Touristy... but delicious food

The place is touristy and has entertainment while eating. Not my scene, but if I have to only evaluate the food... I have to say it was great. The rendang was great and the curry too. The food is worth it if you can handle the entertainment.

We live in KL close to the city's highlighlight - Petronas twin towers and Songket is sort of hidden from though walking distance to KLCC. The food is amazing and the ambience calming. I ordered the char grilled chicken with traditional Malay spices. Definitely recommend it to travellers and KLites alike. Cultural performances in the evening.

Its a truly Malaysian malay traditional food and cultural. As soon as I stepped foot into the restaurant, suddenly thought of my hometown. All diamonds used reflect the culture and history of prior art. Similarly, the menu provided it is Malay cuisine. Here, every visitor who comes will be entertained with cultural dance performances Malays and other races in Malaysia.... More

Went here for an authentic experience recommended by hotel concierge. Tired decor, dirty floor, seated outdoors with broken furniture in background and very uncomfortable wooden chairs. Dancing was ok and kids were amused. Service was average as was food. Passable but I feel a Malaysian would be embarrassed if this was an authentic representation of culture and food. Fantasia in...

Like other reviewers have written, this restaurant caters for western tourists who want Malay style food but do not want the food stall experience. The food had Malay styles, but the spice was very mild and not really what I was expecting. Our hotel concierges recommended this place to us, but I wouldn't really recommend it to others as I...

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and pWent here with some colleagues while in KL for work. Not very impressed. The food is what I would call the tourist version of Malaysian food, sure it's cooked well but I found it slightly lacking in both taste and spice. Some people might like it but I wouldn't... More

It is hard to find Malaysian food in a nice restaurant. Finding it in food halls and stalls is easy but a restaurant is hard to find to take people to. The staff were attentive and food awesome. Will be definitely be visiting again.

Very bad management. Food is ok.....still acceptable Drink is ok......not many choices Ambience is below expectation. Is behind of some shop lots. Inside the restaurant was really run down. Washroom was really small and you hardly can move around. I'm wondering how those big size people use the washroom. Owner: Please do something about it. Floor is slippery, I injured... More

A bit difficult to find but totally worth it! We would never found this restaurant if it wasnt in the KL guide. The food was really good and not pricey for such a nice place. Good customer service. Thumbs up to the dancing team, they even made the guests participate to their show so it was a fun ambiance. Mango... More
