Value for money. Ambience was nice and cosy. Staff was friendly and warm. Problem in getting one of the private rooms as they are fully booked.

Had a lovely meal here with my wife, food was so good that we ate here twice on our two-week stay in Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately, our second meal wasn't as good as our first. We ordered the same thing as I had a strong craving after tasting in the first time; duck in pancakes. The waiter obviously got confused and... More

the food is very good. The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor in the Mandarin Oriental hotel and the atmosphere is a bit cold as there is one big room where the tables are. The temperature in the restaurant is quite low (around 18 oC) so bring a jacket or a sweater.

Had a family dinner in the restaurant in a room. Food was excellent, service was very good and ambience was good as well. Presentation of food was good which shows the culinary art of the chef.

We went to this Mandarin Oriental Chinese restaurant for the last dinner of our KL stay: it was a good dinner with some good food, most notably Honey Peking Duck and Jasmine Smoked Chicken. The big let down, apart from the bill, was the level of service of the senior waiters and waitresses (as noted in other reviews): they appear... More

What a restaurant, what food, and what service. This is a really good restaurant, and the food is exceptionally good. I especially liked their sweet and sour dishes and their beef. Come to think of it everything was very good, and I would highly recommend you visit this restaurant to make your visit to KL complete. In one word PERFECTION.

I was recommended to this restaurant by a friend and going there was the best decision ever. My first visit was in April 2014 for lunch and i regretted not choosing the whole selection of dimsum. We had ordered the Beijing Duck (2 course, meat cooked with asparagus), claypot toufu, fried noodle with beef, siew mai and the chicken pastry.... More

I like the good quality of food served here and especially enjoyed the soup - healthy and nutrional ! Restaurant Manager (Pauline) makes a good host and look after the guests dining well. Lawrence always smiling and cheerful attitude is so welcoming.

This is my favorite place to have lunch in KL. The dim sum is superb. The surroundings are pleasant, and the service is excellent. We have two very young children. Our waiter Lawrence was fantastic with them. He has a very polite but natural style. I go as often as I can.
