    Madam Kwans - KLCC Shopping Centre: Local Malaysian Food

    Madam Kwans Restaurant review KLCC by aussirose

    We had lunch with borneogrrl here. You can always trust a local to choose a great restaurant. When we arrived the place was packed, plus there were people waiting outside for a table....... another tell tale sign that this was going to be good. And it was! Great choice Valerie!! :o)

    I highly recommend Madam Kwans in the KLCC Shopping Centre. The food was lovely, service fantastic and price reasonable.

    The reviews on Trip Advisor on the link below also attest to this restaurant being an excellent choice.

  • Madam Kwan at Midvalley: Delicious Sang Har Mee and Otak-Otak

    by sjyap27 Written Jul 28, 2012

    I like to go Madam Kwan for Otak-otak, especially. It taste similar to the Otak-Otak I tasted in Muar, Johor.
    It is juicy, fragrant, and just adequate spicy.
    It's Sang Har mee is also very delicious, although the price is not very cheap.

    I have visited Madam Kwan, Midvalley, for dinner each time before I catch a movie in the cinema. For each time I went, the service is always disappointing. The staff look uninterested and not enough passion. The attendant at the door is NOT smiling at all.
    Hence, I told my friend that I will NOT visit Madam Kwan at Midvalley again but other branch, I think KLCC one was good.

    A restaurant is NOT only about good food, but also the service.

    Favorite Dish: Otak-otak, fragrant, tasty, and juicy

    Sang Har mee, juicy.

    Madam Kwan's serves mainly traditional Chinese food. The service was prompt. For those Muslim travellers, this restaurant is halal (just look out for the halal sign/logo outside the restuarant). Although Malaysia is an Islamic country, not necessarily everything is halal.

    Favorite Dish: I had the seafood soup vermicilli. Enjoyed it!

    Mushroom Chicken Rice
    1 more image

    I always bring my overseas guests to this restaurant and so far have gotten rave reviews.

    Favorite Dish: My all time favourite is the mushroom chicken rice and the assam prawns. If you are adventurous, try the sambal petai ( u may need a strong mint after ). You can order dishes ( e.g. fish head curry, stir fried kailan vegetable, chicken rendang curry ) or individual dishes ( kuay teow soup noodles, fried mee mamak ).

    Madam Kwan's: Popular Restaruant at KLCC

    by y_lyn Updated Jun 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Madam Kwan's is a very popular restaruant at KLCC. You will know by just looking at the queue outside the restaurant during lunch hour. Compared to the other restaurants at the same level, this is definitely more well-known.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered Nasi Bojari for both my visits to Madam Kwan's. This dish is like Nasi Bryani, with coloured rice. At Madam Kwan's, Nasi Bojari is the coloured rice with a big chicken drumstick, redangs and sambal prawns. The serving is very big and I cannot finish the plate on the 2 occasions. The price is more expensive than outside ~ RM19.90. Other popular dishes here will be Nasi Lemak and Curry Fish Head.

    My favourite branch: Bangsar Telawi. I like this place. It's small, not too crowded if you go dduring the right time and the food taste better here than the one in KLCC. The service is also much better here. It's located in a row of not so many restaurants so it's a little more comfortable.

    Favorite Dish: Nasi Lemak, Char Kuay Teow.

    Madam Kwan's has 3 branches in Mid Valley Megamall, KLCC and in Bangsar.

    If you are looking for a nice place to try out Malaysian local dishes, Madam Kwan is the perfect place although the prices are a bit pricey. They have all sorts of Malaysian food from their famous nasi lemak to Chinese style chicken rice to Indian style fish head curry and local desserts.

    Madam Kwan's: Famous Madam Kwan's

    by xuessium Updated Mar 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Came highly recommended for offering true Malaysian cuisines. It seems Madam Kwan is quite a celebrity on the local celebrity cook scene judging by the number of newspaper and magazines clippings.

    I was at the branch in Mid Valley Megamall. The restaurant has an upmarket look but without trying to be too pretentious, walking a fine line between Asian and Western style decor. The waitresses and waiters are all smartly dressed and guests are served with glasses of strawberry scented cold water.

    The service was great and warm though the dishes were a little on the small side.

    It helps of course that the food was great as welll! All packaging WITH substance.

    There are 3 branches: Inside Mid Valley Megamall, Inside KLCC and in Bangsar.

    Favorite Dish: 1) The Beef Rendang. Meat done tenderly and yet flavourful without being chewy.

    2) Extremely generous with the salted fish in the bean sprouts stir-fried with salted fish.

    3) The Nasi Bojari - for finding new uses between Laksa leaves and rice!

    4) The secret reciped Fried Chicken Drumstick. Succulent and tasty!

    For pictures of some of Madam Kwan's dishes, please see my photologue on KL's glorious food.

    Chicken with Mushroom rice at Madam Kwans

    If you would like to try local food without the sight of sweaty hawkers cooking up the yummy dishes, you can try Madam Kwans at KLCC or Midvalley Megamall. The enviroment is that of an old kopitiam or coffeeshop but it's clean and comfortable. The service is fast and your order will arrive within 15 minutes. There are a variety of local dishes on the menu from chicken rice to asam laksa noodles. Unfortunately, prices are not like the hawker's but you get a good selection of near authentic cooking in a nice enviroment.

    While the service is fast & friendly, I can't help feeling that the staff are rushing the patrons to eat and go. What do you expect? This place is always full especially during lunchtime and people queueing outside are hoping that you do eat & go :)

    Favorite Dish: Try the chicken rice, nasi lemak and ice tea

    Well I've been told so much about Madam Kwan's in KLCC, so I just had to go there..

    They recommended me Beef Penang coz it was a typical Penang dish and superb..
    So I tried it YIKES! I will never have that dish again! If that was a penang specialty well... then I'm not sure if I'll visit Penang...

    However my friend had something else that tasted better, it was actually OK..

    Favorite Dish: Non

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Madam Kwan's is a very popular restaurant in KLCC. So popular that at times there are people lining up to eat there.

    I personally do not find anything special about the restaurant. The food is average and the service could be better.

    But what I find most anoying is that it can get a bit loud in there.

    Favorite Dish: I tried their Nasi Lemak and fried noodle. They are okay.

    nasi lemak

    Great looking modern kopitiam setting in a comfortable restaurant. This is the kind of place that you'll probably meet friends with, come with the family once in a while or just when you have that plain craving for good nyonya chinese fusion cuisine.

    Favorite Dish: Nasi Bojari is a type of indonesian coloured rice that comes with assam prawns, beef rendang and deep fried chicken drumsticks.

    Or give the Nasi Lemak a try ! it's rice cooked with coconut milk. Usually eaten with hard boil egg, cucumber, fried anchovies & ' sambal ' - chilli

    For desserts, there's the typical ice campur, cendol, bubur cha-cha or sago gula melaka to complete your nyonya melaka dinner experience.

    Great Place for Malaysian Food

    If you are looking for a nice place to try our local dishes, Madam Kwan is the perfect place. They have all sorts of Malaysian food from chinese chicken rice to indian fish head curry and malay nasi lemak. Better be there early and try avoiding lunch and dinner hours or you might have to wait in line.

    Favorite Dish: Nasi Lemak, Nasi Bojari, Fish Head Curry(really really big serving for the fish head curry....if you are going to order this dish, get a bigger table). For desserts: Cendol, Sago and Ice Kacang
