Old and dull

Apparently this used to be the place to eat and be seen in KL. It isn't now. A tired 1970's style steakhouse menu with industrial wines and sleepy service

Great food, good service, and reasonably priced. Well worth a try. Had an excellent steak and hubby thought he'd died and gone to heaven when he tasted the oxtail soup.

They have set price lunch specials which include soup, roll, main course and fruit for dessert. Have tried all three selections and have always enjoyed my meal.

It is very rare that my wife who is a native Malaysian requests to eat western food, and particularly steak, so when she does we like to make an effort and find somewhere good to eat, or so I thought! The Ship in Bukit Bintang has apparently been around for 30+ years, and is a supposedly a constant favourite with... More

Have you ever dined inside a wooden ship? If not then it is time you visited The Ship on Jalan Bukit Bintang. The steak was fresh and cooked as we requested, at prices far cheaper than in Australia. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff knowledgeable and attentive.

Was tired and not really wanting to go out but the lure of steak we decided to go to the ship, was not disappointed, best steak ever, in fact we went back two days later for group birthday, steak was just as good as first visit. Reasonable price for size of portion that you receive. The bell service is fantastic,... More

The restaurant offers some good food. The DJ's plays great music so did the cover band the 2 times we went there. The show with the sexy divas as great fun. The prices on the beer goes up when the shows starts.

I did like the way restaurant looked outside and it was pretty cool inside too, like a boat. I ordered lamb chops, which came with veggies and chips. Chips were so good, like they supposed to be, you just hardly ever get good chips in Asia. And sauce for the lamb was really good too. Lamb itself was very strong... More

The Ship is an established food outlet specializing in steaks/meats/ribs and seafood. Consistent always, reasonably priced and good staff. It has a long history of serving good food for a number of decades in KL. 4 out of 5 for me but don't expect gourmet type meals.
