Don't feel like eating Japanese? Then order their Vegetable Penne (JPY1280) or Butter Chicken Curry (JPY1280) instead! These appetising dishes will be just what you need to cap off your amazing day at USJ ?

Now that we've got your meals settled, you might be wondering where to perform your prayers. While there's no dedicated prayer room in USJ, here's a simple hack that we've got from many Muslim travellers - simply head over to the Guest Services counter near the entrance of the park and let the staff know you'd like to do your prayers. They'd kindly provide you with a room to do so! Do note that you'd have to take wudhu at the nearby toilet though.

So, if you're heading to USJ for your vacay soon, make sure you drop by Red Lobster and SHARE this piece of good news with your friends who are visiting Osaka too!
