Being only a few minutes away from Kuala Lumpur city center, Bangsar South is one of the most popular places to both live and travel to in the whole region. If you find yourself in the area, you might need to find a Bangsar South restaurant to either entertain or feed you, depending on your needs. So, what are the best options, and what makes them special?
On visiting to review these locations, I became a huge fan of some of the options here and it was hard to find real criticisms. So, read on and discover what my favorites were and which you should visit.
1. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Oriental Treasure
One of the joys of staying in Southlink Bangsar South during a visit is you get to go to restaurants like Oriental Treasure each evening. It is a place I would have loved to enjoy more if I had more time in the area.
As a combination dim sum and BBQ cuisine location, I was not sure what to expect, but it turns out I should have expected the best.
Both I and my girlfriend tried some of the set menus. As we are fans of going with locations’ specials, I picked up the Oriental Treasure’s Appetizers. This included a Crispy Pork Belly that was crunchy enough to be al dente but not tough while retaining its perfect flavor.
My girlfriend skipped the appetizers and went for the Oriental Treasure’s Featured Treasures. This had such delights as a Steamed Deep-Sea Garoupa, as well as Beancurd Skin. She was from the area and said it was some of the best and freshest she’s ever had.
As for the people working in the restaurant, they were a little rushed but that seemed to be due to how popular the location was. They provided us with our seats and then were very attentive when we had questions or wanted to order specific things. They helped us find some of the lesser-ordered items on the menu to widen our palate.
With the recommendations of the staff, we found a delicious mix of extras alongside our set menu. Ask them for the same when you visit to get a unique experience you might not otherwise get a chance to enjoy.
While this location was not fine dining, it was very much adequate for a visit with family or an evening out.
2. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Khan’s Indian Cuisine
When you are in Malaysia, food is so diverse due to the country having such easy access to so many other interesting regions nearby. By visiting Khan’s Indian Cuisine, you get one of the most delicious examples of this.
I recommend you try a lunchtime Thaali set meal for a little bit of everything. It comes as a platter that works great as a whole meal. We grabbed the Maharajah Feast, which even had a wide range of meats and vegetables, allowing me to take a little bit of everything with each bite.
3. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Farm Restaurant
If you want more of a taste of the outdoors, one of our best travel tips would be to visit this location. Almost every square inch of the inside has more plants than you would expect could survive, giving the whole place a fresh and breezy smell.
As for the food, the location prides itself on being part of a simple “farm-to-table” supply chain, so everything is very fresh. As such, we would recommend the Chicken Satay burger, which we thought to be delicious washed down with their Pearple Rain signature juice.
4. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Edo Ichi
As mentioned in other reviews, I am a big fan of both sushi and hotpot dishes. This location, close to The Sphere Bangsar South, allows me to indulge in one of those joys.
While their a la carte menus were very diverse, I went back to the set menu to try some of the items they want to promote more. They impressed me with both the quality of the food as well as the price.
They cut the sashimi thicker than I usually expect, which is not a complaint, and it was very fresh. I also enjoyed a ramen soup, with several delicious ingredients. The location is worth a return.
5. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Rasa Viet
When searching through some of the best places to eat in the region, I was glad to have come across this location. When I turned up, I was very hungry and worried about small portions of fancy food. My fears melted away when I saw my bowl filled almost to the brim with soup, with the ingredients stacked so high they almost overflowed.
My girlfriend went for a few smaller menu items, such as the Vegetarian Fried Roll and Grilled Lemongrass Chicken. By the end, she said she found them simple yet satisfying.
We finished the meal with some coconut ice cream, which complemented everything else very well.
6. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Oiso Korean Restaurant
When choosing a restaurant, we checked the reviews online for various locations. They all suggested the Oiso Korean Restaurant was a great place to try, and they were not lying.
The place was busy, but we still got a good table. While the price was a little high, we did enjoy the Spicy Grill Chicken Set, with extra cheese. My partner got a Bibimbap, and she described it as wholesome and hearty, which is sometimes all you need.
7. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Home Noodle
If you are eating healthy, this is a simple place with simple food that will neither break the bank nor destroy your diet.
The location has a variety of different base soups to choose from, as well as many different mains. We were not sure which to pick, but the waiting staff was able to help guide us to some popular options.
I had the Tom Yum with Fish Fillet, which ended up being very moreish. My girlfriend had a tomato base with scallops, which she did not expect to like but finished hers before me. The staff also complimented us on our dresses, which has nothing to do with the food but made me smile.
8. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Tonkatsu by Ma Maison
I was always taught a good katsu is the cornerstone of a wholesome meal. For that reason, I picked up the Okonomi Katsu here, and it fulfilled everything I needed.
With refillable rice and soup, I also indulged, asking for a few too many refills. I got my money’s worth, but at no point did they complain. Come here if you are hungry.
9. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Barcook Bakery
Having made these delicious baked goods on-site, we managed to get some warm bread options here for lunch. The bread was fresh, making it indulgent and filling.
