5 best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur
Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
Malay goes upmarket
Usually, local fare is always at the budget end of the KL dining scene – but that’s all changed with the entrance of some fine dining Malay establishments. Chief among them is Bijan, which celebrates (and even invents) sophistication in Malaysian food culture. For its palate inspiring efforts, it’s received numerous awards, combining refinement with the punchiness of traditional Malay flavours. Don’t miss the spice-infused lamb shoulder!

place to
The Bird Restaurant
Authentic food and a XL portion of eccentricity
Nyonya cuisine is where Malaysian and Chinese cultures collide. And a tasty collision it is! Our favourite has to be The Bird Restaurant, which serves up mouth-watering delicacies, like spicy, crispy, fish dishes, in an wonderfully fun environment. The owners, all actors and singers, have a tendency to break into song with nostalgic hits, and the décor is as flighty as a bird, with pictures, antiques and traditional birdcages, leaving you with a feeling it’s half Malaysia, half Hollywood!
5 Jalan 3/62D, Medan Putra Business Centre, Bandar Menjalara, Kepong 
Tel: +603 62771453
Japan goes to Malaysia
For over four decades, Kampachi, the award-winning restaurant has been celebrated as KL’s leading Japanese restaurant. Fancy fresh sashimi flown direct from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji market? Want traditional Ginza-trained master chefs ensuring every dish is truly authentic?
Then Kampachi is the place for the place for you! All that’s missing are samurai warriors and geisha girls!
The Troika KLCC, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Johor Premium Outlets and Plaza  

An intimate, comfortable dining experience
Taking its name from the region’s intricately-patterned fabric, Songket combines Malay cuisine with the traditions of its Southeast Asian neighbours. The eponymous fabric adorns the walls, providing an intimate, comfortable dining experience. Expect to be entertained by traditional Malay singing and dancing. And the food? SE Asian fusion at its best, including prawn and pineapple chunks as well as chargrilled marinated short ribs.
No. 29, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, 50450 KL

Hutong Food Court
Food of every description under one roof
Like many of its neighbours, KL delights in serving up inexpensive hawker meals which are packed with flavour as well as value. A visit (or ten) to Huton Food Court for lunch or dinner is an absolute must. You’ll find food of every description under one roof, from beef noodles to duck egg curries to Chinese chop suey. Add to that a feisty atmosphere and a dash of hawker sales patter and you’ve got many a meal to remember!
Lot 10 Hutong Food Court, LG Floor, Lot 10 Shopping Centre, 50 Jalan Sultan Ismail, 50250 KL
