Great dumpling and great value

dined on Sat, 30 Jun 2018

My partner and I returned to this restaurant after about 8 years and the quality is just as good! The service was impeccable and the food delicious. ur favourite than and now is the deep fried pork belly in honey and lemon. It is a spectacular dish - not very sweet at all but absolutely beautiful (albeit a bit expensive at $21.80). The satay chicken sticks were very nice as were the dumplings. Like most Asian restaurants, the steamed rice was gluey but it did its job of soaking up the magnificent honey lemon sauce! This is an excellent restaurant with an extensive restaurant and beautiful food.

Great find in Lankelly Place laneway - authentic Malaysian home cooking - very tasty - good serving sizes, tasty rotti and yummy asian deserts. Laminated tables and byo all add to charm with friendly and attentive service - we will be back.

Chef Irene is an WONDERFUL chef. Her brother Jimmy is a great host. Together, they are formidable. There are not many Malaysian Food that truly reminded of the food there. Irene is one of the rarity that able to achieve that - at a reasonable price!! Previously when we were there, we asked her not to put pepper, chillis and no other spices. It's OUR own fault and did not enjoy my meal. But this time, we just let Irene do what she does - amazing!!! Must also try try their Rose from Provance - great value!!!

Malaysian food which was passable - hits the spot when you're craving, but not the best representation of the cuisine sadly.

About KL Kitchen

Under the Hibiscus This is a classic little Kuala Lumpuran eatery. If you have ever been to Kuala Lumpur, you’ll recognise the kind of place this is. There are hundreds of them in that grand old city. You’ll find this one in the relatively quiet (quiet for King’s Cross) little restaurant precinct around Llankelly Place. Just look for the sign with the hibiscus flower. Immaculately clean, the decor inside has a sleek but cosy, modern Malaysian tone. There is also a lovely alfresco area where you can watch the passing denizens of King’s Cross go about their daily doings. The contemporary Malaysian cuisine is beautifully prepared and presented by friendly, helpful wait-persons who will probably be children of the cook. The menu begins with a great variety of Dim Sum style steamed dumplings. Aficionados of the steamed dumpling won’t be disappointed here. There is also a great range of classic Malaysian and Chinese cuisine all cooked by "Mama" in the kitchen at the back. Best dish: Mongolian Spiced Lamb.
