One of the best local food I had in Kuala Lumpur. Do not miss this place during your stay in Mandarin Oriental even you have the Club room and service there.

So difficult to get halal peking duck in KL and I was delighted to be able to get it here, with the wraps and all. Kid friendly too. Love the dim sum here - you can get unique dim sums here.

They have quite good selections for buffet lunch. Or else, can go for Chinese Food. Love their dim sums a lot!!! For Durian lovers, don't miss to try their Durian Pancakes.

This is a top notch Chinese restaurant with excellent food and service. The prices are high, of course, but you can safely come here knowing that you will be well looked after.

I took my family to this restaurant for lunch. The staff were very accomodating to the children in a really upmarket venue located at the Mandarin Oriental. The restaurant is located next to the Twin Towers so would make an excellent stop before or after the trip. The food was delicious - make sure you try the steamed custard buns.

Could not fault the quality of the food and service . Possibly the best duck we have ever eaten (half duck starter) , and the prawns and scallops in the mains again were excellent. Will return here on our next visit .

Lai Po Heen is situated in the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental hotel in the center of Kuala Lumpur. It's one of the best if not the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Not so easy to get a table, think to book in advance. All that we ate, was great! Expensive! Suitable for a special occasion.
