Last week, we took the kids for a staycation at Prince Hotel & Residence KL as they were on their school holidays. One of the things our kids love doing during staycations is enjoying good food (foodies in the making, I think!).
For dinner, we visited Tai Zi Heen (one of the best pork-free Chinese restaurants in KL IMHO) and sampled their All-You-Can-Eat Dinner new menu. It features dishes from their a la carte menu and dim sum selections which are prepared a la minute. Priced at RM79.30 per person (inclusive 6% GST),this dinner promotion is available daily from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
50 dishes, 1 Great Price..
The menu is made up of 50 delectable items, and diners can choose from appetizers, soups, dim sum, barbeque, seafood, poultry, beef, venison, lamb, bean curd, vegetables, noodles, rice and desserts. It certainly isn't easy when it comes to ordering as everything on the menu sounds enticing. There is no limit as to how much you can order and you can order a certain dish as many times as you like, if that is what you desire.
Drunken tiger prawns with Hua Diao wine
First to arrive at our table is the drunken tiger prawns with Hua Diao wine. Four big prawns, just nice for our family of four. Fresh and meaty, we enjoyed this! For the kids, we also ordered siew mai (chicken and shrimp dumplings) - sorry no photos, as kids were fast as lightning. While the kids enjoyed their siew mai, Hubby and I had the roasted crispy duck with sweet brown sauce and Beijing-style mantau. Love the crispy skin. Portions in general for this promotion are just nice for 2-3 pax if sharing a lot of dishes.
Seared black pepper smoked duck breast with mango chutney
I would highly recommend the beef dishes - tried the sliced Australian beef sirloin with tangy Mongolian sauce, as well as the wok-fried sliced Australian beef sirloin with black pepper sauce. The beef was super tender and both sauces had its merits. If I had more tummy space, I would definitely order another plate of beef.
Obviously we ordered the wok fried fresh sea scallops dish too... anything scallop cannot escape me. Or my kids. My boy was super excited when the scallop dish arrived and as soon as photos were taken, 1-2-3 scallops went into his mouth. So mummy ended up eating broccoli. :P
One of the recommended dishes from Chef Michael was the Szechuan-style poached seafood with spicy chilli oil. I did notice that they have quite a number of Szechuan-style dishes on the menu such as the hot and sour soup and poached boneless chicken. The spiciness level was just nice for me, and it came with generous chunks of prawns and fish as well as Nameko mushrooms. We also ordered the deep fried sea grouper fillet as the kids wanted fish, this was served with a tangy Thai chilli plum sauce.
Another really delicious, not-to-be-missed dish is the stir fried Shanghai noodles with shredded chicken in supreme soy sauce. Very very very good! We were pretty happy with all the dishes we tried, only dish we didn't like was the seared black pepper smoked duck breast appetizer as we found it a little too salty for our liking.

For desserts we had the steamed bamboo charcoal buns with salted egg yolk custard, crispy Chinese pancakes with lotus paste and 3 portions of chilled mango pudding with passion fruit sauce. Yup, you read it right... 3 portions. First plate went down a treat, so we ordered another, and then another.
*Staycation is self-paid, however we dined at Tai Zi Heen by invitation of the hotel.
Verdict: Delicious, good-quality dishes. This promotion is great for those with big appetites as you get to try many dishes in sampling portions. Great price, great value.
