便当食堂

CILI PANDA, founded by Kenneth Quah, creatively combines Malaysia's "Cili" chili and Sichuan's iconic "Panda." In 2020, faced with the challenges of recruiting international students due to border closures, Kenneth Quah seized a novel opportunity – transitioning to the bento delivery business. As a result, on October 5, 2020, CILI PANDA was officially established.

Committed to showcasing Sichuan and Hunan culinary traditions, our focus on customer satisfaction remains unwavering. We actively engage in charitable activities and proudly obtained halal certification in July 2023, emphasizing inclusivity. Beyond being a restaurant, we unite people through their shared love for food. We're excited to be part of your culinary journey.
