Vasco’s, Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel

The great explorer Vasco de Gama is the inspiration for the name of Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel’s buffet restaurant, Vasco’s. The namesake’s devotion to traversing new territory is carried through both in design and cuisine in the all day dining concept.

Vasco’s BuffetMost people visit buffets for choice and unlimited helpings of food. Vasco’s however, is equally intriguing for its alluring design. A complete renovation has turned the space into a “modernist take on the urban park theme.” A vine-like trellis separates the restaurant from the lobby, allowing guests a sneak peek into the culinary playground.

The limbs of the silhouette draw the eye to a striking chandelier made of 100s of translucent tubes hanging from above. Wall windows and skylights fill the room with happy daylight, making it a cheery place for breakfast or lunch, while in the evening, these contemporary structures glow, morphing the scene into an equally impressive dinner experience.
