Dining @ Luk Yu Tea House, Starhill Gallery

Couple of weeks back, I'd the opportunity to dine at Luk Yu Tea House, a restaurant in Starhill Gallery. Both the Restaurant and Stahill Gallery are own by one of Malaysia's conglomerate, YTL Group Bhd.

Located on the ground floor, the entire level goes by the name of FEAST, This is where all the Food and Beverage outlets are located. If you are stepping into Starhill Gallery for the very first time, you will notice that every single floor is given a very unique name and when you step into any lift, you will not see any numbers on the button but those unique names assigned to each floor.

Anyway, I shall share my experience dining at this luxurious restaurant.

Arrived at late in the morning together with my relatives from Australia.

The entrance to Luk Yu Tea House

The restaurant adopt an open concept design, allowing passerby to get a glimpse of what is being served.

The furniture and fittings are a combination of traditional and modern age.

Stained Glass are used to enhance the designed

Even the kitchen has an open concept, this is especially good for diners who are concern about how the food are being prepared.

The kitchen is very clean and well equipped.

I simply love the lines of teapot carefully arranged.

These clay dining ware are fully imported with fish motif, very common for the chinese.

The cover of the Menu is made of fine wood with the restaurant name engrave on it.

On the inside, its looks like typical menu that you can get at any restaurant.

They serve a range of tea ranging for medium class to premium tea that cost up tm RM1050.

The appetiser, taste alittle line abolone, not sure what it is.

Hokkien Fried Bee Hoon @ RM26++

Yee Mee @ RM26++

Hokkien Style Friend Rice @ Rm26++

Odinary Fried Rice @ RM26

I've also fancy fried rice when ever I dine out, especially at fine restaurant like this one. Though friend rice may seem to be just a simple ordinary dish, but the fire and wok used by these trained chef seems to make it taste so much better.

Chee Cheong Fun with prawn @ RM12

We even tried some dim sum. I was told that when ever you tried dim sum, the chee cheong fun and char siu pau is a must try. If they are good, then the rest of the dim sum variety should be alright.

Siew Mai @ RM13.50. Taste just as good though this place don't serve pork

Har Kau @ RM13.50. This is really good as the prawn were big and fresh, while the skin was soft yet firm.

A meal wouldn't be complete if you don't finish it off with dessert.

Chilled Durian pancake @ RM14.00. A must try for durian lover, as the durian used are fresh.

We also tried the Mango Sago with Pamela @ RM8.50. This is the best of all the dessert they offer because its cooling and made of fresh mango.

There were 9 of us all together dinning at Luk Yu Tea House and the total bill came up to about RM416.30 after tax. That's about RM46.26 per pax

Our Bill @ RM416.30

It may look expensive, but if you benchmark it with some of the buffet offer available in town, this place definitely offer value for money dining at this kind of classy place. Bearing in mind that minimum service are offered when you have buffet.

Over all, I would rate this place at 8/10
Environment: 8/10
Service: 9/10
Food: 7/10
