We ate at Kudos, "modern European dining" two or three times because it was located only a block from our hotel and served wine and beer. The menu was pretty standard American/European fare and the food was good (not special). The service was very good...More

Dined here as a farewell dinner of our tour group. Meals were all tasty but nothing outstanding. Wait staff are great. Drink prices are a little high. Wines are expensive and beer choice limited. Nice restaurant fitout. Great background music played

We stopped in one evening for coffee/tea and desserts...and certainly were not disappointed! We ordered the chocolate profiteroles and the sticky date pudding...both of which were wonderful desserts to end a lovely evening walking around town.

We had a very civilized dinner, gin and tonic each, shared the Caesar Salad and garlic bread, had mushroom risotto and pollo with linguini as mains. Total bill with tip $50 USD. Expensive for KK, but in the U.S. this would be very reasonable. Good...More

The food was excellent and the presentation very professional. Prices are a bug high for the average restaurant in Sabah but I guess they are in a market that can command that extra few dollars. Was a busy place and I would suggest you book...More

Checked into Jesselton Hotel late and needed somewhere close to get decent food. This completely fit the bill. Nothing spectacular, but reasonable prices on interesting pizzas (got the spicy beef, which was a nice combo of Italian and Malaysian).

Worst dining experience and meal. Definitely not fine dining, given the service and bad quality of food served. Its probably worst than a casual dining cafe. This restaurant charges RM20 for birthday cake or rather charges corkage fee for cake which is ridiculous and upsetting....More

Kudos first opened its doors on 24th March 2014 in the main Central Business District of Kota Kinabalu at the iconic Jesselton Hotel where the casual dining restaurant has an airy, modern yet classic feel to it. Within our newly launched a la carte menu we proudly serve a selection of modern British food which incorporates French, Italian, Mediterranean and other European dishes complimented with ever-changing weekly specials. The wine list is cosmopolitan and has a modest selection of wines by the glass from a light Sauvignon Blanc to a robust Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz to satisfy the most discerning wine enthusiast. Our European Executive Chef and culinary team are committed to using, where possible, local sourced organic produce, premium meats and sustainable seafood. It is the perfect venue for a relaxing breakfast, a business lunch, a romantic candlelight dinner or a meeting place with family and friends. Reservations are recommended.
