We visited the Blue Mosque then made our way to dinner here. Had a table next to the pass and could watch all the action in the kitchen. Really enjoyed the dishes, creativity on the plates with the flavours. Good to experience Malaysian fine dining.

Unfortunately I am not sure about that. Best to check with the restaurant manager directly. They are contactable via email or telephone.

Dewakan is a name from two Malay words. "Dewa", the Malay word for god and "Makan" which means to eat or just simply; food. To us Dewakan means food from God, and as a restaurant we want to honour the bounty and the blessing given to our land. We want to connect the ingredients from our seas, farms, mountains and jungles to a canvas that is our plate in the most interesting way we know how.
