Newest Dim Sum outlet opening on the island (on 10th August). On the outside, it may look like another food court. Well it is but at the back, Viva has managed to set up a full working kitchen to dish out one of the best dim sum on the island
Judging from the dished we reviewed, the dim sum is superior to its competitors, the variety is wide selection, taste more refined and the ingredients is quality. Much more to standard you get in hotel restaurants. In fact the proprietor, Mr David C.M. Loh stressed that the concept of this restaurant is to present diners with quality dim sum made to established restaurants at affordable price that everyone can afford to enjoy
As a matter of fact, the chefs has many years in the restaurant environment in the greater city of Kuala Lumpur and they are proud of fact that they used top grade food ingredients to muster their creations. For example stuffed avocado and custard cream with crispy friend vermicelli noodle - sweet and exotic.
I recommend the dim sum place to anyone who enjoy quality and reasonable price and and a keen taste of true Hong Kong style dim sum. I definitely would like to go there often. Opening hours is 6:00am - 2:00pm daily but I believe they will extend their operating hour to include 6:00pm - 10:00pm for a fix of evening dim sum by the time of this review's publication.
