Loved the special glutinous rice dumpling

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... read more

Lai Po Heen serves the best Chinese Food in KL, especially their Peking Duck and Durian Dessert, which are both must haves if you are visiting them.

Excellent food, great service. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, smart or casual dining, not too formal, with very good attentive service. The food is to a very high standard, and everything we ordered was very tasty.

Quite a good selection of authentic Chinese dishes which was savoury and delectable. The presentation of the food was also appetising. At the end of the day, good service made the experience enjoyable.

Excellent service and attention to detail. Delicious food with sufficient menu selections to cater to most people. Kitchen behind glassed area provide a view for diners as chefs hustle and bustle to prepare the food which makes this not a typical Chinese Restaurant. Well done!

Haven't visited Lai Po Heen for many years. I long for a decent dim sum lunch there this time since it used to be a decent place for dim sum. I tried quite a lot of dim sum there this time, including their so called famous durian pancake (RM43). However, everything is not delicious at all. I have to say... More
