Chi Hao Dian (吃好点) Dim Sum Yum Cha Restaurant @ Kuchai Avenue, Kuchai Lama

After spotting a commercial on the monthly neighborhood bulletin, wifey suggested that we try out this newly opened dim sum joint in Kuchai Lama for breakfast, afterall what’s better than having a few baskets of hot dim sums and a pot of Chinese tea on a Sunday morning?

As we rolled out, we followed the map provided in the bulletin that mislead us to Kuchai Business Park, therefore we wasted almost 30 minutes turning in circles looking for this place. After almost giving up, we finally spotted it by luck as it’s hidden within a new residential/commercial centre called Kuchai Avenue. Wish they have more banners displayed!

Chi Hao Dian (吃好点) Dim Sum Yum Cha  operates from a corner unit which occupies at least 3 shoplots. One can’t miss this place upon entering Kuchai Avenue.

Tastefully renovated interior à la restaurants in China using mainly marble tables and stools. Female servers dressed in modern qipao (旗袍) with a twist were seen walking around taking orders and serving.

Another corner for those who prefer “cha lao” style yum cha that uses fully timber stools and tables. Please note that this joint operates only with ceiling fans and no air-conditioners.

Siew Mai (燒賣) @ RM 4.00 ~ Wrapped with succulent and tasty juicy pork meat. An 8/10!

BBQ Pork Bun (叉烧包) @ RM 3.60 ~ This moist and tender fluffy puff stuffed with juicy and not overly sweet roast meat is a must order. An 8/10!

Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken (糯米鸡) @ RM 4.00 ~ The texture is just nice as its glutinous rice is soft and moist. A big piece of mushroom, sliced Chinese sausages and fair amount of chicken meat can be found in this delicious bowl! An 8/10!

Shanghainese Meat Dumpling (上海小籠包) @ RM 6.50 ~ Only three pieces for the price, it’s on the high side compared to my family’s favourite DTF restaurant in the Gardens. The skin is rather thick but the taste is not too bad. Still, no one makes it like DTF! A 5/10.

Steamed HK Steamed Rice Sheet Rolls with Prawns (香港蝦肠粉) @ RM 5.00 ~ I must say this is a good dish with its big, crunchy prawns tucked in layers of rice noodles served with sambal chillies on the side. A 7/10!

Prawn Dumpling (蝦餃) ~ @ RM 4.00 ~ 
Again, the prawns here are big and juicy. Definitely a must try. A 8/10!

Pretty teapot with mismatched cups for us. It’s free flow for us for today. A good idea! Certainly impressed us.


Self service Chinese tea corner tucked at the far left of the outlet with flowery teapots and 5 different types of tea leaves in glass bowls of your choice, namely Xiang Pian, Du Shu Xiang, Lui Bao, Tie Guan Yin & Pu Er.(香片,賭術香,六寶,鐵觀音,普洱) A big pot of boiling hot water sat conspicuously at the side of the tea corner for customer’s convenience. The use of covers for the tea leaves is preferred to deter flies and other unwelcome invaders! Nevertheless, the tea corner is a good and refreshing idea.

Tastefully decorated walkway to the restrooms using steam baskets with miniature Chinese Cheong Sam and a good luminance of light over it. Nice!

The bill came to RM 34.20 inclusive of 5% + 5%. Wouldn’t say it’s cheap but definitely affordable and worth paying the extras for the ambiance and the good dim sums! We’ll come back for more!!
