“Came recommended and did not let us down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stayed at Traders but ate here on our first night. Food was delicious and service was amazing. Would recommend. Don't remember there being music but there could have been. If there wasn't, it didn't spoil our night.

“A truly memorable meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant in 2010 – I know I have taken while to write this, but I have only just joined TripAdvisor, and this is one meal that has truly stayed in my mind after all these years. The service was outstanding, to the point that when my boyfriend asked if they sold cigarettes, one of the waiters went to the supermarket for him and added the price to the bill! The owner also came over and chatted to us (in a non-intrusive way) to tell us about the restaurant as it had recently opened at that time. The food is “modern British” and was very tasty and original. I still remember what I had, which was a quinoa risotto, and was lovely. The chocolate pot desserts were to die for, so I hope they are still on the menu! We sat out on the balcony, and it was a lovely final evening to a fabulous holiday. We both still talk fondly of the restaurant, and will absolutely make it a priority if we are in KL again.

“Great service but food not as good as last visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is the third time we have visited this restaurant and while the food is still of quite a high standard I felt it wasnt as good as on our previous visits to Albion. Ribeye steak lacked colour The rest of the dishes were of good quality and presentation and desserts delicious.
Great guys serving and good value for money.
Still a nice restaurant!

Thank you for your recent review on TA. We strive to maintain our standards at all times, however the imported chilled beef from Australia may not have been hung long enough before export, hence the colour may not be as dark. We have to let the beef hang before cutting to get a better product. Thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we can monitor this with our suppliers.

Thank you for your recent write up on TA. We are glad to know you had a great time with us. We like to consider Albion to be a Bistro rather than "Fine Dining". We do great food and offer attentive but casual service, less formality is the way to go. We hope to see you soon.

“Great place”

We had a quiet dinner on the patio - it was great. Food is fresh and interesting. The service was attentive and friendly. The best meal we had while in KL. We'll go back.
