Five Star Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur's five star restaurants have more than doubled in recent years. Young urbanites and a burgeoning population of expats have helped rehabilitate the scene, demanding trendier, more hip and chic eateries. The result - a very fresh and exciting dining landscape that showcases the culinary expertise of award-wining local and foreign chefs. Each restaurant strives to tantalize discerning palates with delicious and varying tastes and flavors. If money is not an option, you can experience KL's five star restaurants, all of which serve up a good dose of exquisite dishes and impeccable service in stylish surroundings.

Il Lido Italian Dining Restaurant & Lounge Bar tops the list because it is the place to dine at the moment. The dishes that arrive at your table are immaculately presented and taste fantastic. The staff is at your beck and call -every demand is attended to swiftly. A close second is the Frangipani Restaurant & Bar - chosen for its successful modern interpretation of the French cuisine.

Our number-three pick is the grande dame of fine dining - Lafite. This well-established restaurant still manages to create quite a buzz with its classic European dishes.

Do check out Ibunda, one of the few Malay fine dining restaurants in the city. Chef Zabidi Ibrahim tweaks traditional Malay dishes with French technique. Imagine creations such as steamed black cod and lobster with mixed beans, belacan (shrimp paste) and ginger-garlic sauce or pan-fried foie gras served with the local ciku fruit.

Joining the list is KL's newest five-star restaurant, Garibaldi Italian Restaurant and Bar. This compact, comfortable venue offers luxury dining at its best, with superb Italian food, a great wine list and perfect service.
