This is another place which I've heard so much about, and also seen through various Instagram shots from influencers featuring the stylish and colourful interior of this restaurant perched on the penthouse level of WOLO Hotel in Bukit Bintang area. For one I seldom go downtown so it takes a longer time for me to discover all the places here.

But opportunity came knocking when my customer asked me to bring him there for dinner one day. Reservation was made earlier - the hotel was undergoing renovation at the time of my visit. The security guard will assist you to the lift and up to the restaurant. There are 2 levels in this penthouse where the main dining hall featured high ceiling to give me those "atas" feeling.

The teams were attentive, fast and friendly to attend to every need of mine. I took a quick browse at the menu, placed my order and then proceed to take pictures of this place. There are many private rooms for parties and more intimate dining experience. The bar on the main dining area features a giant portrait of a Chinese woman holding her food and accompanied by a pink flamingo. After photoporns, the dishes were served
◾Our starter was Salmon ceviche with ginger garlic infused soy dressing and yuzu pearls - beautifully oresented and it tasted Oriental but according to the missus, it was nothing to shout about as if tasted ordinary. I agreed
◾ Nori taco with sushi rice, salmon belly & salmon roe, tobikko mayo - using crispy seaweed as their "taco base", everything blended well together just like a well-made sushi but with a twist. RM28 for one portion was considerably high but the taste made up for it.
◾our main came in the form of Stewed lamb ribs with shitake pickles, edamame beans, arborio rice and master stock (RM110) - it was fascinating to see the stewed lamb ribs served before us with the server blow torched the sauce pan to heat it up & lastly set the sauce on fire and poured it onto the ribs. This dish was a delight and certainly made up for the rather dull starter. We finished it in record time
◾we ordered their Mr Chew Special Fried Rice as side dish - you'd get 5 types of rice with corn, and other vegetables. It was a showcase of the fried rice skills of the chef - packed with the ever important wok hei, with the crispy fish floss to further enhanced the flavour.
◾We had their house wine priced from RM42-50 per glass to go with the food. Good choice as it definitely set up our mood for the night
◾Still feeling a bit hungry, we went for their fried spicy prawn, coconut cream & Kaffir lime fritters (RM55) - tasted like Thai inspired dish but in a good way.

We didn't have space anymore to hit their famed dessert bar but we did order a specially crafted cocktail from their bar to be served at our table. We had a wonderful experience so far here and we were made to feel at home with the friendly service. The food was definitely creative and delicious to say the least, and to those who love social media will find this place godsent.

Organised a dinner for a big group and the hostess was so patient with my many queries over email and was always so accommodating. Was a bit apprehensive about whether the food would be worth it, due to the mixed reviews I've been reading. But we had a set menu (as is required for groups larger than 9 pax) for RM180++ and everything on that menu was absolutely delicious! There was nothing that fell short. We were left sufficiently full! We had nice views as well as we had a private room to ourselves, which has a nice lounge area to enjoy cocktails before dinner. The service was fantastic too! Definitely a place worth going to if you're celebrating something.

This is the typical upscale fusion restaurants and bar, popping up all over KL.
It is located on the top floor of the WOLO hotel, at Bukit Bintang.
We were a party of 15 out on a company’s night out.
We had some drinks to start, including cocktails, beer, wine and sake. We then went to our table.
The menu offered an interesting choice of dishes from different cuisines: Japanese, Spanish, Chilean, Italian. I am normally not a big fan of fusion food, but must confess that food was reality good!
Service was corteous, but inattentive at times.

Mr. Chew’s Chino Latino Bar is a hidden “Foodies” paradise. As the name implies, the food here is East meets West, kind of Latino food truck collides with Asian Hawker stall. Served mostly as shared dishes in a “Tapas small dish style”, one gets to sample exotic “pickels” to excellent “main” coarses. The wait staff know the menu very well, which is great in trying to navigate flavor profiles that exquisite. Great place to take a loved one or a herd of people, the views, service, good and drink are perfecto!

We were very disappointed with the food.
The space is very nice with good views and some nice staff, but the food is pretty average for the price.
Everything was a bit mushy with no texture to the dishes.
I also do not like the fact they add TIP on the PDQ machine when it states that service is included in the bill. And it was pretty obvious the person taking payment didn’t like the fact that we didn’t add extra. No goodbye!!
Would not return.
