Visited this Restaurant branch in Pavillion in May.

Ordered their famaous dishes, Xiao Long Pao (very nice), Lai mee with black bean sauce (nice) and fried rice with prawns (nice) and Shrimp/Pork Shao-mai (Stick to their Xiao Long Pao)...

All in all... very yummy...

“Must try XLB!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

It is a up-market chinese restaurant famous for its Xiao Long Baos (XLB) and have many chain outlets throughout the world. It is a pleasure to dine in this restaurant and if you want to skip away the long queue try to go at odd hours. Service is quick and generally people finish thier meal quite fast for the next diners. I recommend its fried rice with pork cutlets and XLBs are a must try! Although it tucked away in a basement corner but it is always crowded during weekend. If you need a quick fix or a tea break I do not hesitate to head over to Din Tai Fung. Will keep coming back again and again and again...

“Excellent Quality Food well worth the wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

We had been referred to this restaurant by a friend, so made sure we got there on our visit to KL.

It is up on the 6th floor, down the end of the shopping centre. It was not listed in the directory, but the helpful concierge advised us where to go.

There was a queue of about 5 groups waiting out the front when we arrived. Upon enquiry the staff advised that the wait was about 20 minutes. As we had come a long way, we thought it was worth the wait. We were given a card with the menu so you can select what you want. With a few suggestions from the helpful staff we had decided what we wanted.

The preparation area is behind glass, so you can see the chefs cooking while you wait - this also helped as we asked the staff about some being made and ordered them.

The wait was not long. We were seated within 10 minutes and the wait for food was not long. The steamed dumplings were excellent, the quality of the food was impressive as was the flavours. We're spoilt in Melbourne for excellent dumpling places, so our expectations are high. We tried a variety of different dumplings and all were very different to what we were expecting. Beautifully prepared and presented.

Pricing was not expensive compared to other major cities around the world. We feed a family of 5 for about AUS$40

Highly recommend you take the time to get there if you are in KL. My wife also liked the shopping in the centre.
