Another new franchise restaurant start to operate at Mahkota Cheras on 29th June 2015. Tea Garden （古文茶） Restaurant, the group that now having 22 outlets in Malaysia and Indonesia.
The environtment was designed in retro chinese coffee shop look, more traditional compare to thealready modern looking Old Town. Cleanliness consider good and equipped with air conditioner, no worry to enjoyyour food on the current hot weather.
One thing can be improve, the friendliness of waitresses, Tea Garden should hire one with better smile, not one that shows “black face” to customers. There are lots of energetic Utar Students that searching for part time job opportunity, Tea Garden should consider it.
Food wise, it is not vegetarian friendly, hardly find meat free dishes, not recommend for vegan.
This is the dim sum page of menu that offer few meat-free dish.
Ordered curry chee cheong fun, glutinous rice roll and black glutinous rice soup with glutinous ball.
Their signature dim sum, glutinous rice roll which i call it sticky rice bun. Very special and stuffing, worth to give it a try, RM 5.80 for a plate.
Black glutinous rice soup with glutinous ball, consider not bad but nothing to special about, RM 5.80 for it too.
Their 10th anniversary set that offer one main dish plus a drink for RM 10 nett. My partner ordered nasi lemak with fried chicken, comes with their signature Hainamese tea.
The nasi lemak sambal taste so good that we asked for another refill. The sambal is spicy enough and contain little sweetness, could just eat whole plate of rice with the sambal. As for the frozen fried chicken, fail big time, suggest whoever that going, order the nasi lemak biasa is enough.
First try on Hainamese tea, it smells good and taste a little on the bitter side, a must try for kopitiam style tea lover.
Price are on par with Papa Rich, portion are normal. Very good things is, all price written on menu are GST included, no service charge and any other surprise charge.
I give a rating of 6.0/10, for their well decorate interior and delicious sambal. Restaurant information as below,
No. 3, Jalan Temenggung 23/9,
