The Han Room, The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur

Last week, Hubby treated me to a very nice lunch at The Han Room. It's Hubby's first visit here, but he was impressed with the food. I have been before when the restaurant newly opened last year (read review here). 

We came after lunch peak hours, so no problems getting a table. We did notice that the restaurant was still very busy (and this, on a weekday - looks like it's very popular with the office crowd). Food service was very quick, we didn't have to wait very long for our appetizers to arrive. 

Braised nuts (RM3) and Jasmine tea

I loved this dish on my previous visit, so I did not hesitate in ordering this again. The tangy flavours of the "Paku" vegetables with spicy sauce (RM8) certainly did its job in whetting our appetite. Even Hubby loved this!


And look what we found.. a heart-shaped onion ring ;)

We have heard some good things about the char siew here (BBQ pork), so we ordered a portion to try. The  portion looks a little small, but it was sufficient for two of us to share. We felt it was pretty good too, but not as good as Toast & Roast. Quite juicy, nicely caramelised but a bit on the lean side. We wanted to try the siew yoke too, but changed our mind because I ordered too much. LOL.

BBQ Char Siew (RM16)

I ordered the Deep Fried Chicken Wing with Glutinous Rice (RM9) from the "Special Chef's Recommendation's menu section. A bit expensive for a single chicken wing, which is literally just a wing stuffed with glutinous rice. Crispy, but nothing special.




This very simple noodle dish which Hubby ordered turned out to be one of the best things we ate here. The braised egg noodle village style (RM24) had all the right ingredients needed for a great dish - good texture and good flavours. If I'm not mistaken, there wasn't even any meat in there but the stock, mushrooms, beancurd, greens and smooth noodles was enough to make this a winner. Would definitely reorder this again.


The garlic fried rice topped with foie gras (RM25) has been on my to-try list, am glad that I got to try it out this time. The fried rice is simple but fragrant, and the foie was nice and rich.




They have a really huge menu here, still loads that I would love to return and try.



Verdict: Very tasty Chinese food, and fast service.

  2. Hi Baby Sumo, delicious meals all look so good. I especially like the braised peanuts, I often cook and kept in the fridge to eat as and when I like. Nice to eat with porridge.

    Have a nice day, regards.

    1. We didn't order the peanuts, it is served to every table. I dont really like to eat peanuts so Hubby finishes it all on his own ;P

    1. The foie gras is served with a rich, sweet sauce, which goes nicely with the rice.

      And yes, the paku is a cold appetizer.

    1. YUp, with a sourish, spicy sauce. Think they use lime. And then topped with fried shallots and some raw onions.

  10. Fried rice with foie gras? What a genius combination!

    1. I think quite many Japanese establishments serve tht, but it comes with a high price tag. For the medium slab of foie here, the price was quite reasonable. And of cos it was delicious too! :D

  11. quite a reasonable price for the foie gras fried rice, especially since so many foie gras dishes at other places cost above RM50 now, even for small pieces. mmmm, the egg noodle looks like total comfort food for evenings when i suffer from carbohydrate cravings :D

  15. By looking at the name of the restaurant, I would have thought that this is a Korean restaurant but it is in fact a chinese restaurant! The char siew looks gooooooood!I'm salivating!
