Did British apple crumble and custard better than most restaurants in the UK. Every dish we had was fantastic. There were a few mosquitoes flying round inside which were a bit distracting.

Set up and still run by Mark, an English chef, the quality and presentation of the food is excellent. There is perhaps a slight Italian leaning in the menu (like a lot of places in KK), but there's so much more here. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality of the food and service was first rate. I suspect it... More

If you want something else than Asian food, this is the place. Price level is a bit high compered to the price level of the local food, but on the other hand the food is well cooked and you can get an excellent French wine.

The new environment certainly enhances the ambience. It is only a positive move compare to the previous venue. We have a lovely evening. From the starter to the main course, they are all excellent. The service is also very good. It is a perfect place to celebrate that special occasion or even just for gathering.

I love steak. My girlfriend is a lame vego. This place was awesome for both of us. Service is terrific and the food is divine. If you like steak, or are a man, get the tenderloin. That is all. Ps dessert is awesome.

If you're looking for quality western food in KK, look no further. Kudos serves very good and generous contemporary fares for lunch or diner, as we as excellent breakfast sets. After a rough 48 hours climbing Mount Kinabalu my friends and I stopped here and it was the reward we hoped for. In addition chef Mark added his personal touch... More

This restaurant had moved location and have changed their menu recently. If you are in the mood of having Western fusion food, this will be your choice of restaurant which is conveniently located at Jesselton Hotel, CBD Kota Kinabalu. Favourite choice will be their pizzas and steaks. Their lamb shank is another favourite choice.

Had lunch at Kudos - very tasty western fare. Excellent bruschetta to start and for mains, a delicious prawn risotto and sea bass with fennel and citrus salad. Food and service high quality. Nice modern setting in the traditional Jesselton Hotel, surprisingly the only ones eating! Perhaps slightly more expensive than other options (above food, with bottle of sparkling water... More
