Tak lapuk dek zaman: Ketam Viral rekindles a love for long-cherished traditional recipes, some rarely seen in local restaurants, in its 2023 Ramadan buffet.

Showcasing live cooking stations at its flagship Bangi venue, adorned with classic Malay decorations, this popular crab-and-seafood purveyor promises a taste of nostalgia to warm the heart throughout the fasting month.

Award-winning Malaysian chef Wan Rathnor and his handpicked team have curated a captivating selection of rotating specialities, spanning Ketam Masak Lemak to Udang Galah Diraja, plus stations for 'kawah' and ‘wok hei’ flavours.

To spice up the experience, customers can choose to add on Ketam Viral's crab bestsellers such as Chilli Crabs, Salted Egg Crabs, Ketam Kam Heong and Ketam Buttermilk Lurpak. These can be purchased through preorder bookings; the crab prices are based on daily market rates, available in Regular, M, and XXL sizes. 

Ketam Viral's Ramadan buffet takes place 6pm-10pm, from 24 March to 19 April 2023. WhatsApp or call Ketam Viral at 012-580-5113 for reservations, or visit ketamviral.restaurant/ramadan-buffet-2023 for more information.

Enjoy an Early Bird Special price at RM142+ (save RM20) by booking from 25 February to 16 March 2023. The regular price is RM162+ per adult or RM85+ for children between 3 to 10 years old. Children below 3 years old are welcome on a complimentary basis.

Ketam Viral will contribute 2% of the value of its Ramadan buffet receipts to Rumah Bakti Al-Kausar  and Rumah Pengasih Warga Prihatin.
