Inspired by the trade in the 1920s, where diamonds and gemstones were sold in Kampong Gelam, Permata which means jewel in Malay is the first Nusantara Buffet Restaurant at Gedung Kuning. Boasting over 10,000 square feet, Gedung Kuning was built in the late 1850s and its exterior was inspired by Palladian architecture which is a European architectural style that was trendy back in the day. The interior of Gedung Kuning, like the former Istana Kampong Glam next to it, follows the design of a traditional Malay house.
In 1864, the youngest son of the Sultan of Johor, Tengku Mahmud, named his mansion Gedung Kuning which means Yellow Mansion, after its yellow walls. Yellow is a royal colour commonly associated with Malay Sultans.
