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 came here with my wife to enjoy a romantic dinner with a nice view to the Petronas twin towers.
We ordered the “3-courses menu” with a glass of wine on the house.
The food was very good in quality as well as in quantity.
The custumer service was really nice and we could enjoy a nice chat with Romario, our waiter.
I just simply recommend it!

We had a fantastic meal here for my birthday.

I had Wagyu ribeye, my wife had Wagyu tenderloin. Both cooked to perfection and with attentive service. Paired with a expensive bottle of Malbec, this was a somewhat expensive meal.

I can’t remember the last time I spent as much on a meal for two, but then I can’t remember the last time i had a meal which was as delicious as this.

Arrived in KL late so decided to try hotel restaurant instead of doing any searches. Food is good, small European menu specialising in steaks. The Black Angus was excellent, so was the Crab Tartare.

Service needs more attention to detail I’m afraid. Our waitress was friendly and obliging. But when you are paying premium money, I do expect to be asked if we wanted drinks whilst we were looking at the menus and bread rolls to be served before the starters. The kitchen door was wide open so we could see in and faced a glow of white florescent lights. We asked for it to be closed so we could enjoy the restaurant scenery and the outside views of the Twin Towers.

If I had booked this restaurant for a special occasion, the above comments would have really spoiled the evening as you would want things to be perfect and seemless.
