“Kuala Lampur trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

the Islamic Art Museum is an excellent place to visit. The authentic 9th and 10th century Quran manuscripts brought tears to my eyes. Every thing was laid out professionally, with too much history in there. Certinly worth while, but best of all was the restaurant down stairs. Make sure you eat there. The food was VERY TASTY. Presentation is good, very clean, but the taste is extra ordinary...
