"Bijan Bar and Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia"
It was one of those nights. In Kuala Lumpur for the first time, eager to see as much as possible, but careful not to fall into the usual tourist routes. Not easy, but not impossible either. Dinner time, and no place to go. We walked and looked around in the KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Center) but all we found was bars and restaurants, Italian, Thai, whatever targeting backpackers and some expats in search for some fun. Not exactly our type of evening.
Suddenly, just when we were starting to feel lost, a great idea.
Back to our hotel, the Mandarin Oriental (I still cannot forget the magnificent view of the Petronas Towers right outside of our room window) and straight to the concierge for some advice. Taxi, not more than ten minutes, and we finally arrive at our destination. Bijan Restaurant on Jalan Ceylon.
What we found was exactly what we were looking for. Traditional Malay Cuisine served in a relaxed sphere, high quality service and never the feeling of being pushed to order what we do not want by the waiters. Wood everywhere, good distance between the tables, very soft candle lights. A very nice open terrace, where we found a table for two and enjoyed our first Malay dinner.
A bottle of red wine, and the wide selection of dishes from the menu of Bijan Restaurant were exactly what we needed that night, after a long hot day walking around the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. We will be back, and our advice to our readers is: if you happen to visit Kuala Lumpur, keep one night free for a dinner at Bijan Restaurant.
