Excellent service beautiful good. Perfectly cooked with traditional flaboyrs. The good tasty food to the well priced beverages. The rendang was so tasty and everything we tried was delicious. They accommodated a toddler and were so pleasant and kind. The restaurant manager was very knowledgeable and helped us to get our cab back to the hotel. So friendly

Took a colleague who was visiting from overseas and she really enjoyed the food as well. Restaurant accommodated our request to have the food less spicy to suit her tastebuds. The beef rendang was really yummy, and if i could have had it spicy it would have been even more 'syok' but i will be back for that. Overall, service... More

We were taken by friends and were most impressed. We arrive in middle of a monsoon after a drive through torrential rain The dinner was made a great success by the "cabaret" dancers from all the local cultures (Ensure you book a table near the stage) Excellent value for money and worth seeking out. It is off main drag.

Awesome food presentation even if it's just a nasi lemak dish. Very decent ambience and table setting. Best of all, they are on Fave. Affordable meal in KL.

Made a reservation based on feedback from TripAdvisor. Extremely disappointed. The ambiance was extremely simple and the restaurant was dead with only one other table. We looked forward to our first Malay meal and again we're totally disappointed in the quality of the food. Prawn appetiser was mostly potato & one tiny prawn in the center. The spring rolls had...

This authentic Malaysian cuisine restaurant catches your eye the moment you see it. I had the Nasi Goreng Kampung with Satay, savoury yet not too spicy with delicious satay sauce! We were lucky enough to witness one of their live interactive performances of a traditional tribal dance, superb! Would we come back again? Absolutely yes!

We enjoyed our recent visit to Songket restaurant for my friend's birthday. Harun, our waiter was very helpful with choosing the dishes. Food was traditional with a mix of dishes to suit most tastes. Apparently they have traditional music and entertainment on some nights. Overall a very pleasant experience!
