Description: Bijan opened its doors in September 2003 to offer a unique dining experience to discerning palates. The Bijan experience is modern in presentation yet wholesome in flavour. Traditional Malay cuisine is taken out of hawker stalls and buffet lines, and served against a lush backdrop. Modern in its surroundings with distinctive Asian accents, Bijan is warm, yet chic; intimate yet spacious.At Bijan restaurant, we are innovating ways of enjoying Malay food, introducing accompanying wine to enhance flavours and ways of preparing local delicacies in a fine balance of old and new. Our dishes are a mix of recipes handed down over the generations and innovations of the real thing, to produce forgotten favourites and delicious new flavours and textures.Located a mere stone throw’s away from KLCC and Bukit Bintang, Bijan is the ultimate destination for fine Malay cuisine. It is an oasis where you can unwind with a cool glass of wine while the food remains deliciously and unmistakably Malay. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the terrace while sampling our delicate canapés.Bijan restaurant won Best Malay Restaurant in 2004, just a year after we opened. We can also be found in Malaysia Tatler’s Top 100 Restaurants, The Lonely Planet Guide to Malaysia, The Miele Guide to just name a few.

We came here looking for authentic Malaysian food and according to our hotel concierge this was the place to go to. Boy, where we surprised! Every single bite was delicious in its own way. My personal favorites are the wild fern veggies and the grilled ribs. In the end we paid 520 Ringgit for starters, mains, desserts and drinks with... More

Bijan, why do you have an illegal "car park attendant" who charges RM10 to "take care" of patrons' cars? The roadside parking spots don't belong to you! It's city property and only the city has the right to charge to park there. What a terrible impression you create for tourists. Disappointed. Please be more ethical with public parking.

This restaurant was the worst disappointment on our 3 weeks trip to Malaysia and Thailand. Nothing here stands out and I have no clue what everybody is raving about. The service was terribly inflexible, impersonal and rushed - it left me with the feeling that I am dining in a train station bistro. The food was ranging from OK to... More

This restaurant serves Malaysian cuisine in style. The menu serves all the renowned Malaysian dishes but with their own twists. I really enjoyed the food here, particularly the Chocolate Durian Cake.

Bijan is a real gem. Excellent Malay food in an orient setting of an old wooden townhouse with semi-open patio. The service is good, they serve nice wines around ten by the glass including a nice sparkling from Australia. The combined starter dish provides you with small bites of almost all first dishes. Reservations needed!

This restaurant boasts an impressive setting, very organic, cozy and yet very beautiful. Both the indoor and the outdoor dining areas beamed with so much charm and character. Food was superb and full of flavor, no complaints there. Service was friendly although a bit on the slow side. Great value for money, highly and wholeheartedly recommend.

This was money wisely spent! Great atmosphere with very good Maley food! Fine dining experience with basic dinner pricing! This was our second time in this wonderful restaurant and I´m sure, not our last. Eat their local stuff. That´s the way to go. Cheece cake, however was a bit challenge, but man´s got to do what man´s got to do!

This is the perfect place to bring people who wish try Malaysian food without going to stalls or street restaurants or prefer a western environment. You can't go wrong trying any of the local dishes. It's all very tasty and Malaysian. The difference with outside places is quality of ingredients, presentation, nice atmosphere (no neon lights..) and you can sit... More
