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.

Real authentic Malaysian food that taste like a little piece of heaven. Excellent service! We didn't book a table and I guess we were lucky since another couple just left when we arrived at the restaurant. If you're a bigger group I would recommend that you book a table in advance since it seems to be crowded every night. If... More

The restaurant is very popular with tourists so make sure you make a reservation! Despite the tourists, Bijan serves some excellent and authentic local food and in a very comfortable setting with good ambience, whether you are seated inside or outside. There is plenty of choice for everyone, whether you are a meat eater, non-meat eater or seafood aficionado. I... More

Food is amazing - go for the opor rusuk, pucuk paku and rendang itik. There are discount vouchers you can purchase from the restaurant's website beforehand, which would be great for group dining. This place is full of tourists but I have no complaints. One thing to note: parking is a blatant rip-off; they are even charging RM10 per car... More

The location is a bit difficult to get to/streets are one way, etc. Plan ahead. The restaurant is nice ambiance. Food was good Malay food, and was fun esp dining with Malay friends who chose favorites and things we would not have known to do. It was full of tourists, and not many locals (as another review mentioned).

We went here with a party of 20 business colleagues and had a set meal. The food was superb particularly the satay. The service was great and very efficient considering our number. The restaurant is a bit smokey from the cooking and you will smell like you have been to a BBQ and it can be quite hot as this... More

Another must-try was the Wild Fern Stir Fried with Chilli & Caramelized Coconut (Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak). This dish is special for its rich aroma of kerisik and crunchy texture of the wild fern, which was very delicious, leaving you wanting more.

Great recommendation from our concierge - food was great, really generous portions and tasty. Staff were friendly, esp as we had turned up fairly late but gave some good advice on the menu, especially on avoiding the durian options that friend was tempted to try!! Def.worth a visit.

Found Bijan restaurant while searching for Malay food and we were happy we did. We caught taxi from Shangri-La 8RM!! on the way. When we got there it looked empty but as we walked through we saw the outdoor area where we were seated. It was really good, not hot the fans work a treat. Within 10 minutes of our... More

Nine of us booked a table for 9:00pm and we were seated on time and given plenty of time to make food selections whilst starting on the Tiger beer. On the waiter's recommendation we had a couple of starter platters which were decent but unremarkable, but we added a few satay to the mix and these were very good indeed.... More
