A restaurant in Malaysia is giving customers a chance to dine without having to leave their cars.
Padi House restaurant, in Cyberjaya, Malaysia, announced last week on social media that it would be offering drive-in service to patrons who miss eating out.
Customers can pre-order their meals, or order them after they arrive at the restaurant’s parking lot, according to another social media post. And unlike a typical takeaway meal, Padi House’s drive-in meals come on a tray with a “proper dining set,” the restaurant said.
