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.

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

We had breakfast here every day. I tried everything on the menu, its all super delicious. We also had a couple of evening meals including a takeaway the first night we arrived. Have been travelling for 3 months and was glad to have European food that tasted like home. We loved it. We thought the prices were very reasonable. Definitely... More

Nice restaurant in a good location. Service brisk but friendly. Simple Western food cooked well. But then it all stops when it comes to the wine. I cannot understand why this restaurant in KK which is rated so highly for its food serves cheap wine from France in a "BOX" French wine comes with a proud tradition of always being... More
