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.

Very good malay food

The ambience at Bijan is terrific. Couple that with attentive waiting staff and excellent food quality, you have a winning combination. They do have an excellent wine selection so it is just about perfect. Keep it up.

Three trips and three different experiences. The food here is regarded as the best Malaysian food in KL, but I suspect that's yesterday's news. Recently it's been a bit hit or miss - inconsistent. I'd go for the satay as it's the most consistent, avoid any prawns as they're too much like hard work for the return. What really lets... More

You will never go wrong with any dish in this restaurant, all the dishes are cooked to perfection. There is the right amount of " lemak" ( richness ) in the food, with the right amount of spiciness and spices. The only grouse I have is the price - very pricey but the ingredients are really good and fresh. The... More

We were visiting KL for 3 nights and on recommendation of our hotel (as we wanted to eat out) we went here. Do book we didn't and the staff were very good in sorting it and creating a table for us but it was clear the restaurant was officially full and it looked like mainly with locals.

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the bar staff in our hotel and it was great. Delicious food, attentive but not overwhelming service and a lovely outdoor setting. Would definitely return. Recommend the prawn rendang which was delicious.

Went here for our first dinner of our honeymoon. Was not disappointed, would say not to order too much as portions were huge. About 40gbp for 3 drinks, 2 starters, 2 mains, and 1 side. Good staff.

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. A very pleasantly fitted out restaurant with a "traditional" sort of ambience and good service, the food also merited the various awards displayed... More
