There’s a saying going around in the global F&B industry. “You can’t possibly miss Gordon Ramsay, no matter how hard you try.” That couldn’t be far from the truth — you’ll constantly find him berating amateur chefs into submission on reality TV or brooding on the covers of one of his many bestselling cookbooks. Now, the multi-Michelin starred chef has partnered Sunway Resort to launch his first restaurant in the country.
The Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill outpost in KL will be the concept’s first location outside of London, offering the same inviting atmosphere you’ll find in the restaurant’s original location in Mayfair. It will be an all-day dining affair, which includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and cocktails.
Diners can expect mainstays like steaks — all crafted from prime cuts of the finest meat that’s locally sourced and dry-aged in-house. Although the Malaysian menu hasn’t been released, fans are already looking forward to his signature beef wellington and sticky toffee pudding dessert that have earned rave reviews overseas.
For a chef who has appeared on TV shows called “The F Word” and “Hell’s Kitchen”, Ramsay’s onscreen, bad-boy personality doesn’t show in the restaurant he runs. The decor in this KL restaurant has been kept simple yet elegant, bolstered with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sweeping view of Sunway Lagoon. Private rooms, booths and family areas are also available for those who prefer a slightly more intimate dining experience.
Andy Wenlock, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants’ CEO, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with the Sunway Group as we expand our Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill concept into Malaysia, and very much look forward to sharing our wonderful menu and famed guest experience with local and international diners in 2021.”
The restaurant opening is part of Sunway Resort’s transformation plan, which has undergone facility upgrades and a facelift to enhance hotel guest experience. Upon reopening from April, the resort will take centre stage within the Sunway City integrated resort.
