My partner and I were in KL on Honeymoon and visited here a couple of weeks ago (Sept 16) having been recommended it by the hotel we were staying in (Grand Hyatt). The food was unbelievable and fairly reasonably priced. We had some prawn fritters to start along with the satay and then an aromatic red curry with chicken in... More

It's a great place for people who don't know anything about Malaysian food. Nice environment although I think they could spend some money to upgrade the bathroom considering the food is quite expensive for what it is.

Read nice reviews but have to mention, that for the money you pay the food is not worth. We also tried one of the most expensive dishes as was recommended on internet but realized that the portion itself and the taste is not special, comparing to other places we visited during our stay. We cannot say it is a bad... More

Starters are the best thing in this resturant. Try the shrimp balls The main course is alright. Portions are big and food is fresh. But it's not impressive. It is.just good.

Nice ambiance. Inside aircon or pleasant outside courtyard for dinner, good for couples. Deliberately ordered traditional local staples. Otak Otak, lamb Rendang and prawns with kaffir lime leaves. The first two lacked punch and complexity. Flavours were bland and uninspiring. Prawns ok, but with too much of a very gluggy sauce. Very disappointed. Came seeking a local version of my... More

Just dropped by for a quick dinner as too lazy to search around. Bijan serves local Malay Cuisine with commercialised taste. The normal strong taste and spiciness of local Malay food not really there. However, it suites the taste buds of tourist / expatriates. Recommended dish for trial; Chicken Curry Limau Purut.

Bijan is a great place to discover and enjoy Malaysian foods in a fine dining setting. We've been twice and intend to go many more times. Every dish we've tried has been fantastic except the otak otak (fish pate appetizer) which was just okay. The wines are decent, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff is great!

I took a cooking class at the Bijan and I felt like a chef well a Malaysian chef. The spices are to die for, my taste buds have been destroyed and thankfully the class has given me a way to feed my taste buds this new experience at home. I recommend that everyone who visits Malaysia and love their food... More

This restaurant came with a great wrap from our hotel. The maitre d was grumpy from the beginning. We knew there were going to be some big groups when we made the booking so asked for a table at the back. Though there were many there he was not impressed. The white wine that my husband ordered has gone off,... More

Description
Bijan opened its doors in September 2003 to offer a unique dining experience to discerning palates. The Bijan experience is modern in presentation yet wholesome in flavour. Traditional Malay cuisine is taken out of hawker stalls and buffet lines, and served against a lush backdrop. Modern in its surroundings with distinctive Asian accents, Bijan is warm, yet chic; intimate yet spacious.At Bijan restaurant, we are innovating ways of enjoying Malay food, introducing accompanying wine to enhance flavours and ways of preparing local delicacies in a fine balance of old and new. Our dishes are a mix of recipes handed down over the generations and innovations of the real thing, to produce forgotten favourites and delicious new flavours and textures.Located a mere stone throw’s away from KLCC and Bukit Bintang, Bijan is the ultimate destination for fine Malay cuisine. It is an oasis where you can unwind with a cool glass of wine while the food remains deliciously and unmistakably Malay. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the terrace while sampling our delicate canapés.Bijan restaurant won Best Malay Restaurant in 2004, just a year after we opened. We can also be found in Malaysia Tatler’s Top 100 Restaurants, The Lonely Planet Guide to Malaysia, The Miele Guide to just name a few.
