

First, the most important bit: the buffet will be held at GTower from 20th June till 14th July 2015 and priced at RM 95 NETT for adults.

Like many such buffet offerings, GTower will be serving traditional Malaysian cuisine with quite a few live cooking stations  under the direction of Chef Sherry, who has more than 20 years of experience in the kitchen.

Starting appetizer, there’s assortment of salad, kerabu pucuk paku, sambal, keropok, papadum, telur masin, ikan masin, jeruk, and a pretty good selection of ulam-ulam as well. I was slightly disappointed by the lack of tempoyak, but I’m hopeful they will have it on the actual spread.

Many main dishes are served in clay-pot to keep retain the freshness, and they comprise of rice selections such as nasi briyani, fragrant rice, nasi ulam, and so forth. Ayam panggang berempah, daging masak hitam, and dagang salai masak lemak cili api, sambal udang petai (i love this!), ikan pari, tenggiri masak asam, and more can be found.

The best dish of the night for me was their ayam percik istimewa, and for the fans of roast lamb, kambing bakar enak is available (seemingly every Ramadan buffet places now has roast lamb).

Not all the live cooking stations were available for this tasting session, but there will be mee rebus, mihun sup, rojak singapura, and popiah basah upon request. The rojak wasn’t something I enjoyed though, as I prefer the Penang version.

Overall, the spread should satisfy anyone who loves Malaysian cuisine, and the pricing seems to be in-line with the location and dishes offered. So if you’re planning a buka puasa event, GTower should be in your consideration.

  1. wow… that’s fast… 2 months to raya and now review already?

  2. Ayam percik!!! Haven’t had that for a long long time, love it!

    • suituapui: it’s available at ayamas! I’m not sure if there’s ayamas at Sibu tho.

  3. Wow…how time flies…soon Ramadhan will be upon us…and I have to brace myself for the mad traffic in my neighbourhood too because of the buka puasa bazaar, but then again, it also means that I can indulge in those food…yay!

  4. KY, great looking buffet. When I go out for buffet with my friends some of them have bad habit of loading too much food on plates and food touching each other change the taste and look of it. I rather take small amount of the dish each to taste food better. Going back is reason of buffet. But friends lazy for that why.

    • Vickie: Haha, you’re right, having smaller portions aldo make sure we get to walk a lot more, which may contribute to SLIGHTLYYYY increase in calorie burning and thus, allowing us toeat more!

  5. om nom nom nom 🙂
