“It would have been 5* but for the staff !!!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This place has a wonderful location if you are going for a show at. KPac
The food is first class and tastes like it has just been cooked for you as opposed to most local eating places which tend to offer plastic food !!! Excellent selection of food and reasonably priced given it's of the beat location.
However staff training needs to be improved .I don't mind being told a dish is not available but not 15 minuties after I ordered it !!

“So-so ”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Had a company event where we took delagates from Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Myanmar to exprience authentic Malay food. Id say theyre just above average exception goes to their teh tarik(pulled tea with sweetened milk), it tastes good just like the one in mamak stall. Satay wasnt too bad but you can find malay food that much better out there at more reasonsble price. There were some tradional malaysia dancing too, theyre entertaining and fun!

It's a quiet place tucked between buildings right in the heart of the city.
They were friendly & recommended the best dishes to us, which were fabulous.
The cultural dance were a great treat.
A place to go with friends & family for all occasions.
Will come back!

“Great food, atmosphere, service & wine”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Yes, excellent wine choice, in addition to the food & service. Malay nightly dance & show a plus. All employees were attentive, spoke English and were SO helpful, whether with menu choices, refilling drinks, even going out to call us a taxi. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting KL (as I'm sure the locals know how wonderful this new small spot is!)

“A Great Night In KL!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went here at 7:30 to catch the cultural dance show at 8:30. The food was good, the service was great and the show was a blast! The setting is very nice, outdoors but covered from the elements. The dancers were very good and after a few cocktails we had a blast participating in the dances!!! Highly recommended!!!
