Criz called me last Saturday, asking me whether I am free to join him for the food review at Fun Tea Garden on the next day. I wished to go but I can’t. I told Criz maybe we can go again on Tuesday night. Criz has no problem with that. Steven was with us as well.

Steven and I reached there around 10pm. Since Criz was on the way, we started to take some photos of the restaurant. Fun Tea Garden was special if compare to others. It starts to serve the Dim Sum from 12am to 12pm. Because it was still early, we headed to Carnavon Street to see the Nine Emperor Gods’ procession. After the procession, we went to Esplanade to have Rojak before we back to Fun Tea Garden.

We were the first customer to reach there. While waiting for the Dim Sum to be ready, I snapped some photos on the interior of the restaurant.

The price board on the wall.


Criz was familiar with the place and he was the one who went to get the Dim Sum for Steven and I. The first Dim Sum that was on our table was the Chicken Roll. Please don’t let the name to fool you. It was nothing to do with the chicken. It has the pig’s liver inside. Quite special.

Satay Siu Mai. I named it myself. Haha. I like this very much. It was just finger licking good.

Shark Fin Dim Sum.

Har Kao.

Original Siu Mai.

“Pei Tan” Roll.

Prawn Roll.

Chee Cheong Fun. Too much soy sauce.

Char Siew Pao. The Char Siew was a bit salty.

Red Bean Lotus Pao. This is very special and recommended by Criz. The Pao has many layers. The filling was red bean and lotus. There is also a york inside. A must try.

Other Dim Sum.

Overall, the Dim Sum was fresh. Some was really nice and some was just a normal Dim Sum. According to Criz, Fun Tea Garden used all the fresh prawns and not the frozen prawns. However, I was a bit regret for having the Rojak before came to Fun Tea Garden. It made me half full and cannot try more on the Dim Sum. I will back again for sure.

Before I forgot, I want to thanks Criz for treating us the Dim Sum and Steven for the transportation. Thanks so much. :)

    Those foods look so good, maybe due to your photos in this post is very clear and nice, got improve!

  3. allenooi says:

    LOL, promote you for free one you know. Really nice to hang out with you guys. Haha, good idea on the Park Royal privilege card. Since he seldom use it and the card is getting moldy, it is better to use it more. :) Weekend will be OK for me but need to plan out early.

    Yes, a new one. You already left Malaysia for 2 years and for sure there will be a lot of changes. Btw, my photos always nice. Hahaha.

  13. ck lam says:

    wow…so much yummy dim sum. Very nice review. We had almost the same ones as yours. I didn’t post my review cos was quite busy then with my new domain and learning how to use WordPress. At least I get to see all of it in yr post. We really are thankful to Criz for taking us in to eat the dim sum :)

  14. vkeong says:

    Seems like I missed out this restaurant in my Penang’s dim sum reviews.. I always see Criz mention about it one lol.

  15. allenooi says:

    Yaloh, eat so much before sleep. Luckily not every time like this. If not, I have no eyes to see. For the macro, I think it depends on the model. I am using the old model Canon Power Shot S2 IS. Quite nice camera indeed. :)

    That one is a MUST try! Trust me! It was really nice!

    Ya, you are busy with your new baby… Hehehe. Ya, thanks to Criz! Hope to see your post soon.

    For sure they will be another round for your review. Criz becomes famous because of this restaurant! Muahaha.

  16. gill gill says:

  19. allenooi says:

    Try to go there again when they just open. You can reach there around 11.45pm. The dim sum will be fresh if you go there early. :)

    New Kid,
    Ya, midnight dim sum, special huh. Haha, wrong timing? It’s 12.35am and the dim sum shop is just open! Go there and have those dim sum! :)

    Ya, they just started to have it. Quite nice leh the dim sum. I will go again to try out others next time. :) One more thing, when I go Singapore, you bring me to midnight dim sum there la, can?

  20. ces says:

    omg! i am so craving again for dimsum! question, why is it spelled with a T in the signage, sorry but all my life i knew it started with a D:) please enlighten:)
    about your question, it’s lemon zest…:)

  21. JoZe Foo says:

    i didnt try the dim sum before… But try the rice next door a few times. I think is the same management lo since they use the same “fun”. The rice next door is very expensive how about the dim sum? Anyway, i wan to try this dim sum cos they had something diff lo

  22. cariso says:

    Wah, got a lot of dishes which I didn’t manage to see during our morning visit one oh….Criz Lai ! unfair lah! :p

  23. allenooi says:

    You also noticed that huh? I also have no idea why it spelled T instead of D. Maybe they want it to be different. :)

    The dim sum was reasonable. I also heard about the rice is damn expensive. I never try and don’t want to try it. Haha. I want to go for the dim sum again.

    When you all went, they almost close shop mar…. That is why, not because of Criz la. Haha. Next time go during midnight, then for sure you can get all the great dim sum.
