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.

Sits on a hill close to the towers. This place seems to be a former residence and has a colonial bungalow kind of vibe. Can't go wrong.

We went there during Ramadan and they had a buffet meal. It gave you a great range of Malay foods. The satays were magnificent and all of the dishes were well cooked. There were excellent starters and the mains were very nice. The buffet was good as you could have a taste of something and if you liked it go... More

I love malay food. Well cooked and possibly well presented, in a nice ambiance. Bijan should be a well known institution of Malay kitchen considering how it was crowded. The ambiance is a wide room, typical, full of wooden elements and a green pergola. Full of small wooden tables. Very "typical" and in the same time "trendy". The food is... More

We walked in, no reservation... They shuffled things about for us and we sat down. Took about 3 mins. Ordered a couple of Tiger beers and soft drinks for the boys. Starter was the mixed selection.. Spring roll, some kind of dumpling/pakora (yummy), chicken leg or wings and heavy rice with fishy things on the top. AMAZING. Lamb rendang -... More

It is not very easy to find authentic Malay fod in a good restaurant environment in KL. Bijan is a quality restaurant and the food is prepared in a very authentic way. The restaurant is located in the Bukit Bintang area so the suburb is not so flashy but once you are inside the restaurant, it is quite nice. The... More

Bijan is a traditional Malaysian restaurant. The decor and atmosphere are warm and inviting. When one enters, the Malaysian Tatler, Tripadvisor and many more certificates are hanging on the wall. I guess the popularity has made them complacent. The appetisers fried taro/chicken, spinach leaf tempura, croquettes were tasteless and greasy. The main dishes were ok but the whole felt more...

I looked for a Malay restaurant not too far from our hotel since I was travelling with 3 kids by myself. Due to Ramadan they offered buffet until 9.30 pm only. Slightly touristy, many Chinese taking photos of all the dishes as a primary goal of the evening. Some nice satay, freshly grilled squid, crab, fish, etc. Several fried dishes,... More
