The highly-anticipated eponymous restaurant by multi-Michelin starred celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opened its doors to Malaysians in June at the heart of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur – the first of its kind outside of the United Kingdom.
Located at the lobby level of Sunway Resort, the Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill features iconic contemporary interiors, creating an inviting ambience complete with ﬂoor-to-ceiling windows frame views of Sunway Lagoon.
Join us on a trip to the magnificent restaurant through a series of probable scenarios:
Scenario #1: Your company successfully completed a six-month-long project (hurray!).
To celebrate this success, your leader decides to treat the team to a well-deserved meal at the Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill. Immediately upon arrival, you find yourself spellbound by the opulent interior design that is an amalgamation of Ramsay’s British heritage and the grandeur of Sunway Resort. Its robust furnishings of rich red and forest green are further accentuated by refined brass finishes, polished walnut hardwood flooring and 24-karat gold ceilings.
In the main dining room, monochrome portraits of figures such asThe Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger, the world-renowned Agent 007 from the James Bond series Sir Sean Connery as well as supermodels Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy line the walls – a homage to the British style icons. The space exudes British sophistication that originated from its original Mayfair setting.
Your boss, displayings a rare act of generosity, and declareddeclares, “Order whatever you like. You deserve it.” Pleased, you opt for the Seafood Platter as it would be a good option to share among your colleagues while refining your culinary palate. From fresh oysters, lobsters, prawns, crab, scallops and salmon sashimi to black caviar, it’s a seafood lover’s dream come true.
Scenario #2: You’re on a first date with the five-year crush of your dreams.
You’re dressed in a tailored navy suit, your hair immaculately styled in a perfect comb-over as your muskiest cologne – “A Successful Date” – lingers, marking your presence. Glistening chandeliers hang above you, and you’re surrounded by expensive golden furniture and accents. Everything feels sumptuous, befitting the occasion.
As you admire the decor, your date enters the room in her elegant dress. Before you know it, you’re sitting across from your gorgeous lady, leafing through the exquisite menu of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill, inspired by one of London’s most iconic restaurants, Savoy Grill.
You are eager to awaken your inner gourmet and taste the finest ingredients with a culinary flair created by the highly-skilled team trained by Gordon Ramsay himself – there’s nowhere you’d rather be at this moment.
Your date orders a Garden Salad while you decide on the Spiced Beef Tartare with Egg Yolk Confit for appetizers. The steak tartare looks almost too flawless to touch – an egg yolk confit propped seductively on the centre of a tenderloin fillet steak, enveloped by fresh herbs as garnish. Drizzled at the side, the gherkin gel brings out the most of the dish by creating a healthy balance of acidity, briny and mustardy – a perfect dance of flavours.
Scenario #3: It’s your best friend’s bachelorette night.
You surprise her with a trip to the Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill. Your group of girlfriends are donning matching sequin dresses and can’t wait to get the night started.
At the restaurant, you flirted with a few options before landing on the cult favourite, Ramsay’s internationally-acclaimed dish – the Beef Wellington, for sharing. Picture this: tender beef fillet steak coated with a layer of duxelles, wrapped in a delicate puff pastry baked to absolute goodness. Chef’s kiss.
You ladies decide to wind down with some cocktails from the bar. The masterly crafted menu introduces concoctions ranging from classic favourites to cocktails with Malaysian-inspired flavours and a host of premium wines and spirits.
You are also in the mood for dessert, as dinner isseldom complete without one! As expected, the Manjari Chocolate Tart is love-at-first-bite. Served with a piece of honeycomb and yoghurt sorbet to complement the flavours of the Madagascan chocolate, this dish satiates your sweet tooth with its crisp, fresh and acidic notes.
Regardless of the occasion, Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill can host you with a well-sought-after hotel dining experience. For those looking to have an intimate evening for tastings, social gatherings or private events, there are three types of private dining rooms available: 8 Mayfair, 10 Soho and 12 Chelsea – each bearing distinct themes to suit your ambience.
The opening of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill at the heart of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur marks the start of a new era of international epicurean excellence in Malaysia.
