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.

Loved everything about this restuarant. Atmosphere was intimate and the food and service excellent. Go early as this restuarant fills up fast.

A good restaurant with good service. Steaks were very good indeed however the sides all seem a little fussy... not everything needs to be covered in cream, butter, etc. Sometimes less is more. The major downside to this restaurant is the temperature... bloody freezing! If I ever return I will be dressing as if I am going on an arctic... More

Had dinner there. Service is good. My squid ink pasta is one of the best pasta dishes I've had in Kuala Lumpur. My companion's steak is almost perfection. The KL city night view is a plus. It was a almost perfect dinner except that when we asked for a glass of plain water, the waitress brought to our table a... More

Sides were delicious and very large portions so have ones to share! I also had the chocolate fondant dessert which was lovely but could have done with some icecream! I... More

I look for every excuse to visit this place, the Kobe steak is to die for!!! but not on my last two visits. since their restaurant re-decoration it looks like the food also got one for the worse. but I will give them one more chance soon. I LOVE KOBE STEAKS!!!!

The food here is very good, but not really Malaysian. Its fine if you're jet-lagged and need a quick bite but it really doesn't offer any experience that you wouldn't get in any other hotel. Food quality was very high and service good.
