The Golden Triangle in Kuala Lumpur is filled with places to experience and visit, such as the Petronas Tower, the KL Merina Tower and the entire Bukit Bintang street. The options in places to eat are tremendous, here are the top 10 restaurants.

Black Forest

Located at Changkat Bukit Bitang, this German venue  – as the name indicates – is a haven for authentic German food. Beer and schnapps are both available, and happy hours run before 8pm. The service is memorable, with the staff doing their best to make you comfortable and welcome. They aim to evoke that real Bavrian atmosphere.

Dining in the Dark

An intriguing experience but by no means the only one in the world, Dine in the Dark is exactly what its name implies – a meal served and enjoyed in darkness. The lack of light supposedly enhances the other senses such as taste and the quality of conversation is also said to improve significantly. The staff do an amazing job of guiding you through the menu and the meal. It’s an experience to be savored at least once.

Sao Nam Fine Vietnamese

Finding Sao Nam in the busy Bukit Bintang area can be tough, since it’s hardly visible from the outside. But step in and the place is an oasis of calm that takes you far away from the noise and crowds of the street. The Vietnamese food is great too, and has both set meals (combos) and a la carte options. The decor is simple, the staff is always smiling and the food is scrumptious.

#bhtan_saonam. 😍#kl_best_food. Mangosteen prawn salad. This one is so unique so pretty and tasty that it had to be one of the best! ======================================= Sao Nam: 😋😋😋😋 Price: $$ to $$$ Ambience: small restaurant. Nice decor Service: good except the drink guy can't seem to get the drink right. This is easily one of the best if the not the best Vietnamese restaurant in KL. At least the Tatler Malaysia agrees with me. It was voted one of the best in 2015. Price not cheap. Very much Recommended. ======================================== ##bhtan_vietnam #foodie#instafood #instagood #vsco #foodporn #delish#yum#yummy#tastegood#delicious#foodlover#instaphoto#instapic#foodpics#eating#food#foodgasm#nom#nomnom#hungry#vscocam#vscofood#eat#kleats #klfood #klfoodies #kualalumpur

Betel Leaf

The best Indian restaurant in the area, the Betel Leaf dishes out set meals (called thalis) and a la carte, and has people coming back for more. A short distance away from the KLCC, the place is unpretentious and a little easy to miss. The menu is a good balance of vegetarian and meat options, as well as things like rice and rotis (pan bread). What’s more, the staff are attentive and service is quick.
