Description: Steaks grilled to perfection Slick, Sexy and New Age is the only way to describe Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill. At the lounge, whilst sipping your favourite martini, whether stirred or shaken, the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and the illumination from the surroundings makes a stunning masterpiece to behold. The Lounge makes an impressive beverage menu with cocktails being the specialty and is conducive for before and after dinner cocktails and digestives. At the Grill, enjoy a well-designed dinner in a cosy yet stylish atmosphere. The Grill offers arguably the best steaks with different fine cuts. Gobo Upstairs' team of fine chefs maintains that the best way to enjoy a piece of steak is to have it grilled and that is exactly how they will prepare it for their guests and to their preference. Sauces and accompaniments are available as side orders.

I booked the restaurant to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday but really, cant say i am satisfied. Food average, staff not very friendly, not worth paying 500 for.

1. Arrived, and nobody at the door, so i had to call 4-5 times to get staff's attention.
2. Seated, and waitresses were a bit scary. No smile and we had communication issues... Didnt feel comfortable at all.
3. Food served. Starters were good, beef tataki and lobster soup were nice. And one of their their signature dish, cod with risotto was good too. Not really remarkable tho. And the steak .... Well i know better places to eat.
4. I pre-ordered special dessert for my father but apparently my order didnt get through... I had only one cake served with no message i asked on it. And the icecream toppings on chocolate lava cake fell down as soon as its served. And the cake tasted ok but cant really say good.

I asked what happened to other dessert because we got new forks and spoons so naturally i thought they were coming. But untill all the icecream melt, nope. Nothing happened. I had to ask and my surprise was ruined. We had dessert served for free afterwards but i was pretty upset.

The lady in suit(manager perhaps) was nice and friendly but it was really not the kind of place i would visit again.

It doesn't matter that the food was good, music and ambiance was great. When a waitress comes to serve you with a mouthful and is clearly not in the mood to be working or serving you, the whole experience goes to sh@ts.

If you looking for a nice beef restaurant this is a good pick. We had the Gobo Signature dishes and it came just as we wanted them. Desert Menu is also nice. Decent prices on the wine list (compared to Norway). They provide baby chair and kids menu.

We had a very nice evening and the service was impeccable! It is maybe a bit pricey compared to other restaurants in KL, but it's worth every penny!

This time we went for the easy solution - eat where you are staying. Travelling with an 10 month old baby makes you often go for an conviniant option. This was a fantastic choice. Excellent Lamb and great Argentinian red wine to go with it - a bit costy but absolutly worth it.

We had the Christmas eve set dinner here and it comes in 5-course meal. Service is prompt. We were rushing through the meals as we want to go somewhere to spend the night, so the staff is quite attentive and the presentation of the food is very acceptable. The price is a bit on the steep side but in this kind of places, you can't be expecting any less. One thing is that, the staff forgot to asked us how cooked we want the beef to be. Rare, medium, or well done. In the end, the beef is medium well and it is quite nice, but we still prefer the turkey strips.
