The Starhill Dining Is Bound To Bedazzle In December 2020
Starhill Gallery, one of Kuala Lumpur's longest-running food and fashion hubs, is undergoing a 180-degree transformation, which includes a complete makeover of its F&B floor. Dubbed The Starhill Dining, the hotspot is deemed the heart of YTL Corporation's historic shopping mall. Get to know the who and what behind the highly anticipated revamp.
Zaidan Tahir, the lead designer
A stone's throw from the The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur and the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur, The Starhill Dining owes its sleek new look to interior designer Zaidan Tahir.
New look, new Shook!
Synonymous with live jazz and Champagne brunches, Shook! is cemented in many a Malaysian's early memories of fine dining in KL. But nostalgia alone won't guarantee return customers; as such, the all-day dining restaurant is shaking up its offerings to stay ahead of the curve in today's competitive market. Little has been revealed about the menu, save for the promise of "globally inspired gourmet experiences."
What's certain is this: Shook!'s cooking will be spearheaded by chefs Mo and Rafizan, previously of Enak KL.
Furthermore, Shook! will prioritise private events, hence its two exclusive spaces titled The Living Room and Shook! 118.
Besides Shook!, The Starhill Dining is also breathing life into the following: Luk Yu Tea House, which is inspired by Chinese tea culture; The Alchemy, a gin-centric bar for fans of botanicals; Tarbush Lounge, a specialist of fine Arabic cuisine; and Jogoya, once home to KL's most coveted Japanese buffets.
