The homemade dim sum is fresh and marvellous. We are enjoyed the good hospitality service from their staff especially Wei Yee, Mark and Aqilah. We will come back to try other varieties of food. Thank you for making our visit very pleasant experience.πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

The buffet dim sum is from 11:30 am until 2:30pm and priced at RM68 per adult. One is given a piece of order form and can order three times. Great variety. Unlike other dim sum dining places, there is an offering of fried vegetables. Just...great as we have a well balanced lunch, not just all meat choices.A pot of Chinese tea is also provided. The waiters and waitresses serve us well as they would alway fill up our tea cups and the moment we placed the second order, they will change our plates. Three awesome dipping sauces were also provided. And lastly, our plates were changed again when we place the third order.More

It was a great night for me and my friend. Came in and was greated by friendly hostess. Waitress was being helpful and offer different recommendation according to our request . Food was served really fast & delicious. Better than some 5 star hotel chinese...restaurant anytime. Manager & chef even came and check on us making sure everything was good. This is what I call a 5 star service. Will definitely recommend this place & come back again. Kudos to the whole Wan Li team. :)More

Quite a choice of halal dim sum with cosy environment to chit chat over a cup of tea. The dim sum buffet is prepared as per your selected choices so there is less wastage of food. Refillable chinese tea is inclusive in the buffet price....The manager and staff is friendly and makes you feel comfortable to dine there. Saw the manager keep disinfecting the chairs and tables really make you feel safe.More

This was the second time visiting Wan Li Restaurant for Dim Sum buffet. Its my friend's first time to try dim sum as most of the dim sum is non-halal and we are glad to find a halal dim sum restaurant. The food quality was...good especially the carrot cake. What made me really write this review is to compliment the service of the staffs in Wan Li, particulary to Ms Aqilah. She even remembered our drink order from our previous visit which was on December 2019. Thank you for your hospitality and keep up the good work!More

Amazing restaurant with great food and better staff!! Food: Ordered the Peking Duck(traditional) and got the crispest skin and juiciest duck. The duck was professionally deskinned(I feel that there’s a proper cooking term for this) at the the table which is pretty standard for such...places but you cannot even find a morsel of meat attached to any skin that was cut off. Very impressed! Kudos to the Chef πŸ‘πŸΎ Staff: We called in earlier to make a reservation, the lady who picked up patiently answered all our questions about the food and menu. When we were seated, our servers were excellent and highly knowledgeable of the menu and gave us THE best recommendations. The manager even brought us a complementary dessert. They were all so so friendly and accommodating! Thank you Zi Ying & Aqilah for the memorable Will definitely recommend this place for Peking duck and also was informed on the lunch time dim sum. Will be back to try!!More

Set up a family dinner there with an aim for a much larger gathering for extended families, which I want to both food quality and ambiance. The later met my expectations, including the rooms we intended to book for families. The food however fell short...of my expectations, based on other reviews I read before checking out this place. Service standard is remarkable, contrary to some negative reviews, but the food went the other way, almost all dishes were not presented in tandem to the stars standard of the host hotel, most were haphazardly dished, and some has portion insufficient for my table of 10. Taste of the dishes were normal, probably some zhe-car stalls could be better. We decided not returning for our gathering planned for 18 Jan 2020.More

Yes they are halal restaurant, so they do not serve pork. Unsure whether they prepare vegetarian dishes.

This is a Chinese Restaurant, I don’t think they provide candle light dinner. But they have a western restaurant, you can make a call to ask.
