Like most hotel restaurants, Gobo Upstairs is quite pricey and I expected a better quality food for such hotel and such price. The staff was without doubt accommodating and friendly. We ordered the grilled scallop and crab tartar as entry which tasted nice. The selection of bread was also nice. However the seafood chowder special was definitely unique in that... More

We initially went here just for a drink but decided to dine as well. We'd gone to Traders to go to the rooftop Sky Bar for the views, however we didn't like at all as it was far too loud and hot, the waiter there suggested we try the bar on the 6th floor. The view from the bar was... More

Stayed at the Traders Hotel over the Hari Raya holidays. Decided to give the restaurant a try. On the first day of our stay, a staff by the name of Stephanie took our reservation for the following day. Was very impressed when we arrived at the appointed time, the same staff recognised us instantly and showed us to our table... More

I was staying at the Traders Hotel and opted to eat here on my first night rather than venture out. My experience was so good that I visited again the following evening. The restaurant is modern and doesn't have a huge amount of tables, and the ones in there are well spaced. Service was friendly and efficient. The steaks I... More

I went to dine in Gobo Upstairs and ordered Seafood Treasure. I waited quite a long time for the food to arrive. When the food came, the Cod Fish was not fresh. It smelled so fishy that I dare not continue to eat as I am not sure whether it was bad and I did not want to get a... More

Steaks grilled to perfection

Slick, Sexy and New Age is the only way to describe Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill. At the lounge, whilst sipping your favourite martini, whether stirred or shaken, the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and the illumination from the surroundings makes a stunning masterpiece to behold. The Lounge makes an impressive beverage menu with cocktails being the specialty and is conducive for before and after dinner cocktails and digestives.

At the Grill, enjoy a well-designed dinner in a cosy yet stylish atmosphere. The Grill offers arguably the best steaks with different fine cuts. Gobo Upstairs' team of fine chefs maintains that the best way to enjoy a piece of steak is to have it grilled and that is exactly how they will prepare it for their guests and to their preference. Sauces and accompaniments are available as side orders.
