Fusion gone bad

We had high expectations of this place due to reviews and the buzz about the restaurant as the one place that takes Malaysian food to the next level. Unfortunately, it wasn't worth the time or money.

Didn't really read review before coming as I am hungry. 1 place of Nasi Padang was MYR 20... Take a look at the picture of what's inside. They will not go too far with this pricing strategy...

We went to Ibunda after reading the reviews on this site, and were excited to try some exciting new foods and flavors on our last day in Kuala Lumpur. The service was incredibly friendly and sweet, the food however, was pretty terrible. We both chose a set menu that offered an array of items, from an amuse bouche that tasted... More

We both had the set menu, my wife had the traditional Malaysian menu while I enjoyed the new Malaysia cuisine. Both of us thought the food was outstanding. We were looking for delicious Malayisan food in a fine dining atmosphere, and Ibunda... More

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur early evening and were keen to find a good restaurant to eat in. Having called a few restaurants we discovered that our first choices were fully booked that night. However one restaurant recommended Ibunda. Ibunda is a very elegant restaurant set in a traditional Malay house with incredible discreet service. Very much how I would... More
