Ticket can be bought at the designated Ramadhan Counter next to lobby on ground floor. Since it is located at the alfresco area next to the pool with the stunning seaview, the seating are quite limited which is around 80 pax. So be sure to make reservation in advance to avoid disappointment. For a group of 30 people or more, a private venue can be arranged as well in an exclusive setting.

As usual, breaking the fast with dates is a Ramadan tradition and the body can benefits from the date's high level of natural sugars. So, right at the entrance of the Roof Terrace, there are various type of kurma (dates) to buka puasa (break fast). The Northam All Suites Hotel Penang even make a date palm tree with all the dates poke on the banana tree trunk with toothpicks for decoration purpose. There are some other appetizers such as ulam-ulaman (raw vegetable) with all sort of sauces such as cincaluk, budu and sambals; Malay style of salads such as Kerabu Mangga, Acar Timun and so on!

The Northam All Suites Hotel Penang prepares the main courses in traditional Malay village style whereby the dishes are served in woks with charcoal burning below to keep it warm. Some of the tantalizing delicacies such as Daging Rendang, Sotong Goreng Kunyit, Ikan Masak Lemak and Ayam Percik. But same as any other Ramadhan buffet, all my attention is focus on the Kambing Golek! 

Besides the main dishes in woks, there are a few live stations in hawker stall concept where you can witness the preparation of the dishes you order, starting from the Asam Laksa, Kambing Golek, Roti Canai and Passembur/Rojak. Kambing Golek caught my attention the most as you can hardly find it elsewhere except during Ramadhan buffet. 

I took quite a lot of it as I think it is the best among all other dishes and probably one of the best in Penang. The roasted lamb may looked dry from the appearance but the juice was still being sealed inside. Honestly, I rated it highly until I went for the even better one in Ixora Hotel. (so now became 2nd best, or best in Penang Island, LOL!)

Satay (skewers) is available too with the typical condiments such as cucumber, red onion and even nasi impit to add extra flavor and texture. Roti canai and roti jala was being prepared on the spot too where you get to witness how they made it. Roti jala was quite impressive as I rarely see the making of it. But both of them taste heavenly together with the curry while they were still piping hot. 

Lastly, there were a big table full of desserts and fruits to end a scrumptious meal. The desserts here were more towards Western style, which I thought it would be better if they could prepare more traditional kuih-muih to match with their theme of Selera Kampung. 

Overall, the food are all above average. Since it would be a month long of Ramadhan, I think The Northam All Suites Hotel Penang should be in one of your to-go-list, especially given that the unique experience where you can break fasting together with friends and family while captivated by the ever-changing Penang coast's sunset as the backdrop.
