When Privilege Restaurant and Bar first opened , my husband and I popped by but they were closed. We looked through the window and seeing the elegance, thought ‘special occasion’. An occasion to get dressed up and go on a ‘date’. Friends were already talking about this grand new addition to Langkawi dining and the exquisite menu, so we were keen to go.
I eventually took my husband to dinner at Privilege for the first time and a ‘special occasion’. Peter and his staff gave us the VIP treatment. Always attentive and little tasty treats magically appear between courses. Malaysian Fusion cuisine, all beautifully presented. I must say we did indeed feel very special
and very privileged!
But being treated like a VIP at Privilege is how everyone is treated. They want to ensure your satisfaction and return business. That may well be why they have had #1 spot on Trip Advisor from almost day one, and well deserved. Peter had been so busy running this culinary scene-stealer, that he only became aware of his #1 spot when one of his neighbors proudly announced it to him!
Privilege is well known for its Malaysian Fusion Cuisine and has Trip Advisors’ Certificate of Excellence two years running. It’s highly recommended to make reservations for dinner, but they do have happy hour and tapas easily available for walk ins. But the true Privilege dining experience is with a fabulous meal created by master Chef Anuar.
Privilege is closed on Sundays, but you may easily run into Peter at other restaurants in support of local commerce. That’s the kind of guy he is. And he’s not just the manager, he’s also the owner, but I had to drag that information out of him. His work ethic and treatment of staff, customers and friends have brought success and 5 Star dining to Langkawi. And it is indeed a privilege to know him.
