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.

Reviewed 11 April 2014

Nice food, however the portions are extremely small even for a girl and alot of the hotels offer better. Rather go across the street.

“Excellent restaurant!”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Kudos exceeds expectations. Having eaten at their previous restaurant located in Citymall, my family and I were definitely excited to visit their new restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and far more spacious compared to their previous restaurant. The food they serve is delicious and definitely worth the price you pay for it, I would recommend ordering the Beef tenderloin as my wife and I loved it. Service is also excellent! :D Mrs. Jacqueline the owner of the restaurant was lovely and very helpful when it came to choosing what to order and the other waitresses at the restaurant were very kind and polite.

Best dining experience I've had in KK!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Located on the ground floor of City Mall, it was very easy to find as we stayed in a hotel just 5-10min walk away. Place is a little small but very cosy, we liked the decor. Managers/owners were very friendly. Staff too was very attentive. Ambience was great for us (with kids). Took a little while to get our food but the wait was worthwhile, very nice food. Their home made burger.... omg yummy!!! The salmon dish was just mouthwatering. They have a good selection of NZ wine too. Too bad, I didn't have enough space for some dessert. So I will have to go visit them again next time we come to KK.

I highly recommend you try Kudos Bistro.

Nicely set restaurant, well managed by the owner together with his wife. Staff well trained. Food was great too! Price are reasonable for what it offers.

Very happy. Will return for sure.
