Gu Yue Tien 2014 Chinese New Year Set Review

gu yue tien 2014


This is the last time I’m going to write or dine on Gu Yue Tien. The entire Chulan Square will be demolished and Chef Frankie calls it a day. Yes, Gu Yue Tien will be closing at the end of February 2014. The chef said he will be taking a year break and let’s see how it goes. Before that, you still can book their Chinese New Year sets or ala carte before end of next month.



There is no introduction to this restaurant as it is one of my family’s favourite places to dine for Chinese cuisine. This year, we celebrated pre-Chinese New Year dinner and let’s look at the feast we had. This Gu Yue Tien 2014 Chinese New Year Set is priced at RM 888++

This is one of the healthiest “yee sang” ever created. The common ingredients are changed to vegetables and it didn’t disappoint as well.
The yee sang is very refreshing and I loves the taste of it. The balance of flavour is good and not forgetting the freshness of the Norwegian salmon. This is definitely one of the best yee sang around!

First of all, you can request other options of soup available from the restaurant if you do not want to take shark fins. There are also set menus without shark fins at Gu Yue Tien.

For those who interested in this shark’s fin, this won’t disappoint you at all. That’s the respond I heard from those who tasted.

I substituted the shark’s fin soup with the pork intestine soup. Equally good but different taste.

If you need a change for your Chinese New Year dinner menu, your wish is granted. Instead of chicken or pork, pigeon is the least expected. Roast pigeons are very popular in Hong Kong and you can rarely have them here. You need lots of culinary skills with your fork and knife to work on the pigeon. Thus, the pigeon is roasted to crispiness with hints of garlic flavour. If you are a pigeon lover, you will need to have two. For Chinese New Year menu set, each person will have one pigeon.

gu yue tien 2014 steamed fish

Okay sorry about the picture quality, it definitely didn’t do any justice to the fish presentation. Well, the fish is steamed to perfection and the yellow bean sauce compliments it well without overwhelming it. Within minutes, only bones are left on the plate. To taste the goodness of the fish, you need to steam it. The sauce did not overwhelm the taste of the fish and it goes really well.

This is simply beautiful. The poached sea prawns come with a huge boiling pot. As it boils, the fresh prawns are cooked and infused with the Chinese wine soup. From the picture, you can tell that those are extra large prawns and they are fresh! The result is juicy tender prawns with Chinese wine. The best way to taste the natural taste of prawns is always steam. Cooking it with strong flavours sometimes will overwhelm the natural juiciness of the prawns.

gu yue tien 2014 fried rice with wax meat

Chinese New Year dinner is incomplete without fried rice with assorted wax meat. The fried rice is well cooked and there is no short of wax meat, Chinese sausages and andouillette. I love their Chinese sausages and andouilette, they are delicious and it went well with the rice. I can have a few bowls of this and this is the best fried rice with Assorted Wax Meat I tasted for a very long time. You can tell it from the quality of the ingredients especially the wax meat, Chinese sausages and andouilette.

Chilled Sea Coconut with Longan
The set comes with chilled sea coconut with longan, a very refreshing drink. However, I still prefer their pomelo sago dessert with ice cream. You can order that ala carte.

Lastly, the pan-fried “nian gao” is the last dish and dessert of the evening. The texture is soft and topped with dried coconut flakes that create the crunchy texture.
The Chinese New Year menu set above is RM 888++ per table. It is worth every penny considering the quality and taste of the food.
Lastly, another gentle reminder that Gu Yue Tien is closing on 28th February 2014. If you have not tasted their food, you should try now and book early to avoid disappointments.
