Set within the iconic Tunkul Abdul Rahman room with its statement wall featuring 50 pop art portraits of Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, Antara represent modern Malaysian fine dining at its best. Strictly MSG-free, Antara’s cuisine is a culmination of fiercely guarded family recipes and soul food. Our signature dish of Marron lobster Sarawak laksa is one not to be missed.


Anson Colonial Cafe is an informal restaurant located on Antara’s ground floor space serving interpretations of Colonial Malaysian cuisine, originally started by early Hainanese settlers who cooked for their British colonial masters. Chicken chops and sizzling steaks commonly typify this Western-influenced cuisine.


Abacus Lounge sits on the first level glasshouse of Antara Restaurant and offers guests a discreetly stylish space in which to enjoy bespoke cocktails and Malaysian-inspired bar bites accompanied by stunning skylight views of the KL Tower. Our signature cocktails exude a spirit of Malaysiana, from the Abacus Cocktail made with pandanus, tuak (Borneo rice wine) and Cointreau to the Ms. Chai, which stars Glenmorangie whisky, chrysanthemum tea and ginger ale.
