Fancy a good solid Brit fare in Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC)? Well, do I have a recommendation for you!
Harrods is a fine dining establishment in Suria KLCC or the shopping mall under the famous Twin Towers. I first dined there when it opened in 2009 and saw that there was a chef from Harrods HQ in London and another expat manager. A fair guess would be that the menus and fit-outs were all under the HQ’s specs, and the waiters all underwent silver-service training.
In the front is a retail section with a range of Harrods branded merchandises including dry foods, teas, coffees and the signature Harrods shopping bags and teddy bears. There is also an impressive bar area for drinks. Since then, the store has added a bakery section selling cakes, pastries and macarons – business must be good, with Harrods expanding into Harrods Cafe on the ground floor, which I had done a review here.
The restaurant is at the back, modelled after the famous Georgian Restaurant in Harrods London. It is very comfortable and relaxing i.e quiet and far from the maddening crowds in the mall. The toilet is nice too. Scented Harrods liquid soap, moisturiser and towels are provided.
Harrods serves traditional British fares.
For lunch on weekdays, they serve Set Menu (Choice of Salad or Soup, Main and a Drink) which works out to be more cost-effective (cheaper). Here is a sample:
Complimentary Bread and Butter
Drinks: Harrods do not serve water, they only serve bottled waters, that means you have to pay!
Appetiser: Soup of the Day
Mains: There are a couple to choose from which rotates daily
A la Carte Includes:
Harrods also offers a British High Tea Set in the afternoons. I have not tried it, perhaps you have and do let me know what you think!
