Good Steaks and affordable wines in an interesting atmosphere. Location in the middle of the City. Recommended.

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

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.
