Like the restaurant setting and the staff uniform which is elegant. I am surprise the see the many familiar staff that work in this restaurant for so, so many years.

The tim sum is good, food is good too. As such, the restaurant is pack especially during week end, festive celebration, etc.

During CNY, they will extend the seating tables to the walkway and do expect to wait for food for a long time. They tend to take more than what the kitchen can handle.

Thank Sawleng

Had my wedding dinner there – food was absolutely delicious, staff were accommodating. I go occasionally and every time, the food has always been great.

This restaurant serves good and fresh dim sum. We were there for lunch and have ordered some dim sum plus fried rice, half a duck, etc. The food quality and service was good. The downside of this restaurant is the food is a bit pricey

Oriental Pavillion is my favorite Chinese restaurant in Petaling Jaya, when I am prepared to spend a bit more. This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in PJ, offering many creative and delicious dishes, particularly seafood, soup and (lunch time), dim sum. Definitely value for money. But if you want an economic meal, don't come here!
Also, if you want to come on weekend, reservation is a must. This is a popular restaurant for wedding dinner

Selected the least expensive option from set menu 1. We had a private room set with 2 tables, 1 waitress and 1 captain throughout dinner. 2 Peking ducks arrived in pomp and after the oohs and aahs, the captain proceeded to slice up the birds. Crispy skin with mandarin pancakes, sweet sauce, cucumber sticks and spring onion with frilly ends, we promptly gobbled down the 1st course. Skinless birds were returned to the kitchen for a later re-apperance. Drumsticks were chopped and served up - juicy and ducky-licious. Next were individual bowls of soups - yummy to the last drop. Don't recall seeing any sharks fin as stated on the menu... The fish course was a deboned pomfret, its flesh cut into bite-size pieces and stir-fried with snow peas and chilli. Not too hot to bring out freshness of fish. The fish's skeleton was then deepfried, held up by a wooden skewer and stuck onto a radish base like the sail of a boat. Being chinese, everyone enjoyed the crunchy goodness of deepfried fish bones. Waste not, want not. Roasted crispy shatin chicken was next, looking like giant boxing chicken (chicken wing drummets coated in flour and deepfried). After biting in, we discovered each portion was actually half a mini bird. Tasty and meaty like a quail, unlike boney pigeons or sparrows on famine strikes. Even the youngest diner (5 yr old) had no complaints about eating a mini bird. In the dish's centre was steamed chicken meat rolled up like a sausage and sliced into coins - ok but not as impressive as its deepfried version.

Veggie dish was young spinach braised with salted egg yolk & century egg. Unlike the usual method, it was more thick gravy than superior stock. Thumbs up. The duck reappeared as sliced duck meat & bean sprouts tossed with fresh egg noodles. Somehow the earlier duck was tastier, perhaps cos' it was plain roast duck. Served with noodles, the meat had additional seasonings and kinda lost its ducky-ness. Dessert was a refreshing bowl of chilled longan and aloe vera pieces, and steamed cake (malai-koh).

20 of us, great food and camraderie plus 3 assortment of birthday cakes, all went home happy albeit a significant dent on the wallet. Apparently this place is known for good dim-sum - any excuse for a return visit.
