Description: Kudos opened on 24th March 2014 in the main Central Business District of Kota Kinabalu at the iconic Jesselton Hotel and the newly renovated restaurant has an airy, modern yet classic feel to it. Within our newly launched a la carte menu we proudly serve a selection of modern British food which incorporates French, Italian, Mediterranean and other European dishes complimented with ever-changing weekly specials. The wine list is cosmopolitan and has a modest selection of wines by the glass from a light Sauvignon Blanc to a robust Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz to satisfy the most discerning wine enthusiast. Our European Executive Chef and culinary team are committed to using, where possible, local sourced organic produce, premium meats and sustainable seafood. It is the perfect venue for breakfast, a business lunch, a romantic candlelight dinner or a meeting place with family and friends. Reservations are recommended.

“An absolute delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A wonderful little restaurant that has the most attentive and friendly staff - nothing was too much trouble! The husband (chief) and wife are a wonderful team and made our dinner a lot of fun - would definitely go back again and again!
Thanks Mark!

Took my wife and son there and found the food to be nice but from the other reviews expected more but was a little let down.

“Kudos- best meal EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

What a little gem. We headed here after seeing it was no.1 on TA, and deservedly so. It's at the City Mall, just a 10 min taxi from town centre.

The staff were so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

The food was out of this world. The pate and french onion soup for starters were divine and the beef tenderloin with dauphinoise potatoes was quite possibly the most perfect dish I've ever had. The sea bass on the specials board was also excellent. There is no kids menu but they do pizza which our daughter devoured.
For dessert we had fruit crumble with custard and eton mess, which were delicious.

The owner was very friendly and came to chat to us. We'll definitely go back to KK, if only to go to this restaurant.

Love the European cuisine they had in their menu. The pizzas were delectable. I like the ambiance too. Definitely worth for money.
