The dessert which melts in your mouth. Worth the mention. Look for Tony if you plan to visit. Great founder and host of Songket.

Well, I celebrated my birthday party at Songket with my team of people. It was a last minute Malaysian Style as job assignment comes first. My Team selected Songket Restaurant which is hidden away from Main Street of Jalan Yap Kwan Seng but very easy to recognised when one need to tell behind Delhi Royale an Indian Restaurant that be...

It is nothing special with the food if you are the food lover. The taste is very average and sometimes you can get a lot more cheaper and delicious in other place.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our honeymoon. It was our last night in KL, and we wish we had discovered this place earlier. The service is amazing and the food is so delicious! Mohd (the manager) was extremely welcoming & made us feel very comfortable. We went on a Saturday & they do a special dance show... More

Walk around the block of restaurants, and you will find Songket in a garden atmosphere. Normally there is a dance performance (traditional Malayan) but not this night. We picked a Beef Rendang. This should be medium spicy and cooked till dry, and it was. Nice structure, mild spices and lemon grass. Place is designed with taste. Locals picked a BBQ... More

Tucked away behind a shopping strip with filtered views of the twin towers, is this unpretentious restaurant. Ambience and decor is traditional Malay. Attentive and courteous staff. The meal was well presented, good quantities, tasty and not to expensive for a restaurant. The show is "packaged" the music is timed to the performance with little or no breaks. However, the...

I took my parents and friends from Italy and US to Songket just before Christmas time, and I just reserved a table for this week end! The place is very nicely and characteristically decorated, the service is good, polite and attentive. Food is very good and comprises all the traditional Malay dishes, like Nasi lemak, nasi kandar, beef rendang, otak-otak... More

Enjoyed our meal. Food was delicious and we loved the local entertainment. Our kids enjoyed joining in and our son especially enjoyed being chosen to do the blow dart. Staff were helpful in selection of food and even organised taxi back to hotel for us. Great place. Must go when in KL.
