Starting from RM20 nett (for a two-course lunch) and RM50 nett (for a 3-course dinner), these often feature the restaurants’ signature or new dishes.

The cozy OPUS Bistro is located at serene Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar. It is one of the renowned Italian Restaurant in KL. It has been serving authentic Italian food (pork free) for about 11 years. After our dinner we managed to meet and have a quicj chat with Chef Ariff bin Mohd Nor who has been heading OPUS Bistro kitchen for the past 10 years. According to Chef Ariff, the must try and famous dish is their Roasted Cod with choice of white wine sauce or Lemon Caper Sauce.

So that evening we tasted the KLRW OPUS Bistro @ Bangkung the 3-course Lunch and Dinner Menu.

The 1st course is the soup / salad, we get to choose either Asparagus Soup or Ceasar Salad. I preferred the creamy and warm Asparagus Soup over the Ceasar Salad.  The Asparagus Soup it has more flavour and taste to it.

The main course with the choices of Linguine Zucchini & Prawn or Chicken Cacciatore or Grilled Minute Sirloin Steak with Black Pepper Sauce. Out of the 3 choices I like the Linguine Zucchini & Prawn come with a generous amount of fresh prawn, zhucchini and tomatoes. The Chicken Cacciatore taste quite good but the chicken breast meat is slightly tuff. I do not eat beef, however some say the Grilled Minute Sirloin Steak with Black Pepper Sauce is delicious, its tender with black pepper gravy.

For starter there is a choice of Salmon Roll with Rocket Salad or Mushroom Soup. The mushroom soup is cream, thick with mushroom flavours and texture. I would prefer the fresh Salmon Roll with Rocket Salad something more special and I like salmon.

The choice of main course is great. Here we have Sirloin Steak Mushroom Sauce or Aragosta Spaghetti or Grilled Seabass. I love the Grilled Seabass. The marination is perfect with the minty herbs sauce and served with greens (broccoli, potatoes and carrot).
