Hee Lai Ton Restaurant @Shaw Parade, Pudu

My experience with dim sum in KL is very shallow because for me places like Dragon-I, Canton-I, Crystal Jade Restaurant and Din Tai Fung are very disappointing in terms of the quality vs the price. So with my dearest sister's mum help, I able to get a tip on a great place for a dim sum! The place is called Hee Lai Ton Restaurant which is located at Shaw Parade, Pudu.


I visited this restaurant once during the day my sister's 21st birthday. She is really a spoiled kid. I do not even have a 21st birthday celebration in a restaurant like this. Hopefully she will treasure her mum's effort.

So this is the restaurant details!
This restaurant is not somewhat very grand if you want to have an unforgettable wedding dinner here. However, their food is definitely one of the best. So up to you to decide whether you prefer a luxury wedding dinner location or delicious food. 
My sister seems like forgetting she is already over 21. Still playing around with sauce and ketchup but quite creative thou. =)
Stop playing and faster order the food! We are all very hungry already.
Scallop Chee Cheong Fun @RM7.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is normal to have prawn chee cheong fun or char siu chee cheong fun. But scallop chee cheong fun is extremely interesting too! But inside only got 10 scallops. 

Fried Prawn Wanton with Red Wine Soup @RM5.80++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5

Steamed Pastries in Shanghai Style with Superior Soup @RM5.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Usually when Xiao Long Bao like this, their soup will be quite salty. But this one is not which somehow makes it lack of taste.

Steamed Dumplings with Fish Roe @RM6.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The most basic for a Dim Sum shop to categorized as delicious is to make a good Siew Mai. So this restaurant does it very well.

Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf @RM5.30++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Even my mui's mom said this is nice means it is really nice. A lot of flavor inside which makes this sticky rice not an ordinary one that we used to have.

Sang Mee Seafood @RM15.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5

I really highly recommend this restaurant for not just their ala-carte meal but also their Dim Sum too. Wi-fi is available as well! Parking is ample inside this building.

Ambiance: 4/5
Service: 4/5

Will I Revisit?: Yes!
