Standing tall at 88-storeys with a height of 482 metres, the Petronas Twin Towers are certainly a sight to behold. KLCC park is a popular location for tourists to snap photos of the iconic landmark, but lately you’ll find that the crowd, including locals, are moving up and closer for a much better view. Sky dining has become increasingly popular over the recent years with a number of these restaurants popping up in the city centre, each of them offering delectable cuisine and amazing views.
Get up close and personal with the Twin Towers at these restaurants:
Marini’s on 57
Indulge in imported beef cuts, fresh seafood air-flown from Italy and artisan-made pastas. Marini’s fine dining Italian cuisine is just as spectacular as its views of the Twin Towers. Here, you are literally next to the towers as Marini’s on 57 is located on the 57th floor (no surprise) of Menara Petronas 3. There’s no obstruction to the view as the restaurant boasts floor to ceiling glass windows and if this isn’t enough, you can head out to the bar which features a semi-open air section. This is as intimately close as it gets!

Fuego, the latest addition to the famous Troika Sky Dining has taken a twist to their usual fine dining concept. The South American restaurant and bar features an al fresco setting, on a spacious balcony overlooking KL city and Twin Towers, making it one of the top locations to watch the sunset. Enjoy their popular variations of guacamole and flamed, grilled and smoked dishes. After all, Fuego is Spanish for fire!

Marble 8 Steakhouse & M8 Bar by Marini’s
Not a fan of heights? Doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good view. Marble 8 Steakhouse imports their beef from Australia and they arguably dish out the best steaks in Kuala Lumpur, at a premium price of course. The bungalow restaurant features indoor seating, so be sure to ask for a table with the Binjai Park view of the Petronas Twin Towers. After your meal, move outside and enjoy the breeze and a drink or two at M8 Bar’s garden seating.
Lorong Kuda, 50450 Kuala Lumpur
Located on the 38th floor of Grand Hyatt, THIRTY8 features an elaborate menu of different cuisines. The most popular are their sashimi platters, steaks and indulgent desserts. Their Signature Cake comes in a dome, served with dry ice to create fog and warm butterscotch sauce to drizzle over the cake! On top of this, the restaurant features a 360-degree panoramic view of the city and of course, the Twin Towers are in clear sight.
