Had dinner with my colleagues recently since he insisted of trying every famous restaurants in KL. This restaurant serves no pork, but it is still non halal just because they have alcohol in their menus. We ordered various dishes like stir fried vegetables with abalone, seafood and tofu, fried scallop, and the most expensive dish of the night...the steamed grouper... More

I have been patronising this restaurant ever since its inception and I can say it is the best halal dim sum in town. The service is excellent as well and they have been maintaining it. Don't forget to order the durian desert pan cake. It will sum up the dining experience.

A trip to Kuala Lumpur should not forget at least one visit to this magnificent Restaurant. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous, the ambiance very elegant and food sublime. We started with caramelized jelly fish wrapped in a cone and placed, in the shape of an ice cream over elegantly carved circles of watermelon and canteloupe. Our main courses... More

We dined there recently and we ordered quite a number of dishes. From porridge, to fried carrot cake, to Siu mai, har Kao and fried noodles. We were a little disappointed as it tasted average. The standard of food can better. Service made up to our dining experience.

Dinner was for 4 pax and service was good as expected. The dish that was memorable on this occasion was their special rice dumpling with premium ingredients. The glutinous rice used was superior and carefully selected giving it a fine texture and a not overly starchy taste. We were informed that they were specially made (in daily limited quantity) as...
