Delicious but a bit pricey

The food at the Gobo Lounge is delicious, with a good selection of western food - steak, lobster, pasta, salads, soups. My partner and I both had steaks - the black Angus and Wagyu - the price for these ranging between £24 - £38 without sides. The restaurant was quite quiet but the service was... read more

My partner and I went to Gobo for our 2nd Anniversary, and although the place was generally nice we HAD to laugh at the view. We asked for a window seating, wishes granted, and bam! we were looking at the next building and the small park next to it, which you can see quite clearly if you squint your eyes.... More

Usually I am not a big fan of staying in the hotel to eat, but as my wife did not feel very well this evening and I had to eat alone I gave it a shot. Also the good critics I read here at Tripadvisor helped me to decide for it. And it was a good choice - the steak... More

We had a dinner at Gobo Upstairs Grill with my wife. The food was great, I had the biggest rib eye steak I have ever seen. The overall ambience is not thrilling, but ok, just feels like part of the hotel. The service was quite good however and always friendly.

Was staying at the hotel for our passing thru visit before the holidays. Decided to try the steakhouse for my birthday meal. We were not disappointed! A good selection of steaks cooked to perfection. A good wine selection, with great and attentive service. After trying the red wine and saying to the service that it was too cold for our... More

Heard a lot about the steaks at this grill and since we were staying at the hotel, we booked a table. Service was snooty (from the manager) when we asked for tap water instead of their still or sparkling water. I'm not entirely sure about Malaysia, but restaurants in Singapore DO serve iced water to guests. Incidentally we ordered wine... More

Service could not be faulted. Each course came quickly. Set menu for $440 ringgit per person incl. tasting wine per course. Exceptional quality food immaculately presented on the plate.

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.
