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.

For a hotel restaurant, this is as good as it gets. Service was first class whilst the food was delicious. Not-stop repetitive Xmas music a bit grating on the ears though.

My wife and I were staying at the Traders Hotel in November 2012. We decided to try the Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill for dinner one night. I had the steak while my wife had the salmon. Both were delicious!

Food is good but service time is too long. And some of our guest complained that their steak is cold.

We booked a late reservation to Gobo and the waiter informed us it may be a wait for meals due to 2 large groups. We ordered 2 mains and some wine. The wait was worth it! Food was incredibly tasty, i had the fish with seafood & angel hair pasta and my husband ordered tenderloin steak. For desert we ordered... More

Average service, no real charm, functional. Nowhere else to eat in the hotel, except the noise disco bar, so rather disappointed

We ate here once as most of the time we ate outside the hotel or in the traders club. Whilst it was very pricey it was worth every penny. This was our honeymoon and we wanted a treat. I would recommend the T-bone steak and chunky chips.

The quality of the food is good, easily up there with some of the high end places like Hawkesmoor or even Goodman in London, BUT that's just it, you pay London prices. We had two steaks and a bottle of wine and the bill was approx £120. For Malaysia this is extortionate! Considering how cheap the rest of our time... More

You just have to love Gobo buffet lunch. Great ambiance and the best part the variety. From Malaysian to International. My personal fave is the Japanese/ Sushi counter. They serve fresh fish - that what make it super delish. And handrolls & good miso soup too. I like the lunch spread better than breakkie. Yum if you want to splurge!... More

This was the first restaurant we went to in KL - being in our hotel it was convenient after a very long journey. We were disappointed that it only had western food on the menu - we were hoping for some local fare. The restaurant was sold to us by the checkin staff as "the best steak in KL". My... More
