Take a look at Wikipedia, the word bistro is defined as a small restaurant serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting, and it has a Parisian origin. This definition fits Rumours Bistro rather pretty well as it serves simple and tasty food which consists of regular western meals and a few local dishes. The prices are moderate too. As for the setting, this bistro may have a modest setting in Paris, but in Kota Kinabalu this restaurant setting is definitely above average. As rumours go, Rumours Bistro is the new place where KK Lites go to dine, chill and relaxed.
