nice atmosphere, good food.

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... read 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.

The food was fine, but the 'traditional dance' show that they put on for 30 mins was more amusing than quality entertainment. Frankly it took good local food, and lowered the experience to tourist tack! Stay with decent food, and make any show more traditional, simple...and above all DIGNIFIED!

As part of a night tour package organised at the hotel, this little gem of a place was part of the gig. A spread of a la carte Malay dishes were offered including an appetiser, five (yes, five) mains and a dessert. Some of the best food that I have eaten in Malaysia came from this restaurant - what a... More

This was our first taste of Malaysian food and wow was it fantastic. The service was great and the food was amazing. So many flavours. There was 4 of us in our party and each one of us had only good things to say about the food. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. We didn't make the dance show due... More