I had a Cheesy Pepper Sauce-Sage, which was a sausage encased in a bread bun, with melted cheese and black pepper on top. These flavors worked together to bring a perfect taste to my mouth.
10. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
This lovely little cafe is great for popping into if you need a hit of caffeine, or want to try one of their delicate cakes.
Picking up a Baklava Delight and some of their Distinctive and Light coffee to make at home meant we could have the same taste for several days. Talk to the baristas here if you are searching for a specific type of coffee, as they seem to know their stuff.
11. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Sunbather Coffee
This light and airy coffee location had far more space inside than I would have expected. Whereas many cafes try to get you to move on fast, I did not feel that here and could have come with a group of friends for a fun and talkative evening.
They do have a wide range of foods, which have good descriptions on their menu even if no pictures. I grabbed one of their Maple Peanut Chicken Sando sandwiches, which they had filled to bursting with ingredients. I was very impressed with how willing they were to fill me up with their tasty food.
12. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Nyonya Tingkat Signature
I have not had enough Peranakan foods, only learning the term recently, but this location has brought me on board.
I tried the Salted Fish Fried Rice, along with some Chicken Hor Fun Soup. Both were well-cooked and not overspiced, meaning I could enjoy them while talking and relaxing with my friends.
While we ate, very friendly staff attended to our needs. We noted they were not overzealous in their eagerness to please, and unlike some other places, we did not feel overwhelmed by table visits.
When you go, also try the Nyonya Ale. This was a flavorful twist on a recipe that helped wash down everything I ate.
13. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Take a Bow
This was a cute, little quiet place we knew we would enjoy as soon as we saw how minimalist it was. Compared to some of the busier places in the region it was a breath of relief.
We only had a few small things to eat here as we were in the middle of other reviews, but what we had was delicate and tasty.
My partner had the Truffled Mushroom Soup, which came with sourdough croutons. She described them as “creamy and satisfying.” I chose to go for the Lemon Oregano Chicken With Couscous, which was a little bit more filling and very light.
I want to return here and give it another go. Take a bow, Take a Bow, you deserve it!
14. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - CHAGEE Express
A small location to give you the tea infusion you need to continue with your day. CHAGEE has so many different flavors, it is worth several trips to try all the ones you might like.
I am a huge fan of the Ostamntus Oolong Milk Tea, but I tried out the Camellia Oolong too, which was glorious in its sumptuousness. Try out the premium brews.
15. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Nakamura Bashi Restaurant
Another location with wonderful soup bowls and a wide range of ingredients. After picking what I wanted, pouring the broth in was a delicate procedure using a kettle that made me feel like I had complete control of my meal. Malaysian food is often good for this, but this location felt even better.
The people working there helped me choose some of the best ingredients they had, and I was grateful to be able to talk to them. Come here on a good evening, overload your bowl, and dive deep into an ocean of flavor.
16. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Agrain
As a self-stylized “build your own bowl” location, Agrain has a huge amount of choice. They do have preset bowls, but not all are for everyone.
I tried the chunky potato salad with a turmeric chicken thigh and orange carrot juice. I felt especially healthy if I ignored the potato salad.
The food was great, though, and I felt I could either eat in or take away at ease. Perfect for a small lunch or a hearty evening meal around the Kuala Lumpur area.
17. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Buena Brasa Gastropub
Spanish restaurants are not especially common in the area, so the introduction of Buena Brasa to Bangsar South is a welcome sight.
Their food was fast to the table, despite the location being busy, so we tucked in right away. I had the Slow Cooked Pork Rib with Corn On the Cob. The meat fell off the bone as you would hope and they had grilled the corn so it was a little sweet, which I appreciated.
18. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Five O'clock Brasserie
This location prides itself on its imported Italian chef who makes a variety of his favorite dishes. He incorporates some Malaysian flavors into it, to make what he calls a taste of “The Real Italy,” which feels like he is buttering up the customers a little.
The food is exquisite, though. Everything from the Black Angus Beef Cheese Burger to the Fish & Chips are amazing choices, and we recommend getting a dessert too.
The Chocolate Lava Cake might be the most expensive “Sweet Treat,” but it is to die for. This kind of thing is not a flavor you often find around the city.
19. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock
Despite coming here during the busy lunchtime, we found the service to be very fast. Sometimes in the region, you find places to be slower due to how busy they are. Instead, it seemed like they were well-practiced at skilled serving, so we got our delectable lunch fast.
I had a Chinese Porridge because I only wanted something simple, but it was still very hearty and I sat back at the end, content. My partner had the Cantonese Noodle dish. She said it did not taste as they expected, it was a little sweet, but she still enjoyed it.
20. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Porki Culture
Coming here with my family was one of the best choices I made while I was here in Malaysia. They make a wonderful Crispy Pork Fried Rice that even my grumpy father admitted was some of the greatest he’s had.
