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.

A Good Dim Sum Buffet Restaurant In Bukit Bintang @ Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur

Photo Source: Lai Ching Yuen Facebook
We are real fan of good Dim Sum and recently we went to Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur Bukit Bintang to taste the All You Can Eat Dim Buffet (Ala Carte) at RM78.00 Nett.

Not many five-star Hotel in Malaysia serves non-halal Dim Sum but according to Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant Dim Sum Chef Thye Yoon Kong; the flavours and taste will be very different and will not be in it's purest form which we totally agreed. Lai Ching Yuen is a famous Dim Sum restaurant with a long history of serving the traditional mainstream dish from the original Dim Sum recipe.

With the latest special promotion; if you truly love Dim Sum; this all you can eat offer will be very irresistible to miss out with more than 60 delectable Dim Sum in its menu; which we are not able to try every single dish.


For me; my all time favourite Dim Sum is from the steamed section in which we were served the Steamed Siew Mai with Fish Roe. When this Dim Sum reach the table, we were surprised with the generous topping of Fish Roe and needless to say, it was a superb start to our gastro Dim Sum lunch.


Next, we had the Steamed Spared Ribs With Yam and Garlic. With the additional Yam that is laid at the bottom of the dish, all the flavours of the sauce and spare ribs are totally absorbed into the Yam; which was a little wonder by itself.


After that, it was the fluffy Steamed Home Made Fishball.



The must eat traditional Steamed Prawn Dumplings


Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Pepper.


followed by the Steamed Beancurd Roll With Oyster Sauce.


Normally for turnip cake, we would normally eat the fried version, but here the Chef steamed it and topped with dried shrimp. As it was steamed, it has a softer texture and blended well with the dried shrimp and scallion topping .


The next Dim Sum dish was a specially dressed up; which is the Seafood Dumpling With Spinach. Love the springy prawn that was in the filling.


For veggie lovers, you might like to try out the Steamed Spinach Dumpling With Preserved Vegetable.


While for fans of Steamed Cake, there is the Traditional Steamed Cake aka Malay Kuih with slice Roasted Almond seed.


For those that love some spicy taste; can try out the Steamed Szechuan Wanton.


After the many Steamed Dim Sum dishes, we move on to taste the Deep Fried section which the first was the Deep Fried Beancurd Roll With Shrimp. We love this one as the beancurd roll has a very crispy texture, which literally crush in our mouth coupled with the fresh shrimp that has a bouncy texture.


Another dish from this section is the Pan Fried Bun With Vegetables and Pork. 


Next, we had the Pan Fried Pork Dumpling With Chives; from the first onset, this looks quite similar to a Gyoza.


and the last item from this section is the Wok Fried Turnip Cake which is fried with Chinese Sausage similar to the other Chinese Restaurant Dim Sum that I recently reviewed. 


Normally it is difficult to find Nian Gao after the Chinese New Year, but the Chef, here have specially made this for those that love Nian Gao which is pan fried with an egg batter.


As we move along to the next section which is Porridge, the first is the Porridge with Century Eggs and Lean Pork.


While the next one is the Porridge With Bonito Fish and Peanuts.

We had 2 dishes from the Steamed Rice Rolls section; the first of which is the Steamed Rice Rolls With Shrimp.


followed by the Steamed Rice Rolls With Preserved Vegetable. This is something new; as the taste of the preserved vegetable has a slightly salty taste which will test your taste-bud.


For Dessert, there is Chinese Pancake, Red Bean, Hot Barley but for me, I love the Chilled Sea Coconut as it was a very refreshing end to our lunch.


There is also an appetiser section which we did try out i.e. the Black Fungus and Cucumber In Special Dressing. This is served chilled with a slight hint of spicy taste coupled with the crunchy black fungus. A good start for the meal.


Or you can try out the Deep Fried Golden Enoki Mushroom for those that likes the crispy and fried starters.

The other section which you can try out is the Soup section, Main course and also the noodles section if you still have stomach rooms to be filled.

Overall, we find this Eat All You Can Dim Sum Buffet; a real-valued for money as the quality of the Dim Sum is good and as it is served ala-carte; you can really enjoy this delicious fare at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur.
