A Sky High Experience Of Having Dinner In The Sky Malaysia.

When I found out that I was going on a sky-high experience of having Dinner In The Sky, I was beyond stoked.


My Dinner In The Sky experience was a hefty RM308.00/person, inclusive of a 3-course dinner prepared by Sheraton Hotels. Not exactly cheap if you'd ask me, but where else can you get the chance of being hoisted and strapped mid-air, while enjoying dinner? On that note, bookings are absolutely essential.

There was also an option of having additional Insurance Coverage (RM59.00) in the event of rain. No one wants to have dinner in the rain right? This option would allow me to chose another time slot to return another day. Else, it would be dinner on the ground, indoors. Luckily for me, weather was perfect on that eventful day.

My roving Dinner In The Sky experience was held at Bukit Bintang, slightly off the Twin Towers radar, compared to the previous (and more strategic) locations.

The entire experience took one hour, which I seriously thought was way too short, as though I was on an eating spree. There were 2 seperate dinner slots to pick from, Sunset at 6.30pm or City Lights at 8pm, and I picked the former. As instructed, I got to the venue an hour before dinner, at 5.30pm, had a beer at the temporary waiting area, before boarding at 15-minutes pass the hour.

My 3-course dinner included an appetizer, main course and dessert. 

For main course, I had a taste of the Fillet Mignon and Pan-seared Chicken Roulade, shared between me and my friend. The starter and dessert menu on the other hand were fixed. Alcoholic beverages are also available upon requests.

The food was at most - average, at least it was for me, knowing that they can definitely do better. Having said that, the experience was not really about the food, but more of having dinner, in the air. As such, I wouldn't place such high expectations on the food served.

Starter: Italian Buratta cheese, confit herb cherry tomato served with pesto sauce and wild arugula salad.
Dessert: Mango Mousse with Pomegranate Lamington.

The experience was accompanied by music playing at the foreground, alongside 5 staff and 22 diners on board.


Many have asked if the overall experience was scary? My answer is no. I enjoyed every moment of being up in the air, despite being extremely short-lived. On second thoughts, perhaps I was spending way too much time taking photographs rather than enjoy the moment.

Was the overall experience worth it? If you're in for the experience - I'd say go for it. If you're in for the food - I'd say you're better off dinning at a restaurant. On a side note, I think I enjoyed being in sky more than anything else.

Next, Plane In The City? Coming soon in Kuala Lumpur.
