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.

We had dinner at Bijan during our recent holiday to KL. The night we went, mid week, it was completely packed - so make sure you have a reservation. There was a good selection of wine and cocktails - but we never got the cocktail we ordered ( but were charged) so please check your bill at the end (... More

Away from the hustle of Bintang and located on Jalan Ceylon this is an oasis of calm and excellence.Wonderful prawns with onion and curry leaf, randang to die for and simple chicken curry were served up perfectly. We sat inside however the court yard was very popular.... More

Good food, specially the plates with the "flower" next to it in the menu, thee are the typical Malaysian recepies. The atmosphere is cosy, outside even better. The soft chicken cooked in curry was stunning. Loved the place

I visited this place twice during my visit in KL, the first time was with a group of 20 people, and the other on my own. On both occasions, it was consistently excellent service and high quality, delicious food. The restaurant is nicely tucked in a quiet neighborhood, a few meters away from Bintang's hustle and bustle. I will definitely... More

Courteous service with good food albeit pricier than similar nearby restaurants. Reservations is mandatory on weekends failing which you may have to have a long wait. The steaks are a must.

Great food and great ambience. Four of us visited early march and have no complaints about food. However, this was the first and last time I was able to use my credit card in KL as it was "stopped" immediately afterwards. On return home, credit card company informed me of two "unusual" attempted card activities for close on £1000 which,... More

I booked Bijan a few weeks ago and must admit I got a bit nervous reading recent negative reviews. However, Bijan did not disappoint, a couple of dishes not as spicy as I would like but the attentive staff quickly supplied fresh cut chilli. The flavours of all dishes were very good, traditional dishes Cucur Bijan, Daging Bungkus Kukus and... More
