Description: Steaks grilled to perfection Slick, Sexy and New Age is the only way to describe Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill. At the lounge, whilst sipping your favourite martini, whether stirred or shaken, the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and the illumination from the surroundings makes a stunning masterpiece to behold. The Lounge makes an impressive beverage menu with cocktails being the specialty and is conducive for before and after dinner cocktails and digestives. At the Grill, enjoy a well-designed dinner in a cosy yet stylish atmosphere. The Grill offers arguably the best steaks with different fine cuts. Gobo Upstairs' team of fine chefs maintains that the best way to enjoy a piece of steak is to have it grilled and that is exactly how they will prepare it for their guests and to their preference. Sauces and accompaniments are available as side orders.

I chose to celebrate my Mum's birthday dinner here. I really liked the restaurant layout. Spacious but not too big. I ordered the salmon meal and I found it to be really delicious. Well cooked and beautifully presented. My family members were all happy with what they ordered. I have to commend the staff for handling my Mum's cake very... More

Proves you CAN get a great steak in Malaysia. Very pleasant surprise that came with our stay at Traders. Excellent presentation. Mashed potatoes just like Mom's. Definitely plan to return to Gobo & Traders.

Excellent Service, proactive staff and never failed to "SMILE". The only drawback is the place has got no outdoor or designated place for smoking whereby diners can continue to "relax" after having a "romantic" dinner. Generally, its a great place to dine especially when comes to special occassion. Special thanks to the staff named Lycan as he will ensure that... More

Good drinks but limited space. We got there a little late and staff was closing down but that was our fault not theirs.

Great service, meat was really well cooked and serving sizes decent. A little disappointed that the restaurant wasn't on the Petronis towers side of the building (which is why we went there!)..

I had heard this restaurant was delicious through various reviews. I had even planned a trip there on a previous occasion that was thwarted; but when my gf surprised me by taking me there for my birthday, I knew we were going to have a beautiful meal. We began with a crab cake that was light, the exterior delightfully crispy,... More

Before travelling to Malaysia we reserved a table for two at GOBO Upstairs. It was our second visit to the Traders Hotel by Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur. During a previous holiday we've been to the SkyBar with stunning views over the PETRONAS Twin Towers. This time around we decided beforehand we wanted lunch at one of the Traders' restaurants. Studying the... More

We had a buffet dinner here while staying at Traders. Once we were seated and drinks order taken the waiter disappeared without telling us about the buffet and that there were different food stations available. We only realised you could have noodles, pasta, sushi and dessert made to your liking after filling our plates with the buffet food already available... More
