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.

Nice place if you are staying at the hotel

We had a really nice meal here on 2 different occasions. They had a crab carpaccio, it may have been a seasonal specialty, but it was delicious. Highly recommended.

An amazing restaurant in the Traders Hotel, side by Petronas Tower. All the dinning experience is simple amazing. The restaurant atmosphere is spectacular and romantic, so this place is ideal to special occasions. The staff is very kind and with attention to the detail. The menu choice is good, but the quantity of food per meal, is not enough. And... More

Evening restaurant in Traders Hotel KL. Bland food and poor attention to table waiting by the restaurant staff. Revitalise the menu and hire staff who actually notice the tables if they are being called.

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.
