Best Fine Dining Restaurants in KL

Written by Updated ago

The art of fine dining has always been associated with the rich, elite and powerful crowd in Malaysia but that is slowly changing due to the increase in the number of fine dining restaurants all over Kuala Lumpur. Nowadays, high-end cuisine is slightly more accessible to the masses compared to decades ago where the divide was generally more visible. Food is as universal as music and they speak in the same language, except that we’re using the tongue. We have narrowed down here some of the best fine dining restaurants in Kuala Lumpur worthy of your indulgence.

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    Neo TamarindNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The word beauty does not even come close to describing this place as Neo Tamarind is one of the best picks for a wedding or girl's 21 birthday venue. Starting with a glorious entrance where the timber steps are inclined together with a water feature, followed by a warm and inviting patio, and finally, a series of dining ambiance to suit your needs. Upon seating, you will be given a complimentary starter, which varies accordingly. Do expect the food to be in smaller portions, as do most fine dining. However, not to worry, the flavours that are developed through meticulous processes surely do come through.

    Do you want to experience what it is like being blind? Well do not go poking your eyes now, simply drop by Dining in the Dark, where the restaurant is held in this pitch black room and the waiters are actually blind. Not only will this restaurant allow them to work, it actually showcases the life struggles of a blind person. Dining here can be fairly exciting, especially when you do not know what you are about to get, and had to rely entirely on touch. Feel the cutleries, plates and bowls as you eat, though to be fair, they are fairly simple food. Nothing too difficult like lobsters in a shell or semi-opened mussels.

    Sabayon at EQ

    The view from this place is breathtaking. Make plans to take lots of photos of KL's skyline. Reserve a table ahead of time as the place can get really crowded.The most famous delicacy here is their Sabayon Du Chalet, which is the dessert that can dance! Why is it called a dancing dessert? The reason lies in the way it is presented. Sabayon Du Chalet is an egg-based cold dessert. The staff will take turns stirring the eggs in front of the customers with music. That's why there is a saying of dancing desserts.

    Tips

    Do make appointment before you go.

    NADODI

    Who would have thought molecular cooking could apply to Indian food. Heavy beetroot dissected into particles of wafer, dust, roast and shreds. Classic "rasam" renewed its feat as a sexy consommé. Underrated flattened rice "aval" comes out with a dish on its own. If you are of Malaysia heritage, you will be familiar with the flavours presented in their degustation menu. In short this restaurant walks the fine line of presenting local flavours with a western twist. The ‘western’ element is strong enough that I would give this place a go as it is really interesting to see how Nadodi modernizes Indian cuisine.You will be blown away with the unique flavors and textures, the gorgeous presentation and the creativity of flavor pairings.

    Tips

    Make appointment to avoid disappointment.
