Went our first night in KL, hotel recommended. Short ride from the Shangri-La and a wonderful setup. The patio was charming and had a great atmosphere. The food and menu looked good, reasonably priced too compared to US but worth it as it was quality. Food came quick and was hot and very tasty. They also have some live entertainment... More

We went on a Sunday night when there was no dancing, and to be honest we weren't disappointed. The food is really good, with large portions, thought it is slightly on the more expensive side compared to other options in the area (we spent around RM300 for a 6 satay skewer entrée, beef rendang main, chicken sweet and sour main,...

Tried many Malay restaurants around KL. I can say that songket is one of the best Malay cuisine restaurant around in KL. With cultural show starting at 830pm every night. The amazing food. 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!

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
