InterContinental KL to unveil renovated Tatsu by end-June

KUALA LUMPUR: The InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is poised to unveil its soon-to-be refurbished Japanese restaurant by end-June, said general manager Adam McDonald.

Tatsu, formerly known as Benkay, will be closed for renovations in April, he said on Wednesday, Mar 30.

According to earlier reports, the renovations for the 147-seat restaurant will cost around RM3 million.

This is part of the hotel's 18-month refurbishment, and other areas that will be upgraded are the duplex suites and the lobby.

The suites and lobby, which encompasses the concierge area and lounge will be ready by the end of this year, said McDonald.

He could not divulge the cost of the overall refurbishment as estimates were not available, he said.

The InterContinental Kuala Lumpur had opened its doors on Feb 1 this year.

The five-star establishment along Jalan Ampang was formerly known as Nikko Hotel.

It comprises 473 rooms and caters to a variety of guests despite its position as an international business hotel.
