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.

Had a very good meal. Excellent steak, cooked to explicit instructions. Wine selection a bit limited, but quality of the steak compensates more than adequately. Staff is friendly, attentive, without pretended sophistication. And the live music is so good- pure voice, excellent guitarist add atmospheric icing on the cake. Truly enjoyable place.

Painfully slow service. Don't seem to know how to handle large numbers of guests. Staff require frequent prompting.

Ok restaurant. Very good and friendly service. Limited menu and very limited wine list. Nice atmosphere, but not very romantic. For convenient casual dining if you have no time to look for something more special.

Visited the restaurant for a weekday lunch. I wasn't really wowed. The food is very average and the drinks...well I would not have any more there. The staff is not really attentive, I was refilling my own glass of water! The view is nice, but the atmosphere in the restaurant is cold. Overall it was absolutely not an experience that... More

I was disappointed to find that smoking was permitted so I had one drink and left rather than stink of smoke

Me and my partner stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 5 nights at the start of October and came here for a special one off for our anniversary. We emailed the restaurant (which is located at the Traders Hotel) to let them know we were celebrating and my fiance pre-ordered my dessert so they could write 'Happy Anniversary' in chocolate on...

Best meal we had whilst in KL. Staff. Were friendly and attentive. Food was really good. Reserant was quiet, so atmosphere was lacking. If you are stopping in the Traders definitely should be on your list of places to eat.
