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

I'm afraid I have to disagree with the majority of the previous reviews. I thought the quality of what we had for dinner was poor. 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.

Songket Restaurant is a moderately priced place for an entertaining evening. The large dining room has low lighting and candlelight and is quite a basic structure but the food and service are good. The food is authentic Malay but the menu is easy to understand. It was a satisfying but not a fine dining meal. The folk dance show is... More

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.
