Great ambience with traditional Malaysian dancing and great service. Food was also delicious and would highly recommend the ribs in particular! Hosts were wonderful and attentive as well

The cultural show starts at around 730pm as I believe. The resto is laid out in such a way the diners can have private spaces for groups. You also have the choice of indoor air condtioned dining or al fresco
