Good generous servings of authentic Malysian food, lovely hosts, excellent and unexpected entertainment in the form of traditional dancers. Very reasomably priced. Located right in the heart of KL, but feels like a tranquil respite from the busy city around it. Couldn't reccomend more highly!

The cultural show starts at around 730pm as I believe. The resto is laid out in such a way the diners can have private spaces for groups. You also have the choice of indoor air condtioned dining or al fresco
