This Section 17 spot is great for a hearty, meaty meal, followed by drinks with friends. The lot is long and spacious, so there's ample space to spread out as you tuck into their best — the Signature US Pork Ribs (RM78) doused in a zingy barbecue sauce. Don't miss the simple yet stellar sides to share too, especially the refreshing Watermelon Mint Yoghurt Salad (RM12). Cap off the meal with a cold one — they’ve got all-day beer promos (from RM69 for five glasses).

A visit to this crab restaurant is worth the gravy-soaked fingers. Your orders should include the Hoegaarden Seafood Pot (RM288) jam-packed with fresh lala, crabs and more, and the Thousand Island Sauce Pork Ribs (from RM18). If there's extra tummy space, order another round of crustaceans cooked in the crowd-favourite Kam Heong (from RM48) style. Call ahead to book a spot for one of the cosy, yellow-clothed tables for dinner, as Fei Fei Crab gets busy over the weekends.

Michele's Kitchen marks the spot for family-style dining over homely Hakka fare and more. For first-timers, the friendly owner recommends the house specials, like the tender Mooi Choy Kao Yoke (pork belly with preserved mustard greens, from RM22) and the asam-heavy Nyonya-style Steamed Fish (RM42). Also look out for traditional dishes like the Colourful Cold Platter (RM120) featuring painstakingly made jelly chicken — this requires advance ordering.

Decked out in long wooden tables, this casual but swanky Indian restaurant is prime for celebrations. The owners are friendly, service is prompt and food is consistently tasty! The menu of northern Indian eats is wonderful for sharing too. Get the must-have garlicky Lasooni Gosht (mutton, RM37), fragrant Mutton Briyani (RM20) and the Murgh Makhani (butter chicken, RM31). The latter is served with a side of bread so you can mop up every last bit of the creamy gravy.

Planning dinner with the gang? There's no better way to amp up your night out than with an Italian feast! This two-storey pizza joint might look small but the dining booths upstairs are good to fit six to eight comfortably. Dive straight for the crowd-favourite Umbrian Black Truffle Pizza (RM38.60) drizzled in aromatic truffle oil, and end your meal with a good bottle of wine from the beautiful floor-to-ceiling rack. You can also cop pasta dishes from next-door sister restaurant Grano Pasta Bar. We vote for the spicy Creste De Gallo Lisce (RM34.90).

Tucked in Kota Damansara's The Strand, this hidden gem serves mouthwatering Balinese dishes — perfect for sharing with hungry friends. Get the Paket (RM130) that sees a whopping 13 items, from meats like crispy fried duck and pork curry to vegetables and plenty sorts of sambal, all served on a big bamboo platter. For the true Balinese experience, book a table on the first floor where you can dine traditional 'lesehan' style — sitting cross-legged on the floor!

Along quiet-at-night Jalan Kamunting, this trendy resto-bar comes alive with crowds toasting to mezcal while chowing down on delicious Mex-meets-Mediterranean grub. There’s enough space for the whole posse — the tropics-inspired dining area is a long stretch with large tables, plus an al-fresco area for smaller groups. Kick off the night with a punchy cocktail like the Voodoo Old Fashioned (a twist on the classic cocktail made with dark rum, RM44). And when the party is ready to eat, order the Walnut Hummus with Pomegranate (RM20), Pork Carnitas (RM30) and Jamaican Jerk Chicken (RM65) to share.

Sporting an airy space that puts you in the mood for Thai street food, Jatujak scores high on our list when it comes to group-friendly dining. The variety of meats and seafood grilled upon order is excellent. Start with the succulent Grilled Pork Stick (RM11, for three pieces) and a round of Grilled Cockles (RM10) for snacking. Then for the main event, count on the slurp-worthy Red Tom Yum Chicken (from RM22) and Green Curry Pork (RM30) to satisfy. P.s. You're gonna want rice for this!

Gather your next dinner party around a bowl of hot, bubbling soup and karaoke on the side! This Bangsar hotspot is known for their spacious rooms, replete with hotpots and karaoke sets. Begin building your pot from the bottom up: first, soup. Get the Mix Soup Base (RM30) with the Sakura Pork Bone and Fresh Pumpkin — both are delicious. On toppings, don't miss the Hand Made Prawn Dumpling (from RM10), Imported Hong Kong Beancurd Roll (from RM16) and the US Prime Marble Beef Slice (from RM58).

Grilling meat over a charcoal fire — now that’s a smoking hot dinner to enjoy with the gang! Make sure to come with hungry tummies as the BBQ Set A (RM63) comes with large plates of pork belly, pork shoulder and baby octopus. You'll also want to snag an order of their signature Spicy Rice Balls (RM24) coated in shredded seaweed. Roll these into little rice ball babies and pop 'em on the grill — a delicious hint of smokiness comes through from the hot sauce that binds the rice together.
