Restaurants in Malaysia

As Malaysia continues to grow, the country’s culinary scene is quickly expanding and is now home to many top chefs and luxury restaurants. There are many wonderful restaurants in Malaysia, but the gems are in Malaysia’s cosmopolitan capital, Kuala Lumpur. To make things easier for you, here are our recommendations for the best restaurants in Malaysia.

One of the top upmarket traditional Malaysia restaurants is Bijan in Kuala Lumpur. Sit outside if possible in this atmospheric restaurant and try classic favorites including, rending (a spicy beef dish) or ayampercik (barbecued chicken). For an atmospheric location and Chinese-Malay fusion food, go to the well-established Old China Café in Kuala Lumpur. The cozy ambience is a welcome escape from the busy city. Try the nyona laksa (a spicy noodle soup).

One of the finest Malaysia restaurants is the Third Floor, located in the Kuala Lumpur JW Marriott hotel. The Third Floor serves French cuisine with a blend of Asian and Australian flavors. For a gourmet restaurant outside of Kuala Lumpur, try the Feringgi Grill located in the Shangri-La Hotel Penang. The restaurant offers a view of surrounding lush tropical forests and serves well-prepared continental cuisine using fresh and local ingredients.
