  • This restaurant is at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel
Dining at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel is a whole new experience in Essence, our Signature restaurant. Essence offers an á la carte menu and an international buffet brought to life with flair by the master chefs. Watch chefs magically conjure local dishes at the Asian favourites counter and fire up the Western grill with the choicest steaks, or select your favourite treats at the dim sum display and savour the premium selection of our fresh seafood bar as a wide selection of noodles is expertly tossed at the noodle bar. Finally, succumb to the decadent dessert spiral, an eye-catching work of art in itself.
