“Good plavce for a beer and a basic meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This must be one of the cheapest places to buy a beer in Kota Kinabulu. You can buy a set, that is two large bottles of Tiger, for about 16RM plus tax and service. The meals are basic, but perfectly OK for the price.

We sat on the first floor balcony, and watched the world go past for a couple of hours. View is just of the streets by the Hyatt, and looking down towards the waterfront, but there is always a lot of activity. All very enjoyable.

“Great restaurant for the Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We tried Upperstar restaurant after a recommendation of a waiter at another restaurant. Opposite the Hyatt its not hard to find. We arrived and found the restaurant quite full with locals so dined upstairs which in hindsight is best anyway.

The kids loved the western menu and we selected an array of food (which in comparison to many other restaurants were very inexpensive). The food was surprisingly good with good service and western music playing (a little too loud for me) but great fun when Gangnam Style starts with people jumping up to do the Horse dance.

Overall a great inexpensive meal. Highly recommended location.

“Good Inexpensive Meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The restaurant serves good food at a good price, we have a steak meal for about USD$10 each. Great to grab a meal when you dont want to eat at the hotel, Pizza's accross the road at the Hyatt cafe were the same and 3 times the price. The service was a little slow, but we were obviously not paying for the service.
