Famed for their house-made ingredients of various selections of steamboat items, diners now can enjoy BUFFET-STYLE 'EAT-ALL-YOU-CAN' steamboat and barbeque dining for as low as RM 32.90++ (LUNCH) and RM 42.90++ (DINNER). Kids below age of 12 years, can dine at RM 17.95++ (LUNCH) and RM 22.95++ (DINNER) too!

5 Choices Of Soups

For Steamboat, one can choose from a variety of delicious soup base to go with the steamboat items. Take your favourite pick from new signature Prawn Soup, Tom Yam Soup, Miso Soup, Chicken Soup and last but not least, Curry Soup. I liked the Prawn Soup and Chicken Soup - best to bring out the original flavour of the fresh ingredients the buffet offers.   

In term of the soup base and freshness of the ingredients, Pak John definitely nailed it. They have made a name for themselves after their 1st flagship outlet at E-Curve, Mutiara Damansara in Petaling Jaya.
Usually packed during weekends and holidays, diners come with their family and friends for a mini feasting for the mouth-watering fresh and premium ingredients and other delectable selection at the buffet line.

Pak John Steamboat & BBQ is unique in the sense that they have their own manufacturing plant which supplies frozen and top quality food items to the market and thus also bring them in for the restaurant to be enjoyed by many.

My favourite items are the cuttlefish balls, lobster balls, sea urchin flavoured balls, fish ball with cheese and shrimp, fish ball with cheese, fish ball with fish roe and so much more. So remember to try them all, okay! 👍👍👍 

Seafood lovers must go for the unlimited refills of fresh prawns, clams, lala, bamboo clams, mussels, crabs, octopus, brown sotong and squids among others.

Meat lovers can hit on to barbeque or cook in the steamboat the wide selection of marinated beef, mutton and chicken in many kinds of flavours to suit your palate. From time to time, you can request from the kitchen special items of Smoked Duck, Abalone slice, Australian beef slices as well as NZ Mutton to eat them to your heart's content. The reason is not available on the buffet line is to curb wastage among the buffet.

Get your dose of fresh vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, spinach, sweet potatoes leaves kang kung, lettuce to all kinds of fresh mushrooms of oyster mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and button mushrooms.  

No steamboat or barbeque can be complete without the sauces. So Pak John's has crafted more than 8 kinds of sauces to go as a dipping sauce for the diners. Choose from super spicy sambal belacan, green chilli, sweet chilli with ginger chilli, Thai chilli sauce for the meal.

Noodles Oodles

I believe many noodles lovers, as well as my young son, will go 'ga-ga' over the large wide variety of noodles offering. Be wowed with not one but eight choices of noodles to eat from. Diners will be spoilt for choice with Udon, Ramen, egg noodles, Yee Mee, spinach noodles, vermicelli and much more to choose from.

Marinated Meat To Tempt Your Senses

I'm pretty impressed with Pak John's marinated meat as they are served in generous big chunky and thick pieces of meat - cut into nice portions and well-marinated in sweet, savoury or spicy flavours to suit many tastes of the diners. 

I enjoyed the teriyaki flavoured chicken while my daughter liked the black pepper flavoured beef. Well, my foodie hubby enjoyed everything there's to offer in the buffet line! 😋😋😋

Seafood choices are an abundance on the buffet - fresh and succulent prawn and all kinds of shellfish including the bamboo clams.
