This joint is almost out of place on Bukit Bintang and yet eclectic is the rule here. The Whisky Bar has the best selection of whiskey I have seen so far in Asia and for anyone coming from the West, the prices are pretty good. And they are serious about the spirits given the glasses they use and the selection... More

Excellent selection of whiskies but a bit pricey. Terrible food. Had steak on the bone. Tough meat with no flavour. Why serve a hot steak on a cold plate. Took one mouthful then gave up. Staff just asked if i had finished, told him food was terrible and he simply walked away and returned with the bill.

Fantastic selection of whiskey and other drinks. Probably the cheapest pint of Guinness in KL. Great service with a constant supply of snacks.

Recommend to me and I can see why, a whiskey lovers dream. I went for ' around the world' tasting set. I thought it was great value, really enjoyed the Japanese & Canadian dram's It's a must visit and the foods pretty good too....but that might just be the whiskey talking.

Great drink selection (of course)! Sat outside so we could people watch. Also had a few snacks which were just what we needed! Good staff...always there if you needed something (without being too overbearing). Would recommend if you fancy a few drinks in the busier part of the city.

Although it's a steakhouse the whisky menu is about 20 pages longer, I think it's more of a whisky club but the steaks looked nice so for a change I ordered the one the size of my head, 700+g of porterhouse for about £30, steak tasted great and well cooked had to send jacket spud back as it was cold...

Very classy. I liked the outdoor seating, you can sit there even if it rains, because they just extend the roof over the tables. Perfect for people-watching. The staff is nice, quick and efficient. They are not even walking, they are almost running around, and you can see how hard they are trying to please the customers. I ordered two... More

Wow this place is whisky heaven. I've never seen a selection like this, and the staff most certainly knew what they were talking about. I'm a girl and not a fan of whisky, I ordered bourbon & coke, but they didn't turn their noses up like in more snobby places in London. My friend had the whisky sampler, it was... More
