The other day, I happened to be at Suria KLCC waiting for Janice to finish work so the decision was to have dinner in KLCC. Being one of the few Chinese Restaurants in KLCC, we decided do dine in Spring Garden Restaurant, a subsidiary of Tai Thong Group over on the 4th floor of KLCC.

The decor was pretty simple, but we knew the price wouldn't be as simple, as any restaurants in KLCC were rather pricey to begin with. Since it was our first time dining here, we hoped that the food was good.
|The current ongoing daily dinner dim sum promotion|
Spring Garden was having this daily dinner dim sum promotion of 50% off for any dim sums off the menu from 5pm - 8pm so we decided to order some dim sums to go with our main dishes.
|#1 Chicken and shrimp dumpling - RM4.40 after 50% discount|
|#2 Crystal Shrimp Dumpling - RM4.90 after 50% discount|
|#3 Deep Fried Beancurd Roll - RM3.90 after 50% discount|
The dim sum were fairly nice, with large shrimps in the shrimp dumpling. The taste was okay, but not exceptional though. Bear in mind this is after the 50% discount, I don't think it would have been okay if they charged me the full price before discount as I would have expected much more from the dim sums. On top of the 3 small plates of dim sums, we opted for a simple meal of fried rice, soup and a main dish.
|#4 Roasted peanuts to whet our appetite while waiting for our food - RM5|
|#5 Spring Garden Special Fried Rice - RM28|
|#7 Chicken Soup - RM18 for 2 bowls|
Well, for these main dishes, I would say the soup was good and it's really healthy with all the ingredients inside. The Spring Garden Special Fried Rice was fragrant with lots of different meat thrown in to create a nice taste. I had to add a bit of soy sauce though to bring out the taste.
|#6 Deep Fried Shatin Chicken - 2 chicken @ RM15 each|
My slight disappointment would be on the Deep Fried Shatin Chicken. I'm fine with the small serving as it's expected for a small bird, but the taste just wasn't there. I felt like I was eating some tasteless meat for RM15/chicken. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be served this way, but a bit of spice could do a lot wonders to the taste.
Overall it was a rather heavy meal for two, blame it on my greed to order everything off the menu. Spring Garden Restaurant still brings in the crowd since the isn't much of a choice anywhere else for some Chinese cuisine in KLCC. We left the restaurant with a full stomach, full but not really satisfied.
