Just stick with the Xiao Long Bao which is their signature dish! The other dishes were just OK. We had the green beans with minced beef, which was good. The pork chop with fried rice was a disappointment. The pork was very dry and overlooked. The green onion pancake was deep- fried, not pan... read more

We came to the Gurney Plaza and decided to have chinese food for lunch. We tried the szechuan prawns, string beans with minced beef, some vegetables with mushroom. The stir fried beans is especially very good. My dad said it's the best he had aver tasted. The vegetable with mushroom is very mild and delicious too. We had the flower... More

Situated in Gurney Plaza & a good place to partake of a typical Chinese meal for lunch whilst in the Plaza shopping. Apparently recently opened & a clean eatery with good service for a meal of reasonably priced food.

I ordered a soup and a range of dumplings. Wow the flavours were amazing! I was very impressed and the price was good... More

The noodles are good but the signature Dragon~I drink, was quite disappointing me. Its a totally 'Sugar~added' passionfruit drink, which you can easily find it from any grocery store. I make fresh fruit juice with my breakfast every morning so I can easily tell if it's Real or concentrated!

My fiancee and I have eaten at several Dragon restaurants in Malaysia (KL and Penang) over the past few years (I guess it is a chain). I am completely obsessed with the soup filled dumplings that I believe are called Shanghai dumplings. They are the most delicious thing on the planet! Everytime I go to Malaysia, I have to have...
