The Majestic 3-storey Chinese Restaurant

  • Sharebar

It was just last week that we celebrated my grandmother’s birthday. As usual, every year, all of us from the family would gather and have a nice dinner while catching up with cousins, aunties and uncles. This year was no different, and the dinner was held at the grand and majestic Sin Choi Wah restaurant in Kepong. It was the first time I saw such a huge restaurant, with 3 storeys in its full glory.

Inside was even more impressive! I counted at least 2 wedding dinners held on the ground floor itself, and of course, the crowd was just crazy. As with most Chinese restaurants, chandeliers are a must!

Our table was set within a private room, just next to a wedding dinner.

Apart from the grandness of Sin Choy Wah, I really wanted to write about how good the food was! Surprisingly! Considering the huge amount of patrons that night, our lone table was served pretty promptly too. At least, we didn’t have to wait too long for each dish. And they’re all served piping hot and fresh.

I was most impressed with the 4-seasons platter. Each of the item was well thought of, delicious and presentable. Most noted would be the pork ribs on the top left. It was tender and well-marinated, with sweet and sour sauce that was just right.

The shark’s fin soup was above average too, with lots of shark’s fin just floating on top of the soup. Can you notice it from the picture below?

We also had the braised Sea Cucumber and Mushroom, and I have to say, those sea cucumber was thickly cut and well-cooked. It was so tender that I knew they had braised this for hours. I love sea cucumber because they’re so very good for your joints! Have to eat them while you’re young to prevent joint pains in the future ok? :)

The customary steamed chicken was nothing to shout about.

But my favourite that night had to be the Stir fried Long beans with Dried squid! The dried squid’s aroma was very strong and significant, but oh-so-wonderful! The golden brown pieces of dried squid were light, slightly crispy and definitely brought a whole new twist to the common long beans. Try this and you will never regret it.

When the next plate was served, I thought it was Nasi Pattaya. *LOL* It turned out to be fried longevity noodles! What a way to serve it. Suspense eh? The longevity noodles (“Sau Meen”) is a common dish to be ordered during birthday celebrations, signifying long life.

Finally, desserts! There were Black Glutinous Rice and Lotus Paste Buns.

I have to say I’m definitely impressed with the quality of food at Sin Choy Wah. They definitely know how to handle their crowd and their dishes. No worries on going there on a crowded night, for your food would not be compromised. I would go to this restaurant again, especially during family birthdays. :)

    Normally here, we’ll have the longevity noodles first – but our noodles, mee sua…not the same. And we do not eat long beans at such dinners – considered cheap veg! LOL!!! And first time I see bean curd sticks with steamed fish – here only with fish head curry. But the rest of the food looks real good.

    Witch, I think the address that u provided was wrong, that was their old shop @ Sri Damansara.

    The old Choy Wah actually located at Jinjang where I grown up & have been a famous place for wedding banquet, many old folks at Jinjang/Kepong area like their dishes :)

    SCW restaurant is a dining experience – grand imposing building yet unassuming staff. A Kepong/Jinjang landmark. Food quality is above average too and not as pricey as Hai Thean restaurant in Equine Park, near Sri Kembangan.

    10,000 years, 10,000 years for your Grandma!
