Dim sum galore. All your usual fav. including chee cheong fan (hong kong style). Besides that...a whole list of soups, poulyry meat including lamb (grilled); noodles; fried rice. My family will order the carrot cake; braised lamb; grill chicken; yong char fried rice and some dim sums. A must at the end. ..durian pancake. .!

I've been here several times on trips to KL - the location is great, food is nice, service is strong. 20% off if you pay with CIMB! Recommended.

i love the food here but the management seriously needs to hire more waiting n kitchen staff to cope with the peak hour crowd. either that or reconfigure their kitchen system. some of our food ordered not served at the same time, forgot one order, some dishes took longer than usual to arrive. i will think twice the next time...

This is a lovely Chinese restaurant (or tea house) located inside Starhill Gallery at the back near the side street entrance. We had a very good Yum Cha lunch here -no trolleys (order off the menu). The dumplings were excellent and well priced for the quality and location. You can choose from a wide range of speciality Chinese teas, but... More

Not my first time. Of course some would say there are other better places for dim sum to which I would admit. However the reason I frequent this place is the authentic Chinese ambience apart from the speedy service on top of the good dim sum. Simply a place for quiet dim sum breakfast on a Sunday morning. Bliss.

Luk Yu Tea House is wonderful, and feels like it could be an oasis on a bustling street or equally at home alongside a pond. The menu is large, with a variety of small-plate and large-plate options. The food is very good, with rich, complex flavors. (We had the garoupa [grouper] with a variety of fruits, beef with special sauce,... More

We came for Newens (in starhill gallery) but that was deserted, looked posh and was everything but cosy. So we ended up at Luk Yu, that for a place in a shopping mall, did a really good job in creating an ambiance of its own. The staff was professional but a bit slow, and we didn't get one of the...

Very busy dim sum tea house so make sure you call to book for a table. And try to get a table inside where the ambience is very cozy and authentic. Great instagram opportunities. I really enjoyed the food, particularly the Salted Egg Prawn. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It is a little pricey but I think... More