My sister had a Seafood Tomyum, which she thought was a little spicy. Though, she was never much one for even a small amount of spice, so you will have to take that feedback with a pinch of salt. I had the BBQ Pork Rice with Egg and it satisfied me for the rest of the day.
21. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Botanica+Co
Being down the road from Nexus Bangsar South makes Botanica+Co a good choice for anyone in the area.
They offer an all-day menu online, meaning you can check what you want ahead of time. I picked up the Shawarma Bowl, which had plenty of great ingredients, including quinoa to fill up where you might see a wrap used in other locations. I would be happy to have another in the future.
22. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Amber Chinese Muslim Restaurant
While I am not Muslim, I came here with a friend who was, and she was very happy to have a location that catered to her. Malaysia’s cuisine does not always cater to Muslim diets, so it is good to see.
She was very happy with the Sizzling Tofu with Minced Meat Sauce, while she recommended the Masam Manis Tofu with Sweet Sour Sauce Tofu. We shared a little of one another’s food and were both impressed.
Whether you are Muslim or not, give it a go regardless of the name.
23. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Dao Xiang Chinese Cuisine
Another location around Kuala Lumpur that does great hot pot is always nice to find. They have signature braised hot pot sets, so I of course had to indulge.
I enjoyed their Braised Hot Pot options, which included Tiger Prawn and Mud Crab, both of which worked well with the broths they had. I was here with a large group of friends, and we all enjoyed the ambiance and how well the staff treated us. So I hope you have a similar experience when you visit.
24. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - SMORES
This location advertises using many pictures of delicious meats, sauces, and other food. I had worries these were inaccurate, but when I tried their food, I was happy to find their real offerings were exactly as good.
Heading in for their brunch, I tried out their Kimchi Ramen, which was a fantastic and succulent pork belly in a ramen bowl with moreish broth. A good broth is always a dealbreaker in Malaysian cuisine.
I came away satisfied and feeling like I had enough to keep me going the rest of the day. Try it out as soon as you can.
25. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Secret Recipe
With a name like Secret Recipe, it feels like you are going to be trying out something unexpected, but in honesty, many of the foods here are not too unique. They do not taste bad at all, though, so I cannot complain as I enjoyed my lunch.
Vegetarians are also offered a wide-ranging menu, giving them more options than in other locations. It was nice to see this and I should return with my vegetarian girlfriend another time.
26. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Dolce Vita Ristorante Pizzeria
As another Italian location, I almost compared it with the other option above, but in honesty, they had very different menus.
I would recommend you go with their pizza menu. I had the Prosciutto Cotto e Funghi pizza, and the dough was a delicious, soft option that complemented the toppings well. It was a knife-and-fork pizza, which I was not used to, but well worth it.
27. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Public House
This Asian Fusion Restaurant felt like fine dining, and both I and my girlfriend enjoyed both the ambiance and the food on the evening we visited.
Their Caramelized Roast Pork was delectable, being dark from the soy sauce they added to give it a tang, but that was only the appetizer. For the main meal, we had a Spanish Suckling Lamb Leg sharing platter, and it felt very indulgent. One of the better dates we’ve been on.
28. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Basic
This was a lovely little cafe with both warm coffee and bite-sized meals that help you get through the day. The ambiance felt like I could relax here with a book or a friend, talking the day away. Not something you often feel in local restaurants.
I had a simple Latte and some Peanut Butter French Toast. Both were more than enough to make me feel like the weight of the world had washed from my shoulders.
29. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - Kubis & Kale Bangsar South
With a name like Kubis & Kale, I was hoping for healthy options. I even hoped for vegan ingredients. While I found some great healthy choices, they had limited vegan choices, but at the very least they existed.
But with a great “Build Your Own Bowl” menu, they allow you to pick and choose from their wide range of options. The food was nice, the toppings were fresh, and the staff was helpful.
30. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - The Straits Estate
This location, not far from The Vertical Bangsar South, defines itself as a “comfort food” location. I am unsure if what they sell is comfort food, as it felt too light and well-made, whereas I am used to comfort food being more carbohydrate-based.
Still, it was all good. It was also “free-flow,” which to Western people means “all you can eat.” I used this a bit too much when it came to desserts, but it was all good.
The pots are also not dry, which you might expect from other free-flow locations. As many of them existed in closed pots or were sauce-based, this helped keep everything fresh.
31. Bangsar South Restaurant & Food - SOULed OUT
If you are looking for a good place for sports and food, this is the location in Malaysia for you. They have a big screen for when there are big events, promoting themselves as a sports venue. Still, they had to have good food to be worth talking about, which is why you see this review here.
They had both meals and finger food, depending on what you want to be there for. Between the Spicy Popcorn Chicken and the Tofu Puffs, we found plenty to nibble on while we talked and partied the night away.
Finding the Perfect Bangsar South Restaurant & Food
With all the above options, it is pretty clear that Publika food is some of the best in the area. Still, these are not the only places we recommend. There are a whole range of restaurants to visit in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding regions.
