Dorsett Grand Subang - The Emperor, Cafe Aroma & Tanjung Wellness Spa

During our family staycation at Dorsett Grand Subang, we also had dim sum lunch at The Emperor, lunch at Cafe Aroma and spa treatments at the Tanjung Wellness Spa. This staycation was all about fun, food and relaxation!

The Emperor Restaurant at Dorsett Grand Subang serves authentic Cantonese cuisine. I got to try some of the signature dishes during a food review here and we are back for dim sum the following day with the kids. On weekdays, you can order off the a la carte dim sum menu and on weekends and public holidays, they do a brunch buffet for RM60++ per adult.

Dim sum feast!

The dim sum items that we sampled are mostly traditional, and well executed. For example, the steamed siew mai Emperor style (RM10) and steamed fish ball (RM7) are the kids favorites. They also love the steamed bun with BBQ chicken (RM6) and they were delighted that they could have their favorite salted egg custard bun albeit with squid ink coloured skin.

My favorite item from this dim sum lunch was the crispy waffle paper prawn and mango roll (RM13) as I love the combination of the prawn and mango flavour ie sweet & savoury that works well. I also like the deep fried prawn roll with cheese (RM9).

For desserts, we tried the chilled avocado with cream (RM12), chilled honey dew and sago with ice cream (RM8) and chilled sea coconut with longan. Would have loved to try their baked egg tarts but was way too stuffed. :P


Opening times: Lunch: 12:00 noon - 2:30 pm (Mondays to Saturdays)/ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm (Sundays and Public Holidays); Dinner: 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm.


Café Aroma offers both Asian and Western dishes for lunch and dinner. We came here for a light lunch before we checked out from the hotel. Hubby tried the char koay teow while Baby D insisted on having wantan mee for lunch. Hubby enjoyed the CKT, pretty good for a pork-free version and Baby C liked the wantans served with the wantan mee. I ordered the oven baked cod, which I really enjoyed - a big slab of cod, which was nicely cooked and came off in flakes.

A session at the spa makes a staycation complete. Tanjung Wellness Spa offers a holistic approach to relaxation and revitalization for the mind and body. Since this is a family staycation, we took turns to visit the spa / babysit the kids. 


I had the exfoliating massage (RM188 nett for 60 mins), a relaxing massage to release tension and unblock congestion within the skin. First, a layer of Osmium's signature blend energy oil is applied all over the body, followed by the Mother of Pearl Scrub which is gently massaged to exfoliate, whiten and revitalise the skin. The treatment finished off with a 15-min soak in the ultrasonic bubble bath, rather unusual but this is supposed to be good for improving blood circulation. My skin did feel silky smooth and my body relaxed after the treatment. 

Hubby, on the other hand, had the Energy Massage, a strong deep tissue massage designed to relive muscle tension. (RM288 nett for 90 mins). A revitalising experience.
