0 The Sultani @ Flamingo Hotel, Ampang (Sultani Musical Buffet)

It was a bargain at RM40++ and we were amused enough to try it because it was a buffet accompanied by live musicians playing Indian Classical music. Amused not for a lack of appreciation, but because our daily music consumption consists of a more modern playlist, which is largely in contrast to this.

Who were 'we'? A group of friends I gained from an old job I held as an Accounts Executive in an insurance company. We make it a point to catch up annually and this time we settled on a buffet dinner at The Sultani.

We met when our status was still 'single'

Some of us are now married with kids

The Sultani has a nice romantic set-up and a serene view of the lake outside. There were little pieces of artistic elements which gave character to the place, like the wall entrance with tiny broken mirrors, the lights and decorative tableware.

The Sultani is located on the top floor of Flamingo Hotel
(5th Floor)

The view - a lake and fountain

Expensive and unique tableware on display

Perfect for romance

Service is not too bad. The staff were friendly. Though this welcomeness was not obvious on our arrival, they soon warmed up to our cheerful banter. Our little girl DD was enthralled by the musicians. The charming girl befriended them and we were soon treated to a few songs. We were humoured when the musicians played along to her "twinkle, twinkle little star".

Small matters like these added to the joyousness of the occassion. There's nothing worse than walking into a restaurant staffed by the hoity-toity. This was not the case. I like.

Great music

Foodwise, there was not much variety, but I am by no means too disappointed.  The company of good friends made it less important to criticise. As such, I enjoyed the food thoroughly.

Briyani rice and Naan bread was served with various meat (lamb, chicken, fish) and vegetable curries. I've photos of some:

Peas and potato curry


Tandoori chicken

Minced meat rolls

Sweet desserts

 I'm somewhat fascinated by the carving design on this chair. Holy macaroni, is that...

Princess Beatrice's Hat?!
