First in line is Cava, a through and through Spanish restaurant that has been serving lip-smacking modern and traditional Spanish cuisine since 2006. With so many years of experience under its belt, it would be a waste if one did not try their signature dishes while being here.

2. Opus Bistro
To date, Opus Bistro has been serving up satisfied customers for almost 17 years and along the way has won many prestigious awards, including being voted as the top 20 restaurants in KL. Here diners can expect a subtle yet simplistic restaurant that serves hearty Italian flavours. Similar to other restaurants along Jalan Bangkung, the ambience of soft music, warm lighting coupled with a minimalistic feel of the décor sets the mood for a cosy meal.
Well, if you are here one should not miss out on their long-standing signature dishes. One of which is the Spaghetti ala Opus also known as the dish that made Opus famous.
Other favourites also include the Roasted Cod Fish and Grilled New Zealand Rack of Lamb. All of which is also available to be redeemed for free with just minimum spending using TABLEAPP ELITE membership!

4. Lucky Bo
Lucky Bo by day (11:00am – 4:00pm) and Wagyu by night (6:00am – 11:00pm) this restaurant serves different menus depending on the time of the day. It is a pretty interesting concept if you ask us.
During the day, Lucky Bo is a community cafe serving lip-smacking comfort food and local favourites made in-house. On the other hand, when the sun is down, it serves the best value steaks in town grilled to perfection using their beautiful red Josper charcoal oven. Not to mention, they are also well-known for their signature char kuay teow, cooked with Wagyu fat!

5. Leonardo's Dining Room & Wine Loft
Drawing inspiration from cuisines all around the world, Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft is truly a one-of-a-kind restaurant. Why so? Don’t be startled when you look into their menu to find out that the Kentucky Fried Frog is indeed not a typo. Yes, they serve frog and its lip-smacking good too!
Although the restaurant serves many specialty dishes from different cultures they sure did a pretty good job at perfecting it! Take these signature ELITE dishes, for example, Leo’s Famous Pork Knuckle Platter, Leo’s Famous Spanish Iberico Pork Tenderloin, and Grilled New Zealand Lamb Rack are all diners favourite.
