Li Yen Dim Sum @ The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur

on Dec 5, 2011
My uncle and aunt are 'dim sum' fanatic I suppose because they really know where the good 'dim sum' restaurants are... 'Li Yen' is one of the restaurant famous for its 'dim sum' and I've been invited by them to celebrate my aunt and cousin joint birthday celebration... 

I will talk about the quality of their food later on but what I would like to talk about now is their service... To me, it seems like their service is not as famous as their 'dim sum' offering... Not to say bad but for a high class restaurant serving first class food, the service is left wanting!!!























After sampling their 'dim sum', I'm really sad to say that I'm a bit disappointed with it... Don't get me wrong because the foods are nice and all their ingredients are top notch... You get BIG prawns which are fresh and succulent in almost every dish as expected from a high class 'dim sum' restaurant... So why am I disappointed then??? Because I'm expecting it to blow me away with their offering but frankly speaking I don't get it... 

I consider the price to be really expensive (most of the dish range from RM9 to RM11) and I expect them to beat the hell out of all the other 'dim sum' restaurants especially 'Oriental Pavilion' located at 'Jaya 33'... But it is the other way round!!! 'Li Yen' got it's ass whoop BIG time by 'Oriental Pavilion'!!! In my opinion, 'Oriental Pavilion' serve some of the best 'dim sum' dish and their price is quite reasonable if compare to 'Li Yen'... 


Overall Rating - 3.2/5
