I was there back then in late August this year and I still remember what a nice experience it was. I came for a group celebration, and they perform a beautiful Asian traditional dance for all of us. I heard that they always perform every week (I'm not sure what day is it though). Not to mention that the food... More

Go here for a reasonable Malaysian lunch in buffet style, soft drinks are included. The quality is good and the spices are moderate. Variety of starters, salads, chicken and veggie dishes and a tasteful chocolate desert.

Had Dinner at Songket restaurant with my daughter. Food was excellent and staff very pleasant and helpful in describing dishes on menu. Food we choose was excellent. A great evening with traditional Malaysian Dancers with was very entertaining. All in all a great night. Highly recommend a visit.

The food was pretty decent. Seating was outdoor which can be hot during the lunch period. Enjoyed the satay and the iced dessert. Would love to visit again.

Not exactly Malay food fine-dining, but it raises the bar quite high compared to the other Malay food dining options out there. Ive been here with many times with guests from different backgrounds, nationalities, and they all enjoyed it. A must have is the "rusuk masak kicap"... it's really to die for. over the years, the food is not as... More

This is an attractively laid out restaurant just north of the Petronas Towers area. The food is all Malaysian, with no real concessions to the west, and quite right too. We were there very early as we had to be up at 4 for a flight, so we missed the nightly entertainment which starts at 8.30. Starters of spring rolls... More

Nice evening but without really outstanding local food - staff was very friendly and the dancing performance was interesting as well.

The traditional dancers were excellent, the service was spot on. The food was great. Great for tourists on a short stay in KL. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone especially westerners wanting to try traditional Malaysian food.

We were recommended this place. It wasn't as easy to find as we thought from the map. It was further out of the city than we expected and past some building work (about 5 minutes past the twin towers on foot).The food was hearty and tasty. Portions were very big and the staff suggested that we either share or they... More
