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.

Starting from parking your car till paying the bill. Its like having a personalized butler just for you! The show was a bit too loud for me,... More

I was there with my group on Sunday nite, was not informed by my Agent that there was no cultural performance on Sunday. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the food to the fullest. The malay food served were so good and tasty and i will surely want to come back. Highly recommended.

Fine food and wine. Good entertainment. Smaller portions than I would have preferred but very nice. The location was tucked away but worth seeking out. Surprisingly quiet.

One good thing was the sauce for the Ayam Lemak chicken dish, it was delicious. That's where it ended though. The spring rolls tasted as though they came straight from the freezer. My "speciality" chicken... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by locals. Excellent Malaysian fare. We had multiple dishes served family style, all were so good. The service was very attentive and met our every need.
