This is an attractively laid out restaurant just north of the Petronas Towers area. The food is all Malaysian, with no real concessions to the west, and quite right too. We were there very early as we had to be up at 4 for a flight, so we missed the nightly entertainment which starts at 8.30. Starters of spring rolls... More

Nice evening but without really outstanding local food - staff was very friendly and the dancing performance was interesting as well.

The traditional dancers were excellent, the service was spot on. The food was great. Great for tourists on a short stay in KL. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone especially westerners wanting to try traditional Malaysian food.

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.
