Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grills, Traders Hotel - Kuala Lumpur

Its wifey birthday! A romantic dinner would be great for her. Google around for best restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Found tripadvisor.com lists. Tripadvisor.com has been my favourite "advisor" for hotel and destination guides. Now would like to try for restaurant. Listed "Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill" at #3 (as for December 2010). Initially wanted to dine on 25th, however on 24th & 25th December, Gobo offer 4 courses menu that would cost Rm 188++ per person. When I called for reservation on 13th Dec, they are fully booked.

I have no choice to move a day a bit later. So here we are, on 26th December at Gobo Upstairs. Called twice and spoke with "Azhar". Very helpful staff to setup and make this arrangement.

The stylish elegance at Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill is ideal for intimate dinners and special celebrations. Framed by views of the spectacular Petronas Twin Towers, guests can savor cuisine uniquely prepared by Jr Sous Chef, Melvin Brandon Chong. In addition to serving the best steak in town, Gobo Upstairs offers an imaginative cocktail list and an expansive wine selection.
