Who doesn’t fancy dim sum? It is one of my favourite Chinese food to have at any time of the day. The Spring Garden is part of Tai Thong Group. They have a few restaurants which are serves pork-free dishes which is ideal for me. This is not my first visit here as I have been here on numerous occasions.
On this visit, I have ordered numerous dim sum items. To be honest, I can’t recall the names for each respective items. But it’s safe to say that I have tried nearly 90% of the dim sum menu.
So what do I think? Well I like the food here as it is not too oily. The ingredients are super fresh, especially when it comes to seafood such as prawns. The portion is decent and for some can be pretty big for some dishes but in all its satisfying.
The wait time for your food can be a little bit long when it is crowded or during weekend. But so far i have never had any problem as we normally place our dim sum orders in batches, so there’s always food on our table.
The price is a little bit higher than your typical dim sum restaurant. No issues for me since this is a Chinese restaurant in located KLCC, what do you expect? Will be returning soon! Yummm 🙂
How would I rate them? The atmosphere 4/5, Service 4/5, F&B 4/5.
Where at? Lot 413 & 414, 4th Floor Suria KLCC, 50088 Kuala Lumpur.
When we arrived at the front of the restaurant, we were told to order our food there, on the spot. I was like, what? Anyway, order we did.
Apparently the chicken rice balls are ONLY served in some combo set with normal rice. We ordered one whole chicken (yes, apparently the portion is meant for 6 adults!), Asam pedas fish,stir fried cabbage and drinks.
What did I think of the famous chicken? Well, it was okay… not as good as I thought it would be. Or maybe my expectations are too high. The chicken is tender and juicy but the taste is average. Find it to be lack of seasoning. The rice balls and the normal rice are just okay. The asam fish is quite good, it is fresh, cooked well (fish meat is tender) and the asam pedas gravy is nice.
Total damage for lunch was around RM90, which is okay for something that ‘famous’. I don’t think I will be going back there soon as it is not as impressive as I thought it would be. If you have never tried it before, perhaps it’s worth a try, but that’s all needed. The environment of the restaurant is clean and feels like a traditional Chinese house. The service is generally fast.
