Dim Sum Buffet @ Janbo Restaurant, Sri Petaling
ATTENTION: Some readers commented that this restaurant has closed (business ended), or the buffet is no more. I am not sure myself because I have never went back after the first visit. Please take not and refer to the comments for more info..
I had a dim sum buffet for brunch last weekend in Janbo Restaurant. Janbo has a few branches but the one I went is located in Seri Petaling.
I think [tag]Janbo[/tag]‘s [tag]dim sum buffet[/tag] is quite cheap for
RM13.50 RM15++ per pax. Although it’s buffet concept, the dim sum is not placed at a designated spot for customers to retrieve. Instead, you place your order at the table to the waiters.
There are 40 items to choose from the menu which includes dim sum either steamed or fried, noodles, porridge and dessert. The dim sum which sounds and looks the nicest is the Shark Fin’s Siu Mai. From what I tasted, it seemed they gave real sharks fin.. not tong fun lol. Taste wise it was quite disappointing.. I felt the dumplings were a bit under seasoned. But we still took a few baskets of it, just for the Sharks Fins. Hah!
Chicken [tag]Siu Mai[/tag], weird translation because in Chinese had a glamorous name – crystal chicken crown dumpling.
This was the best tasting [tag]dim sum[/tag] for me that day – siu mai wrapped in dumpling skin made from spinach.
Har Gao (prawn dumpling) was nice too. All the food I’ve shown so far was for our first round only lol.
Our second round started with a small serving of fresh prawn chee cheong fun.
Followed by some steamed prawn rolls.
Salad Cream Prawn.. good stuff. It didn’t have the strong recycled oil’s smell.
Then we ended with a dessert of luohan, winter melon and longan. It was served warm. You could add ice and it still tastes quite sweet. There are a whole lot more dim sum we had but I don’t think I will show them one by one here. If you are planning to order Chinese tea, please know that it’s RM2 per person. Something that surprised me was the low 3% service charge. And I thought all restaurants charge at least 5% for service.
Janbo’s dim sum isn’t spectacular but it surely beats quite a number of dim sum restaurants I’ve been to. And for the cheap price of RM13.50, you get to eat all the dim sum you want. Frankly, it’s a really good deal. And if you know any other restaurants that have dim sum buffet, please leave me a comment and let me know!

Victor’s Kitchen is a family run dim sum restaurant in Sunshine Plaza along Bencoolen Street, Singapore that serves authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum. They are able to claim this because the owner and chef himself is a Hongkie. But because of that too the the expectation bar of the dim sum here is higher. Victor’s

**Nov 2001 update: Life Centre is undergoing major renovations but Munakata is still open for business as usual. About a year ago I went to Munakata‘s Japanese Buffet and I was happy with their authentic Japanese dishes served in the ala-carte buffet. Since then I have been to a couple of Japanese buffets with some

Hidden behind Istana Negara along Jalan Bellamy is an array of ikan bakar stalls next to each other forming a medan ikan bakar. Despite its secluded location it gets extremely crowded especially during lunch hour. Not knowing which stall to go for, we chose Gerai No.3 that was the busiest among all. Three huge frying

Kuishin-Bo was the last Japanese restaurant in Singapore I went before coming back to Malaysia. The restaurant is popular for its Japanese buffet. Unless you want to risk not having any seats, reservation is a must especially during weekends. Sushi and sashimi, very good quality and fresh for a buffet. Tempura prepared with really huge

Next time, if you around KL Sentral and feeling hungry, why not hop over to Mr.Chiam’s Fritters stall and help yourself with some delicious pisang goreng, curry puff, kuih bakul and sesame balls. They are all made fresh and most importantly cheap and affordable, something that’s fast becoming rare in KL nowadays. When I first
