This restaurant came highly recommended, but was so disappointing. Steaks were flavorless and full of gristle. Forced to buy an expensive bottle of mineral water. I was expecting much more being that the other restaurant in the hotel was so good.

A very nice place to have dinner and not overpriced for this kind of restaurant in a hotel. The staff helped choose the right wine and suggested side dishes. I will be back.

After numerous stays at KL Traders Hotel, I finally decided to try the steak at Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill, at the strong recommendation of a friend. The venue is divided into two areas: the dining area and the lounge area. Unfortunately, the lounge area is the one with the view of the Petronas Twin Towers. At the dining area,... More

Went for a corporate set lunch... For RM69++ you will get a selection of unlimited salads, cheeses and desserts, as well as a limited mains menu... The salads were great and the desserts were decadent.... The mains were a bit of a let down... The fillet mignion was not bad but the chicken dish was nothing special... Overall a good... More

The steaks we had were excellent, as was the salad. We had a window table which was great, but overlooked a corporate gym! This restaurant didn't have the ambience that could be expected, but was overall very good.

We only had two nights in KL and the first night we were really very tired. We normally make an effort to go out and sample a local restaurant, but we decided to stay in the hotel and eat at Gobo. The food was the best I had all holiday. So-much-so in fact that these couple of self-proclaimed explorers went... More

Had two perfect starters, goat cheese salad and a truffle prawn dish. The surf&turf was delicious but the truffle angus steak was superb, so tender and very tasty. We had two glass of red wine and both were great (merlot). The staff was very friendly and had great recommendations and super attentive. Could be more Romantic but good atmosphere and... More

Hubby and I went here twice while staying at Traders... After the first night we couldn't help ourselves as the meal was sensational... Staff were delightful and next time in KL we'll be back!

Had valentine's day dinner at Gobo lounge. The environment was chic and modern and the valentine's day dinner was filling. We had many courses and drinks. Overall it was a nice dinner. Although there is not much of a view at the eating area of the lounge. We paid around 250rm per person. But the normal menu should be cheaper
