A visit to Tai Zi Heen Chinese Restaurant begins from its grand spiral staircase, right up to its location on level two in Prince Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. This award winning Chinese Restaurant is currently having selections of both traditional Hong Kong Dim Sum, Tai Zi Heen’s signature Dim Sum and the popular Dim Sum Odyssey.
My visit to this restaurant was made possible when Ken and Big Boys Oven invited me to attend the dim sum food tasting last Saturday.
The Chinese Master Chef, Ricky Thein and Dim Sum Chef Loo Sai Wah has always been creative in their preparation of dim sum, incorporating plenty of fusion. Using different ingredients to prepare unique dim sum items, which is both impressive in quality and presentation. We were privileged to be able to taste some of the recent creations; the spread from the new Southeast Asian Dim Sum Menu and also from the Normal Menu.
