Description: Kudos first opened its doors on 24th March 2014 in the main Central Business District of Kota Kinabalu at the iconic Jesselton Hotel where the casual dining restaurant has an airy, modern yet classic feel to it. Within our newly launched a la carte menu we proudly serve a selection of modern British food which incorporates French, Italian, Mediterranean and other European dishes complimented with ever-changing weekly specials. The wine list is cosmopolitan and has a modest selection of wines by the glass from a light Sauvignon Blanc to a robust Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz to satisfy the most discerning wine enthusiast. Our European Executive Chef and culinary team are committed to using, where possible, local sourced organic produce, premium meats and sustainable seafood. It is the perfect venue for a relaxing breakfast, a business lunch, a romantic candlelight dinner or a meeting place with family and friends. Reservations are recommended.

Did British apple crumble and custard better than most restaurants in the UK. Every dish we had was fantastic. There were a few mosquitoes flying round inside which were a bit distracting.

Set up and still run by Mark, an English chef, the quality and presentation of the food is excellent. There is perhaps a slight Italian leaning in the menu (like a lot of places in KK), but there's so much more here. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality of the food and service was first rate. I suspect it is aiming at a Western audience but there were quait a few (local) Malaysians both times we went. The desserts were also declicious (see the restruant website for the menu). You really can't go wrong. By the way, it is located at the Jesselton Hotel even though the website and google maps point to somehwere further up Gaya St.

If you want something else than Asian food, this is the place. Price level is a bit high compered to the price level of the local food, but on the other hand the food is well cooked and you can get an excellent French wine.

The new environment certainly enhances the ambience. It is only a positive move compare to the previous venue. We have a lovely evening. From the starter to the main course, they are all excellent. The service is also very good. It is a perfect place to celebrate that special occasion or even just for gathering.
