1. Al Diafah Restaurant
A definite eye catcher once the sun sets in Sri Petaling, Al Diafah Restaurant is the best spot to hit up for authentic Arabic cuisine. We recommend the Royal Mixed Grill for a plethora of marinated, juicy cuts of meat and crunchy toasted Arabian bread stuffed with lamb kebab dipped in Tahini Sauce to share with the table.
Be sure to try the signature Mendy dish- an Arabic version of basmati rice. This well-seasoned dish with either chicken or lamb is worth the Sri Petaling parking hassle. Enjoy!

Pop by this Middle Eastern café any time of the day to tuck into some feel good food and fast service. We recommend the Haneeth Rice, a traditional Yemeni dish. Haneeth meat is traditionally prepared in a hot clay oven cooked by burning coal and palm fronds which gives the meat in this dish its unique taste. Its definitely worth the visit.
If you’re in the mood for fish, try the Sayadieh Fish- a flavourful red snapper and rice dish.

This fast-paced and casual dining spot is perfect for when you want to get a quick and filling bite. We recommend the Arabic Tandoori to play up the usually tandoori you get. With a slightly different spice composition, we’re sure you’ll come back for more. For mains, we suggest you get the Kabsah Lamb- a meat and rice mix much alike the biriyani but better.
If you’re looking to try the exotic, give the White Chicken Karahi a go. This dish, although more popular in India and Pakistan has been adapted to the Arabic flavour profile. We’re sure you’ll love it!
