Restaurant MinMax @ PNB Darby Park



I admit, I was skeptical towards halal dim sum, why would anyone want to pay so much for halal dim sum when the real thing is easily available? However, everyone, including our Muslim acquaintances deserves a fair opportunity to enjoy these tantalizing and dainty little goods that “touch your heart”, literally.

I was so glad that I tagged along for lunch at Restaurant MinMax, a halal Chinese place that comes highly recommended by my boss. A glance through its extensive menu offering various Chinese dishes and dim sums was enough to my salivary glands into overdrive.

The dim sum was decent, a somewhat hit and miss to be exact, but it is definitely a restaurant to return to again, considering the price that we paid for (approximately RM 17 per head) because a halal dim sum affair at hotels would cost a boom anytime.

    hi! i’ve been craving for dimsum for few days but u knwlaa…u hv to pay a bit more to get a good ones. Right after i read your review yesterday, I made my way to MinMax all d way frm Kelana Jaya w my sis.

    You were right! It tastes so heavenly good and surprisingly cheap. We enjoyed it very much! The dimsum comes in big size, so so yummy & the food made us happy (flavanoid in dim sum!! Naaah…) Not a single word can describe how good the dim sum was. Anyway we were there quite late, the waiter turned down our request for second order. :-( .

    I’ve tried meisan sczechuan @ quality htl, shang, sheraton, westin, eden, concorde sh alm & few others, sorry to say this, but to me, min max is d best!

    Planning to go again in near time w my whole family. :-)

    thanx frens!


  40. Food Lover says:

    This is the worst dim sum i had in KL, the service was suck!
    I brought my HK frens there, the waitress/captains’s service suck! When we cal them for drink, they all pretend deaf or blind…no next time…no wonder offer RM2.90 but nobody eating there except those group of tourists from China or Indonesia who cheated by tourguide to eating there…
    Min Max Retaurant worst in KL town..


  41. Agnes says:
