On sunday, had lat morning Dim Sum at Mah Wah the chinese restaurant, located at the top of the mandarin oriental hotel, together with the M bar, as well as the Pierre french restaurant.
The interior is of course typical oriental look and most tables facing the window. We had a "view" of all the tall buildings before us, with the usual smoggy foggy looking air quality. As for the menu cover, I wasnt quite sure why they had just a Japanese looking woman drawn on it.
There honestly wasnt much to choose from and overall, I found the place a little disappointing. Of course there are a 100 known places we can go outside the hotel for a proper dimsum at half the price, but we were lazy to go Q with the many other locals. Most dim sum places that i know of wont take reservations on Sunday morning, so being on holiday, I didnt want to waste half -one hour sitting with a huge bunch.
Of course I opposed to any shark fin dish, and so my husband contend himself with a soup dumpling made of shrimp and pork. Their fried taro was fantastic but their siew mei and the rest were alittle lame.
I tried their warm double boiled pear with mandarin peel as dessert and it was so so. Could do better.
