- Classic Cantonese delicacies and dim sum specialties with an open kitchen.
A Lai Po Heen customer says this:
“Great to be back at The Mandarin. Consistently one of the best Chinese restaurants on the planet.
I’ve been visiting for many years but January was the first time my wife had experienced it. Great to watch the chef’s in full making their creations with multiple woks in action. Menu is excellent and all dishes are top drawer. Black cod is superb but the cubed beef tenderloin is melt in the mouth. I have it every time.
The service is superb, staff are welcoming and interested, and on this occasion a big thanks to Kai Chic Chan for making it a truly memorable evening.
It’s not very expensive at all by UK standards and wine list is excellent. I’d recommend it for lunch or dinner without question. Location of the hotel is ideal so one can follow dinner with some excellent bars nearby. The menu is extensive so well worth checking out beforehand via the Mandarin website.”
And another one says this:
“We love the food here. We were served by KC and Clayton. They were very friendly. You must try the Peking Duck. It’s a-two-course meal. You can choose how the duck is done for the second course. Either chopped, or with egg noodles, or fried with rice.”

Go to Siu Siu for char siew!
Their Guinness pork, claypot crab rice, and curry are among the best dishes served in Chinese restaurants in Malaysia.

Excellent service! Fast and smooth! Will definitely revisit the restaurant again.”
And another one says this:
“Food totally yummy, but the pricing quite expensive. parking lots available. Is a non-halal Chinese restaurant..it serves more to Hokkien cuisine”

10 Best Chinese Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur
Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur can be found just about everywhere, from five-star hotels and resorts, to unassuming streets and residential neighbourhoods. The unique appeal of Chinese food is that there are countless way of preparing a staple ingredient such as rice and noodles. For example, a serving of egg noodles can be served in a simple broth (pork noodle soup), stir-fried in soy sauce and prawns (char kuey teow), or drizzled in dark soya sauce and topped barbecued pork and dumplings (wanton mee).
Traditional Chinese food is mild in taste, but in Malaysia, flavours tend to be robust and spicy due to the heavy influence of Indian and Malay cooking techniques. Malaysia is also a predominantly Muslim nation, so there are restaurants that serve pork-free alternatives using chicken, beef, fish and venison. From decades-old hawker stalls and atmospheric kopitiams to award-winning restaurants and halal-friendly cafes, read on for our list of the most popular places in KL for Chinese food.
Lot 10 Hutong is an award-winning gourmet food hall that houses more than 20 popular vendors from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Macau. Located on the lower ground floor of Lot 10 mall, it has been designed to look like an old Beijing village with narrow ‘alleyways’ linking stalls. Instead of a central seating area, tables and chairs are placed around these stands. Notable dishes here include Kim Lian Kee’s hokkien mee (stir-fried noodles with thick soy sauce gravy), Porco Macau’s pork chop bun, and Honkee’s raw fish porridge. Prices are a little expensive by food hall standards (between RM10 and RM18 for a meal) but very worthwhile for those who aren’t keen to travel all over KL to enjoy food from these iconic hawker stalls.

Throughout the day, diners can enjoy a variety of typical Chinese tai chow (a variety of vegetable, meat, and seafood dishes) to be eaten with rice, but really it is the signature hokkien mee that draws in the crowd. Available from 17:00 onwards, the dish comprises generous portions of prawns, pork, squid, and lard fritters, and is served piping hot on a banana leaf-lined plate.

It has a traditional charm to it with atmospheric air-conditioned Chinese seafood restaurants, bright fluorescent restaurant signage lighting, miniature paper lanterns strung up in the trees, and plastic tables scattered on the streets. We suggest you grab a table somewhere in front of Restoran Dragon View at the top of the street and then walk along and order your dishes from the diverse range of hawkers. We recommend Restoran Wong Ah Wah’s fried oyster egg (thin and crispy omelette with oysters, coriander and chilli sauce) as well as the grilled chicken wings and roasted barbecue pork from Restoran Meng Kee.

