Yun House is located in Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, right beside KLCC. This is a Chinese fine dining restaurant that serves Cantonese cuisine, from dim sum, a la carte to dessert. Yun House's interior deserves an award with its elegant furnishings and high ceiling that creates a lavish vibe. You may bring your family here for a cozy dining experience while enjoying the fancy dim sum. The service is top-notch, you will never see them leaving your cup empty. Tea was great too!

For a start, I ordered Charcoal Lava Bun with Salted Egg Custard (RM28) that came with gold dusting in butterfly shape on top, very pretty! This is one of my favorite dim sum dish and it didn't fail to impress me. The bun was chewy and the rich salted egg yolk liquid oozes out once I took a small bite. Four Seasons Crystal Shrimp Dumplings (RM38) tasted like the typical "har gau" in other dim sum restaurant but with bigger prawns. Just to clarify, there will be 3 pieces in a basket but you can add one more piece if you have four people eating.

Xiao Long Bao (RM28) caught my eye when I first saw the menu. However, it was served in one big piece instead of the normal basket with 3 pieces. It was filled with crab roe, spring onion, ginger and chicken. To be honest, the taste was normal and I would prefer the usual one with the pork filling. Shrimp Rice Rolls with scallion oil (RM32) was served in a huge portion with those massive prawns. This was an upgraded version of chee cheong fun with that thin, smooth and silky texture of rice rolls and fresh prawns! Yum, I love this one!

Another rice roll dish would be Steamed Rice Rolls with beancurd skin, scallops and prawns (RM38). This portion was huge as well but the prawns weren't as huge as the ones above. You could see that glittering silky texture of the rice rolls. Hopefully they could be more generous with the vegetables though. The fried dim sum: Beancurd Skin Roll with shrimp (RM38) tasted quite good with the fresh prawns and it was a thicker version compared to the ones out there.

I saved the "best" for the last. Apparently, this Mini Egg Tart With Bird's Nest (RM32 a piece) is their signature bestseller. In my opinion, it was just a bite-site egg tart with tiny amount of bird's nest and gold leaf on top. No doubt this was the most expensive egg tart I ever had. It tasted good for sure with that flaky crust but I didn't get the hype. Maybe it's because it looked fancy?

Overall, the halal dim sum was good. Dining experience was elevated by the elegant decor and excellent service. I think it's worth trying at least once. It can be fully booked on weekends, so I would recommend you to book a table for a pleasant dining.
