If you’re planning to spend an afternoon out with your loved one, here are the best places for halal high tea in Kuala Lumpur 😊

Reservation is necessary, and do check with them (or their Instagram) as their afternoon tea menu may vary. Otherwise, you can also order from their regular menu and try their signature lasagna!
