“Great Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We ate here once while in Langkawi and it was one of my favorite restaurants on the Island. The food is a bit pricey, but it is definately great value for the price. The service was fantastic as well. I would say if you are on the island for a few days this is Must try

“Fine Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

My husband chose this place based on TA's review but without checking that it was a fine dining experience. It's a excellent place to have a meal, we were the only ones there for lunch but may not be suitable to bring the kids as most of the food was too spicy and had strange flavours that was difficult for kids to accept. Nevertheless my daughter which was 12 was quite willing to try the food, though most was too spicy for her. Peter the owner took the time to chat with us. If you like interesting food done in interesting ways, this place is ideal. The deconstructed beef tenderloin rendang was excellent and the others equally delicious, just not your usual kind of fare.

“Our best dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Certainly one of our more expensive dining experiences here on Langkawi but definitely worth it. We had booked which did not prove necessary this evening, we received a warm and friendly welcome at the door and were seated at our window table over looking the marina. The menu had an excellent array of food and wines to select from, my man chose the Pai Tee entree and then the duck (he was a very happy man on both counts) I chose the Otak Otak fish entree and then the fish curry, again both were delicious. A complimentary amuse bouche was served prior to our entree and later a refreshing granita between entree and main. Keep room for a dessert, we shared a Malacca Cake with coconut ice cream - yum!
The waiting staff were attentive, helpful and informative. A handbag hook was provided for my handbag, very cool :-)
The decor is colourful and simple, bathrooms very clean.
This has been a very good dining experience, without doubt our best yet on Langkawi. It was a 20 minute cab ride from our hotel, well worth the ride.
We would highly recommend Privilege Restauarant & Bar and will most certainly return on a future visit to Langkawi. Well done to the management and team at Privilege!

“Very original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

This my favorite Malaysian restaurant in Lawagwai. It is very original in it's food.

The service is brilliant and really friendly.

I honestly think that they have the best of Malaysian food and is the best place to go if you want to try real Malaysian food.

A part from the appetizers I ordered ( which were easy to fall a part) I ordered a 'risotto with fungi' which was different from what I expected, in a good way. It wasn't the usual Italian risotto it was a Malaysian version with vegetables on top which was very good.

In conclusion this is the best Malaysian restaurant that I have been to, and I think this is the best place if you want to eat traditional Malaysian food.
