When it comes to Hotel Restaurants in JB , Doubletree by Hilton JB will be my ultimate choice due to Service standards and the array of delicious food prepared

The selection of dishes at Makan Kitchen is the most impressive so far.

The Chinese section was stocked with Dim sum , Double boiled soup , Chicken rice , Noodle soup and plenty of dishes that will guarantee too satisfy your tastebuds.

The Malay Kitchen was by far the best in everything . The satay was the best i ever had.

The Indian Kitchen has one of the best Tandoori In JB served with a nice plain naan.

Then of Course, for those with a sweet tooth , the Dessert station offered a dazzling of both local and international Desserts.

There was ice kacang ,waffles, crepes and assortment of cakes , tarts and ice cream.

The Cashier Ms Aliya was very helpful with seating guest at entry , The Chef at the Malay Kitchen Mr Khairul was so friendly , he went the extra mile too explain the dishes in detail and not forgetting Restaurant Manager Mr Keminda was down to earth by ensuring all guest was having a pleasant meal at Makan Kitchen by checking with guest cinstantly on how is everything. All staff was very attentive and always around to clear finished plates from tables

I love the dining experience at Makan Kitchen, It's reasonably priced and well worth every cent spend for The Best Service offered and quality food prepared.

So many choices, and hot coffee/tea were included. Freshly made hot noodles, ice cream, salad, cakes, indian food, chinese food, etc. RM48 nett when we went for lunch on a weekday. Plates were cleared quickly and our glasses of water constantly topped up as well. Highly recommend if you are a big eater.

The food is of variety.. too many options to choose from. If you are a big eater, then worth the money. If you are the type who won’t eat a lot, then just pay for ala carte.
