There is no second chance for a first impression. A calming and relaxing atmosphere accompanied by beautiful Gobo lights, Gobo Chit Chat at Traders Hotel definitely nailed their first impression, at least for me.
Greeted by their cheerful and lovely staff, I felt welcomed right away. As they highlighted their specialty dishes and themes for the coming Ramadan buffet, my mouth watered. From local delights to western fusion, they have it all.
Proceeding with the buffet, for my first plate I gathered some sashimi and sushi. I can’t say no to these two at any buffet. Verdict? The sashami was delicious and tasted so fresh, the fish felt like it just melted onto my taste buds. The sushi however was mediocre, as to whatever you can find at other buffets.
For the next few rounds, I indulged myself in their local delicacies including their “Kerabu Kaki Ayam”, “Ulam” and roast duck. There was so many to choose from I had to pace myself before losing tummy space for dessert. Despite my overall satisfaction, I had one let down which was the lamb. It was dry and almost tasteless, however, the Briyani that came with it was rich in flavour and overcame my disappointment for the lamb.
Must-try specialty this coming Ramadan:
Pengat Durian Pulut & Roti Benggali
At first I had some doubts as to tasting “Durian Soup”. However, it is a taste that grows on you! Who knew it was so good! It has a light taste, and not as sweet as you think it might be. Because of it’s light flavours, you can have a whole bowl without feeling “jelak”.

Final score: 7/10
Hope you enjoy your time as much as I did at Gobo Chit Chat, Traders Hotel KL.
