Buffet dinner at menara

Staying 1 night in K.L. before we head back home and would like to know the cost for the buffet upat Menara Restaurant if someone knows. I understand the food isnt to some people standards, but think with the views that it would make up for it especially as I would like to get there just as it gets dark There are 5 mouths to feed so I would like to know whether it is affordable.

Thanks again,

Hi adam,

yes, the views are good, but remember that the restaurant is revolving, so you won't get the twin towers view all night long; only for about 20mins before it turns the other direction. Think its about RM 160 per adult and RM 90 per child including all 15% goverment tax and service charge. Not including drinks (have to order extra if you want soft drinks or wine).

Another better choice for food would probably be the Traders Upstairs grill. I had dinner with 2 other friends - mains for RM 38, starters at RM 20 and desert at RM 15; we paid about RM 400 for 3 persons (no alcohol) at the end of the night. food was very good esp their lamb shanks and the tables by the corner (back of the bar), offered all night views of the twin towers...

Have fun in KL!

Prices shown as ++ indicates are plus 10% tax and 5% servicde charge.

Prices don't include drinks other than a jug of iced water.

The food is not the best, there are better local restaurants, but the food is a pretty good mix of local and international fare, plus a sweet counter. Most people come to Malaysia to enjoy the great local fare, and whilst we enjoy a meal at the Pavillion Mall or Starhill Gallery far more, the views from the revolving restarant are great, not only of the Petronas Towers but of the whole city, and as the restaurant is constantly revolving we find that most dinners will last at least 3-4 full revolutions so you get to see the sights.

As a 'Foodie' and chef, I feel that Menara is only a couple of steps above Micky D's

The ladies above offer good advice...... in Menara you pay for the view - NOT the food.
