KL Dim Sum

Reading some of the excellent posts here on the Cantonese character of local Chinese food in KL and typically disappointed with dim sum in Singapore, any recs for dim sum in KL?

Singapore does have some excellent dim sum spots - my personal faves are (1) Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck at the Paragon, (2) Crystal Jade Palace at Ngee Ann City, and (3) Taste Paradise at ION Orchard.

In Kuala Lumpur, my current personal favorite is Ming Ren Xuan at Avenue K:

You can also try these other ones in KL:

  1. Ming Room at Bangsar Shipping Centre, and its sister outlet, Tang Room at Starling Mall, Damansara Uptown.

  2. Elegant Inn also serves very good dim sum at lunch.

  3. La Sense at Damansara Kim.

  4. Li Yen at the Ritz-Carlton.

Surprisingly, for a city where its Chinese populace is mainly Cantonese, you do get some really awful, over-rated dim sum places - watch out for the Dolly Dim Sum chain.


Thanks, klyeoh. Not a fan of crystal jade or imperial treasure but will try Taste paradise on our next trip to Singapore.

I have seen other good reports on Ming Ren, La Sense and Elegant Inn so we’ll try those.
