Tribes member Farhana Ayu visited KL for a work trip pre-covid and was amazed by Songket Restaurant's amazing halal food and cultural entertainment! If wanderlust hasn't hit you hard just yet, this one will have you wanting to travel again.

Songket Restaurant KL

The first time I went to Songket Restaurant was during my KL work trip company dinner, where I was totally raving about this Restaurant, especially for its really good authentic Malay food cuisine with a modern twist!

It's also known for its live entertainment of traditional and cultural dance performances where diners get to join in the fun. They got to blow darts and learn how to perform cultural dances! This type of entertaining sit down dinner is highly recommended for families with children. I even came back here for a second round with my kids during our KL getaway.

While we were enjoying all the sumptuous good authentic Malay food, we were also kept busy being entertained & participated in the performances without feeling rushed at all to leave the restaurant. It was one of those dinners where the kids don't even need to play their mobile games! Simply Amazing!

My favourite dishes from Songket Restaurant are Pucuk Paku Goreng, Nasi Goreng Kampong and their Beef Rendang. Their dishes were all flavourful and reminded me of my Grandma's cooking, especially the Rendang.

Dining at Songket Restaurant certainly treats you to a Malaysia Truly Asia experience.

(Tip: Make advance reservation & request for front row seats to watch the performances)

If you have some time after the dinner, go for a slow walk to KLCC to watch the Symphony of Lights, take some photos with the admirable KLCC Tower or do some Shopping!
