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.

Delicious!

We had a lovely evening at Bijan. The food was delicious and the service good. Disappointingly they didn't have any beef dishes on the menu the night we visited but the dishes we ordered were very tasty.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere. Now onto the bad: The service is really poor. We sat down and nobody came by again for 20 minutes. It was not busy at all. There were plenty of workers but none seemed interested in serving us. It didn't get much better. No drink refills. No check. I had to almost walked out... More

We took a big group, 11 of us, staff and customers. We let the staff order for us! and they did an amazing job, we had a great dinner. Only gripe is we were so hot, in the corner of the room, there was no fan above us. Sweating all night long.

Actually the premises are very attractive. The staff is helpful although English is spotty. I had a meal there one night and came back the next as I still had half a bottle of wine I wanted to finish. My second night I ordered the "duck breast and leg with our special rengdang sauce". My waitress had the wine ready.... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner our first night in Malaysia and it was truly wonderful! We are always up for trying new things and are quite adventurous with food but there seemed like there was enough variation and options for more sensitive tastebuds as well. We ordered a big mezze of dishes (which confused our waiter at first) but... More

Food was nice. Service was good. Ambience was perfect. It is also nice to be able to combine authentic Malay cuisine with wine, which is not so common because Malay cuisine is usually halal. The price is on the high side though. Avoid the sago gula melaka- can get better versions quite easily. The durian cheesecake is great. So was... More

I just stayed in KL for 5 nights and went to Bijan twice for dinner. I'd actually been a number of years ago, and it was great then too. Having driven all around KL to go to local favorites, I can definitely say that Bijan does have authentic Malaysian cuisine that's a bit more upmarket. The food is delicious and... More
