Food Court stall is better option for those foreigners who want to start a Small Restaurant in Malaysia and it is mush cheaper than starting a new restaurant. The foreigner who has very low budget but still wishes to start small restaurant, we always recommend him to start from  stall/kiosk in a “Food Court”. Normally all of shopping malls in Malaysia have food courts inside most of malls. It means, you will be having “ready-to-come” customers already there.

We always encourage Foreigners who visit Malaysia to taste many of famous local foods in different food courts almost in everywhere in Malaysia where you can find authentic Malaysian food, Pakistani Food, Indian Food and Thai food.

It is easy to find these foods in Kuala Lumpur at almost all food courts. These stalls serves as “specialty restaurant” where there is always a crowd willing to wait in line to savor a bowl of very tasty Malaysian noodle or rice dish or tasty and spicy Pakistani/Indian food.

Normally rents of a kiosk/food stall depends on the location of shopping mall. It may vary from RM500/per month to onward.

There are some food courts which even have NO monthly rent at all. They charge commission on every sale. Such food court is considered very good for foreigner. Please contact BSBH, Malaysia professionals for further assistance in this regard.
