I was looking for Nasi Ulam but they don't seem to have this in their menu. So the compromise is Nasi Bojari. It is very good! The chicken was crispy on the outside and the meat is so fresh. Nasi Bojari = dish of tri-coloured red-yellow-white rice with assam prawns, beef rendang and deep fried chicken drumstick; served on banana... More

If you don't want to wait, go before noon or after 2 p.m. They are very busy during lunch time. Nasi lemak (coconut milk rice) is their signature dish and must be ordered. The rice has very good smell of coconut, so smooth and soft that no meat is needed to enjoy the joy of eating! But their meats are... More

This was recommended by a tour guide and proved to be a good choice. The place is in the Petronas Towers mall and is normally busy. We queued for a few minutes on our first visit but it is possible to book and avoid this. There is plenty of staff and the service is generally good. Worth trying.

This is a rather high end eatery that serves authentic Malaysian food at a premium. Nonetheless, the Nasi Bojari is a MUST ORDER because I can guarantee you, you can never find anywhere else that serves the same awesome goodness as such! For MYR24.90 per order, the portion is enough to stuff you to the brim. For small eaters, it... More

We ate lunch at this place today. The service is expedient, the food is delicious (we ordered the prawn noodle soup and the dumpling soup--both tasty). If you want to eat dinner here, be prepared for a very long wait. But for lunch it was no problem getting a table, even though it was really busy. If we had enough... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. Was here with friends who live here and been before. We had Satay Chicken to start, then I had Curry Laksa. Absolutely delicious meal, I'd definitely return and recommend to friends!

Probably suitable for tourists since it lacks authenticity. Costs myr38+ for a coffee and nasi bojari. I don't have issues paying, having dined in expensive cities, but the price-quality ratio needs to be justified. Furthermore, service was generally surly and nonchalant. I am proud of authentic Malaysian cuisine, but not the franchised souless type. As a comparative, imagine sphaghetti bolognese... More

been to Madam's kwan countless time already, love their nasi bojuri and banana fritters. I love the surrounding. Be sure to come early if you don't want to wait in a long line during lunch , dinner, and during weekends.

Couple from Finlad visited Madame Kwan on 21th June. We had Curry Laksa and Sang Ha Noodles. Both portions were so big and delicious. Fast service and very clean place. Would go back for sure!
