Authentic Sichuan and Cantonese Flavours @ Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant, PARKROYAL Hotel

My Sichuan & Cantonese food experience @ PARKROYAL Hotel, Kuala Lumpur ...
  • Honestly, it been years that I did not eat Sichuan food ... seriously, maybe more than 5 years. Finally my chance to dine and have the chance to try some of the authentic Sichuan food served @ the elegant Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL Hotel, KL.

  • Malaysia's first Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is the 3rd branch of the Si Chuan Dou Hua chain of restaurant. The original team of master chefs opened Singapore's 1st branch at PARKROYAL on Beach Road in 1996 followed by 2nd branch at the panoramic 60th floor of UOB Plaza Singapore in 2002.

Si Chuan Dou Hua restaurant features a dramatic entrance flanked by discreetly illuminated glass etchings and zen-like surroundings. It can take 145 diners at any one time.
  • Later this restaurant traversed boundaries and reached Malaysia with the opening of Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur in July 2003. Located at the Lower Lobby of the hotel.

Nice dining ambience at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant


A metre-long nose bronze tea kettle



The Dragon symbol at the tea kettle ... made from Bronze ...


I love tea pots and the carving arts engraved on the tea pot, bowls and plates ...



  • The dining experience at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is made memorable by the tea server who presents the humble act of tea art. The tea server combines the skills of Chinese Martial arts, dance and gymnastics to perform elegant tea-pouring moves.


Si Chuan Dou Hua's signature Eight Treasure Tea

  • Every cup of tea is special, whether you are sampling the restaurant's signature Eight Treasure Tea or other blends such as Flower Tea or Oolong Tea.

Selling @ RM 55 in the restaurant ... seriously tasty and very healthy tea!


The fantastic tea server ... I am amazed by his tea pouring skills as you will see the video at the end of the post ...


Just see how accurate he pours the water into the cup of tea ... I tried it to pour and I failed ... it took 4 years for him to master this skill.


My freshly brewed cup of tea ... hehehe ... I love the fragrance of this Eight Treasure Tea ...


Lots of herbs and ingredients ...

Led by two experienced Chefs - Yu You Xiang from Si Chuan (right) and Chinese Chef Chew Chee Kuong (left), Si Chuan Duo Hua Restaurant boasts an extensive a la carte menu featuring authentic Sichuan specialities while complemented by a selection of Cantonese favourites.


Fried Crispy Spring Rolls as my starter ... fried till perfection and very tasty indeed ...


Five Delicacies Combination ... this is really a good starter dish to neutralize your taste buds and makes you have a better appetite to eat ... seriously this is a very good and yummy dish ...


Sauted cucumbers


Mushrooms ...


Jelly-fish with sesame seeds ...


Marinated baby octopus ...


Freshly Sliced Chicken meats ...


Eight Treasures Soup with Seafood ... looks greeny soup ... I can assured that this taste better than the normal shark fin soup served in Chinese Restaurant ...


Lots of rich seafood ingredients in this soup ...


Fresh Scallop with Garlic and Chilli ...


Silver Cod Twin Styles ...






Boiled Sliced Beef with Chilli Oil and Peppercorn ... for spicy food lovers, this is highly recommended ... the feeling is just fantastic with the peppercorn effect ... it gives you a really high spicy burning sensation in your mouth ... imagine taking a full spoon of wasabi and swallow into your mouth! But this effect comes slowly




Stir-fried Diced Chicken in Spicy Bean Paste ...




Stir-fried Hong Kong Kailan with Dried Chilli ... give u a crunchy sound when u ate the stem of the Kailan, simply fresh and delicious!


This is the best Beancurd ... simply melt in your mouth, in fact, you don't even feel the beancurd in your mouth ... really super fine and it is the restaurant secret recipe and method to produce this Home Made Fine Beancurd with Wolfberries ...


Enjoy the videos of how the Tea Server perform his Tea Pouring art ...

  • Thanks to Witch for the videos ...






  • Simply the best Sichuan and Cantonese food I had in my life ... I am thrilled with the tea serving performance ... truly best dining experience at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant.

I am a great fan of Sichuan food and passed this hotel so many times. Your blog has prompted me to go this Saturday! I first tasted Sichuan food like over 20 years ago when Holiday Inns had this restaurant "Meisan Terrace" serving exotic Sichuan dishes. I guess Vialentino not yet born la.. LOL

His tea pouring skill is aweseome!!! It's my first time seeing a teapot with such a long mouth... and their "xiao chai" are so tempting too!

Tammy_Lee said...

Oh Via, your pictures are gorgeous and I am stunt with the tea pouring video. He is just simply amazing and I bet he is from China. Don't think Malaysia locals have this talent.

The Master tea pourer is just amazing! And so was the sichuan beef! Very numbing but delicious :)

thule a.k.a leo said...

when it's in the hotel, one would expect top notch service from the restaurant :) like you, I have not taken any Si Chuan food for years.. but now you had it and I still haven't :P
"Five Delicacies Combination" looks like those stuff in Japanese restaurants...

choi yen said...

Mommy Ling said...

Amazed by the skills. Thanks for sharing us the videos.

yvonne said...

I seldom have Cantonese food and this is one special restaurant :) The soup looks healthy, must be the effect of its color.

foodntrravella said...

I went for the food tasting last year. I agree that guy is skilled in pouring tea into yr small cup...not even a drop on the table/floor.

jason said...

Charmaine said...

Wah this kind of tea pouring skill can only be seen during emperor dynasty. Now also can see there! Impressive!
