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.

Decent food, good atmosphere

We went here while staying in KL. We enjoyed our food: the starter selection, king prawn curry and beef strips. The food wasn't the best we'd had but it was still good. We liked the decor and atmosphere here. Service was good.

Went to dinner with my family expecting to enjoy real gourmet Malaysian cuisine. While the appetizers were tasty, the main courses we ordered arrived barely luke warm spoiling the taste and enjoyment of the dishes-especially the lamb rendang. We left without trying dessert as by that time the mosquitoes were circling our table and biting. I would not recommend this... More

Have been here before and was so happy to come back this time in KL. it's a lovely restaurant which is NOT in a shopping mall. The food is great, beautifully presented, delicious. Great service. Nice surroundings. Loved the lamb and the beef dishes. Awesome spring rolls.

Super delicious food. Very honest staff with great recommendations. Food came altogether and very fast but when it's so delicious who will complain. My best meal in KL. the most delicious and authentic Malaysian food. The restaurant is gorgeous and spacious. We hope to return. Our excellent waitress is juju

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.

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. I like the setting which is relaxed but appropriately formal and in... More

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!
