The following dinner list will be the selection from RM598++.

中天冷热荤 Chong Tian Four Combination, consist of fish ball covered with starch egg. Barbecue bacon roll. The Sea Asparagus stir fried with Macadamia nut and the salted egg with crab stick roll.


干贝蟹肉群翅 Braised Shark’s Fin with Crabmeat and Dried Scallop. The crab meats in the shark fin are very big chunk and that makes the soup tasty. Added with the dried scallop made the soup filled with aroma.


Nowadays, it is very hard to get an authentic shark fin, instead 1881 Chong Tian still able to provide so which is a plus point.


The soup is very thick and rich with seafood flavour.


Even the bowl of the soup is also using the imperial dragon bowl.


川弓醉香鸡Fried Chicken with Chinese Wine. The chicken is marinated with nice Chinese rice wine and it is then fried until golden brown.


The sense of the rice wine is very nice and the meat is filled with aroma flavour. The taste is similar to oven baked salty chicken yet with rice wine taste.


椒茸蒸石斑 Steamed Grouper Fish with Chili and Garlic, the grouper is steam and served with hot and sourish gravy. On top of the fish the chopped garlic, spring onion and bird eye chilli are sprinkle around.


The gravy is slight on the spicy side. I personally feel that in order to maintain the freshness of the fish, steam with soy sauce will be the best combination. Because the spiciness and the sourish will overwhelm the freshness if cook in this way.


印尼黄姜虾 Pan Fried Prawns with Indonesia Style, the prawns are marinated with tumaric and cooked with curry. It is then mixed with curry leaves and onion.

The taste of the prawn is very fresh and the meat of the prawn is very sweet.


龙凤扣时蔬 Dragon Phoenix Green Garden, this dish is served with dried oysters, mushroom, Chinese cabbage, broccoli and topped with some scallop slices.


The taste of the Chinese cabbage is pack with flavour as it is soaked in the gravy of the dish and the dried oyster is so tender after the stir fried together with the gravy.


乡下佬炒饭Fried Rice with Village Style, the fried rice is mixed with bean sprout, barbecue pork cubes, prawn and topped with deep fried mini dried shrimp.


The taste of the rice is packed with Chinese rice wine taste. However, the taste if the fried rice is weird when is mixed with bean sprout. So far this is the only place in town that served fried rice with bean sprout. This dish is not my cup of tea.


龙珠鲜果冰Chilled Dragon Mixed Fruits, the base of the soup is cooked with dragon fruits and it is mix with mixed fruits such as lychee and pineapple cubes and jelly cubes.


The taste of this dessert is quite unique and refreshing.


Overall, the food here is delightful and presentable. However, not all the taste of the food here suite general taste. The price of the food here with such ambience and presentation is consider reasonable. The parking of the place here is a bit hard if dining at the peak time.
