HORNBILL RESTAURANT AND CAFE
Because the location of the park itself, is around lush of grenery area and within a huge garden, what about having a restaurant and cafe that could cater to the visitors of The KL Bird Park and public as well?

A rustic malay kampung style look architecture building within the Hornbill Park in The KL Bird Park, you will find Hornbill Restaurant And Cafe (write up article on restauant click here for more) You can enter the restaurant either from the Hornbill Park or from the front entrance before entering The KL Bird Park. A three tiered restaurant, ideal for any type of functions,  with the capacity of
Upper Deck   100 pax
Middle Deck   100 pax
Lower Deck     60 pax
Dining in at the Hornbill Restaurant and Cafe can be quite an experience as not just serving of local and western fusion menu but in quite a reasonable portion at reasonably fair price (seriously not expensive quite affordable). And on occasionally get a visitor or two from the permanent residence of the park itself. Rhinoceros Hornbill or a couple of the park feathered friends joining in to have a peak at what you are having.

Please do not feed the birds as they have their very own food intake and diet prescribed especially for them by the parks veterinarian and care takers. Wouldn’t want them to go on a tummy ache after consuming what we gave them right?
