Swiss Garden dim sum

You may have noticed in recent weeks we have been falling in love with dim sum. Thanks to some very good friends and their dim sum influence, we have been sharing a few breakfasts together.

A great dim sum brunch we had was at Swiss Garden Resort & Spa. This was on the occasion of a short stay at the resort to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary.

Really nice restaurant, clean, tidy, elegant, and best of all, quiet!

There are also private rooms within the restaurant. Maybe next time with more people we could eat in one of those!

Our very expensive apple juice

One mistake we did make was allow the waitress to persuade us to order apple juice. Who would have thought that a simple fresh apple juice would have come to RM14?! So that was RM28 added to the bill that we didn't expect!

Some of the delicious food we ordered

A few baskets of dim sum can be very filling. We ordered around 5 or 6 baskets and were completely satisfied.

Fidelia's good with chopsticks - I'm lousy! This is a charcoal bun, which the waitress told us, can only be found here at Swiss Garden Resort & Spa in Kuantan. Boy, it tasted good!

The "special" charcoal bun

The total price for our dim sum meal came to RM88, which took us by surprise a little, no thanks to the RM28 worth of apple juice!

Good quality food anyway and would love to try it again next time, perhaps just with a nice glass of warm water.


  1. I don't mind eating Swiss Garden Dim Sum again for lunch the next time we stay there!

  2. Nice restaurant, congrats on your anniversary! This is dim sum is a new food to me, never heard of it! Is that egg inside?

  4. I'm not sure how much 88RM equates to Australian dollars Duncan, but it did look rather delicious..

  5. Yes, I like that breakfast, great hotel, beautiful pictures!

  6. It looks scrumptious! I would love to be there:) Dim sum is pretty popular where I grew up (Hawaii), thanks to all the cultures that have influenced the cuisine...and I've managed to find some decent dimsum in London!

  7. That is some fancy looking apple juice.

  8. My favorite meal! Love to join you some day.

  9. That's one of my pet peeves at restaurants - encouraging you to order extras but not being upfront about the cost.

  10. The charcoal bun sounds interesting.
    Dim sum is something we too love.
