The buttermilk sauce has a tinge of spiciness and a balance buttery taste.  This dish is served with refreshing garden green which is topped with a sesame dressing.


One of the favourite dish served at MANDALA is the Golden Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti (RM28.00). At Mandala, this dish is served with the full-size soft shell crab.
