Dim Sum Buffet @ West Lake Restaurant

West Lake Chinese Restaurant
Sunway Lagoon Hotel Resort
Bandar Sunway

Tel: 03-7492-8000

This afternoon I had a delightful lunch with 4 robust kids young adults with very healthy appetities. Ahh...just the right criteria for a buffet!

During weekends and public holidays, West Lake Restaurant serves a Dim Sum buffet at RM52++ per person. The good thing about this buffet is that only the appetizers and desserts are laid out on the buffet line...the rest of the hot dishes & dim sum are ordered from their menu. This ensures the food comes to your table hot and freshly cooked!

These were some of the Appetizers we had...


Fresh Oysters...eaten with a squeeze of lemon & tabasco sauce...heavenly!

Lidako - baby octopus...we had our fill of this...

Roast chicken, fresh salmon and some dunno-what rolls...

Braised chicken feet ... these had been braised till very soft in a sauce fragrant with chinese herbs and spices...
Items ordered from the menu:
Fried Yam Puffs...served piping hot, with a light crispy yam layer and the yummy chicken filling oozing from the centre...

Fried Prawn Dumplings ...these crunchy dumplings of very fresh shrimps filling were served with salad cream and they disappeared in no time!

These Unagi Springrolls were the ultimate favourites of the day...we had 4 servings of these as they were just soooo good! Crispy springrolls with tasty unagi inside!

Steamed Salmon Head in Garlic...fresh and garlicky...

These Baby Pak Choy with Garlic was another firm favourite - we had 4 servings as the portions were really small...the pak choy were so fresh and crunchy.

Each of us had a bowl of this Shrimp Wantan Soup...again the shrimps were super fresh, served in superior stock...

Dim sum without Loh Mah Kai is not dim sum, right? The glutinuous rice has been steamed to melting softness, infused with the flavour of the chicken and mushroom...

These Chee Cheong Fun had Scallops rolled inside...truly scrumptious!

The Fruits Rojak, from the buffet line, was refreshing...

My dessert were these quaint Steamed Chinese Cakes. The kids young adults had a variety of other cakes and pastries and jellies!
