Gatsby Mansion: Elegant European & Japanese dining at reasonable prices in Bukit Bintang
August 26, 2022
Gatsby Mansion is a gem in Bukit Bintang - this beautiful restaurant and bar combines a memorable setting of classic opulence with contemporary European and Japanese cuisine at a fair cost. You'll even find omakase dinners that start from RM228 per person.
The chandelier-lit dining hall of Gatsby Mansion is a delight to explore, furnished with plush sofas and a piano, complete with woodwork that channels a wine cellar and wide windows that offer a look out on Sultan Ismail Road. It's a ravishing setting for an enchanting evening.
Soup is an alluring affair - the Carrot with Pumpkin is a comfortingly creamy concoction that comes alive with vegetarian-friendly pumpkin, sweet carrots and subtle garlic (RM28), while the Wild Mushroom is soulfully hot and hearty, thick with mushrooms, plus onions and herbs that enhance the earthiness of this ensemble, tinged with white truffle (RM28).
Many of Gatsby Mansion's creations weave together Japanese ingredients with European inflections. For a graceful, gorgeous main course, go for the Soba with Uni (RM98), alluringly assembled with uni, tobiko, katsuobushi, yakinori kizami and caviar.
The Nama Scallops (RM138) harmoniously bring together the sea's plump, succulently seared molluscs with tantalisingly earthy truffle wild fungus crème, sliced summer truffles and micro greens, plus Parmigiano crisps for salty textural contrast.
Gindara Teriyaki (RM168) sounds conventional, but Gatsby Mansion puts a special spin on this familiar Japanese fish dish with uni soy sauce that blends the sweetness of sea urchin with umami, rounded out with pumpkin confit, baby spinach and caviar.
Red meat done right: Gatsby Mansion's Lamb Loin (RM178) is pure protein perfection, with lamb loin marinated with an upliftingly zesty tang, partnered with ratatouille, truffle crushed Idaho potatoes and rosemary jus, worthy to serve at a modern Parisian brasserie.
The Chocolate Indulgence (RM28) lives up to its name, bringing a sumptuous conclusion to dinner, sending guests out on a decadent high.
After dinner, guests can move on to Gatsby Mansion's plush lounge to experience a comprehensive range of wines, Champagne, whisky, gin, tequila, vodka and much more.
Nightly live entertainment kicks off at 9:30pm - on Wednesdays, Maico & The BB Band seizes the spotlight with tuneful tributes, taking requests for customers' favourite hits.
