Malay Fine Dining Cuisine at Bijan Restaurant Bukit Ceylon
Where to find delicious Malaysian desserts in Kuala Lumpur? When you ask most locals where is the best Malay fine dining restaurant, the answer is always Bijan Restaurant at Bukit Ceylon or Ceylon Hill. They have built their reputation from scratch for being the top Malay fine dine restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. In our recent visit to Bijan Restaurant, we tasted some of their popular Malay cuisine.
The restaurant is ideally located at Ceylon Hill next to the ever busy Changkat Bukit Bintang. The backdrop of this restaurant is the KL Tower and it lit up beautifully at night. They offer valet parking services so you don’t worry about parking if you dine here.

We had dinner and ordered some of their popular main dishes. First dish of the night is the Opor Rusuk which is the Stewed Beef Ribs in Spices. Words can’t describe how delicious is this beef ribs. The beef ribs is stewed to perfection. The texture is soft and it literally melts in the mouth and you can taste the flavours of the spices, toasted coconut, Gula Melaka (palm sugar) and coconut milk. The thick gravy and the beef makes it good with the rice. This is a must order.
Masak Lemak Udang dengan Nenas means prawn stir fried with pineapple. What we love about this dish is the sauce is not too thick and not too spicy. Not forget to mention about the huge fresh prawns they use for this dish. You get the taste of the sweetness and also the combination of the light coconut milk and chilies. This goes well with the rice.
Kambing Berempah Sambal Dendeng is a baked sliced lamb loin with sambal chili sauce. What interesting is they marinated the Australian lamb loin in turmeric, lemongrass, ginger and spices before they baked it. The beauty of Malay cuisine is the usage of the spices so the food is aromatic and flavourful. We love the combination of the lamb loin and the sambal dendeng. This is a lamb dish you won’t forget.
This is a unique way to present Ikan Siakap Sos Asam or the Seabass with tamarind Sauce. The fish meat is cut to slices and deep fried to perfection. Each and every single fish slice is crispy and yet tender on the inside. It is then complement with their special sauces of peanut and tamarind sauce, slices of raw four angled bean, red onions and red chillies. Fried food is addictive and so is this dish.
Ayam Masak Merah is a popular Malay cuisine. It is a simple but yet delicious chicken dish that can goes along with rice, noodle or mee hoon. The chicken pieces are fried first before simmered in sweet and spicy sauce of chillies, tomatoes and spices. What we love is the texture of the chicken is still tender and it goes very well with rice.
The Sotong Hitam Manis means Black Sweet Squid. Don’t judge the book by its cover. The black sauce is sweet and the squid is cooked with chilli paste, lemongrass and squid ink. The squid is cooked to perfection. Many restaurants tend to overcook the squid to rubbery texture. This is something you can consider to order when you dine in Bijan.
Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak is something new we tasted in Bijan. Pucuk Paku is a type of wild fern that is very popular in Sarawak. You don’t find it in Kuala Lumpur and we were surprised to find this dish. We had pucuk paku when we were traveling in Kuching but never had one in Kuala Lumpur before. It is stir fried with chili and caramelised coconut with prawns. If you never tasted wild ferns before, you should try this.
