Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant KL Imbi - Traditional Style Dim Sum Dishes

There are not many Chinese restaurants in KL Golden Triangle that serve traditional Dim Sum. One such restaurant is the Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant located at along Kampung Pandan (next to TREC KL) with ample parking place. Founded in 1999, this restaurant has been around for more than 17 years started off from Jalan Imbi, building a reputation for its' delectable and delicious spread of Chinese dishes with live seafood where you can pick and choose the freshest seafood to be served.

Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant offer diners with an option of open dining and private function that has a banquet ballroom that can cater up to 2000 pax per function.

Our review for today is the Dim Sum selection. Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant offers dim sum recipe originating from both northern and southern regions of China, local specials and the Chef's own creations that can satisfy most Dim Sum aficionados.

As usual, for all of us, we started with the Steam Dim Sum selection. Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant offers an ala-carte Dim Sum Menu of more than 30 dishes which you can order. Upon an order being made; the server will serve you piping hot Dim Sum to your table. The first to arrive on the table is the Crystal Prawn Dumpling (RM 8.00).

followed by the Steamed Fish Paste (RM 6.50).

the Steamed Pork Ribs With Black Beans Sauce (RM 7.00)

Beancurd Rolls

the special made Shanghai Xiao Long Bao (RM 8.50).

and the Steamed Rice Roll With BBQ Pork (RM 8.50) to end our Steam Dim Sum selection.

Next section is the Fried & Baked Dim Sum which the first was the Deep Fried Special Prawn Roll
(RM 8.50) which came with a special dipping sauce.

Followed by the Crispy Golden Bag (RM 8.50)

Special Crispy Yam Puff (RM 7.00)

Deep Fried Carrot Cake (RM 7.50) topped with meat floss; a unique twist on this dish.

Crispy Cheese Prawn Roll (RM 8.50)

and the Deep Fried Prawn Roll With Golden Sauce (RM8.50) to end this Dim Sum section.

We decided to venture to try out some of the signature dishes that are offered by Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant; one of which is the Curry Grouper (RM12 Per 100gm). According to the manager, you can choose the type of fish or part of the fish (eg Fish Head For Curry and the fish body for steam) for this Curry. We were amazed at the first taste of this curry which was served with an assortment of condiment which includes; the brinjal, long beans, tofu puffs (tofu pok), ladies fingers, and tomatoes. Although we were already quite full from the Dim Sum selection; the curry sauce was so good that we cannot let the sauce goes to waste. We just had to order white rice which needless to say was the perfect way to savour delicious curries.

If you still have some stomach space, you can also order the special Roasted Duck (RM 48.00) - promotion price which was roasted to have a crispy skin with a nice meat texture. 

Although serving traditional Dim Sum, the desserts served at Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant begs to differ as the Dim Sum Chef has infused some western eastern fusion dessert which caught us a little surprised. The first desserts are the Sweet & Sour Jelly With Lime Sorbet (RM 8.00), this was the all round favourite; as it has a sweet, sourish and refreshing taste that aid our digestion from the overwhelming dishes that we had earlier.

Next, we had the Special Pomelo Sago Cream (RM 10.00)

followed by the Special Honeydew Sago Cream (RM 8.00)

and lastly the Tropical Mango Pudding (RM 10.00).

The Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant with banqueting facilities can host your next private function; if you are planning to get married; you can also call them for the latest Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant wedding package.
