Had dim sum lunch here with mom and the lunch really dragged on and on. This spoilt whatever was served and i wish it could have been a nicer experience. Staff and kitchen way too slow. Not keen to be back.

We ordered a few dim sum as well as chicken congee. The congee was by far the best congee I have ever had!! The congee... More

We had the dim sum lunch and really enjoyed it. The dishes are all delicious and very high quality. The service was excellent no waiting time at all between servings as expected in top end Chinese restaurants. Would highly recommend!

Sunday dinner with my friends, a bit far from what another reviewed. The most disappointed dish was scallop souteed with asparagus. Reasonably large portion of the scallop was served, presented ordinarily. As soon as I got it to my mouth, my expectation was betrayed.I had a feel of frozen scallop that was unsuccessfully unfrozen. Floor service was good and I... More

The restaurant is part of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel but don't be put off by that. Yes, in KL terms it's pretty expensive but we found it to be a delightful high class experience. Went for set menus - we chose differently & they coped with that - and we found the whole experience, the quality and range of food,... More

One of the best local food I had in Kuala Lumpur. Do not miss this place during your stay in Mandarin Oriental even you have the Club room and service there.

So difficult to get halal peking duck in KL and I was delighted to be able to get it here, with the wraps and all. Kid friendly too. Love the dim sum here - you can get unique dim sums here.

This is a top notch Chinese restaurant with excellent food and service. The prices are high, of course, but you can safely come here knowing that you will be well looked after.
