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 had a end year party at Bijan. The inside of the restaurant is absolutely nice and has a warm ambient. The services was friendly, and very effective. The only minus point was the food, it was not bad but I was expecting more from this place as what it was served. As the dinner was a set menu I... More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute booking for our final night in KL. Although we had sampled plenty of local eats we were after a finer experience and Bijan did not disappoint. At the time of booking we were advised that there was a larger group of 80 people at the restaurant for a function with their... More

It has been a nice dinner experience to go to Bijan, one of the best in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, excellent food. We had Gulai Lemak, Sotong, Masak Lemak, Kerabu Nangka and desert, with a fine sauvignon white from South Africa, all was excellent and decent priced, less than 350RM. Better book in advanced it...

Bijan was clearly the best restaurant for Malaysian food we visited on our stay in Kuala Lumpur. The courses were big enough to share and made of the best local produce. The restaurant is divided in two parts, an interior with air conditioning and a verandah with views of the surrounding city. It is made like a house in the... More

We ate here tonight and were very impressed. We were greeted warmly by all the staff and although early for our table booking we were seated immediately and presented with the wine list. A very good selection on offer at prices we consider cheap by U K standards. We chose a Cab Sav from chile which was excellent at just... More

A fantastic place that just cannot be faulted. A must visit in KL. Need i say more other than spend the time to find this great restaurant at the far end of Changkat Bukit Bintang.

we went at Bijan last night, thanks to a friend's tip. Nice to see such a peaceful place so close to downtown. We liked the ambience, food was ok (although no "breathtaking"), and price really affordable. It was a Saturday night, no reservation was needed. Service is really good and careful?

Food was average and quite overpriced for KL-which I would be prepared to pay if it didn't feel like we were eating re-heated food. It is overpriced and the staff found it difficult to recommend us anything to try from the menu. I would save your cash and find somewhere else.

Bijan is a good restaurant and not part of a hotel nor any mall. This fact makes it somehow attractive to tourists who look for very tasty Malaysian food away from street food places but are sick of the malls. you cam sit inside and outside. It is quite pricy but you will find a great variety of Malaysian and... More

Bijan is a wonderful authentic Malay restaurant, which we found it very hard to find in KL where Chinese and international cuisines seem to prevail. Food is delicious - particularly liked the shrimp and pineapple curry - service very nice and friendly, atmosphere cosy and exotic and not least: the cocktails are good! Out of several places we visited in... More
