A new hotel has recently open in town. Located in Bangsar South City, Kuala Lumpur, V E Hotel & Residence is a 427 hotel & residence that is strategically located surrounded by many corporate offices as well as various attractive food & beverage options.
It is my son’s 12th birthday celebration. After several failed attempts to get any responds from my reservation inquiry with another hotel, I decided to hold the celebration in the new all day dining located in V E Hotel & Residence.
The Straits Estate is currently running a special buffet lunch offer of only RM45 + 6% GST per person, valid till August 31, 2016 only. Indeed an attractive price. Lucky us! Not forgetting to mention that kids age 5 and below gets to eat for free (more saving for me) while kids age 6 and 12 years are entitled to 50% discount from the selling price. Very attractive price, isn’t it?
The restaurant is spacious. Because they only open their door recently, we were lucky as we practically had the whole restaurant to ourselves, giving opportunities for the parents to have a stress-free lunch and catch up while the kids have enough space to run around and enjoy themselves.
The buffet spread may not be as wide as some of the other places that we have been, however, I like the spread as it is of good quality. There are separate bread counter, noodles counter, dessert counter (my favorite), hot dishes counters, fruits and salad counter. Just enough for all of us. After all, how much can one eat? I would prefer to have quality food items vs quantity that we see in many other places. After all, the price here were very reasonable especially for small eaters like myself.

The service team in The Straits Estate are very attentive and friendly. Cheerful team indeed!
What touches me the most is the attentiveness given by the team. We brought in birthday cake that we bought from outside. When it was served, the cake were very nicely presented on a plate with beautiful and personalized birthday message. The team presented the cake with singing “Happy Birthday” with passion. Perfect way to end the birthday celebration!
Overall, although there were some minor areas of improvement here and there (as there always would be when it is a newly opened place), the team in The Straits Estate has impressed me. And the food has made it way to my heart. So much that I have confirmed dinner reservation for the upcoming Ramadhan Buka Puasa dinner gathering with my friends. Now, I look forward eagerly to checking out their ‘kampung style’ Ramadhan Buffet Dinner in June, 2016.
