Had been at SDCC many times for meetings, but first time eating at China Treasures.
The only good thing about this place is the parking : spacious and free (come to think of it, that is because there are not many patrons).

The first impression we stepped into this restaurant was the poor service attitude of its staff.
The girl at the reception just told us blankly : "Do you have a reservation, if not, we cannot serve you!"
We look around into the restaurant, and found that of the 20 odd tables in the restaurant, less than 1/3 was actually occupied. We then ask to speak to the manager on duty, a man in his 30's came forward and looked at us sternly, saying their restaurant is fully booked, he then showed us less than 10 bookings on his list, the booking time mainly for 1200noon. ( It was 12.45pm when we stepped into the restaurant). We then enquired if we could take up one of the tables for the bookings that was "no show", it took him quite a while for him to tell us reluctantly to wait for a table at the waiting area. (Guess he must be doing us a great favour), there was not a single hint of smile on the face of any of the service staff in this restaurant, including the manager on duty.
We waited for a good quarter of an hour before being shown to our small table. He did not even bother to show us the menu or ask us to order food or drink while we were waiting - which is a normal practice in any good restaurant keen on businesses of their patrons.

Food on the menus were not spectacular , and prices were exorbitant - even higher than most gourmet Chinese restaurants in any 5 or 6 stars hotels in KL city- considering this place which is in a suburban area with no public transport and not attached to any hotel.
The price of a 2-piece dim sum is RM15++ (totally RM17.40 with tax and service charge) , a plate of fried rice/noodle is RM35++(SMALL) RM48++ (MEDIUM), most prices are much higher than that in a 5 star hotel restaurants in Bukit Bintang area.
The food was just average, not unpalatable but certainly not up to standard, and were just much more inferior compared to hotels such as JW Marriott and ShangrLa, for example.
Definitely will not eat here again, unless the food and especially service improve.
HR department here definitely is either sleeping or non-existent. Even off hotel restaurants like KImGary has 3x better service than this place, and the prices are about 3x less than here.
Will not recommend anyone to come here!

Went there to treat the kids for a Chinese meal, have been here twice before on office work.

Made a reservation and came and it's recommended if your doing it on a weekend, the service from the start was excellent.

Parking is a breeze by the way, it's the opposite turn to klgcc., the food was simply awesome, we loved every bit of it, will certainly be going there again, if you want dumplings and dim sum, it's got to be in the afternoon, they don't serve for dinner.

If you love Chinese food, this is well worth the visit, it's not cheap, but it's not very expensive either.

Average Chinese. No compelling reason to make the trip out here except for the ample parking.
