My husband, family and I had dinner at Oitom last week, a casual fine dining restaurant that promotes and supports the Sabah local produces together with the mixture of imported ingredients. I can see that both chefs Raphael and Juan are very passionate about cooking when they are explaining to us about the origin and the creation of their dishes. They serve a 9 course meal menu and this place is perfect for groups or a casual date night. Reservation through Facebook or website is needed. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience with Oitom.

When I think about fine dining, I never dreamed it would be in a non-hotel based restaurant! Upon entering oitom, which means black in sabahan native language... it feels like I’m entering the dark side and that made me a little more cautious but the lightings were superbly placed that it focuses on the cooking arena and the food that is served at your table. I absolutely loved it that they used local ingredients to produce fantastic dishes that brings out every essence of its flavours plus by sourcing locally it is helping the local farmers/suppliers. Two thumbs up for that! The best part about my experience at oitom was I get to learn about every dish that is served and the chefs Juan & Raphael (owner) were such a delight and insightful when answering even the simplest questions. If I had to choose one out of my 9 course meal, my favourite for the night would have to be the chocolate tart but I absolutely loved their take on the cracker with cheese dip! Looking forward to their next menu.. thanks for a lovely start to my 2020 and a great celebration of my birthday month! Also for being flexible in my diet requirements too. Note that it is a set menu and requires table reservation which can be made via their website and you’ll need to put a deposit to secure your reservation.

This is definitely a first for Sabah in terms of a fine dining experience. The fact that they focus on local ingredients is daring and much needed. Too many a time would a fine dining restaurant end up importing its whole produce from Europe/Australia, neglecting the wonders of local products. The restaurant ambience is classy. The open kitchen concept means that there is no where to hide. Service is good in general but the dinner did feel a bit rushed at times and there's room for improvement there. Food is well presented and decorative. We did not get to taste their regular menu, but for the food we had, it was imaginative and original. Seasoning and flavours could be more balanced and enhanced but overall it was a delicious meal. We will return one day to sample their normal menu. We hope this is the beginning of a truely Sabahan fine dining experience as this restaurant continues to explore the culinary offerings of the land and innovate their fine dining interpretation of local food.

Oitom's chef and team are ambitious and taking an immense risk by providing French influenced gastronomy service in KK. Especially, they are very bold for using a big portion of their produce from local ingredients (and mostly common) to serve their fine dining. A difficult feat to be creative with the flavours, that takes a very bold chef and team to be imaginative and execute. As someone who frequents fine dining, personally I foresee that with time, local understanding, support and tweaks in their service, Oitom will be top class, and a Local Gem that we will be proud of. (And already proud of to have in Sabah, given the talent and devotion we have from a local for gastronomic service) As a gastronomic enthusiast, a return to Oitom for their seasonal menu can be looked forward to. It was a delighting one, and very easy going. A thanks to Oitom's team for the experience. And a highly deservesl Focused Recognition for the dessert. A mind-blowing combination of flavours (attached photo).

Loved the ambience and the service. The staff made the effort to introduce to us the exclusive local ingredients that they worked hard to incorporate into all their dishes. Service was great, warm yet not overbearing. Food was lovely as to how they incorporated the local ingredients, and the mains especially were great.

Best culinary experience in Kota Kinabalu and probably one of my best one in Malaysia. I had an incredible experience dining at Oitom in Kota Kinabalu. The 12-course dinner was a culinary journey that left me speechless. The use of local and fresh ingredients truly elevated each dish, which was not only delicious but also beautifully presented. My senses were fully activated throughout the meal. I enjoyed the concept of having an illustration card for each dish, providing a great memory to take home. The pairing of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, was spot on. A special shoutout to Chef Raphael for his exceptional talent that deserves worldwide recognition. The restaurant's secretive location adds a touch of mystery to the whole experience. Congratulations to the entire team at Oitom for creating such a gem in Kota Kinabalu's culinary scene. I am already planning my next trip just to dine here again!

This place is unbelievable! From the moment you arrive you just know this is going to be a special night. We came here to celebrate my husband’s 50th and opted for the 12 courses and wine pairings. Wow! We loved the way each dish was presented by the chef who made it. Everything was beautifully presented, tasty and used locally sourced ingredients. Excellent wines- who knew a Bulgarian red wine could be so tasty. Each member of staff made us feel relaxed and well informed with a chilled vibe. If you are ever in KK and want a special night please go here- you will be amazed! Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience. Keep up the good work and keep the duck on the menu 😉

We were here for Valentine’s Day so it was not the usual menu. This is a very good restaurant in Kota Kinabalu for a special occasion, a treat or simply to try local produce eg seafood and plants, given a fresh interpretation. I loved the fact that local produce is used, eg corn from Kudat. The local slipper lobster and 7 star garoupa were exceptionally good tonight. They were also able to cater to my gluten-free request. The Michelin guide, please take note.

This was our first time. My wife looked for a place for us and our two kids. This place came up as very kid friendly. We did the tasting menu, and it was very much money well spent. Our kids really enjoyed the spaghetti and their drinks. My wife and I really enjoyed each dish along with our drinks. The staff was very friendly and kind to our kids which always goes far with us. Also the music played during our meal was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place, and next time we're in KK we'd definitely go back.
