Business hours: 11am to 11pm, daily (Mondays to Thursdays, closed from 3pm to 6pm; Fridays, closed from 12.30pm to 2pm).
AL DIAFAH Express is a hit with the Arab community who come from as far as Putrajaya and Bangi for a taste of the Middle East.
Owner Salleh Kym started with a small shop selling food products such as dates and nuts.
He expanded his business and opened Al Diafah Restaurant in Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, followed by another in Kajang.
“We set up this new branch in Taman Putra Kajang three months ago due to requests from regular customers at our main branch.
“We plan to open restaurants in Shah Alam and Damansara in one to two years,” said Al Diafah restaurant manager Harris Harvey Siddick.