The shop is over 50 years old and is located opposite Hong Leong Bank along Petaling Street. Locals are especially partial to the noodles served here as their texture is springy and flavoursome – the perfect combination for wan tan mee. Another uncommon garnishing for the noodles is braised chicken feet with mushrooms. Read More…

Yut Kee Restaurant
Jalan Dang Wangi
Yut Kee Restaurant started out along Jalan Dang Wangi in 1928, but after over 80 years in its original location, it sought a new home along Jalan Kamunting in 2014. The change in location has been a good move for the restaurant – it used to be packed to the gills, and now with more space, it is certainly turning over more tables than ever. The western and Chinese food served is a fantastic as ever – expect to encounter a menu of RM5.50++ char siew (barbecued pork) fried rice, roti bakar and pork buns (RM7.50++). A must try here is its Hainanese pork and chicken chops (RM10++) which comes with brown sauce boiled with carrot, peas and corn, as well as a side serving of potato wedges.

Opening Hours: Daily 1130 AM – 230 PM & 530 PM – 11 PM
5. Hau Kee – Cheras
This restaurant has physically grown in size over the years but is still packed to the brim most days. If you look around the other tables you will most probably spot a bucket on most tables; they are known for their Bucket Chicken which is essentially steamed village chicken with premium soy sauce, sesame oil and Chinese herbs that enhance the flavours of the chicken.
They also serve some pretty good seafood like Siong Tong Lala (clams in superior broth) and crabs in various style. Also recommended are their Marmite Pork Ribs and Lotus Root and Macadamia Nut Stir-Fry. This place may seem messy and noisy but it does have some really good food.
Address: 12, Jalan Kaskas 2, Taman Cheras , Kuala Lumpur 56100
Telephone: +603-9130 0113
Opening Hours: Daily 4 PM – 2 AM
6. Lala Chong – Kayu Ara
With a name like that, it is no surprise what they are famous for. Of course it is lala and their siong tong lala (Clams in superior broth) is truly well done. The clams are plump and juicy and the broth is to-die-for. Besides the lala, you should also try out their superior tofu soup which is a play on sharksfin soup but is instead filled with diced seafood and tofu. This dish is shark AND tummy friendly.
Seafood is definitely the strongpoint of this restaurant so don’t miss out on their butter crabs which has this luscious sauce which you will mop up with their crispy on the outside but soft on the inside mantau. This place used to be in Subang but despite the shift in venue, it has not loss the hordes of customers that flock to this place which is a sure sign of good food.
Address: Lot 13556, Jalan Cempaka , Kayu Ara , Petaling Jaya , 47400
Opening Hours: Daily 11 AM – 11 PM
7. Gold Dragon City – Paramount
This place is always brimming with customers and for many good reasons. They offer a myriad of Chinese dishes executed well. For this Chinese New Year, you might want to have their suckling pig which is crispy and tasty without being too fatty. They are also known for their roasted duck and seafood dishes.
For a sweet note to end your meal, their lotus paste pancake is crispy on the outside with a smooth filling. You will definitely want to make reservations for this place or risk being turned down.
Address: 16, Jalan 20/16a, Taman Paramount, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Telephone: +603-7876 4633
Opening Hours: Daily 12 PM – 10 PM
8. De Hunan – Kuchai Lama and Puchong
Now for something different this Chinese New Year, how about trying out some Hunan Food. Hunan is a province in China that is known for their spicy style of cooking, but don’t mistake it with the Szechuan style, which is usually oilier and peppercorn-heavy. Hunan food is dryer and heavier with a combination of fresh and dry chili that still packs a punch. The spiciness definitely starts from the get go as their choices of mini cold starters are a spicy introduction to what has to come.
Their Steam Fish with Spicy Sauce is highly recommended. You can opt for the whole fish (head and body) or fish slices. Both are good because the fish is always fresh and tender. Another must try is their stir fried cabbage with fried pork belly and chili. This vegetable dish is so sinfully good but it is not a healthy dish as you would expect of a vegetable dish. They serve really good pork, lamb and even frog leg dishes. I definitely recommended this place if you’re looking for something different.

