  • Tamarind Hill – 19A, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur; Great tranquil ambience and good food. This place is always the top of my list when arrive in KL. I love the use of the black lacquer bamboo in the interior scheme.
  • NEO Tamarind – 19, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala LumpurThey have a great Zen outdoor area and make a fabulous cocktail!  They serve great modern Thai food and aren’t afraid of making the dishes nice and spicy…just the way I like it!
  • Marini’s on 57 @ Petronas Tower 3; I just love coming here for dinner or just for drinks.  To look out and see the Petrona’s towers so close you can touch it, is just an awesome sight to behold.
  • Zipangu – Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur, 1 Jalan Sultan Ismail; For modern Japanese cuisine that still pays homage to being authentic. Not only amazing food but they have a great wine and sake cellar.
  • The 39 Restaurant – PNB Darby Park, 10 Jalan Binjai ; They serve contemporary style Malaysian food and the restaurant boasts a killer view of the city skyline with the great vibe of live music.
