Channeling the exquisite flavors of yore to evoke nostalgia and curated to perfection, each time-honored dish is an ode to the exotic traditions of the East Coast. 

Don’t miss out on RWA’s immensely popular Gearbox Soup! Choose from a medley of artisanal offerings from kuih warisan tradisional like Seri Muka and Ondeh Ondeh to ice kacang, cakes, and cookies to end your meal on a sweet note. Table reservations made from now till 17 March will enjoy an early bird rate of RM98 for adults and RM68 for children and senior citizens. Standard rates of RM118 for adults and RM98 for children and senior citizens apply for bookings after 17 March.
