“Reliably high quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This restaurant moved about 18 months back to the Life Centre on Jalan Sultan Ismail, just round the cornere from the Thai Bar. We have lunch here fairly regularly at the weekend. Very good dim sum and an extensive main menu of the usual Chinese exotica, abalone, shark fin, geoduck. Never had a bad dish, always well prepared, fresh and tasty. Service is excellent with a staff who have been there as long as I can remember-so at least 7-8 years. Not expensive for the quality, all fish and seafood is fresh and you can select your victim if you so desire. Parking is free for customers.

“Absolutely great shumai and egg tart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Cant comment on their top items like the abalone and shark fin, but i thought their shumai topped with crab roe and their egg tart are simply outstanding. The rest of our food was good also like the ricesheet prawn and the black bean steamed pork ribs.

“Good chinese food reasonable priced for KLCC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch at the Life Cenre Branch in Jalan Sultan Ismail. Duck was perfect, crisp outside and tender inside with a touch of a sweet sauce. Deep fried mushrooms very good too. Never had sweet sour pork with caramelised straberries before and yes, they did taste good. Fried rice not too oily yet super tasty. Egg tarts finished a great meal. Hope to go back soon.

“Best dim sum place in KL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

My fav dim sum place for KL. just by paying a lil more, you get authentic Hong Kong dim sum that is simply divine. I cant bring myself to eat the street dim sum anymore. Juicy siu mai, fresh fresh har kou, tasty soup with "kun tong kao"... love everything!

Has moved to Lifecenter, KL
