Courtyard by Marriott: Savour the Shell-Out Seafood Feast

Prepare your taste buds and get ready for a culinary journey that’s as fun and experiential as it is tasty, as 5 Wells Restaurant at Courtyard by Marriott Setia Alam proudly presents its much-anticipated gastronomic delight – the Shell-Out Seafood Dinner. Starting on Saturday, August 19th, 2023 onwards, seafood aficionados are in for a treat that’s set to redefine their dining experience. This unique seafood extravaganza is available every Friday through Sunday, from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, offering ample time to savour every succulent bite.

As diners who appreciate a good seafood meal, we recently had the privilege of diving into this seafood paradise. We left completely full and happy, and can assure you, this isn’t just a meal – it’s a good time. Your mouth will drop as the large tray absolutely filled with hot, fresh seafood is placed on your table. You’ll have your gloves, you’ll have your bib, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll have a small pile of napkins. Take a deep breath… and dig in!

Gather your food-loving companions, because this seafood spread is perfect for any party size. For two or three diners, the Shell Out experience is an absolute steal at just RM199 nett – that’s total, mind you, not per diner! But it gets even better for larger groups of up to five, as you can indulge in this culinary adventure for an unbeatable price of RM399 nett. In a world where dining out can sometimes weigh heavy on the wallet, this offer ensures that the joy of savouring delicious, fresh seafood remains accessible to all. Despite the name given to this seafood feast, you won’t have to “shell out” much cash.

So, let’s talk about what’s on the table – a stunning selection of ocean-fresh delicacies that will impress your eyes and your taste buds. Picture this: flower crabs, tiger prawns, mussels, Pacific razor clams, Asian clams, and slipper lobsters, all plated with a medley of mixed vegetables (including corn on the cob) and a nice-sized bucket of steamed rice. It’s a symphony of flavours and textures, curated to cater to even the most discerning palates. What’s more, you’ll get a buffet spread of salads, accompaniments, and desserts, too, all included, as are beverages (water, juice, coffee, tea).

Now, let’s delve into what makes this seafood soirée truly exceptional – the trio of delectable sauces that accompany this feast. These sauces are more than mere condiments; they’re the secret behind customizing your seafood experience. Are you in the mood for a zesty kick? Reach for the Sambal Lemon. Craving the creamy richness of buttermilk? It’s right there to elevate your palate. And finally, there’s Kam Heong, a fragrant and savoury concoction inspired by the rich culinary traditions of Chinese, Malay, and Indian cuisines. These sauces elevate every bite to new heights, turning each morsel into an exquisite flavor revelation.

But it’s not just about the food; it’s about the entire experience. Whether you’re planning a memorable family gathering or aiming to elevate your staycation, the Shell-Out Seafood Dinner is your ticket to an unforgettable evening. To ensure that every moment lives up to your expectations, we strongly recommend making reservations. A quick WhatsApp message to 5 Wells Restaurant at +6012.560 9077 or an email to [email protected] will secure your spot at this weekend seafood extravaganza.

If, like us, you don’t live on the west side of Klang Valley, that’s okay, too – it’s good to sometimes break out of the usual routine and expand your gastronomic adventures beyond the usual places. We thoroughly enjoyed making the drive to Setia Alam and loved the hotel, too.

For a team of writers who place value on good culinary experiences, this is a dining adventure you don’t want to miss. Every bite is an ode to the sea’s treasures, and every sauce is a stroke of gastronomic artistry. So, if you’re as passionate about seafood, make your way to 5 Wells Restaurant and embark on a value-for-money seafood journey that promises to be nothing short of extraordinary. The restaurant doubles up as the property’s breakfast outlet, meaning that it’s rather big and open, so if you want something that’s a little more typical restaurant-feeling, we recommend getting a table next to the windows. Afterwards, feel free to pop over to the lovely Setia City Mall, which is attached to the Courtyard by Marriott hotel by a walkway, and stroll around to take off some of all those delicious calories you just enjoyed!


Enough to leave three diners satisfied, and two diners pretty stuffed!


Every sauce is good, but we particularly enjoyed the buttermilk flavour
