The service in this restaurant/bar is the best we have ever encountered in our visit in Malaysia. Food was excellent, and the drink were to. The bartender was very informed on the whisky side. Thanks for a very good night!

We had an excellent meal at the Steak House next door (the same establishment so just one bill) then moved into the Whisky Bar for a drink two. Great atmosphere and great service from a Bangladeshi waiter (Ashmi?) who guided me in my choices from over 500 different ones. Thank-you.

I was travelling KL alone, and came here for scotch. My waiter was Ariff, and man was he great! He knew every whiskey, brought me free samples, gave me many recommendations, gave me a tour of their 500+ different whiskies, and showed me a demonstration of how they make the distinct ice ball. Waiters will give you their FULL attention... More

We went with our local friend tonight. It's quite humid to sit outside this time of year. Recommended to sit in the air con section if you wanna have several whisky like us. The service outside was little less attentive than inside. The high table & chair was quite good. We ordered 2 beers, 2 glass of red wine and... More

my friend visited the whiskey bar- he said that the staff were nice and had a good knowledge of whiskeys and recommended the blended series for him which he enjoyed tasting- definitely a great place for whiskey lovers(not me of course)

Great food, awesome selection of Whiskys. If you like whisky you must go there, you`ll be there for hours reading the lists and testing new whisky`s. They have everything there or at least close to everything, and the drinks are very good also. Best Old fashioned I`ve had! :)

If you are into whisky and cigars, you will find a treat here. Try a classic Cohiba Siglo I cigar and a Water Witch to go with it. Good service!
