Ever since the second Movement Control Order came into affect, Malaysians were no longer allowed to dine-in at restaurants or eateries forcing them to take away their food or use food delivery services.
This has somehow impacted the business of several restaurants, but one restaurant decided to adapt to the pandemic and came up with a smart way for customers to enjoy their food.
From dine-in to drive-in
Can’t dine in at the restaurant? No problem. Padi House Cyberjaya and their sister company TokioKafe Cyberjaya have...

Padi House in Cyberjaya went viral and became a hit among Cyberjaya residents recently after the eatery offered a ‘Hidangan Kereta’ experience.
Instead of coming into the restaurant and have their food served at their tables, customers can now enjoy eating their food with proper dining set from the comfort of their own cars!
According to Padi House, if you’re bored eating food out of plastic containers, you can have a change of scenery with meals from as low as RM10.
In an interview with Free Malaysia Today
, Padi House owner Leow Kim Ngan says although the response so far is very good, he’s keeping a close eye on everyone to ensure no breach of SOPs.
“All 10 Padi House outlets were hit very hard during the pandemic, as our sales have dropped by 80%,” says Leow.
“We always have to think out of the box. Keeping silent just like during the first MCO is definitely not an option,” stresses the 45-year-old.
“In this second round of MCO, we have to find a way and continue to survive while minimising the spread of the virus, so our SOP is very strict.”
He added that after patrons were done with their meal, their trays and cutleries would be collected for cleaning and sanitisation.
Such a creative initiative from the restaurant, and we foresee many other eateries would follow suit soon to sustain during the COVID-19 pandemic.
