Manza Dinner Club

The next Manza Dinner Club outings will be on:

  • Saturday 12th January

Manza Dinner Club is held on the 2nd Saturday night of each month. The aim is to try out a different restaurant every month in the KL area. This may range from 5 star to a popular local restaurant. It also gives members (and their partners) a chance to meet new people in a relaxing environment, especially those who are working here.

The bills work on a number system where every couple or individual will be given a number on arrival to place beside them. This allows the waiters to make out bills accordingly. Everybody will be responsible for there own costs.

We also request a charitable donation of 10 ringet per person each time we dine, to be donated to a Manza charity.
