“Cheats...and full of prostitutes!”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

At the entrance to Rum Jungle, the hostess pointed to liquor bottles kept next to her (JD, Chivas, Absolut) and said that the cover charge included one drink so it was a good deal. Once we were in, we got some nasty swill at the bar. When I confronted the barman, he told us that this was the 'house' whisky and 'house' vodka! We went back to the entrance counter and they reaffirmed the same! The hostess said that the bottles kept outside were only 'indicative' of the type of liquor being sold and not the brand - beat that! They were also quite rude. We also spoke to the manager who did not seem to bother either.
We sat down grudgingly and guess what - the whole place is crawling with prostitutes of all ethnicities, rubbing up to old white men - not a place for family. Only for single horny men who are in KL for just one thing. AVOID! A lot of better places on the same street.

“Great stop in KL”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

We visited Rum Jungle for an early dinner while in KL. At around 1800, it's still a little quiet. There was a live band coming in at 9 and covers charges start at 10 so arriving between 9 and 10 is perfect if you are looking for some night life.

The food was good; my ribeye was a bit overcooked but not by much. The rest of the food was very good.

Tha atmosphere is fantastic; very clean and well laid out. The bathrooms are a bit run down. The shark tank over the bar was a nice effect.

If you are looking for a high class meal-skip it. If you are looking for a good meal with a nice, relaxed atmosphere, this is good for you.
