Located in Sime Darby Convention Centre, China Treasures is a regular favourite especially for families. The best part is, this is one of the few dim sum restaurants in KL that has halal certification! So you definitely don’t need to worry when chowing down on plates and plates of dim sum here.

If that isn't enough  reason to dig in, their crispy, MSG and antibiotic free succulent chicken with Korean flavours will definitely change your mind! They’ve also got other things on the menu as well but we’d go straight for their chicken.
