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.

Went for the Wagyu Ribeye and a sort of crab cake for starter. Starter was fine, and the steak cooked as ordered. Everything was ok, but nothing more than that, to my taste the ribeye was cut rather thin. Compared with other good restaurants in KL I found it expensive, hence the average rating. Boring wine selection, so I went with water

Great Resturant and very high standard maintained to match the quality of the hotel and location. It was really good to have a great Resturant in house so you didn't need to go out to dine.

Thank you to the fantastic staff at Gobo Upstairs for making my husband’s birthday special. I mentioned when booking that is was for a birthday so the staff asked if I would like to pre-order dessert so they could write Happy Birthday on it. When we arrived, the table was covered in rose petals. Lovely way to start. We visited mid-May during Gobo’s French Dining Experience. We started with the fois gras duo and it was amazing. For mains we had beef bourguignon, also great with the creamiest mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. The pre-ordered dessert, Cherry Bommm, wasn’t actually on the French menu but the restaurant made it for us anyway since it’s what we ordered. Delicious. The chef even gave us hints on how to make mash. First class evening and we will return next visit to try their steaks. It’s a shame I am so slow with reviews in case the French experience has ended. I highly recommend it!
