Kuala Lumpur’s Atmosphere 360 restaurant has the highest view in town. At 276m, the viewing deck of Menara KL (KL Tower) is about 100m higher than the Petronas Twin Towers’ sky bridge: Atmosphere 360 is set one floor above it on the second floor of the Tower Head. It is usually called the revolving restaurant at Menara KL.
Tables are arranged in a single line around the edge of the restaurant right beside the floor-to-ceiling windows: when you first sit down you don’t notice that the restaurant is moving. Then, after a few minutes, you become aware that either the world outside is moving or your table is changing place – one moment you are sitting beside the buffet counter, the next you are beside the grand piano and front entrance.

It takes more than an hour for the restaurant to do a full circle but you will definitely get to see the Petronas Twin Towers close up during your meal. The vibe at Atmosphere 360 is relaxed with lots of people chatting, but it’s never noisy. With curving walls, intimate table arrangements and romantic, sky-high views, it is a popular place for date nights.
The place looks like a spaceship with smooth lines, neon lights and starry fibre optic ceiling lights – the effect is tasteful and trendy. The furniture is simple with modern leather couches that can easily accommodate a group of six and dark wooden tables for couples looking to have a romantic dinner. The buffet spread is set along the walls with three stations – the appetizer area, main course section and dessert bar.
Atmosphere 360 is a great place to unwind above KL city, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to soft classical music, but the good food is another reason a trip here is so worthwhile. The buffet spread changes from week to week but there are always western, local and Chinese favourites. We started out with the Caesar salad: one of the best we have ever tasted, it was creamy and full of flavour. The mains are just as memorable: the tender and juicy stir-fried venison fillet with black pepper sauce has a slight kick to it, while the rendang tok (a thick and sweet Malay curry) is equally impressive.
For dessert there is so much to choose from but we decided to share the chocolate fudge cake. A must-try for chocolate lovers – soft, chewy and topped with sweet frosting and drizzled with chocolate sauce – the perfect end to our meal.
