International menu, funky ship like decor, average.

For foreigners in Malaysia who miss home and malaysians who wish a taste of a beefeater type restaurant. Bland and forgettable service, food pretty good.....not to be repeated.

My friend and I went to this restaurant after a recommendation from our hotel. The steaks were great! There was a F1 promotion on whereby they were giving out F1 goodies. When we had finished our meals and paid up, I enquirer about our freebies. The Captain informed me that in order to get this freebie we should have ordered... More

The exterior of this restaurant resembles the hull of a ship. Step inside and you have waiters/waitresses dressed in sailors uniforms and interior all decked up like a ship's interior. Steaks are traditionally what draws diners here. The menu also offers poultry and seafood cooked in a wide selection of styles. Service needs improvement, food average. Maybe they should trim...

We had the brandy flambé sirloin. Perfectly cooked and so was everything else. Crispy veggies and sauce to die for. Definitely drop in. Great service, caring staff and wonderful value. I will visit more than once while I'm here.

The very first day i reached Malaysia, my colleagues took me to this restaurant to taste their specialized steaks. Being a steak lover it sounded heaven, at the sight of the restaurant (half of an actual ship peeking over the doorway) my expectation roared sky high.. Food menu, interior, staff, ambiance..total 4 star but food, just SATISFACTORY.. I ordered chicken... More

The Ship had very nice food and a warm, quite atmosphere. The staff were very attentive, perhaps a little too much as the plates would disappear from the table within seconds of having finished, lending a 'rushed' atmosphere to the evening. Overall a very pleasant evening.

As my father used to bring to The Ship in regularly when I was younger ( for over 40 years)and my husband has heard me talking endlessly about how good the Ship was, we decided to take my parents for a meal at the Bukit Bingtang restaurant on his recent visit to Malaysia. What a disappointment from start to finish.... More
