Restoran Sin Kee is a no-frills Chinese/Western restaurant with cute yellow lampshades dominating it's overhead ceiling and is fully air conditioned.

We are their regular customers from their early years, when the restaurant was situated opposite (next to a SHELL station) to this present location.

We were there for lunch on Saturday and found that it was already seated with people, even before they start to take orders!

Parking is ample at a parking lot, a few shops away.

Yellow lampshades overhead.

Steamed grass carp (belly section)-awash with good grade sweet light soy sauce, a dash of Chinese wine and topped with lots of finely blended ginger, coriander leaves- the flesh was smooth and fine in texture
Stir fry mixed vegetables-full of ingredients like sliced fish cake, squid, prawn, button mushroom plus a bit of every kinds of green to satisfy everyone.

Soy sauce pork (tender loin eye muscle)-well marinated and oozes with sauce but was quite tough to chew!

Chicken Chop-Hainanese style-their signature dish-served with potato wedges, red bean, green pea and grilled tomato-brown sauce was tasty, mouth watering and chicken was well battered, tender and moist.

Double boiled sliced Lotus root soup-was clear and filled with lots of fresh groundnut, red dates, toasted cuttlefish and pork meat.

Fried rice-whole grain and not oily-with waxed Chinese sausage, egg, prawn and chopped spring onion-lovely serving.

Total bill:rm82/
Location: No.194, Jalan Tun Sambanthan,
Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur
