Expat's View on the Latest Happening Places: Marini on 57th, Marble 8 and Strato Troika Sky Dining

December and January are festive months for my family. Christmas, New Year and my birthday celebration brought us to these fancy places in Kuala Lumpur.

I am glad that these new hip places are open and I purposely kept these places for this holiday season so that we can all check it out together as a family. My folks flew in from Manila and I wanted to show them some new places. They came to KL last year for the holidays and these new locations weren't open yet at that time. The new places didn't disappoint.

Sharing a picture summary. Hope it will help you make your own decision where to celebrate -- should you have a birthday, wedding anniversary or any special celebration coming up.

The perfect spot for a quick picture, Friendly staff helped to take the pic!

Birthday lunch celebration at Troika - Strato 

My happy birthday at Strato. Great view for pics. Lighting was great also due to all the clear windows and perfect sunlight!


My lamb order at Strato. Didn't have time to take pics of the rest of the food. Sorry!


Overall, it was a good visit.

Marini's on the 57th - bring your guests here for a drink at night if you want the superb views of the tower up close. They also have an outdoor seating which has fresh air, nice place to chat and definitely a nice spot to have a souvenir picture even with a camera phone!

Marble 8 - after-dinner drinks will bring you wonderful views of the tower from afar. They also have outdoor seats which is great. I love the fresh air, as compared to being hauled up inside an air-conditioned room.

Strato at Troika Sky Dining - great for family lunches. Italian food that can be shared. Attentive service. Also I think on weekend lunches it is not too busy -- so if you want a special celebration with a view, this can be the place.

Level 57 Menara 3 Petronas Tower KLCC, KL

Tip: Do not attempt to bring your kids to Marini's. There will be at least 3 changes of elevators, which is quite tedious if you have kids or baby strollers. This is adults-only affair in my view. Chairs and stools are all high. Great views of the twin tower up close. I have been there DAY and NIGHT time. Both won't disappoint. You can take great pics on the day time. While night time, the lighted-up view of the tower is superb. If you look up the tip of the tower at night you can see bats flying around it!

Tip: Very easy to get to this place. Just look for the main carpark entrance of Suria KLCC and you will see Marble 8 building already. Ample parking, love it. You can park at their open parking space easily. Preferably for adults only place. Great views of the twin towers from afar. Friendly Filipino staff.

Tip: easy to park at the basement carpark of Troika. If you have kids you can easily take elevators going up the lobby then change lift going up to the restaurants. They have 3 different concept restaurants at Troika.
