Genting Palace Restaurant

Posted by Timothy Low under Genting Highland


Genting. The City of Entertainment.

I believe everyone’s heard of this tagline. At least from the holiday perspective. I recently found out these facts. This hilltop resort features 6 hotels with more than 10,000 hotel rooms (I can only imagine the amount of bedsheets to change .. I have one at home and I am having problem with it…), over 90 dining outlets (yes foodies … big nine oh!), 80 plus shopping outlets (must people go all the way up there to shop?) and of course the theme parks which features more than 50 fun rides (did I also mention scary?).

With all that, it’s no wonder the resort has won many, many local and international tourism related awards.

Genting Highland.

I love Genting Highland for it’s cool, refreshing air especially in the morning … and yet, I hardly visit this place. I still remember when I was younger … me and my friends used to organize group trips to Genting Highland. We would charter a bus, then sell tickets to fellow school-mates and friends … and ended up getting a free trip to Genting Highland, with free accommodation as well! Anyway, those were the days …


Nowadays … planning a trip to Genting Highland seemed like a chore. Probably the thought of traveling all the way there (despite only approximately 45 minutes drive) was troublesome and stuffs are not exactly economy friendly in times like these. Despite the fact, my family and I did made a trip to Genting Highland recently … all because we got complimentary tickets to watch “Dreamz”, a show by Genting. I didn’t particularly enjoy the show … it was a little slow … a lot of singing and I guess it was a fusion between a magic show and a circus, complete with motorbikers in a circular cage and live animals!

What I did enjoy during my trip there was the food. Well … I know what you think! Food is probably the last thing you want to talk about if you visit Genting Highland .. simply because food it VERY COSTLY there. Anyway …. must be my lucky day because I found a reasonably priced restaurant in Genting Highland!

It’s called Hainan Kitchen which is located at the First World Hotel in Genting Highland. Besides being reasonably priced, they serve decently good dishes as well. And trust me .. high up in the mountains, you would appreciate good food. And have I forgotten to mention they serve good piping hot Hainanese Coffee? In the cold, cold air … sipping the hot, hot coffee was just awesome. Felt like the coffee was perfectly brewed. And of course … with good coffee, char siu pau is a must. BBQ Pork buns or more commonly known as Char Siu Pau is a local delight, favored by many. And I must say … the Char Siu Pau here is nonetheless, quite delicious.


Char Siu Pau aside, we also tried the Hainanese Noodle. This …. as mentioned by Mei Yen, was quite disappointing. Some said it’s tasteles, as for me … I just find it plain. I mean …. the only way you could down this dish is if you are really starving. I rest my case on this one.

Oh the whole, I find Hainan Kitchen in Genting Highland to be acceptable, among the worst. So the next time you visit Genting Highland, I would recommend this place although … here are some ‘unfavorable’ reviews from other fellow bloggers.
