Kuala Lumpur Most Popular Restaurants

Top 10 Trendy Restaurants

The Top 10 Trendy Restaurants list is a guide to Kuala Lumpur’s best, yet reasonably-priced, restaurants. Although Malaysia is a very tourist-friendly destination, its cuisine is still largely geared towards the local crowd, with Chinese coffee shops and mamaks (Indian-Malay restaurants) dominating its culinary landscape. Yet recent years have seen new kinds of restaurants mushrooming all over the city. Instead of a collection of extremes – fine dining outlets and hawkers – KL now plays host to hip yet inexpensive joints with food that is popular with all types. As the city’s food scene is a fluid one, determining the restaurants that make the cut is not an easy choice; the ones selected below are chosen not only for their excellent food but also their decor and atmosphere.

WiP Restaurant Bangsar - Mix cuisine WiP bills itself as the city’s best-kept secret but frankly it is so well known, most consider it a staple on their gourmet dance cards. It boasts a coastal resort ambiance and food served is a delicious mix of local, Western and Northern Indian cuisine, plus on the drinks side some pretty mean cocktails.
Enak KL Restaurants Bintang Walk - Malay cuisine

Relying heavily on age-old family recipes, it is no wonder the food has such a rich, home-made flavour to it. White rice with most of Enak KL’s dishes is simply a must and the spice levels are just right for locals. However, western visitors do not need to worry as the chilli factor can be toned down to appease to more mellow taste buds – just sneak in a word to the chef. Read More...
