If you’re looking for a true taste of Malaysia, then what better way to do that than with a mix of authentic food and a cultural dance show?!
Fortunately in Kuala Lumpur there are a few restaurants that offer buffet-style dining (some also offering ‘a la carte’ choices) and also put on a cultural dance show daily for you to enjoy while you eat. A perfect setting to share with visiting friends and family and a guaranteed winner if you’re dining with children as they’ll be mesmerized by the colorful costumes and drum beat as performers take the stage.
I haven’t been to any of these restaurants (yet!) but thanks to one of my followers of this page, Sri Ratu, I now know where to go for a cultural evening; and we’re happy to share them with you too! If you make it to one of these restaurants before I do, let me know how it was; I’d love to hear about your experience! Got another address for me to add to this little collection? Drop me a comment below and I’ll happily add it! Bon appetit, S x
Open 12.00-15.00, and 18.00-23.00
Songket Restaurant is a fine-cuisine Malay restaurant, offering authentic local food while also providing guests with live traditional Malay entertainment.
The restaurant is located onJalan Yap Kwan Seng within walking distance from the iconic Kuala Lumpur City Centre and the Petronas Twin Towers.
The reviews online for Songket say that the food is delicious and the performances are excellent! Definitely worth trying!
Saloma Bistro and Theatre Restaurant
This restaurant is located at Mat1c (on Jalan Ampang) and is open daily from 11.00 to 22.30.
While Mat1c are known for their free cultural performances in the day, there’s no surprise that, by night, this restaurant offers a Malaysian showcase of both food and entertainment.
The reviews that I have read for Saloma are outstanding so add this to you to-do-list!

Varying reviews online about the food selection but the cultural dance is supposedly outstanding.
