Located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur city center, a modern Malaysian restaurant weaving generational recipes, a delightful space and warm hospitality into a finer dining experience.
selamat datang, welcome.
One of Malaysia’s most endearing and unique experience is our “open houses” during the festive seasons. It is a celebration of welcoming family, friends and sometimes even strangers to our homes to partake in the festivities over food and drinks. Special dishes are prepared, the house is dressed up for the occasion and we extend our warm hospitality welcoming guests to our homes. It is this unique Malaysian tradition that we bring to OpenHouse.
Our kitchen have rediscovered traditional recipes, and royal household recipes to create modern Malaysian cuisine. Recipes that have been passed down through generations, and respectfully renewed for today. We have also foraged our rainforest for jungle produce. With a multi-cultural history, rich biodiversity and natural hospitality, OpenHouse weaves a magical modern Malaysian dining experience at the heart of Kuala Lumpur just below the Petronas Twin Towers.

One restaurant is taking this to the next level by travelling further back in time to bring back long-lost generational recipes that are really hard to get these days; even in a typical household… A quick glance of the menu takes you back to childhood memories and growing up in Malaysia – the whiff of spices and fragrance of aromatics wafting from your grandmother’s open kitchen instantly comes to mind.
OpenHouse's elegance radiates through rooms brightened by a blend of classical Malaysian inspirations, such as Peranakan themes, with contemporary urbanity. But its true beauty rests in the work of chefs Huzaidi and Yusaini, who've scoured the country for recipes that reflect our roots, paying tribute to everything from pais to pongteh, serunding to sambal, from a modern vantage point that shines a light on what the future of local cuisine might look like.
With a wealth of wonderful street food, diverse cuisines and rich culinary culture, why is it that we are always stumped when we have to find an elegant restaurant that serves authentic local food? I don’t know about you, but apart from seafood restaurants and hawker stalls, I have not had much choice when it came to entertaining friends (particularly guests from abroad) who wanted to enjoy Malaysian food in stylish comfort.
So, after a decade and a half, I am delighted (and relieved) that we now have one more place in town to show off Malaysia’s culinary wealth to the rest of the world.
Andrew Wong, one of the owners of the Kuala Lumpur restaurant OpenHouse, believes that “the sudden renewed interest in Malay cuisine is fragile because it is a rediscovery”.
His restaurant, located in the Suria KLCC mall, keeps the authenticity of each dish, and balances it with subtle modern touches.
Wong sent his kitchen team back to their respective kampongs (villages), and asked them to bring back recipes of the dishes they remember. “They come from different states of the Peninsular and Borneo, and we fanned them out,” Wong says. “They cooked for their mothers and grandmothers, getting hints and lessons on how the dishes should be prepared.”
