The New Zealand Week which happened early of November 2016 was great and interesting! There were few selections of delicious NZ set lunch and dinners with NZ wines with reasonable price. Great services from Gobo's staff, there is also an in-house Kiwi Chef from New Zealand Unlimited who designed and cooked for the special menu during the NZ Week.

This restaurant in Traders Hotel is more upmarket than the other onsite restaurant (which had more local dishes). I found the setting and ambiance average. Alas, the staff, who were great, kept bringing me complimentary nibbles I couldn't eat (as I eat a restricted diet). I ordered a goat cheese salad, salmon main (which was very good), cherry chocolate dessert... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. I visited on three nights, one was busy and the other two were not. either way the steak was exceptionally and cooked to my order. I found the staff very helpful, but not too intrusive. The atmosphere is understated and relaxing. The drinks selection is excellent and the space provides for a personal business... More

Really this place is an embarrassment to any reputable chef. Not only is the food substandard but the prices are ridiculous. I could see paying those prices at a restaurant that was actually good but this place is bad. The beetroot salad is so sweet that it could be on the desert menu. I mean come on, beetroot paired with... More

Both me and my husband wanted steak. Living in the US our standards of good steak are pretty high. We went to Gobo Upstairs and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, well prepared, presentation good and the staff good

This is the best of the Traders restaurants. It has a nice cosy atmosphere and the quality of the food is very good. Staff are attentive, but unobtrusive. Fair value for money and a nice evening.

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.
