Eden Dim Sum City restaurant in Bandar Menjalara is a popular place to go for good dim sum in Kepong. I stumbled upon this [tag]dim sum[/tag] restaurant one day when I was driving aimlessly looking for a place to have breakfast. The large crowd even well after breakfast time was an indication that Eden should be pretty good.

dim sum

It was one of the most expensive dim sum [tag]breakfast[/tag] I ever had – RM30. My own mistake actually, I didn’t ask for the price before taking all the expensive stuff, lol.

The dim sum at Eden are either placed inside the bamboo basket or on a small plate. Those in baskets are higher classed ones with more and extravagant ingredients like abalone, scallops and clams. Therefore they are more expensive, RM6-7 depending on the dim sum you choose.
Well, if I knew the price earlier I wouldn’t have taken so many baskets lol. But at least the dim sum is quite special and most of them are new to me like this one – four medium sized prawns stacked on each other, delicious.

scallop dim sum

Another expensive dim sum, topped with scallop. Taste wise was so so because the scallop was kinda rubbery.

abalone dim sum

This one is nice – mini abalone, prawn and meat wrapped in a thin translucent har gao skin. I probably won’t order it again because its price but it was a damn good try, abalone leh!

har gao

Moving along to the normal stuff @ RM3 per plate lol. Har gao and mini egg tarts, both also very tasty.

fried prawn rolls

Deep fried bean curd skin rolls with prawn fillings.

char siu sou

Char Siu Sou was so so. The puff pastry was nice and crispy but the char siu fillings tasted a bit weird.

Most of the waiters at Eden are teenagers and they are an energetic and friendly bunch. Food and quality wise it is one of the better ones out there, price is reasonable too considering it’s in KL. Just remember the dim sum in baskets are double the price of the normal ones ok.

    we almost eat there twice a month on Saturday since the day Eden opened. To be frank, this is the best shop we have ever tried. Husband & I have been trying those shop in Subang, Sri Petaling, none can beat this.

    I just tried today @Eden, here is my comments, If you are are taking those premiums one well surely is tasty and those cost you around RM6/lung, with that price i would rather go for Summer Palace. Anyhow just my 2 cents worth.

    Hi vkeong,

    may I know of the exact location of the shop? I’m a tourist looking to try the dim sum here.

    All dim sum served here is pork free, even the Char Siew Pao is chicken meat. So this might charge higher price.

    attitude very bad, the lady boss not friendly and the food just normal. i think jalan ipoh much more better. nowaday the services is the key, but they are extremely poor of it!

    Just tried it this morning. Here is my comment:
    1) Food quality – those Rm3 per plate dimsum were all below average. Mostly all meat with no prawns. Those premium ones was better with scallops and all prawns etc, but for RM5-6, Jin Xiun is MUCH MUCH better tasting . 5/10
    2) Service – yes, agree with Vkeong, the service is good, waiter/waitresses are energetic and serve you well despite being crowded. 8/10
    3) Environment, its like eating dim sum in a coffee shop with tables cramped very closed to one another. Rate: 2/10
    4) Value, well, its not really cheap but some dim sum portion are pretty big like yong tou foo…Rate 7/10.

    Will I return, well maybe when I am in that area 50/50. But not when I am hungry for good tasting dim sum.
