My husband and I did have a lovely cultural experience dining at Songket. The food was distinct and quite delicious and the performances were quite splendid and We did join in the fun and shake a leg as well :) You might want to make a reservation online in advance though and be there around 8-815 as the performances start...

Songket restaurant secretly tucked in between the high-rises of KL. We went there as for a group gathering for Berbuka puasa (Iftar) buffet and ala carte options is not available during that time. They serve Malay traditional food, but the food is just average. Nothing overwhelmingly delicious. It was less spicy than usual Malay food (probably to cater for the... More

Indeed, Songket is definitely geared towards tourists, but it's not always a bad thing. The cuisine felt authentic and the service is stellar. The show is a definite plus, everybody is friendly, some nice photos to make. Of course, all of this comes with European prices: our bill was around 200 RM for two, perhaps because they add service and... More

This place is set up for tourists, but don't let that put you off. The food is traditional Malay, with a pretty wide range. Prices are on the high side for local food, but still cheap by European standards. The service is among the best I've seen in KL - and staff are super sweet. The food was tasty, portions... More

Great Malay food, which has been tailor made (not too spicy) for the tourist market. The selection is a great representation of the of traditional Malay food. The restaurant is not on the main tourist roads, however, it is a must to visit. The traditional dancers perform local dancing, and at the end of the performance, patrons are welcomed to... More

This was our first trip to KL. For the first night in the city we wanted to try some authentic Malaysian cuisine. Songket is hidden away but should not be missed, the restaurant is beautiful and the staff is kind and extremely attentive whilst the food was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the beef ribs and chicken. Ribs have this... More

We ate here on 19th March this year. Restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. Glad it was as we would never have found this place as well hidden from the road. Staff were absolutely fine, the manager/owner was brilliant and very helpful. We ate Malay dishes and were very satisfied with flavours and dishes. Great value, cheap eats!! Also... More
