Popular British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is set to open his first restaurant in Malaysia this year.

The multi-Michelin starred chef's first Malaysian restaurant is scheduled to open in June at Sunway Resort in Selangor.

"For the first time outside of the original Mayfair outlet, Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill will open with a varied all-day menu offering everything from snacks and light bites, to Gordon Ramsay’s signature dishes such as Beef Wellington and Sticky Toffee Pudding," said Sunway Resort on its website.

The all-day dining restaurant will be located at the lobby level of Sunway Resort and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the lagoon.

His culinary endeavours aside, Ramsay is perhaps best known as a television personality with shows such as Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell and MasterChef US.

Malaysians have responded positively to news of the opening on Sunway Resort's social media, with many alluding to his fiery temper on cooking shows.

"Can we have Hell's Kitchen Malaysia? Would be fun to watch that live," said Sean Ong.

"It would be nice if Gordon could come and grace the opening, and learn a couple of local swear words as well," said Elder Cullen Joseph.

Many others commented that they would like to try Ramsay's "Idiot Sandwich".

Idiot Sandwich here refers to a scene from the Hell's Cafeteria parody skit that appeared in The Late Late Show with James Cordon in 2015.

In the scene, Ramsay held talk-show host Julie Chen's head between two slices of bread while yelling at her.

Ramsay has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe.

The restaurant in Malaysia is already accepting bookings.
