The first time I get to savor a proper, big, real abalone was when my sis gave us a treat at then Ah Yat Abalone Swiss Garden Hotel. It was indeed a fulfilling meal with quite a hefty bill. The abalone was so succulent and the sauce so flavorful, I thought one piece wasn't enough.
It didn't strike me to have wedding reception there until I got an invitation for one. I imagined it must be super expensive. However this is not really the case. The menu set starts from RM638 per table (with an abalone dish). The food, tip top. I loved the stewed whole abalone with mushroom and the fried rice with abalone sauce. The prawn wasn't that tasty, it's probably the cooking style which I find unappealing. The banquet hall was not very big and the tables were arranged rather close to each other, not much walking space. I have no complaints about the service which is what you can anticipate from a standard Chinese restaurant.
