Casbah, Mandarin Oriental

Dining reaches new heights at Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur with Casbah, a contemporary Arabesque lounge that opened in December 2010.
Casbah, which literally translates to “Castle or Palace”, complements the adjacent Sultan Lounge.

Upbeat DJ lounge music with exotic Arabian sounds and rhythms adds to chill out atmosphere until the early hours
Casbah features modern interpretations of a stylish and distinctive lounge concept steeped in the traditions of the Orient. Its opulent decor, comfortable sofas and soft mood lighting provides an ideal place to enjoy an informal soiree, to socialise and to escape from the frenzy of urban life.
Designed by award winning interior design company, the SWOT Design Group, this opulent and comfortable venue is reminiscent of a modern Arabian lounge. Casbah is the perfect place in which to relax with friends (while fantasizing you are Aladdin… with a magic lamp to rub on hoping for a genie to appear before you)
You may also opt to dine in the ‘private’ room for more privacy and belly dancing with your friends :D
Look at how happy the little Arabian Prince is :P

This awesome bartender has great skills! I can just sit there the whole night watching him! ^^
Candy Floss… and some Vodka later… resulting in melted candy floss in cocktail! Totally cool!

Food that was served to us

Casbah’s menu is specially designed to provide options to share, try and experience various dishes as opposed to the traditional starters or main courses.

Casbah serves an extensive menu featuring mezze and tapas from the Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa and Spain

Innovative dining concept
Simply delicious..
