The food was fine, but the 'traditional dance' show that they put on for 30 mins was more amusing than quality entertainment. Frankly it took good local food, and lowered the experience to tourist tack! Stay with decent food, and make any show more traditional, simple...and above all DIGNIFIED!

Some of the best food that I have eaten in Malaysia came from this restaurant - what a... More

There are better, less pretentious restaurants in KL. The food was good, but not great. The service was nice and there was a cultural show, but it all felt a bit hammed up for the westerners.

The cultural program was very impressive with traditional dances where the diners are also invited to participate. The dancers were very skilled and provided a great experience. Dinner was excellent... More

If you looking good combo malay food this is the best restaurant, while you having dinner at the same time you can watch malay culture dance, you can even participate with them. Located near twin towers. Very affordable price.
