The Ming Room is a Cantonese fine-dining restaurant located in the upscale Bangsar Shopping Centre. Serving authentic Cantonese cuisine that is non-halal, the menu features classic dishes with contemporary touches. Opened in 2003, the restaurant is just 15 minutes away from the city centre.
Highly recommended and repeatedly garnering positive reviews, The Ming Room comes under the aegis of the Oriental Group. It was recently refurbished and now features elegant furnishings and fixtures that include antique terracotta horses. For those looking for a more private dining experience, the restaurant has six exclusive banquet rooms that can accommodate up to 300 people.
The Menu at The Ming Room
Though The Ming Room is spacious, those who don’t make reservations will probably have to wait for a table as the restaurant is almost always full. The menu is vast, though loyal lunchtime customers will tell you that they are partial to the Hong Kong dim sum selections. The selection is almost overwhelmingly wide, with choices presented with speedy efficiency, and the home-made sauces are especially rich and interesting.
Equally impressive is the statelier a-la-carte options of standard Chinese fare with a twist: these signature dishes are given western fusion touches. Highlights include the baked foie gras with stuffed sea clams, crispy prawns with soft shell crab in honeydew, steamed freshwater prawns with radish cake and river carp medallion in stock.
Dessert & Drinks @ The Ming Room
Overwhelmingly interesting is the dessert menu – diners are almost left in a daze at the vast selections available. A favourite among patrons is the chilled durian pudding, a creamy concoction that is served on a vessel of dry ice. Those looking to peruse the drinks menu will find plenty to engage them with a pricey and predominantly-Australian wine list.
Be it wining and dining a loved one, a sumptuous after-shopping treat, a power lunch or even a reunion dinner with family, The Ming Room caters to all. Besides the rich ambiance, gorgeous setting and the unpretentious air to the place, laughter and conversation flow freely and smoothly.
