The steaks are well prepared and the sides reasonably priced. Would return again and again for excellent quality food, service and ambience. Probably a lot better in terms of food quality, price and service over other grills around town.

Steak was not bad but not great especially given the price. Waiters do not have much knowledge of the steak and can give very little insight on the menu. Just another hotel restaurant. Beware, we asked for tap water but they served san pellegrino at RM25 a bottle instead!

Description
Steaks grilled to perfection

Slick, Sexy and New Age is the only way to describe Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill. At the lounge, whilst sipping your favourite martini, whether stirred or shaken, the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and the illumination from the surroundings makes a stunning masterpiece to behold. The Lounge makes an impressive beverage menu with cocktails being the specialty and is conducive for before and after dinner cocktails and digestives.

At the Grill, enjoy a well-designed dinner in a cosy yet stylish atmosphere. The Grill offers arguably the best steaks with different fine cuts. Gobo Upstairs' team of fine chefs maintains that the best way to enjoy a piece of steak is to have it grilled and that is exactly how they will prepare it for their guests and to their preference. Sauces and accompaniments are available as side orders.
