    Before travelling to Malaysia we reserved a table for two at GOBO Upstairs. It was our second visit to the Traders Hotel by Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur. During a previous holiday we've been to the SkyBar with stunning views over the PETRONAS Twin Towers.

    This time around we decided beforehand we wanted lunch at one of the Traders' restaurants. Studying the menus online we picked GOBO Upstairs. Setting on a date we heard it was a bank holiday in Malaysia and the restaurant hadn't open, so we had to book our reservation for a different day. It wasn't a big problem, because we were flexible. It worked out for our second date.

    The interior was modern and had high ceiling windows.

    The staff was attentive and friendly.

    The polo shirt I was wearing was a talking point.

    It was newly bought at the DoubleTree by Hilton (see also review) and since the Traders is a competitor to the DoubleTree it garnered attention.

    We were joining GOBO Upstairs during the week for lunch. We weren't the only ones. GOBO was buzzing with a large mixed business group (some were Malay others were Chinese and Thai), a few couples and a lonely business man.

    There were different set menus and an a la carte menu available.

    We chose a la carte.

    Our drinks were a large bottle of Acqua Panna to share, a mango lassi and a Thai Collins Mocktail.

    A fresh bread selection was also served.

    The main courses were cod and sea bass with a side dish of green asparagus and parmesan cheese for both of us. We love this combination and the flavors.

    The desserts were of course the highlight. The presentation of each dish was done beautifully, but the most interesting was the berry sorbet. It was shaped like a cone. The tiramisu was also very good.

    We were happy with the ambience, the staff and the quality of the food. There's is no reason why we shouldn't go back yet again when in Kuala Lumpur.

    Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
    Would we again visit this restaurant for lunch? YES!

    Here are some of our photos we took during our lunch at Gobo Upstairs, Traders Hotel by Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, November 2013:
