Our first impression was a bit negative: we arrived at 6:15pm (open at 6) and the staff were still putting aprons on, etc., and we felt like we were regarded as something of an inconvenience for being the first customer of the evening. The complimentary bread was lovely, nice crispy crust with a pillowy interior. This was, however, negated by the compound butter that was served alongside, which had obviously been stored uncovered in the fridge, and had absorbed the odors of the fridge and tasted like a stale refrigerator. It was nearly inedible.

When it came time to order, we found out that several varieties of steak and several sides were unavailable. How do you run out of green beans before the first customer of the evening gets there? The sides that we did order were unspectacular: a spinach salad with a strong flavor of anchovies (not mentioned in its description), and truffle mashed potatoes that were bit on the dry side.

The steak was spectacular. 455g of Australian Wagyu cooked to perfection. Probably the best piece of beef I have ever had. I grew up in Texas, so that is hard for me to admit!

However, when spending RM900+ for a meal for two, we expect every detail of the meal to be at least very good, if not perfect. Dish fails this test, unfortunately.

I've been a big fan of wagyu ever since being introduced to this restaurant.

I usually opt for the Marble 5 OP Rib at approx 1.5kg. Together with chimiccuri is heavenly.

The prices have recently gone up, especially on the grocery store. I was able to buy and cook at home a 1.5kg wagyu marble 5 at approx RM 250. Now.... it costs approx RM450.

Eating in prices have jumped from RM35 to RM40 per 100g. For a 1.5kg steak, thats a difference of RM75.

All in all, its a must try for celebrations and etc. Get away from all the other steak houses in KL.

THIS IS THE BEST.

Went with a group of 13 people to the Brilliant Champagne Brunch at Dish. The decor was hip and modern. It looked like a high end Italian grocery store. Most of us got the champagne brunch for 288 ringgits. The unlimited champagne added 120 Rm to the price, which is roughly the same as the cost of one bottle of the Veuve Clicquot yellow label that they served. Whether you find that a good deal is up to you, but I wasn't much of a fan.

The food spread seemed extensive at first, but somehow seemed to shrink when it came down to finding things I really liked. The sashimi was good, but the steak was too rare and too fatty. The bread was excellent, but the pastas & pizzas were definitely sub-par AND it took forever to make.

BTW, final tip... As part of this brunch, all food and champagne is included in the 288RM... BUT WATER IS NOT. Our group spent over 250RM more on water alone.
