“Great food & atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

We had surf & turf, with a couple of bottles of decent Malbec wine, we enjoyed our dinner, staff & service very friendly.

This was our 9th night in KK, and the best evening! we will be going back before we fly home.

“Monkey Magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Food was as good as any we've had in KK, reasonably priced and great cocktails. A bit off the main drag but certainly worth the venture away from KK centre.
Service was the best we've experienced in Malaysia. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, one even showed my partner to a local shop to find something.
The owner was extremely hospitable, and arranged to call us a cab back to our hotel after dinner, and was kind enough to buy as a drink as we waited- bonus! Highly reccomended.

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This has got to be easily the best food in kk. We tried other higher rated restaurants and thought this should be number 1. The food is outstanding, even vegetarians are catered for. The cocktails are definitely worth trying as is the fantastic chocolate pudding. The service is excellent. Our very fussy daughter was accommodated with a plate of the most delicious mashed potatoes, nothing was too much trouble. The fact that in our 8 day stay we ate here 3 times is testament to the finest steaks you could ever eat at a price you can't believe.
