Best Dim Sum Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

1. Lai Ching Yuen


One of the highlights at Lai Ching Yuen is the daily dim sum made live in the open kitchen led by chef Thye Yoon Kong. Here you can see exactly how the dim sum is put together and it’s cooked fresh to order. His specialities include crab meat dumplings with superior broth topped with shark’s fin and steamed buns with sliced clams. The fun at Lai Ching Yuen is in watching chef Kong deftly prepare the dim sum before it makes its way over to your table.

3. Li Yen


Of the many awards it has managed to tuck under its belt, Li Yen‘s most notable achievement is the Five Star Diamond Award for consecutive years. With its beautiful setting combined with the taste and aroma of delicious Cantonese cuisine, this spot is a favourite among KL dim sum connoisseurs. Innovative is the word that comes to mind with their dim sum selections. They recently had a promotion for tea-infused dim sum with creations such as a chrysanthemum bean curd puff or a longing sesame sandwich with shrimp dumpling. Dim sum here is served from 12pm – 2:30pm from Monday to Saturday and 10:30am – 2:30pm on Sundays and public holidays.
