Visited with a local work colleague. Great views of the Towers from the bar area. A good range of steaks with a variety of sauces. Cooked to perfection - medium rare. Service was friendly and attentive.

Service was good and all the meals came together, order a steak Medium-rare unfortunately it was more medium-well, which isn't unusual in KL so my mistake. Unfortunate the restaurant view is not tower side.

A very pleasant place to relax especially in the evening and look out on the Twin Towers. Very nice bar area with comfortable seating and staff who are both helpful and attentive. The grill is set on one side of the bar and cannot be seen from the seating area. The food in the grill is excellent and as the... More

Steak was not bad but not great especially given the price. Waiters do not have much knowledge of the steak and can give very little insight on the menu. Just another hotel restaurant. Beware, we asked for tap water but they served san pellegrino at RM25 a bottle instead!

In dire need of some decent management. We went for the New Years 6 course banquet and the service was in absolute shambles. The staff were keen to try their best but the kitchen let them down terribly and no one knew what was going on. 1 hour wait between some of our meals and the food was average at... More

Went with my wife and baby, and we each had Crispy and Tender (200g Sirloin steak) and Grilled Angus Tenderloin with Foie Gras. We had the steaks at medium rare, very well prepared and awesome taste, nothing more to say! However the soft shell crab with my Sirloin was a bit let down, tasted like a regular deep fried fritter... More

I was told that Gobo Upstairs Grill served the best steaks in town so I decided to try for myself. I ordered a 200gm Tenderloin and it was certainly the best I have tasted in a long time. Cooked just the way I like it. It was however a little short of vegetables which I think is sad. I also... More

Description
Steaks grilled to perfection

Slick, Sexy and New Age is the only way to describe Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill. At the lounge, whilst sipping your favourite martini, whether stirred or shaken, the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and the illumination from the surroundings makes a stunning masterpiece to behold. The Lounge makes an impressive beverage menu with cocktails being the specialty and is conducive for before and after dinner cocktails and digestives.

At the Grill, enjoy a well-designed dinner in a cosy yet stylish atmosphere. The Grill offers arguably the best steaks with different fine cuts. Gobo Upstairs' team of fine chefs maintains that the best way to enjoy a piece of steak is to have it grilled and that is exactly how they will prepare it for their guests and to their preference. Sauces and accompaniments are available as side orders.
