Tamarind Springs is a stunning resort-styled restaurant specializing in Indo-Chinese fusion cuisine. It is the only restaurant in Malaysia selected as a member of Relais & Chateaux, recognized as one of the most celebrated names in the gastronomic world globally.
Sitting quietly at the forest’s edge, the setting is intimate and elegant, yet relaxed. Enter at a stunning brick walkway whimsically decorated with tea lights. Dine by candle light on airy balconies that overlook the beautifully lush setting.
Dining at Tamarind Springs is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, offering the majesty of the jungle on the outskirts of the city.
