“Modern take on malay food”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us by hotel staff and we were glad we took their advice. The large menu left us spoiled for choice as did the extensive and well priced wine and cocktail list. Service is far superior to other restaurants on this charming little island, we met the owner who seems very hands on so maybe that's why! The nyonya platter to start with a slipper lobster wonton, mackerel otak otak and kueh pie tee were all delicious as was my main course of spicy prawns. Complimentary palate cleansing sorbet is served between courses adding to the fine dining feel. Well worth a visit if you want to try a fresh, modern approach to Malay food

“Best Modern Malaysian Restaurant”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

After having some bad experience in Casa Del Mar, Privilege Restaurant is a breath of fresh air. Excellence at its best. Peter Ting is the hostess with the mostest and the best kitchen and floor crew. Harmony in motion. Thank you for giving us the pleasure of Malaysian delicacy under one roof.

“One of the claasier restaurants in Pantai Kok ,great food, we thoroughly enjoyed”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Pantai Kok so bookings are essential. The food is very reasonable but as in most places in Malaysia be aware that wine can add several $$$ to the total bill... but worth it!

“Heavenly Dining”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

From the moment you enter Privilege you are surrounded by a soft beauty. The decor is very pleasing to the eye and gives you a promise of an interesting eating experience. Peter greets you most graciously , the staff make you feel welcome. The tables are well appointed and the menu full of iinteresting food selections. The staff are extremely well versed in the food offerings. There is a good selection of wines. Presentation of food is exquisite. The flavours wonderful. This is an absolute dining delight and a must for anyone visiting Langkawi. Great value for the money. The best restaurant on the island.

“fine dining...”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Fine dining at affordable prices, the food presentation was excellent as was the taste. This has to be one of the best restaurants in Langkawi. Tried the smoked banana ice cream after a few spoonfuls it grows on you.
