Went to Songket after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and confirming with the hotel concierge. Arrived there at 8:30 pm for dinner on a Saturday night and the huge restaurant was surprisingly empty both inside or outside. During the 2 hours we spent there, only 4 other tables were filled and the total number of guests that evening must have been around 20 at the maximum. Considering the good quality and taste of the food, this was surprising indeed but it also meant that the very friendly and attentive staff had all the time to attend to us and read our wishes before we even asked! The cultural dance show is quite entertaining but definitely looks and feels touristic. The food itself may not be 100% authentic, i.e. slightly customized to expats' taste but is otherwise very good. There probably are restaurants that serve better food as some reviewers have pointed out but there is definitely nothing wrong with this one and I wouldn't hesitate to select it for any special occasion or business venue. You can also find much cheaper restaurants that serve the same sort of Malay food but from experience, they're more of mass-restaurants and the food is not necessarily as refined as you would find it here.
