The Dining Room

Set beside the resort’s main pool and wreathed by towering fig trees in which resident Great Hornbills can often be spied feeding on the Strangling fig tree’s bountiful fruits, The Dining Room is a culinary canvas on which our chefs can present a spectacular cross-section of dining experiences, ranging from an international breakfast laced with regional delicacies, to elegant, chef-driven occasions.

You will find our lavish signature buffet breakfast here, including a made-to-order juice bar as well as several live stations, in addition to a-la-carte options, and it is also an ideal venue for a quiet lunch. The ambience and mood changes subtly in the evening as the restaurant becomes a romantic fine-dining experience, with candles reflecting off the pool, and signature dishes influenced by local ingredients.

Indulge in a gastronomic feast for the senses and savour our nine-course degustation menu specially curated by Chef Chai, and complemented by a hand-picked wine selection from our walk-in wine cellar. Believing in a multi-sensory approach to food, one that engages all the faculties and stimulates the emotions, Chef Chai bridges the fundamentals of contemporary European haute cuisine with cross-cultural techniques and the sensibilities of the Asian palate. His culinary style amalgamates a breadth of textures, aromaticity and ingredients, artfully innovating through utilising a more expanded range of flavours and intensities than a traditional degustation menu. Dishes, such as black & white Iranian Sevruga Caviar served with scallop umai, sago pearls and kaffir coconut dressing, are elevated or imbued with piquancy through the addition of aromatic herbs and spices like kaffir lime, chili, lemongrass and masala spice. The flavours of each dish resonate like a chord of notes – each note quite distinct, cascading effortlessly in layers, complementing or counterbalancing other flavours in a harmonious whole.

24 hour advance reservation required.

The wine cellar at The Dining Room holds one of the most extensive collections of old and new world wines in the region. Recognized every year with the prestigious Wine Spectator award, the cellar showcases more than 450 labels of the most discerning vintages, directly imported exclusively for The Datai Langkawi. Our resident Sommeliers will be happy to share their knowledge in a private wine tasting, or to assist you to choose the wine best suited for your meal. Our exclusive wine pairings for degustation menus or special events are hand-selected by our Sommeliers in close collaboration with our Chef de Cuisine. Be sure to visit the wine cellar and explore the range of vintages stored in precise humidity and temperature conditions.
