We went to Aladdin, a new Chinese Muslim Restaurant in Glomac Square, Kelana Jaya which I think was designed to be the next Bangsar, Glomac Square that is, and Aladdin is one of the restaurant there. It's a nice restaurant with leather chairs and marble top tables, very nice flooring and great ambiance in a non pretentious, family oriented way.
The menu is quite hefty, hard bound with leaves as thick and colourful as a magazine. We were spoilt for choice, the waitress suggested the set menu but seeing that there are only four adults, a teenager and a toddler, it may be a bit much. We ended up ordering individual dishes.
Ayah had Hokkien style ramen. He gave his approval and upon tasting it, I agree. Delicious and totally unlike your common mee hailam.
My wife shared the fried seafood ramen with Amani. Scrumptious. The next time we eat here, I am having this.
Their iced jasmine tea, in this case apple flavoured came in jars. Aiman says its good, mummy nod in agreement as she had the strawberry iced jasmine tea.
I also ordered the broccoli mushroom in oyster sauce, good not great.
Mummy had kung bo chicken with rice. She likes it, though unable to finish it off as the portion is quite big.
Aiman had the sour and spicy chicken rice set. Equally good.
Rice sets came with a bowl of tasty soup.
I had the salted fish and chicken fried rice, not bad but it does not beat my all time favourite salted fish fried rice from Cozy Corner, Ampang Park.
The nicest touch is that Amani got her own set of brightly coloured plastic plates and utensils which she enjoyed as much as the food.
The service is good and the waitress knowledgeable. At the end of the meal we were pleasantly surprised when they set a plate full of yellow melon. Complimentary. The bill came to $89.00 which I think is money worth spending for what we had. The most expensive item we had was the broccoli mushroom in oyster sauce at $13.90. The rice sets are only $7.90 each while the noodles cost $10.50 each. Drinks are equally reasonable, iced jasmine tea at $3.80, coffee at $2.00, iced lemon tea at $3.00 and warm water at $0.80. Amani had the most expensive drink, ice blended blueberry puree at $6.90.
We get another pleasant surprise upon paying the bill as we were presented with a $20.00 voucher, a small ornamental hexagonal plaque with Chinese knots, nicely packed tissue and some brochures. These guys sure know how to attract and try their best to maintain customers.
Nice ambiance, good food, efficient service, reasonable prices, highly recommended.
