Yu Jia Village Seafood - Tim Sum in Imbi, KL

Add: Yu Jia Village Seafood Restaurant @ Jalan Barat, off Jalan Imbi, KL
Tel: +603 2143 9966


Yam crisps ... hmm, nice!


Char siew pao and Loh Mai Kai were really delicious!


I liked the siew mai and deep fried brinjal.


Average timsum fare ...


Again ... so average.


Custard bun ... Uh, I didn't like it!


The truly dissapointing dishes!


And ... the one I didn't even try!


Time for desserts ... most were average, but the herbal jelly (gwai lin goh) was terrible, as was the starchy and overly-firm mango pudding.



Here's what the restaurant is most famous for ... its seafood. Including some very rude and strange looking geoducks!
Overall, I wasn't impressed by the timsum served at Yu Jia, but at least it was good value, ended up costing each of us (9 pax) RM$27.70 a person.
