The private dining rooms at PRIVATE @ The Chow Kit hotel were the perfect place to ease us back into dining out since MCO2 was announced. We were still wary about the number of daily COVID cases and were looking to avoid crowds.
With PRIVATE @ The Chow Kit, you get an entire guest room to yourself and your dining party. This is as exclusive as exclusive gets! It was interesting to step into the room to see a big, round dining table, laid out in white table cloth with table setting and chairs, in lieu of a bed. We did have to fill up a form prior to being brought up to the room, which was slightly odd considering we’re there for a meal, but I guess it’s almost like checking in for the night!
Sunday Roast and Fish and Chips
Our waitress guided us all the way through the experience by keeping us informed about our meal, every time she came into the room. As we were dining in a guest room, if we wanted or needed something, we’d have to call down to the restaurant and request for it (much like in-room dining). The TV was also available to us to use (though of course we didn’t use it, as we were out for a meal and not to watch telly. But if there was a bed in the room…….).
As we got settled in, our waitress arrived with welcome drinks and snacks. She then gave us some time before she came back with our meals. We had pre-booked two Sunday Roasts for both my husband and myself, whilst our son ordered fish and chips on the day.
Our beef was slightly overdone passed medium, but the fish and chips was the perfect balance of crunchy skin and moist flesh. Plus, they serve you the entire fish, fresh from Sekinchan. Definitely a different take from the usual fish and chips around town.
Walk in or pre-book?
PRIVATE @ The Chow Kit is available throughout the day, just as long as you pre-book and prepay. You do have to decide on your meal items prior, so that the kitchen can prep ahead. Have a look here for the menu.
Priced at RM150, the Sunday Roast package for PRIVATE @ Chow Kit includes a glass of house wine. The price is slightly higher compared to dining at the restaurant itself, but you do get the entire room to yourself. You get the guest room for a three-hour period, although we were done in two.
