    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Steak Hut (operating hours 6.00 pm - 11.00 pm) is part of the Suzi's Corner establishment. See separate entry for Suzi's Corner.

    Favorite Dish: Serving the best black pepper/t-bone/tenderloin steaks etc. in Kuala Lumpur. Great meat, juicy cuts, wonderful mushroom or black pepper sauce available on top or on the side - served with a portion of chips and veg. All for RM25.00!

    Tamarind Springs: Fine Dining in a secret hideaway - very romantic!

    by mizzzthanggg Written Nov 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I recommend Tamarind Springs as a restaurant for discerning travellers out there on their honeymoon, or even groups who want to eat Indochinese (Vietnam, Laos/Cambodian) food in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. There's also a bar if you just want to go for drinks. They do pickups from all major hotels in the city. It's in a wonderful hidden part of residential KL, surrounded by forest and a nearby golf course so it's very lush and green. If you go at night the pathway you see in the picture is lit by tealights all the way down the sides, but you don't see all this from the access road outside as the entrance is just a little doorway, the first glance as you enter and turn towards the path is magical! Tamarind Hill, a sister restaurant, is also very nice (you can find it on the website also) and a good alternative if you plan to dine on Monday when this one is closed. Prices are more than average for KL as it's targeted for upmarket clientele but comparable to other restaurants in its class. Bear with the waiters who may be a bit slow if they're busy, but the whole experience is worth it! Awarded 'Best Restaurant' 2003 (Tatler).

    Favorite Dish: Sample menus are available on the website. The waiter's recommendations were all good. Can't remember most of the names but I think the Deep Fried Perch with Tamarind Springs Own Spicy Sauce was what we had for the main course. Nyummy!

    Ming Tien, Kelana Jaya: Asam Laksa

    by Kaynisa Written May 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another 'must-eat' in Kuala Lumpur is the Asam Laksa (no English translation available). Asam denotes something that is sweet, spicy and sour at the same time, thus sending your taste buds to heaven first and then hell later when the chilies strike. Laksa simply means that the dish is noodle-based with a soup background, often spicy. The noodles in Asam Laksa are slender white cylindrical noodles and the soup is basically a deep red broth filled with sardines, pineapples for the added itchy twang, and onions for the anti-social breath. Another must try is the Curry Laksa, brother of the Asam Laksa. The Curry Laksa is self explanatory. Very spicy and the soup is creamy due to the coconut milk (hence loose-poo caution applies for the weaker ones). Filled with Taupok (dried bean curd) which functions as a sponge in the dish. Being porous, the Taupok soaks up the hot soup and like an M&M chocolate, does its magic when you chew on it. Both Asam and Curry Laksa are available at most coffee shops in KL.

    Miss Yip's Big Pau: Miss Yip's Big Pau

    by l_joo Written Apr 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of Taman Connaught's street vendor has a very special food with very special name called Miss Yip's Big Pau. Pau or Pow is one of our daily foods in Malaysia especially in Kuala Lumpur. It is actually Chinese Meat Bun but almost quadruple in size which is very big. Good for lunch especially delicious to eat with Chinese hot tea. Who is Miss Yip then? She is one of the famous Hong Kong movie stars in the early 90s whom as the proud owner of her large breasts. Over here, our Malaysian fans named the big bun using her name as free advertisement. Somehow the big bun became our Malaysian creation and quite success as well. If you are tourists, this is something special for you. The location is Taman Connaught and the stall is very obviously by the roadside.

    Kanna Curry House: Genuine Banana Leaf Curry - Yum

    by Lalee Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you walk up to this restaurant you see people eating outside at the tables and the downstairs eating area is normally full. Right at the entrance there is an open chiller showcasing all the meat and seafood marinating in the curry. You pick what you want and leave it to the chef to cook for you while you settle down at a table. I prefer to eat upstairs as it is wonderfully cool from the airconditioning.

    While waiting for your food to cook order the fresh coconut juice or one of the tropical fruit drinks on sale.

    The waiter will start setting the scene with a big banana leaf placed in front of you with cutlery. He then scoops on rice and other accessories onto your banana leaf. Then you get a choice of dhal, chicken or fish curry. In our case we choose all three to try and they also gave us poppadums and Tairu yogurt as a side dish. Try the dry fried chilli with your rice as well and we also got given a small soup which was really nice.

    One thing about this restaurant is the service. Seriously, you lose count with the number of times they come and check on you to make sure you have enough food.

    Total bill came to RM80 including drinks. Dishes range from about RM5 to RM10 so you can see how we over ordered. Oh well at least we got to try everything.

    When you've finished eating fold your leaf in half as a sign that you're done.

    I have been to this restaurant twice now and look forward to going back.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered fish, prawns, squid, chicken etc. Basically we ordered way too much for four people and it was a real effort to leave a minimal amount of leftovers. What a waste of food I thought but all of us were full to the max.

    It was all cooked perfectly. The squid wasn't swimming in oil as it was deep fried just right and the chicken was moist and tender. The prawns were nice and crunchy and the fish was crunchy on the outside and all soft and moist on the inside.

    Our drinks order consisted of coconut juice out of a coconut, guava shake and I can't remember the other drinks we had.

    Restaurant Lafite - Shangri La Hotel: Exquisite, delicious, romantic & Champagne

    by sahlenare Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My prince brought be there for a reason as he said 'I love you and you deserve it'.

    When we entered the restaurant my first thought was discreet luxury. It's elegant, it's classy and the chairs are AMAZINGLY comfortable, you will just sink into them and never want to stand up again..
    The toilets - OMG, I can hardly find the word for them, is it classy or Stylish or luxury? You name it!

    Favorite Dish: We started with a glass of lovely well chilled champagne served by one of our waiters (we had 4!) and then we continued with choosing the wine...
    What did we have for dinner? Peter started with smoked salmon with beluga caviar and I had scallops. For main course we had their fillet of beef, with their home made sauce and potato. Absolutely DELICIOUS!! When it was time for dessert, I couldn’t resist, I had the flambé vanilla soufflé with strawberries on the side and do I even need to tell you exactly HOW delicious it was?

    Favorite Dish: Tong-Poh-Row is one of my favourite dish in Esquire Kitchen. The dish is made of pork which is certainly, not an Islamic food. The way of eating is to use our fingers to pick up the white bun and then make a hole in it while pick up some Tong-Poh-Row to insert into the bun and then use the spoon to pour in some of the dark sweety soup from the bow and bite.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite is Xiao Long Bau. XLB is as small as a ping pong ball where it was wrapped up by a semi transparent skin look-alike pastry. Inside was mixed pork with other condiments which I'm not sure but definitely more than just delicious. The way of eating is to put some black vinegar and sliced gingers and then open your mouth, eat.
