The Kenyang Restaurant takes its name from the luxuriance of a sated appetite. Located in the main building, guests may sit within the air-conditioned interior, or outdoors on the verandah overlooking our main pool and the lake behind the dune. The cuisine celebrates all of the cultural influences of Malaysia’s gastronomic paradise, and is dependent on local bounty.
Like the rest of our resort, the Kenyang Restaurant focuses on relaxed luxury. Private function rooms for small celebrations are available upon request.
A special menu for in-room dining enables guests to enjoy the luxury and privacy of their own chalets where they can be indulged with good food and superb ambience. Beach barbecues are another feature of the resort.
Kampong life on the East Coast is centred on fishing and cooking; like all Malaysians, people here love their food! Influenced by Thailand via Kelantan, the cuisine reflects a different mix from the West Coast. The famous dishes of the region are nasi dagang, rice cooked with fenugreek and wrapped in banana leaf with a rich fish curry; nasi ulam with its blue rice coloured by a local flower; ayam percik, a grilled chicken in a mild to spicy coconut marinade; many kinds of kerabu salads, the most famous of which is green mango dressed with Thai-style sauce; the freshly-made keropok lekur, a fresh fish paste fried and eaten with chilli sauce; roasted whole fish with a range of sauces from chilly to tamarind to the slightly sweet or salty, encompassing all the flavour groups and everything in between.
The restaurant at The Kasturi takes its cues from local cooking, and sources as many ingredients as possible from the area. We even have a local farmer growing herbs and vegetables for us! Menus change according to what is available at the time, and our talented chef will happily cook whatever you fancy.
