Description: Way Modern Chinois is a classy, sensual avant-garde modern cuisine restaurant specializing in contemporary Chinese / Asian cuisine. A labour of love in many ways, Way Modern Chinois is the brainchild of a boutique property developer and Asian private equity investor, both of whom are avid foodies and Chinese food enthusiasts. In Mandarin, Way means "unique" or "one and only". The essence of Way is modern fine dining Chinese cuisine served with a subtle twist and sophistication. The entrance is a unique lift door which opens and transports the diner to a world of exquisite indulgence.

“Way to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I love the interior and the little details of the restaurant from the exquisite lift-like door to the cutleries and the choice of plates!

Food is great - It was worth breaking my diet for the snow bun, the crusted sweet bread goes so well with the bbq chicken! The xiao long bao is also one of a kind as they had shaped the top of the bao to be straw liked so you can just slurp the goodness out of it! How clever!

They also have a range of Asian inspired cocktails and I love the White Tiger which is creatively made with roasted rice!

“Best Siao Long Bao in Malaysia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We had our company lunch at Way Modern Chinois and what an experience that was! We were served by friendly staffs and our favourite dishes were pretty much everything we ordered!

The Siao Long Bao was just simply A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I personally liked how they have made it easy for us to slurp the rich tasty chicken-broth Siao Long Bao from the top without having to burn my tongue! I wish I had the whole stack to myself! They were super addictive!!

Then came the Truffle Roast Duck, Crispy Lion Fish and Crab Roe Fried Rice! The Truffle Roast Duck was unforgettable and we also had the Sze Chuan Fried Soft Shell Crab that was super crispy and tasty and not overly spicy!

We had such a good time eating together in such a beautiful and classy restaurant! We love it that it is a Pork-Free Restaurant that we can have such a good meal together with our Chinese, Indian and Muslim colleague!

“Superb dim sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

The dim sum here is probably the best I've ever tasted and well presented in fine dining fashion. All the dim sum dishes we tried were good. Since I didn't do the ordering, I don't know all the dishes we tried. The char siew bao was excellent, made with an unusual dough which was slightly crisp on the outside and soft as silk on the inside. The porridge with truffle oil was the stand out. Sinfully rich; make sure you leave room for this.

We tried some of their non dim sum dishes but these were rather ordinary. The roast duck was fine but was too full to enjoy it by then,

We had durian crepes for dessert and this was delicious. Not to be missed if you're a durian lover.

Highly recommended for their dim sum. I wouldn't bother about their main dishes.
