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.

Great find and great food

Kind of wish I had down graded my Enak review from the previous night having eaten at Bijan tonight. I talk from the position of being married to my wife who is Malay Chinese so we are used to eating the cuisine regularly . This was a delight.

My second time here and it is very good. The menu features some special Malay dishes that are presented with flair and with a twist. Wide choice of the familiar and less so with rich flavours and delicate tastes. Good wine list and good ambience, that is suitably informal. It is expensive by KL standards, Enjoy.

It is ungodly bad food. Only foreign tourists. The prices are very expensive for Malaysia. It is served "all together" within 10 minutes after ordering. Bland. Mushy. No taste or flavor. I suspect many dishes are defrosted. Service is dismal. I was shocked, because of good write-ups they get. Please avoid!

This is a great option to try Malaysian food when visiting KL. A twist on the hawker style food, this is more upmarket. Have eaten here many times and mostly good experiences. Favourites the popish and bungkus kukus for starters, include corn crime brûlée,

Good atmosphere not too posh, speedy service and great traditional Malay food. The prices are a bit more expensive than the rest of the restaurants around but it is well worth it. The fermented durian curry is a delicacy that you should try, although I did not like the chocolate durian cake.

Lets put it in price context. Meal for two with 2 beers bottle of oyster bay sb, 3 starters, 2 mains and rice, no desert. Plenty to eat... 490mr 116 euro. The positives. Good service, friendly and not intrusive. Food not bad, but doesn't match the price. To be fair, the meal price is distorted by the price of the... More

I have visited this restauarnt several times, and it has never failed to deliver. This time I was with my wife, and this was her first visit. I have always visited with clients or colleagues before. She cant wait to go again as the food was so good, the service and ambiance excellent.

Bijan was recommended to us by the concierge at the Shangri-la Hotel. We went on a Tuesday night; the restaurant was not crowded. The meal was truly one of the worst we have ever had in decades of many visits to SE Asia. We don't know what went wrong; maybe the chef was away on Tuesday. The satays were almost... More

Came here expecting great things, but left disappointed. Food: expensive and distinctly average. Beef rib dish: fatty. Squid: ok, mostly tentacles. Asparagus: insipid. Mango salad: fishy/soapy, lukewarm. Service: had to ask for menus after waiting 15 minutes at table. 4 staff seemed to be talking to each other at all times without doing any work.
