There are better, less pretentious restaurants in KL. The food was good, but not great. The service was nice and there was a cultural show, but it all felt a bit hammed up for the westerners.

If you looking good combo malay food this is the best restaurant, while you having dinner at the same time you can watch malay culture dance, you can even participate with them. Located near twin towers. Very affordable price.

My boyfriend and I went here on our first night in KL. We had the mixed satay to start, which was delicious. The cultural dance was fun and the dancers encourage audience participation. (They will pull anyone up not just those sitting near the front!). All in all a nice start to our holiday.

The restaurant is unique as it showcase dances from various ethnicity during its peak hour (around 8pm) and asked the guests to participate the dance with the dancers. However, the music was too loud and it is hard for guests to talk to each other. Overall, food was really good but for old-timers who know traditional Malay desserts and drinks... More
