Oriental Treasure 宋城酒家 @ KL

Looks like there’s no escape from dining in one of the restaurants of the Oriental Group. This trip to KL, we went for a business lunch at Oriental Treasure in Bangsar.

Perak-born, Kuala Lumpur-based Malaysian chef Justin Hor 何志强 started his culinary journey when he was just 13 years of age, having trained in the blazing-hot kitchens of several prominent Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur. He headed the Chinese kitchen at the six-star Tower Club in Singapore for a few years and later returned to Kuala Lumpur in 2000 to start the Oriental Group of restaurants.

Established in January 2003, Oriental Treasure House serves dim sum for lunch as well as other signature dishes from the repertoire of the Oriental Group.

The Lunch

  1. 少爷吊筒 Master Squids
  2. 胡椒猪肚咸菜苦瓜 Stir-Fried Bitter Gourd & Salted Vegetable With Peppered Pork Stomach
  3. 点心 Dim Sum
  4. 金牌福建面 Fried Noodles Hokkien Style

The squid was braised in a sweet and savoury soy sauce that was quite similar to the ones they used for their signature Hokkien mee. The squids were surprising tender and made for good appetisers.

Usually I would not order bitter gourd for vegetable, but because I had not have this particular vegetable for a long time, decided to have a go since there was no objection from the party. The bitter gourd was not too bitter, but the salted mustard green was flavourless.

点心 Dim Sum

We ordered several dim sum, all competently done and served in quick succession.

KL-style Hokkien noodles is one of my favourite dishes from KL, and I never fail to order this every time I have the chance. After trying ones from Noble House and Oriental Pavilion, I would say that this one was quite good and came in a reasonable sized portion.


With 9 outlets to look after, evidently the question of centralised kitchens came up. After all, the menu is 70% similar across all restaurants with the remaining percentage set aside for individual specialities, which unfortunately we did not order any today. Everything else was quite run of the mill. Quality and good, but not outstanding.
