Yana's Birthday Dinner @ Shisha Lounge, Solaris Mont Kiara

September 05, 2013

Salam and hello everyone! I feel it's been too long since the last I did restaurant/food review, kan? Last week (29th August), it was my sister, Diyana's birthday. She turned 26! Her fiance and I were planning to do a suprise party at first but somehow the birthday girl just had to ruin it! So, it turned out to be just a birthday dinner..with no surprise.. boooo.

Anyway, we wanted to go to a place where it opens late, good food, and fun atmosphere. We headed to Shisha Lounge in Solaris Mont Kiara to celebrate! I've read and heard amazing reviews about this place and Im glad to say it didn't dissapoint all of us that night.

We ordered some salad as appetizer and as for the main dish, Koobideh Kebab (lamb and beef) which came with Saffron rice, along with basket of Naan. Ya Allah.. everything that was on the table tasted SUPER DELICIOUS! I couldn't stop putting taking the kebab and om nom nom nom! I think we ordered too much (tamak sangat sebab dah lapar kan), but definitely satisfied!

Our table was situated near the stage and dancefloor. Shisha Lounge has a live band that plays I think almost every night according to the regulars there. Around 10.30pm, the band started playing to interesting Persian and Middle Eastern tunes as well as a mixture of English too. They are really good and have great vocals! I forgot to take a pic of the band because I guess I was stuffing my face with the food like a beast.. It was fun to see little kids and adults dancing the night away :)

Shisha Lounge is a restaurant/bar/lepak place..you name it. Indoor seating are the usual dining tables, whereas for outdoor there are gazebos and coffee tables where you can lepak and shisha the night away. None of us wanted to shisha that night so we just lepak lepak sembang.. We shifted to outdoor after dinner because we felt that the music was too loud and we nak lepak.. hehe.

It was time to bring out the cake! The pretty manager and his team came out from behind with colourful wigs, and cheered and sang Happy Birthday to my sister! Thank you for the sweet gesture, Shisha Lounge!

Thanks Atikah and Azleen for the cake, cupcakes and balloons! Sedap! :) Wondermilk can never go wrong kan..hehe

We ordered some Persian tea and would you look at the presentation!! So exclusive and traditional. Beautiful! Gorgeous tea glasses and pots!

After much laughter and chitchatting, we left about 1.30am as most of us were tired and got to go work the next day. Once again, Happy Happy Birthday to my sister who is also a bride-to-be in a week's time! May your days ahead be filled with happiness and love. I know Im not a good sister some time, but we are sisters, forever and always.. Eh eh..emo plak. 

I really recommend this place if you're into Middle Eastern cuisine, and want a fun atmosphere and ambience for celebrations or any kind of parties. Do call up and make reservations because when we were there it was Thursday night and it was full house! Can't imagine weekends!
