Ming Room Tim Sum, BSC - Bangsar Shopping Centre reopened!

Add: THE MING ROOM @ 3rd Floor, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Bukit Bandaraya, KL
Tel: +603 2284 8822

Yes, BSC has reopened! With its new glass frontage, it has been given a new lease of life. Thank goodness Ming Room remains excellent. Thanks to R for the treat one lunchtime :-)

The tim sum was really good!

Char Siew and other very yummy timsums (Except the Poh Loh Pao which was too coconuty!)

The beef noods as well as the porridge (Pei Tan Kai Yoke Chuk) were deeeeelicious!

R recommended the Prawn Noodles, and it was good :-) A truly different variant, tomato-based and creamy, lovely!

We had kwai lin koh, ice-cream ... and mango pudding (of course!) for me.

Hmm, I was last here at the beginning of the year during Chinese New Year ... and now, as the year draws to a close, we return to the Ming Room :-) HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

Agree the restaurant is good and the food is good BUT the managers are NOT. They are cheats!! Want to share an unpleasant experience with others on the net. Hosted a dinner for some Singapore guests on 3 Dec 2011 and had a table of 10. Chose to order ala carte. Picked a seafood in pumpkin soup as had that before some time back. Price on the menu seemed reasonable at RM20/head. When the bill came, cost of soup was RM580 (RM58/head!. Chinese restaurants have this bad habit of pricing their stuff ending with "8". Guess they are the ones who want to "fatt". Why not use something ending with "4"??)
One of the managers a chap called Loh (does not deserve to be called Mr by me) who took my order said the soup we had contained "special" seafood so that's why it's RM58/head and NOT the RM20/head as in the menu!! What a lohlife and cheat!! Not wanting to make a scene in front of my guests, I paid up. This situation is so familiar when people are entertaining and the Chinese restaurants know this well and exploit it to their fullest economic advantage.
Anyway I hope this Lohlife knows what he's getting for his RM380 (580 -200) worth of extra profit!! He will get more than his fair share of "pubilicity".
Diners, BEWARE. Sorry I cannot scan the bill and post it to prove my case.
