Lobsters at Ship

Arrived at 7 PM and was immediately attended by waiters. The food arrived promptly. Ordered the lobster in their specialty sauce, and had the Penfold Shiraz Red wine. I really loved the lobster and Red Wine. I tried to change the side dishes but it is limited to baked potato, salad and French... read more

The best steak to eat. Must try their Neptune dish and Bombay steak with chutney. Fresh oyster 1/2 dozen is the best starter before main dish. All dish prepared up to international standard.

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.
