We had a loooong dinner here during our stay in KL. Tapas were amazingly good, wine tasty and tha atmosphere was very nice. Service was also friendly and fast. Only tiny minus was that we did book a table earlier that day on the place, but when we arrived on the agreed time, there were no table booked for us.... More

The "patatas bravas" were a local version, they were not like the bravas we eat in spain (and they were not enough cooked). and the spanish omelette can be improved. Nevertheless, the "jamón ibérico" was awesome (expensive) but incredibly good. A quality difficult to find even in Spain

This restaurant served the best tapas I have had. We have went to many tapas restaurants back in the US and while travelling in Latin America and still have not found one that has the innovative dishes and quality of this restaurant. While we were in Kuala Lumpur we went twice! I would highly recommend the pintxos (crostini) with humus,... More

I used to live in KL and visited quite often Pinchos. I really loved it: being European in Asia, you really miss some typical EU taste from time to time. I often went there with friends, after work or before partying at weekends. The tapas solution is perfect for a varied and quick dinner, the wine selection is good and... More

Excellent tapas, Iberico ham and nice wine. The menu is very extensive at reasonable prices. Make sure you book because the place is always full (and the tables rather small).

We walked in without reservations and were lucky to get a table. Rightly so. This is a popular bar with good food and atmosphere.

Just average. Nothing too special. The food was well sized but bland. The chorizo was very salty and the peach sangria very sweet. The ambience is nice for a drink but thats probably it.

Tapas in Malaysia - yes, and these are some of the best I ever had (I have been here repeatedly and I have had plenty Tapas in Spain to compare). Make sure you get the Jamon - other than that pretty much anything on the menu is fantastic. Portions are generous and service is friendly. You have plenty of bars... More
