Dewakan brings world-class fine dining to a restaurant in the middle of nowhere (in Glenmarie). Some may scoff at its high price, but think of it like paying for a concerto in your mouth. Dewakan takes Malaysian ingredients and local flavours and presents it in...More

Many Europeans find the traditional Malaysian Cuisine challenging, with blachang , ikan bilis and fiery sambals. However at the Dewakan you will experience a startling transformation ! The chef has worked in Denmark at Noma, regarded by many as the best restaurant in the world...More

Let me go straight to the point. We went here mid October and tried Dewakan's 17 course menu, one regular and one vegetarian (available upon request when you make your reservation). They dealt with the vegetarian request so, so well. The kitchen created completely new...More

Yes it's not on the beaten track but well worth finding. This chef is a genius at combining flavours in creative ways. Presentation & service were also 1st rate. If you're in KL & looking for amazing cuisine seek this place out.

We had the 17-course menu and loved every course. The dishes were beautifully made up and each had delicate flavours. It was great to experience a combination of real western fine dining (finally, a restaurant that gets it) combined with Asian flavours and ingredients. Service...More

Dewakan can easily beat some of the Michelin starred restaurants hands down. Chef Darren's creativity with local ingredients, whilst staying true to his Asian roots and elevation in the composition of both in every single dish is remarkable to say the least. Don't skimp or...More

Unfortunately I am not sure about that. Best to check with the restaurant manager directly. They are contactable via email or telephone.

Dewakan is a name from two Malay words. "Dewa", the Malay word for god and "Makan" which means to eat or just simply; food. To us Dewakan means food from God, and as a restaurant we want to honour the bounty and the blessing given to our land. We want to connect the ingredients from our seas, farms, mountains and jungles to a canvas that is our plate in the most interesting way we know how.
