Mouth-watering Malay cuisine!

This small restaurant is hidden behind the 2 storey retail complex, adjoining its open-air carpark. Great Kelantanese cooking (Kelatan is a Northern state in the Peninsula), the Beef Rendang is flawless!

Taken there by our tour guide and the food and service did not disappoint and the beer was nice and cold. Only negative was that it was a bit too darkly lit for lunchtime dining.

This is a Malay restaurant offering traditional dancing from about 8:30, although the dancing I think is really aimed at tourists and children. We were very disappointed with the food and service at this restaurant. When we arrived we were shown to our table, the décor was tired, so this was not so impressive for the prices charged. We felt... More

Had a group dinner here. Buffet food, very good. As a veggie, it was a bit limited but there was enough. The highlight was a cultural dance reflecting different aspects of Malaysia. Good audience participation.

Ate here at lunch on a Tuesday and the food options were good, I started with the satay which was a little dry although a decent potion, the peanuts sauce was very tasty and the best part of the starter. For mains I had the beef rendang which was very tender and with a kick which I like, the rice... More

My husband was reticent to go but changed his opinion after we spent an enjoyable evening there. We spent a lovely evening at Songket, thoroughly enjoyed the traditional fare; especially the beef short ribs! The traditional Malaysian dancing provided a pleasant finale to the evening. However, I would recommend that you dine before the show starts, as the music was... More

I have to admit that I wasn't too keen to try it out but it was good and satisfying I went there with my wife in a rainy night, it was almost empty with no customer, so we planned for the worst We ordered 4 dishes, including soup, served with steamed rice ... Damn (sorry my French!) it was excellent... More

A very good place to go if want to try genuine Malaysian cuisine, as well as other Asian flavours. Good quality food and good service. The dancers were a very pleasant addition. A quick taxi ride from KLCC.
