Description: Located at the prestigious Bangsar Shopping Centre, WIP is an international lifestyle destination with a coastal resort ambience. It's urban-tropic garden design provides the perfect ambience for an exceptional relaxing experience. Luscious cuisine featuring a hearty selection of Western, Asian and Northern Indian cuisine will more than satisfy the palate. The Clam Bar complements with innovative cocktails, premium champagnes, wines, spirits and features KL's widest range of Mojitos. All these coupled with high service standards translate to all the right ingredients in making WIP a firm favourite.

On my business trip to KL, my friend (who stays in KL) invited me to WIP (previously known as WORK IN PROGRESS, but now known as WHIPPED IN PLACES) for an evening's session of drinks and snacks.
It was a drizzly evening in KL and we were unlucky to be kept waiting at WIP by the steward when they offered the open area table as the drizzle was over.
Seeing many more groups eyeing for the same corner, we immediately agreed and they set us up at that table.
The service is pretty fast, their Guiness beer (from the tap) is quite good.
The calamari rings, sheekh kebabs, chicken sausage with chilly were lip-smacking.
The menu is exhaustive and offers varied cuisine to suit all taste buds!!

The best part was the persian platter (for 2) that we had ordered for main course.
The snap says it all!!!
Chicken (or lamb) on a sizzler stick, boiled vegetables, fried potatoes, humus, pita bread - the works in Persian style just completed our over all amazing experience.

The next time I visit KL, WIP will definitely be a stopover for me!!

Ate here one evening with a couple of friends who live nearby. The food was nice and the ambience good out on the terrace. Would be better if they didn't feel the need to turn the music up too loud to talk. Prices are about standard for upmarket KL.

Overpriced food and drinks and not so great service. One would expect better service based on how much you pay as well as the fact that they are quite a well known establishment. In all of the times I've come here, I've left feeling bored out of my mind as the music is nothing to shout about. Some improvement should be made to make it worth the while if we are going to burn holes in our pockets everytime we are here.

The best part of this place is the terrace. you can have (expensive) drinks and your dinner outside. later in the evening the music is turned up too much and siting inside becomes a pain unless you're bored with your companion(s).
the food is good though and the people are there mainly to be seen and check out others. it clearly a posh place. if you come in yoru myvi, better park it far away.

Pros:
pleasant staff
wide range of cuisine choices
memorable alcoholic concoctions
well priced
Bar staff are fun!

Cons:
seating may be difficult to get in the evening - given its popularity (i suggest booking in advance)
would like to see some new items added to the menu (I noticed that theyre starting to serve breakfast now!)
