Chynna at Hilton KL is truly a Chinese restaurant that lives up to the sophistication of Hilton internationally, well in an oriental style. Even from far, one is greeted by a Chinese roofed restaurant entrance and 2 long headed sprouted teapots on the antique cabinet.
Inside, the interior is full of red lantern-like lighting and right in the middle, the & Flowers Tea (the welcome drink) ingredients that are poured out through tea kung fu by a China kung fu tea server which many customers enjoy watching. The result is the sweetest tea I ever had, even better than the other pu er etc tea served in the restaurant.
The crockery and cutlery used all have pictures of ancient Chinese drawings.
Right in front of the restaurant, around the balcony, there are tables for those wanting to dine outside and end with a big private room for those VIP who dines more than RM 5000 worth of meal.
This is one of the few places where they have a Wine Expert to serve you and advise on the type of wine to pair with the food ordered.
Seafood Fried Rice (RM 36)
It is very simple and to me, the fried rice at Grand Hyatt is much better with more clear and visible seafood like scallops compared to the small chopped ones here.
Sambal (RM 10)
The sambal is so precious that it costs RM 10 for a small plate which to me, is not that special!
Jiang Nan Noodles (RM 40)
After dining here, I learnt the true meaning of ONE portion which means really small! The hor fun is just normal and not that special.
Sweet Nian Gao with Macadaemia Nut (RM 19)
The nian gao is something very normal in Chinese community as something that the Hokkien people pray to the Emperor of Heaven on the 9th Day of Chinese New Year to ensure that he brings only sweet and good news about the household to heaven.
Sweet Potato Dessert (RM 19)
This comes in oval shaped balls that look like what we eat at dim sum restaurant
Macadaemia Gelato with Mango Puree (RM 25)
To me, this one of the star items here as the sweet gelato blends well with the sour taste of the mango puree amazingly!
