Dinner In The Sky is a unique dinner experience that uses a crane to hoist diners, table and waiting staff 150 feet off into the air, giving them an amazing bird’s eye view whilst enjoying exquisite culinary feast. To complete this experience, diners can expect to not just marvel at the view but take their gastronomically journey to a whole different level with a special-made Italian menu served by chef Danielle Rossetto from Ferdinand’s, which is listed as one of Malaysia’s best restaurants by Malaysia Tatler.

Brought to you by TwoSpicy Entertainment, Dinner In The Sky is currently only available in Malaysia in the South East Asian region. Already a well-known brand of entertainment, this innovative Belgian-based experience has hosted more than 5,000 dinner events in 40 cities around the world. Iconic locations have included the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Marina of Dubai, Villa Borghese in Rome, Athens, Copacabana Beach and Cape Town. Forbes magazine has called it as one of the world’s top ten most unusual restaurants.

Arvin Randahwa, CEO of TwoSpicy Entertainment, the company that owns the Dinner In The Sky Malaysia license exclusively in Malaysia said: “We are aware that most of the major events and experiences that come into our country are targeted towards West Malaysia. However Sabah is just so beautiful and the people here are lovely. We therefore wanted to bring this ‘gift’ to Sabahans and the many tourists that visit it. This is your chance to experience this world class product at your backyard and treat your loved ones, friends or corporate members for an unforgettable experience.”

It is timely that we are able to promote new products for our visitors to experience while they are here in Kota Kinabalu.”
