If you are tired of the usual Asian food court dishes, try El Centro. It is a fusion-style restaurant in the center of Kota Kinabalu and offers good food, very affordable cocktails and nice music (better than the regular soft pop in most other places). It is a small restaurant and the place is usually crowded. If you have no reservation, you may need to wait a little while. But staff is friendly and the mojito's and other cocktails you can drink at the bar, while waiting for your table, are perfect.
The other fusion-style restaurant which is also in Tripadvisor's Top Ten of Kota Kinabalu, Chilli Vanilla, is only a few doors away. Foodwise both are excellent choices We found El Centro to be slightly cheaper, with a younger audience and more atmosphere.
