Chinese cuisine was made to be shared with family, which is probably why Malaysians love it so much. There’s nothing better than gathering around the table at the end of the day, sharing stories and exchanging laughter as the warm broths and wonderful aroma of chicken, fish, spring rolls, and dim sum fill our tummies.
With that in mind, we’ve listed a few spots that serve up the best halal Chinese meals in Klang Valley for your next gastronomic adventure.
