Good briyani rice. Plain Basmati rice cooked with saffron and touch of spices and herbs.

Lamb Rogan Josh. Lamb curry. Lamb cubes cooked in yogurt based curry with a touch of coriander seeds.

Dragon-i Restaurant @ Aeon Bukit Tinggi Klang

Dragon-i restaurant is famous for their Shanghainese dishes and Shanghainese steamed meat dumplings also known as xiao long bao. If you like dumpling and to watch la mian (hand-pulled) noodles making process, then this is the place for you to have your meal. Located at ground floor of Aeon Bukit Tinggi Shopping Complex, Dragon-i have quite an extensive menu to try on.

Taste:8/10(Good. Their xiao long bao is good and I like the hot soup inside the dumpling which is tasty. Fried radish cake with XO sauce is good with wok heat taste. However, fried rice is on the low side as its a bit tasteless. The hand-pulled noodles is just nice).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. Price wise, this restaurant is on the high side of Chinese meal. MYR18.00 for pork rib noodles, MYR9.80 for four pieces of xiao long bao. Fried rice at MYR18.00 and fried radish cake at MYR18.00. The total bill amounted MYR90.00)

Xiao long bao (Shanghainese steamed meat dumplings). Savour the soup and eat it with ginger and vinegar. Tasty dumpling.

Fried radish cake with XO sauce. This meal is good and tasty as well.

Fried rice. I don't quite like this dish as its tasteless and without the wok flavour which good fried rice should have.

Pork rib which comes with la mian noodles soup. I found out this pork rib is oily but taste wise is good and well marinated.
