A quaint experience :-)

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

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
