Hi guys and gals,

My fiancee and I are gonna get married next year in September. I know we're a little short on time, but anyone know of any good pork free/halal places for chinese wedding banquet in the Klang Valley?
My budget is approx 1200-1600 per table and gonna have about 30-35 tables.
Currently looking at Sime Darby Convention Centre and Setia Convention Centre.
Wanted to get Hao Xiang Chi in Setia Alam for the amazing decor and good pricing but the date I'm looking at is already fully booked.

Thanks in advance!

Ah Yat is not halal. TO be halal your restaurant MUST have the HALAL Cert from JAKIM! Restaurants that dont serve pork are still not Halal. Remember this!

Sime Darby Convention Centre is decent. By the way, if you are also considering a good Wedding MC, PM me. I will recommend you a very witty MC.

People still dont understand : without HALAL cert from JAKIm.... the restaurant is not HALAL! It doesnt matter if they got pork in the menu or not. as long as there is no HALAL CERT from Jakim...the place is TAK HALAL.

Chickens have to be slaughtered in the Islamic way by a CERTIFIED Jakim slaughterer... then baru JAKIM will acknowledge it. If the chicken is slaughtered by a Muslim Slaughterer who is NOT certified by Jakim, it is still not halal.

In Chinese restaurants, all chickens that were supplied to them were slaughtered by Myanmar, Vietnam and Chinese people. You call this Halal is it?

'PORK FREE' restaurants are not HALAL to Muslims cos the Chickens were not slaughtered by a CERTIFIED JAKIM slaughterer. You all understand now?

So pls stop the silly ' OH this place is halal cos they dont serve pork' kindergarden nonsense.

Thank you for all your input!
And yes, I do agree with you regarding halal and pork free restaurants.
However, my guest are okay with it being pork free thus not much of an issue for me on that.
I've asked Sime Darby, but the main issue is they either have maximum 30 tables or minimum 40 tables.
Whereby Im looking at around 35 tables thus unable to settle for Sime Darby.

seem like "HALAL" this word become so sensitive. people mention guess is ok with just pork free. no "HALAL" cert is required to be presented infront of the guess or what so ever.

think now adays people are over reacting sometime. be calm and cool walk it thru.

thank you all for the suggestions and i agree with Erwin Lew, there is no need for all the over reacting as my guest are fine with both Pork Free and Halal.
I am just looking for suggestions and both options are fine with my guest.
Anyway, just spoke with Setia City Convention Center, Nexus Connexion and Sime Darby Convention Center, all 3 confirmed with me they have Halal certification for anyone else looking for Halal places.

Well, most likely going to go with Setia Convention Center as the customer service from them is the best compared to all the other venues I've spoken with.
But they are quite expensive compared to sime darby though.

Chill bro.. there's nothing to be offensive regarding the halal or pork free issue... just giving some suggestion to watta... of course I believe watta will clarify again with all the suggestion above whether it is really got halal cert or not..

Setia Convention Center's food is not as good as Sime Darby's. Maybe cos Sime Darby has always taken pride in its food all these years. Well, up to you. As long as your guests like the food. In all Wedding dinners...we cant please everyone. there are bound to be some people who will complain about this and that. Anyway, good luck to you bro. Hope your venue choice is a wise one.
