Grand Imperial Chinese Restaurant (喜粤) - Bangsar Shopping Centre

It was a busy weekend with my cousin brother's wedding; the Chinese cultural ceremony as well as the dinner at Grand Imperial BSC. Many congratulations to Wayne and Jacqueline!

Thanks to Waze GPS navigation we managed to escape the jam en route to the mall at Bangsar. Parking in Bangsar Shopping Centre is ok but the entrance to the mall is rather inconvenient as there's always lots of people waiting for the lift during peak hours (on a Saturday!), escalators are scarce. We ended up taking the stairs instead.

Went up to the 3rd floor and there was the Grand Imperial restaurant tucked in one corner. The guests reception area is in front at the entrance of the restaurant at one side while the wedding dinner is at the back of the restaurant and you will walk pass the walk-in patron tables to get there. The banquet hall is very very cozy with great ambiance, glittering chandeliers, comfortable lighting, new and comprehensive table setting.

Here comes the bride+groom. Menu. Complimentary wedding favor (ROKA chocolate).

Well the hall is great, lighting all good, well decorated stage but too bad the few pillars in it would block the view of some guests. Our table was directly beside the stage and I could not see anything projected on the screen. I think it needs a bit of re-organizing and arranging the front tables further away from the stage.

Many commented that the food here is awesome. To me the wedding food at the Grand Imperial BSC was OK to good. I loved the four season combination platter - the varieties are somewhat refreshing. the roasted village chicken is strangely not tough and quite tender. Love the rich taste of the well seasoned meat. The fish steamed with ginger and preserved vege was a good match and very yummy. The tiger prawn and noodle dishes were normal.

The shark fin soup was quite bland, the shredded chicken and bamboo pith were chewy with not much flavor. Did not like the loh hon cai (vegetarian dish) which was not braised well, the ingredients have not fused into the broth.

It was a fun night being entertained by wedding emcee Desmond Ting who stole the show with his jokes and the guests broke up laughing. He was very spontaneous.

My best mate had his wedding dinner at Grand Imperial a couple months back. It was a rainy Friday night and the traffic and the rain resulted in SO many people being late. Even worse was that some of the latecomers couldn't find any parking in BSC and decided to leave. And there are a lot of thick pillars so quite a few guests couldn't see anything happening on stage. Food wasn't that good either, but then again that does tend to happen to all restaurants where the logistics of having to cook for hundreds of people at once does affect the taste/quality somewhat.

Was attended by an arrogant manager too. Once she heard that I only wanted 20 tables, her face change and when I told her I'm interested in the cheapest menu for now. There are many many pillars the view is pretty bad. I dont like that place. Parking also a nightmare. Anyway, the place looks nice IF you can get the whole restaurant. If not, they will put up a partition. Your guests will be at the back of the restaurant and walk-in customers will be at the front. Your reception will be at the front. So it's kind of weird that your guests will then need to use a side door (a small corridor) to go into your venue. The stage is too small.
