Top 6 romantic dining in KL //

We are well aware that planning a romantic date can be quite stressful and thus, are here to ease (a bit of) your burden when it comes down to picking a romantic restaurant for whatever reason it may be. Here is the breakdown of the most romantic ones in the heart of our country.

1. Bijan

Bijan opened its doors in September 2003 to offer a unique dining experience to discerning palates. The Bijan experience is modern in presentation yet wholesome in flavour. Traditional Malay cuisine is taken out of hawker stalls and buffet lines, and served against a lush backdrop. Modern in its surroundings with distinctive Asian accents, Bijan is warm, yet chic; intimate yet spacious. They are having innovative ways of enjoying Malay food, introducing accompanying wine to enhance flavours and ways of preparing local delicacies in a fine balance of old and new. Their dishes are a mix of recipes handed down over the generations and innovations of the real thing, to produce forgotten favourites and delicious new flavours and textures. Located a mere stone throw’s away from KLCC and Bukit Bintang, Bijan is the ultimate destination for fine Malay cuisine. It is an oasis where you can unwind with a cool glass of wine while the food remains deliciously and unmistakably Malay.

If spicy and savoury is more you and your partner, then Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine is the place to be.

Dine on fine authentic Thai delicacies that hold nothing back to wow your taste buds and presentations that are full of colours and creativity. Delve down dishes like Steamed White Snapper Fish in Lime Juice & Chilli Sauce, Thai-styled Chicken Satay, Thai-styled Grilled Australian Tenderloin Steak with Tamarind Sauce and mouth-watering desserts while feeling unravelled from the hubbub of the city.
