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.

Very good Malay dining experience

Our concierge recommended Bijan, which was a pleasant 10 - 15 minute walk from the hotel. While in a busy street full of bars and restaurants, it seemed to be one of the few serving local cuisine.

Ate here on our final night as recommended by our hotel. The food was upscale and similar to other restaurants in the town we ate at. we got seated inside and it was very hot, fans don't do that much in the heat. The food was good, especially the peanut sauce. For the price it was good.

A nice restaurant to visit while in Kuala Lumpur. At the end of the quite ceylon street, near Menara, behind Bukit Bintang. Quite yet very central. Start your evening with a few drinks at the bar, than move on the table for some truly authentic Malaysian food. Everything you can ask for available. Good food, good drinks and good desserts....

Dined recently with a friend having actually never heard of this before. I've lived in Malaysia almost two years now, but will admit to not having fully thrown myself into Malay cuisine. This was a welcome opportunity. I had the Otak Otak for my starter. This wasn't bad, although the bread could have been better. For my main I went... More

I told you this is the place for exotic Malay food: look at these samplings "Banana flower simmered in thick turmeric gravy topped with slices of chargrilled marinated sirloin" "Prawns stir-fried in a creamy fermented durian sauce with kaffir lime leaf & onions" "Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak Wild fern stir-fried with chili, caramelized coconut & shrimp" Even Malaysians will...

Just came back from a meal at Bijan on our last night in KL. Unfortunately I have to say it didn't live up to the hype. My partners satay was extremely dry. Both of our main courses were very small and nothing to write home about. My chicken especially was mostly bones. Deserts were ok. The best plate was probably... More

This is the place to go if yo want to have Malay food in a central location, but also want a nice venue, good service and a restaurant experience rather then a 'mamak' experience (the local cheap food joints). I often take people here visiting to give them a taste of the local food and never fails to please.

Went on T.A. recommendation to get local Malay food which is surprisingly difficult in KL. Little better than the airport, in fact, and vegetables effectively raw. Beer expensive. Although semi-open, rather cold with combination of thunderstorm and a/c.

You would think it easy enough to get Malaysian food in KL, right? Well, its not so easy - plenty of Chinese, Japanese and even steak and ribs…but a good rendang seems impossible to find So the very friendly concierge at the Westin suggested (and booked for us) Bijan. Its a short walk from the hotel (maybe 15mins) and really... More
