Made a reservation based on feedback from TripAdvisor. Extremely disappointed. The ambiance was extremely simple and the restaurant was dead with only one other table. We looked forward to our first Malay meal and again we're totally disappointed in the quality of the food. Prawn appetiser was mostly potato & one tiny prawn in the center. The spring rolls had...

This authentic Malaysian cuisine restaurant catches your eye the moment you see it. I had the Nasi Goreng Kampung with Satay, savoury yet not too spicy with delicious satay sauce! We were lucky enough to witness one of their live interactive performances of a traditional tribal dance, superb! Would we come back again? Absolutely yes!

I have visited Songket recently with my friends. We had an amazing dinner experience over there. First of all their staff were really kind, especially Tauqeer who was taking care of us the whole time. Tauqeer has excellent menu knowledge so he was able to tell us more about the meals we were interested in. He has also recommended some... More

We enjoyed our recent visit to Songket restaurant for my friend's birthday. Harun, our waiter was very helpful with choosing the dishes. Food was traditional with a mix of dishes to suit most tastes. Apparently they have traditional music and entertainment on some nights. Overall a very pleasant experience!

I wanted to have a traditional Malaysian meal while in Kuala Lumpur, and this restaurant delivered. I had the beef rendang, which was very good. However, the highlight of the restaurant is the show they put on at dinner time. Malaysian dancers perform for the diners. It was a very fun experience, and they also let the diners partake in...

I was there back then in late August this year and I still remember what a nice experience it was. I came for a group celebration, and they perform a beautiful Asian traditional dance for all of us. I heard that they always perform every week (I'm not sure what day is it though). Not to mention that the food... More

Go here for a reasonable Malaysian lunch in buffet style, soft drinks are included. The quality is good and the spices are moderate. Variety of starters, salads, chicken and veggie dishes and a tasteful chocolate desert.
