Essence is a one-of-a-kind culinary concept in Kuala Lumpur, serving interactive all-day å la carte and international buffet menus brought to life with flair by master chefs, to guests and diners seeking an exceptional, indigenous gourmet event. Against a stunning backdrop of bright, contrasting colors from flashy red and trendy black to warm orange and yellow hues offset by a bold hand-laid mosaic wall, the lively ambience offered her is a burst of fresh air in the city’s dining scene, and is already energizing dining here—from casual meals and friendly get-togethers to business meals and gourmet explorations—like never before.
Under an expansive skylight that lets in ample natural sunlight, your day at Essence begins with an organic breakfast selection to start you off on a healthy note while also pleasing the palate. For lunch and dinner, master chefs create dishes from around the world with visual drama and theatrics at live cooking stations and in show kitchens for a dining event that engages all your senses and heartily satisfies the appetite, using the freshest local produce. Watch chefs magically conjure local dishes at the Asian favorites counter and fire up the western grill with the choicest steaks, or select your favorite treats at our dim sum display and savor the premium selection of our seafood raw bar as pasta is expertly tossed at the noodle bar. Finally, we invite you to succumb to our decadent dessert spiral, an eye-catching work of art in itself—we promise that all your wildest gastronomical dreams will come true.
Essence extends the warmest Malaysian hospitality topped with international-level service that exceeds every expectation. A list of premium wines and spirits is offered to complement all dining events. On Saturdays the restaurant offers a delightful High Tea buffet that includes local cuisines and a dynamic menu that changes according to seasons or depending on local events.
In celebration of Deepavali, the chef will prepare a festive menu and will pleasantly surprise all diners with mouth-watering dishes like Indian fish tikka salad with channa, onion and coriander; Indian style marinated chicken; his version of the all-time Malaysian favourite, Sup Kambing ala mamak and much, much more!
