Description: Kudos first opened its doors on 24th March 2014 in the main Central Business District of Kota Kinabalu at the iconic Jesselton Hotel where the casual dining restaurant has an airy, modern yet classic feel to it. Within our newly launched a la carte menu we proudly serve a selection of modern British food which incorporates French, Italian, Mediterranean and other European dishes complimented with ever-changing weekly specials. The wine list is cosmopolitan and has a modest selection of wines by the glass from a light Sauvignon Blanc to a robust Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz to satisfy the most discerning wine enthusiast. Our European Executive Chef and culinary team are committed to using, where possible, local sourced organic produce, premium meats and sustainable seafood. It is the perfect venue for a relaxing breakfast, a business lunch, a romantic candlelight dinner or a meeting place with family and friends. Reservations are recommended.

“Found a Great Place to eat in KK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

we are always looking for good Western food in Kota Kinabalu, as my wife and I are allergic to the fish and seafood which seem to abound in KK. A friend took us to Kudos and we enjoyed it immensely - great menu, well cooked & presented, great tastes and all served excellently by friendly staff & proprietors! The {English} co-owner even gave us his Scottish Shortbread to taste, but I had to say that my wife, who was there with me, can make even better Shortbread than him!! We will certainly go back in the future and recommend it to others.

“Wonderful meal - you will not be disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We came across Kudos Bistro after some KL friends told us about this restaurant set up by an English Gentleman (Mark) and his local Sabahan wife (Jackie) and decided to give it a try. Brought my department heads there and we were all pleasantly surprise with the quality of the food. But then again, Mark is an ex-hotelier. Mind you a 5 star hotel in KL and whose restaurant has won several awards. So the food is top notch hotel quality. Jackie took her time to introduce all items on the menu. While the price is not on the low end, you do get your deal with the big portion size. All in all, it was a worthwhile visit and we thoroughly enjoyed.
