I have been a frequent diner at Luk Yew Tea House over the past 9 years. Reading some of the comments posted here, I decided to perhaps write my unbiased opinion of this eatery.

Good location, quiet respite from shopping and traffic. Ordered a few dishes off the menu - good radish cake and prawn dumpling. Asahi beer on tap - cold. Service was attentive as not many people dining. Can dine inside the restaurant or outside in the food court area (all inside and undercover). Good lunch spot.

During our trips to KL, we will have lunch at Luk Yu right after check-in. Over the last 10 years, we have observed that the standard of the food there is dropping. The same items on the menu do not taste as good as before unlike Jake's Charbroiled Steaks (also in Starhill Gallery) which has consistently maintained its high standard.... More

A highly recommended place but my first time was not a nice experience. We booked a table almost 2 weeks ahead and on that day our tables were not ready and had in fact been given away. Service was also slow, really slow. However, the saving grace was the food. Food was excellent. Do work on the table service, please.

We were there for a late lunch. The dim sums were not the finest I have had but the atmosphere, the service made it a good place for a family outing. It was reasonably priced as compared to similar establishments.

Dim sum galore. All your usual fav. including chee cheong fan (hong kong style). Besides that...a whole list of soups, poulyry meat including lamb (grilled); noodles; fried rice. My family will order the carrot cake; braised lamb; grill chicken; yong char fried rice and some dim sums. A must at the end. ..durian pancake. .!

I've been here several times on trips to KL - the location is great, food is nice, service is strong. 20% off if you pay with CIMB! Recommended.

i love the food here but the management seriously needs to hire more waiting n kitchen staff to cope with the peak hour crowd. either that or reconfigure their kitchen system. some of our food ordered not served at the same time, forgot one order, some dishes took longer than usual to arrive. i will think twice the next time...
