Pearl and I recently headed over to Hilton Petaling Jaya for a preview of their “Crustacean Carnival” – an all-you-can-eat buffet of the freshest locally sourced shell fish at the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant Paya Serai.

The buffet promotion runs from 1 to 31 October 2019 and is available for weekday lunch, dinner and weekend high-tea, priced at RM68 nett, RM85 nett and RM122 nett respectively. The buffet features a variety of shell fish cooked in authentic Malay, Indian, Western and Chinese styles with live cooking stations set up across the restaurant. You get to pick your choice of fresh shellfish, style of cooking, flavours, and watch the chefs whip up the dish for you at the grill, and pastas stations, or simply do it yourself at the noodle station.

The Malay dishes include Siput Sedut Masam Manis, Lala Masak Belado Hijau, Udang Sambal Petai, Kerang Masak Lemak, Udang Lipan Masak Tomato, Ketam Masak Lemak Nanas Cili Padi, Lokam Bakar Berempah and Siput Buluh Bercili.

Chinese main menu comprises Butter Oat Prawns, Stir Fried Clams Kam Heong Sauce, Seafood Black Bean Fried Rice, Stir Fried Squid with Dried Chilli and Black Pepper Mussels.

However, what I was most impressed with was the Indian selection which features curry and spices with dishes like Crab Masala, Prawn Curry and Squid Pakoras. As for the Western dishes, comfort food like Crab Ragout, Crustacean Lasagne, Seafood Paella and Stuffed Potato with Seafood Marinara.

If you prefer fresh seafood, the “Seafood on Ice” section has fresh oysters, Black Lips Mussels, Green Mussels, Poached Tiger Prawns, Slipper Lobsters and Yabbies served chilled on a bed of ice.


Paya Serai – the hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant, has been refreshed and now features a more modern, stylish and comfortable ambiance

Pasta station. Pro tip – bring over some fresh seafood to add into your pasta!
Baked oysters smothered with cheese. I couldn’t stop eating these!

I’m not often impressed by buffets but this one was truly satisfying, not to mention good value for money!


Paya Serai is located on the lobby level of Hilton Petaling Jaya and is open daily from 6.00am to 10:30pm

A special 25% discount is available for Hilton Dining APAC members and a 15% discount for selected credit cardholders.
