With Chinese New Year around the corner, many are frantically hunting for the perfect place to have a family reunion. Look no further for SD has found such a place tucked away at the Sime Darby Convention Centre in Hartamas. China Treasures offers a unique halal Chinese fine dining experience that is simply divine.

o      The Vibe

Similar to most Chinese restaurants in town, China Treasures offers a comfortable and exquisite setting. It is perfect for groups of all sizes and its table arrangements provide ample privacy. Although it is a fine dining restaurant, there’s no need for impeccable table manners as it is after all, a Chinese restaurant. Feel free to toss that Yee Sang or call out Yum Seng as you please. Just make sure it’s all PG13.

o     The Food

The Chinese New Year menu at China Treasure is indeed a unique one. Nonetheless, it does retain its traditional roots. The preparation and the presentation of each individual dish is carefully planned out to make sure diners get the most out of their visit. There are set menu’s specifically designed to tickle your taste buds but if you want to go a la carte you are free to do so. Here are some suggestions that we’d like to make.

The Double Boiled Shark’s Fin with Seafood in Whole Pumpkin is a unique and delicious dish to whet your appetite. The soup is boiled in a pumpkin while the pumpkin itself is being boiled in another pot. It is a clear soup and you will be able to see generous portions of shark’s fin, crab, mushrooms, bamboo pith and more beneath.

Follow up with the Sauteed Prawns with Seasonal Vegetables. This dish is sure to please prawn lovers as it is moist and fresh. And to make things easier, the prawns are peeled for your convenience. Another recommended seafood dish would be the Braised Dried Scallop & Dried Oyster with Brown Sauce. The oysters are brought in from Hong Kong and are surprisingly fresh. Both the Sauteed Prawns and the Braised Dried Scallop & Dried Oyster have a smooth texture and even those who aren’t a fan of seafood would find this mouth watering.

To top it all off, order the Smoked Duck with Tea Leaf. The tea leaves are used to make the brown gravy which is an excellent compliment to the duck. The duck is smoked which gives it a moist and smooth texture rather than a dry one that one would get from a roast duck. Compliments to the chef for an excellent dish. And just when you think it can’t get any better, the desserts arrive.

The Chilled Mango & Pomelo with Sago is absolutely divine. This creamy bowl of refreshing mango mix is like a smoothie only its better. It is unique and contains bits and pieces of mango, pomelo and strawberry. Some might think it too sweet but it’s not a sin to indulge once in awhile.

o     The Service

Service at China Treasure is top notch. The friendly and attentive staff is well versed with the menu and the details of its preparation.

SD Food Advisor’s take on China Treasure

Finally, a Chinese Restaurant that provides quality food, a cosy and comfortable setting and reasonable prices. Unlike many of the restaurant chains out there, China Treasures take pride in their offerings when it comes to preparation and presentation. SD highly recommends this restaurant, Chinese New Year or otherwise. It is a halal Chinese restaurant so be sure to bring all your friends to share this Chinese New Year spirit with you.
