My boyfriend and I visited Chilli Vanilla while staying in KK. We were a bit fed up of Asian cuisine near the end of our trip, so this was perfect for us! The menu has such a variety of food, fairly western, all delicious. And great homemade deserts too! Prices very reasonable, and cannot fault the service. Would definitely recommend!

The food was awesome and their service was excellent! The food presentation is also good. I love it when restaurants plate their food up properly! They aced it! I love their lamb stew and their chilli chocolate beef stew is a must try if you've never tasted savory chocolate. Generous portion (I had no room left for their cakes!..which sucks)... More

What a beautiful little place! And my first sweet potato fries in at least 2 months! Well priced with an interesting changing menu. Elderflower, lime and mint mocktail is a must!!

Wow...this is a little gem of a place. Tucked away from the Waterfront in KK this is one of the nicest places to eat. The food is beautiful...simple and flavoursome. I had Hungarian goulash with sweet potato fries and it was really good. Staff are friendly and helpful but not over bearing. I advise any one visiting KK to add... More

I like the cosy design of this little restaurant serving western cuisine. I've tried their dessert from the signature Brownie served with vanilla ice cream, to the Chocolate Devil, and 1 Meter. These are nicer among all of the cakes selling there.

This restaurant is not on top of the list of trip advisor for KK for nothing; it offers bistro-like atmosphere, delicious food served like back home (the mashed potatoes... yummy) and good service in a cosy place. If you're tired a bit from the Asian spices, definitely pop in for some good burger, chicken kebab, but they also have Hungarian... More

Living in KK I regularly eat here and have yet to be disappointed. The food is more expensive than the alternatives nearby but is worth every Ringgit. The food is well cooked and freshly made in the kitchen from a wide ranging menu. The staff here are also excellent and provide probably the best service in KK. I particularly enjoy... More

Nice food and good prices make this spot perfect for anyone visiting kk and looking to try some tasty food. It's a little small so therefore maybe not suitable for large parties but the menu was interesting and varied, the staff well trained and the food delicious. I will certainly come again as I visit Kk regularly.
