We were recommended this place. It wasn't as easy to find as we thought from the map. It was further out of the city than we expected and past some building work (about 5 minutes past the twin towers on foot).The food was hearty and tasty. Portions were very big and the staff suggested that we either share or they... More

We were suggested by the hotel concierge to come here. It was indeed a very good suggestion. Typical dishes and a traditional dance. The only concern is the price quite high in Kuala Lumpur!

Last night, my wife and I went to songket for dinner. The food was delicious. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with our waiter, Harun. He told us that the only water they have available was Evian bottled water. It was my mistake for not asking the price of this water. 2 bottles of it turned out to cost $9... More

The place is touristy and has entertainment while eating. Not my scene, but if I have to only evaluate the food... I have to say it was great. The rendang was great and the curry too. The food is worth it if you can handle the entertainment.

We live in KL close to the city's highlighlight - Petronas twin towers and Songket is sort of hidden from though walking distance to KLCC. The food is amazing and the ambience calming. I ordered the char grilled chicken with traditional Malay spices. Definitely recommend it to travellers and KLites alike. Cultural performances in the evening.

Its a truly Malaysian malay traditional food and cultural. As soon as I stepped foot into the restaurant, suddenly thought of my hometown. All diamonds used reflect the culture and history of prior art. Similarly, the menu provided it is Malay cuisine. Here, every visitor who comes will be entertained with cultural dance performances Malays and other races in Malaysia.... More

Went here for an authentic experience recommended by hotel concierge. Tired decor, dirty floor, seated outdoors with broken furniture in background and very uncomfortable wooden chairs. Dancing was ok and kids were amused. Service was average as was food. Passable but I feel a Malaysian would be embarrassed if this was an authentic representation of culture and food. Fantasia in...

Like other reviewers have written, this restaurant caters for western tourists who want Malay style food but do not want the food stall experience. The food had Malay styles, but the spice was very mild and not really what I was expecting. Our hotel concierges recommended this place to us, but I wouldn't really recommend it to others as I...
