It’s been years since my 11th birthday, and still, no entrance letter from Hogwarts. For us mere muggles, I suppose the closest we can come to attending the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is through themed cafes and amusement parks.

Lucky for us, the new Platform 9 Fine Dining is a Harry Potter-themed restaurant in Johor Bahru with realistic sets and a magic show that’ll make you feel like you’re in the heart of the magical wizarding world.

Enter the restaurant and you’ll be greeted by the famous Platform 9¾. Don a Hogwarts robe and hat, and try to push the cart of books and luggage through the wall. You’ll even be given a wand to prepare you for your journey into the wizarding world before you’re led into the main dining area.

There, you’ll find even more familiar artefacts from the world of Harry Potter. Take a closer look at the Marauder’s Map, the Golden Snitch, and the Sorting Hat (which actually moves!).

There’s even a broomstick that you can try sitting on, and a Wizard Chess set if you’re up for a game.
