  • The Asam Laksa is a must try. Their cake selection is also good. Need to check their daily lunch special, and you need to book because they will run out of their lunch special during lunch.  more »
  • I love to be able to see how things are produced. Here they gave us a free and very interesting tour of the facilities. Tehy explained the history of the company and how the pieces are made. The store...  more »

  • Love coming here Free transport by the company to and from the centre from pretty much any hotel in KL - just call them with the hotel details +60 3 4145 6122. I must have done the tour three or four times now, but I don't tire of it. The tour itself takes less than an hour. If you want to try your hand at pewter working, there is 2 options: 1) The School of Hard Knocks @ 65RM. This is about 30 minutes, you make a pewter bowl, get a certificate to say you made it and you get to keep the official "The School of Hard Knocks" heavy cotton apron. 2) The Foundry @180RM. This takes around an hour. you get to make something either freehand or by using one of the foundry molds. Then there is the shop. This place is fabulous. You may be lucky enough to find end-of-line items or new ones due for release. The prices here will be the same as in KL - no-one is allowed to undersell or devalue the pewter ware. This is a good thing - no haggling, no price matching, no thoughts that you might find it cheaper elsewhere... saves time. And for what is arguably the BEST pewter available... I have no problems paying the price.
  • A great place to visit for a short trip in KL! It was very fascinating to learn the history of how the pewter industry had evolved over the years in Malaysia at the museum at the Royal Selangor Visitor Center. You could either opt for a self guided tour or request for a knowledgeable guide who will show you the key exhibits in the museum. The next part is the factory tour, where you will get to see first hand the process of how the pewter products are brought into completion. It’s truly wonderful to see how much effort is being put into making each and every one of their product and how exquisitely detailed the workmanship is. There are also classes offered at a cost if you are interested to get a hands on experience on making your own pewter souvenir. Overall we all agreed that it’s a day well spent at the Royal Selangor Visitor Center! :)