9. Fong Lye – Imbi
From one end of the spectrum to another, Fong Lye is another restaurant that is unique and serves dishes that are lighter on the palette. They offer simple and delicious Taiwanese food. Many may know of the outlet in The Gardens or Sunway but what most of you may not know is that the Imbi and Hartamas (currently closed for renovation) outlets have slightly different menus. Here, they serve ala carte dishes instead of the usual set meal.
Famous dishes here are the Three Cup Chicken, Fried Fish Hotpot Soup, Braised Beef and the most popular yet most simple dish; the Taiwanese Sausage. All their dishes may be light but they’re full of flavour. The place is consistently packed so a reservation is a must if you don’t want to be waiting for a long time or even worse, not get seated.

10. Putien – 1-Utama, Sunway Pyramid and SS15 Courtyard
Staying on the same theme of non-Malaysian Chinese food offerings, Putien serves Heng Hwa dishes which originates from the Putian City from the coastal suburb of Fujian province, China. The flavours of their food is fresh and light, the ingredients are sourced from the best.
They are known for simple dishes with quality ingredients like Drunken Cockles, Iced Abalone, Tofu Soup, Fried Taro Cubes and Heng Hwa Fried Beehoon. The menu is limited but every item on it is well thought out and cooked well.

11. Village Roast Duck – Gardens, Pavilion and Bangsar Village
This place serves some really delicious roast duck. However, that isn’t the only thing that is good, the roast pork belly, barbeque pork and soy braised chicken are equally as good. Evenmore, they will debone everything before serving if you ask.
Other dishes worth mentioning is their salted egg yolk crispy fish skin,crispy shredded duck, braised salted fish pork belly claypot and their string beans fried with olive leaves. There is nothing fancy about the food here but they are yummy. They even provide complimentary soup and dessert (herbal jelly) to start and end your meal.

12. Purple Cane – Chinese Assembly Hall, Gardens, Shaw Parade and Paradigm Mall
Purple Cane stands apart from the rest of the Chinese restaurants because they use tea in all their recipes. With creativity, they found ways to infuse tea in all of their dishes, from appetizers to desserts.
Their best dishes are simple ones like the Fried Abalone Mushroom with dry chili and tea, Tea Smoked Duck, Chicken Bak Kut Teh, Lei Cha and of course you shouldn’t miss trying out the wide selection of tea. The dishes are light on the palate with a fragrant tea undertone.

Overseas is a chain restaurant having outlets all over Klang Valley however their most popular outlet is definitely the one in Imbi. The food there seems to be better than the rest. Famously known for their Barbeque Pork which has just the right ratio of lean meat to fat. The caramelization on the outside of the pork is just sheer bliss as it melts in your mouth. It is often sold out very early in the evening so please pre-order the barbeque pork.
Another dish often ordered during CNY is their Lap Mei Fan (waxed meat claypot rice) which comes with a generous selection of various cuts of waxed meat to be mixed in with the rice laced with a black sauce concoction. Don’t miss their extraordinary classic food that includes a few reinventions.

Telephone: 03 – 2144 9911
Opening Hours: Daily 1130 AM – 230 PM & 530 PM – 1030 PM
14. Loon Sing – Nilai
This restaurant is not exactly in Klang Valley but south of the city in Nilai town which is a 40 minute drive away. Despite the distance, many people still travel here for their Buddha Jump Over the Wall which is a decadent soup filled with abalone, sharksfin, fish maw, scallops and other good stuff. The price is more reasonable than those sold in KL which is the main attraction.
They have won several food awards. Their most famous dish is Dong Po Yuk (Braised Pork Belly) served with steamed mantau. If you are looking for decadence this CNY, this restaurant would be a good option.

Oh no, Lau – Pudu is a pretty large district – this place is literally at the other end of it from where you were staying – if you want to walk there, it’ll take 30 minutes or more. Wai Sek Kai is nearer to Sek Yuen, that historic Cantonese restaurant on Jalan Pudu:

AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)– Recently, the largest Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands uses the food delivery robot. The Sea Palace, just like the windmills, the wooden shoes and the tulips, was once taken as the synonym of the Netherlands. In October 1984, this 4-story giant and extravagant painted pleasure boat in the strong Chinese imperial style showed

| Chinatown, right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is an area that never sleeps and looks much more colorful and noisy than its modern and overly glamorous neighbors – KLCC and Bukit Bintang. Originally from Petaling Street, Chinatown, also known as ‘Chi Chong Kai’ (Starch Factory Street), has its historical roots in a tapioca flour company.Deeply entrenched in Eastern culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia.
Chinatown is also a paradise for famous sale patrons, and the point where you can find all kinds of goods, from Chinese medicinal herbs to artful imitations. At night, the main stage of Petaling Street turns into a lively and vibrant evening (night) market, filled with hundreds of booths offering all kinds of goods on the cheap, and the most pleasant moment is that you can decently bargain here, buying a good thing for a pittance, because local trade is a kind of special way of life.

Marketplace, Temples and the Secret Garden. Reviews – 2021
Chinatown (Chinatown) in Kuala Lumpur is a very colorful and atmospheric place. If you have already passed all the main attractions of Kuala Lumpur, then you definitely need to go to Chinatown. Set aside half a day for an independent walk – you will see crazy markets, interesting temples, colorful shops and galleries, “old-school” Chinese restaurants, street food and street art.
What to see in Chinatown in 2021? According to tourists, the most interesting points of Chinatown are Central Market, the crazy market on Petaling Street, several Chinese and Hindu temples, and, of course, atmospheric Chinese noodle shops and restaurants. And there is also a secret place that not all tourists know about, but we will tell you where to look for it.
Where is Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur and how to get there
Chinatown on Kuala Lumpur map
The easiest way to get to Chinatown is by subway LRT (pink line Kelana Jaya) to Pasar Seni station, or by Grab-taxi – choose the destination Central Market or Petaling street.If you are going to start your walk from the Central Market, then go left from the metro, past the TravelLodge hotel. After that, you will see the blue market building across the road, and on the right – the interlacing of the tubular arches of the Kasturi Walk gallery.
Council We Drove-We Know.
Pasar Seni Metro Station can also be reached from Pavilion Shopping Center by the free GoKL bus (purple line).
You can get to Chinatown directly from the KLIA airport – take the bus next to the Pudu Sentral Bus Terminal.
Central Market – Indoor Central Market in Chinatown
In Chinatown, there is not only a Chinese street market, but also an indoor shopping center called Central Market. If you walk down the street, look for a blue building. In this photo, the Central Market is located on the left:
Central Market (left) and Kasturi Walk in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur
Central Market is an ideal place to immerse yourself in the Chinese-Malay culture and easy shopping: in one place you can buy Malay batik and textiles, fashion accessories, clothing, souvenirs and various ethnic minorities …If you are thinking about what to bring your friends as a gift, then you are here.
Shopping in Central Market Kuala Lumpur
There is a food court on the second floor of the Central Market and downstairs a popular local chain cafe “Old Town White Coffee”.
- Cental Market is located on the map here >>
- Central Market opening hours: daily from 10-00 to 22-00
Petaling Street – the famous Chinese market in Kuala Lumpur
The famous shopping street Petaling street is the main tourist artery of Chinatown.It is here that counterfeit watches, bags and other “branded” things are sold. This is essentially a crazy Chinese street market that opens in the late afternoon. So you need to come here after lunch, when numerous merchants begin to display their “treasures”.
Entrance to the famous Petaling Street in Chinatown
The main gate at the beginning of Petaling Street gives a complete view of Chinatown – a slice of China where everything is. Note the glass canopy that covers the entire street – Petaling Street works even in rainy weather.From the main street, there are many cuffs to side lanes and shops. Sometimes the most interesting shops and shops are hidden there. Please be patient and study everything 🙂
Shopping at Petaling Street Market in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur
Going to buy a fashionable “Brightling” Chinese watch or other “super brand” items for ridiculous money? Then you definitely need to go to Petaling Street. If you decide to buy something, don’t forget to bargain!

