5 Fine Dining Spots in KL & How to Get There

Fine dining is definitely a rare treat often reserved for special occasions such as birthdays, a romantic dinner, gatherings, proposals, or simply if you want to treat yourself.

While there is an abundance of fine dining restaurants within Kuala Lumpur, choosing the right one to splurge and indulge on is a task itself – it can be time-consuming to scour the internet in search of the best fine dining restaurant in Kuala Lumpur for you.

Thus, we have listed five dining restaurants in Kuala Lumpur that will not only delight your taste buds with exquisite flavours, but are also conveniently accessible from our hotel.

1. Marble8

Known for their dry-aged steaks and extensive selection of wines, Marble8 treats each cut of meat in a custom-made dry aging cellar to amplify the flavour. Nevertheless, this renowned restaurant also serves various items of chicken and vegetarian dishes that are equally tasteful to please all palates. Besides feasting on delectable cuisine, the restaurant offers an elegant indoor dining area, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows that mesmerise diners with views of the Petronas Twin Towers among Kuala Lumpur’s city skyline.

How to Get There?

You can opt to take a taxi or use the e-hailing Grab app from our hotel as it is a mere five-minute ride. However, you can also take a 14-minute walk to the restaurant, which is located nearby the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. Another option is walking to the Ampang Park Light Rail Transit (LRT) (just beside our hotel) and hopping on a train that will take you directly to KLCC, which is one stop away.

Address: Level 56, Menara 3, Persiaran KLCC, 59000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

2. Nadodi

Located opposite Suria KLCC, Nadodi promotes themselves as an “engaging nomadic cuisine” where diners can enjoy traditional flavours of Sri Lanka and southern India in their dishes, complemented with a modern twist. Naming their degustation menus as “journeys”, here you will be taken through their 9-mile and 11-mile journey, where the latter is available as a vegetarian option. While you can choose your own wine pairing, we highly recommend trying their cocktail pairings that they call “liquid degustation” to complete your dining experience.

How to Get There?

Nadodi is only a three-minute drive from our hotel. Hence, you can opt to catch a ride via taxi or using the e-hailing Grab app from our hotel. Nevertheless, you can also opt to travel there on foot as it is only a mere 12-minute walk. For a shorter walk, you can head to the Ampang Park LRT station (just beside our hotel) and take a train to KLCC as the restaurant is only a short walk away.

Address: Lot 183, 1st Floor, Jalan Mayang, Off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

3. Troika Sky Dining

One of Kuala Lumpur’s most famous establishments, Troika Sky Dining comprises of three dining venues and a bar - Cantaloupe, Strato, Fuego and Claret wine bar. Cantaloupe serves fusion-style dishes and vegetarian options from the 24th floor where you can witness stunning views of the city. Meanwhile, Fuego is a restaurant and bar, known for its South American flavours where every dish is presented artistically as the restaurant incorporates contemporary cooking techniques including smoking. Fuego also has a dedicated Guacamole team that reimagines the dish in various styles. For those craving Italian cuisine, Strato, a floor above Cantaloupe, offers Italian bistro dining options that include pizzas and pastas that use high-class ingredients such as porcini and Wagyu. Meanwhile, Claret wine bar, which is located across the room from Cantaloupe and on the outdoor terrace, offers a fine selection of wines, as well as cocktails.

How to Get There?

Located only 12-minutes from the hotel, we recommend avoiding the traffic and walking there. However, you can also opt for a taxi or use the Grab e-hailing app for a drive. Another option is walking to the Ampang Park LRT station (just beside our hotel) and hopping on a train that will take you to KLCC. From KLCC, Troika is a short walk as it is only less than 1km away.

4. Sushi Oribe

Established in 2004, Sushi Oribe is well-known for their fresh sushi and sashimi prepared by their talented Japanese sushi chefs, while classics such as Tempura are also available to please Japanese cuisine enthusiasts. Here, diners are able to choose various courses from their lunch and dinner set menu, while their Special Omakase serves up seasonal plates for those with a more advanced palate - however, you will need to make your reservations a week prior to enjoy this personalised service. For a more exciting dining experience, we recommend making reservations by the counter (there are only eight spots available!) where you can watch the chefs in action as they prepare your sushi.

How to Get There?

Only a six-minute drive from our hotel, you can take a taxi or you can opt to use the Grab e-hailing app. Alternatively, a cheaper option would be to take the LRT from the Ampang Park LRT station to KL Sentral and take the KL Monorail to Raja Chulan station before taking a mere nine-minute walk to Vipod Residences.

5. Dewakan

In April 2019, Dewakan became the first Malaysian restaurant to be listed among Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants with the title of “Best Restaurant in Malaysia”. Aiming to honour the land and local produce, Dewakan is a combination of two Malay words: ‘Dewa’ meaning “God” and “Makan” meaning “food” or “to eat”. You can choose from their 16-course Kayangan menu or their nine-course Nusantara menu, which includes savoury dishes such as goat tartare and prawns warmed in starfruit juice with herbs. Meanwhile, delicious desserts including Temuan Chocolate with Jaggery Ice-cream and popsicles are served for a tantalising end to the meal. The restaurant also offers vegetarian menus for those with special diet restrictions – however, make sure to mention this when you make your reservations.

How to Get There?

As Dewakan is located outside of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, it is a 44-minute drive from the hotel. Hence, you can take a taxi or use the Grab e-hailing app.

Address: Lower Ground Floor, KDU University College, Utropolis Glenmarie, Jalan Kontraktor U1/14, Seksyen U1, 40150 Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia
