“Great atmosphere with authentic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Hakka is a must visit in KL. A huge bustling restaurant with good service, ideal for taking big groups of people from 10-20. Very nice dishes, though the menu is a little more complicated now, and plenty of Carlseberg beer girls on the prowl to fill up your glasses. BYO wine is available, and would suggest it as the wine list is shallow and drastically over priced.

The homemade Hakka noodles, sweet potato leaves, sichzuan prawns, vinegar ribs are all winners.

“Felt like home cooking of mom !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Was here with family as we were staying close at the Impiana KLCC. The first impression about the place was that it was massive and had outdoor and indoor dining. We went through the menu and as were are Hakka by clan we found a Soft Tofu and Mince Pork dish with Spring Onion exciting and sure enough it was exactly how my mom would make it at home. We also ordered Stewed Beef Brisket with Radish Steamed Pork on a bed of Preserved Vegetable which was delicious as well. We thoroughly enjoyed it and woud be back if we visit KL again. This place is highly recommended and I really felt nostalgic.

“Authentic hakka food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Hakka is one of the many chinese clan. Here in Kuala Lumpur Hakka restaurant was one of those pioneering restaurants serving hakka food. We like it because of the simplicity of the food akin to home cooking. Authentic dishes that are simply delicious with steam rice is the Mui Choy Kau Yoke ( pork slices simmered in preserved vegetables) The Hakka stuffed tau foo and egg palnt is good with chilli sauce. We find their stir fry bean sprouts and water cress so good and yummy. You can eat in Hakka everyday if you order simple food, it is like home cooking.

“Great place in KL for Chinese food in an open air restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Doesn't look much from the outside during the day but often these places are the best. Arrive at around 7pm for a good table under a fan, by 8 the place usually packed filled with some tourists but large numbers of local families enjoying a feast of all sorts of things. We've eaten here a few times and always enjoyed our meal. Huge selection, delicious food, cold drinks & efficient service, yes you pay for the nuts & hand towels but in the grand scene of things it's a few dollars at the most.