The Secret Garden and Street Art Masterpieces in Chinatown
Bunn Choon Restaurant in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur
Bunn Choon Restaurant in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur is a fine example of British colonial architecture and also serves a good meal.
Council We Drove-We Know.
The most interesting thing is in the courtyard behind the restaurant – not all tourists know about it and often pass by.Be sure to take a look here, go under the arch. Kwai Chai Hong is a true secret garden in Chinatown with some of the finest street art in Kuala Lumpur that captures 1960s style.
Free admission. Works from 9 to 21.
Chinatown has many interesting corners
When walking around Chinatown, be sure to look into the adjacent courtyards – this is how you can find many pretty corners with wonderful street art – literally open-air art galleries and completely free.
Great Street Art in Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown
The wall art in the Chinese mi-mi-mi style is very reminiscent of street art in Georgetown, Penang and Malacca.
Where to eat deliciously in Chinatown
Walking around Petaling you can try all kinds of street snacks: fried chestnuts, all kinds of kebabs and pies, bean curd and desserts, fruit cuts, fresh juices. Gourmets have something to do here 🙂
Street Food in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur
If street food doesn’t appeal to you, try Cantonese food at one of the authentic Chinese restaurants.For example, in one of the oldest restaurants in Chinatown – Ho Kow Hainam Kopitiam.
One of the oldest restaurants in Chinatown – Ho Kow Hainam Kopitiam

It is believed that the sword has a special power to bless and protect a person if you touch it, and better to raise it. Some even believe that he has an inner strength that can magically bring good luck.
- Free admission. The best time to visit is in the morning. Firstly, there are fewer people, and secondly, you can look at people praying.

Chan She Shu Yuen Temple Museum
Association Temple Chan She Shu Yuen
This is one of the largest and oldest surviving Buddhist temples in Malaysia.Inside the main temple are columns with scenes of golden warriors fighting lions, dragons, and other mythical creatures. Since the architecture of the temple is extremely rare outside of China in such a well-preserved state, the Malaysian government has declared the building a protected monument of national importance.
Interestingly, this is not just a Buddhist temple, but a kind of club, an association of clans from South China – for people with the same surname, in this case “Chan” and includes “Tang” and “Chen”, whose names are written using the same and the same Chinese characters.This makes it a very large clan! The association helped new immigrants settle, find work and settle in Malaysia.
Chan She Shu Yuen Temple is not very popular with tourists, so sometimes you can wander here all alone. Nice place. Located here. The entrance is free.
Small Guan Yin Temple
Guan Yin Temple is at the end of Chinatown
The small and cozy Guan Yin Temple is located on the outskirts of Chinatown, on a hill next to the Maharajalela monorail station, here.People come here to see the three golden Chinese Buddhist statues inside and listen to beautiful prayers (from 12-30 to 13-45). When planning a route through Chinatown, you can put this place at the very end of the walk.
Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu Temple in Chinatown
Sri Mahamariamman (Sri Maha Mariamman) – Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur
Sri Mahamariamman (Sri Mahamariamman) – the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia is located on Jalan Tun H S Lee street – this is a street parallel to Petalingu.The 22-meter-high gate of this amusing structure is made up of countless multicolored sculptures of Hindu deities.
- Entrance to the temple is free, but there is a dress code (shoulders and knees must be covered, shoes must be removed before entering).
- Located here.
Chinatown is a great place to stay cheap in Kuala Lumpur
If your budget does not allow you to stay in one of the hotels overlooking the Petronas Towers, then the cheapest accommodation can be found around Petaling Street.There are very low prices for hotels and many hostels. It is easy to find a hostel for 10-15 euros, but comfort in such a hostel will not be enough. It is better to add a little and still choose a more comfortable hotel. From decent and inexpensive I can recommend the hotel with the fashionable name “The 5 Elements Hotel Chinatown”.
Hotel “5th Element” in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur
Nice rooms, friendly staff, the hotel has a good location – near the whole of Chinatown, as well as within walking distance of Pudu Sentral bus station and Pasar Seni metro station.Of the minuses: in the evening it is noisy around the hotel.
But what I liked the most is the stylish Mingle @ Chinatown Hostel – a very atmospheric place – cheap but quite comfortable for solo travelers. However, there are double rooms with their own bathroom. Therefore, it is no worse than a hotel, and the price is less than 10 euros per person!
Mingle Hostel @Chinatown
has a great rooftop bar. At the reception, staff can call a Grab taxi (the cheapest in town).
