excellent steak...

We had a super steak here that was cooked to perfection and not overpriced. Although spoiled for choice of cuisines in KL if you are looking for something more traditional, this is the place. Gravy was unconventional but good. Would go again.

The Ship is a long established restaurant that used to have a cabaret. Seems that doesn't happen often or at all these days and food is so so. Used to be good but has slipped some

Came here with my gem friends and fiance last Christmas, to the Damansara branch. The good is great, the ambiance is lovely and the servers charming. One thing about The Ship, you can see the consistency of the ambiance, food and service in any outlet you go to.

I went there and it was very quiet. Just 2 other tables taken in a big restaurant. I thought maybe because it's a Sunday evening, but I see why it was quiet now. Food is quite expensive and you don't get what you pay for. The steak was quite good, but the vegetables were bland and tasteless. Even the fries... More

I arrived around 22:00 on a Sunday evening. The sign outside advertised "open until 3 am". Although in very much smaller print it said 12 pm on Sundays. At 11 pm a waiter asked if we wanted anything else. I replied, "just give me a minute, I may have another drink" and he responded instantly with "be quick we close... More

Portions are very small. Quality can be improved to match their previous glory days. No creativity in menu.

This restaurant is named The Ship for a reason: interior i dark wood all over and staff is dressed like naval personel. This could turn some away but the food is good, ample and well served and waiting time is minimal. Prices are above average - but the special ambience is part of what you pay for.

it is located along jalan bukit bintang. this cafe has been here for many years and they have maintained the same standards. Nothing much has changed. If you like to have some good steak at reasonable prices than this should be the place. Deco is just simple and nothing much. Service is just average.

Have used the Ship before when visiting KL. A unique atmosphere with staff dressed as sailors. Prices are a little higher than some places in KL, but still reasonable. Our food was very good (recommend the sizzling chicken) and they have a wide choice of drinks including cocktails. Service was fine, but staff couild perhaps be a little more friendly.... More
