Restaurant Kong Sai has a total of 6 outlets in Klang Valley. They specialize in chicken rice and Chinese food. I had the opportunity to try out their famous dishes at Bandar Mahkota Cheras outlet.
My friend and I went for lunch. The menu was simple and offered a good range of Chinese food. I ordered their famous steamed chicken, watercress soup, lettuce along with garlic and chives omelette.
We did not have to wait long for our food even though it was a little crowded at that point in time. To be frank, I did not have high expectation on the dishes especially the famous steam chicken. Anyway, I liked it. The chicken was fresh, tender, definitely juicy and appetizing. The chili sauce served here was really good. One could taste the right amount of garlic and the sauce was not too spicy or sweet with the right amount of acidity. I can safely say that not many restaurants can make this sauce so well. For me, the chili sauce played an important part in a steamed chicken dish.
The watercress soup was tasty too. It was boiled with some chicken pieces and had a good aroma. It tasted almost like home-cooked soup. Nowadays good soups are hard to find.
The lettuce had the right crunchiness and not oily. Lastly, we had omelette with chives and garlic. The omelet arrived looking very green. I was skeptical to try it at first but after a few bites, it was delicious. The crunchiness of chives worked very well in an omelet.
The food that we ordered was for two people however the portion here was generous enough to feed more than two. I would say that the food is good. It is an air-conditioned restaurant so it is comfortable to dine here with families or friends. You can find the restaurant very easily as it is located along one of the main streets in the area.
How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3.5/5, Service 4/5, F&B 4/5.
