START the Chinese New Year up in the clouds with friends and family at Genting’s Imperial Rama Restaurant in the Highlands Hotel.

There are three CNY set menus available from Feb 9 to 24, with prices ranging from RM1,188++ to RM2,388++ for a table for 10.

During a recent menu sampling, we started off with the Shark’s Fin with Superior Stock Soup.

It is cooked with tomato, carrot, chicken, pumpkin and onion, resulting in a flavourful concoction with pepper added to provide the soup with a little kick.

Chinese chef Eric Lee said the soup was boiled twice to bring out the flavours.

Next, we were served the Fortune Dragon and Treasure Combination, which had a variety of “treasures” such as shrimp fried with salted egg and half a crispy suckling pig and some sauce.

“Due to the temperature in the highlands, it is difficult to preserve the crunchiness of the skin of the suckling pig. Thus, we pair it with fried bean curd skin to add some crunch,” Lee said.

Festive must-have: Lee with Steamed Rice with Assorted Waxed Meat in Claypot.

Many look forward to having waxed meat during CNY and the restaurant offers Steamed Rice with Assorted Waxed Meat in Claypot.

“We have to use electric stoves instead of gas stoves for safety precautions.”

“To make up for the flavour, we cook the rice with the assorted wax meat (instead of cooking it separately) so that the meat adds flavour to the rice,” he said.

The Bird’s Nest Lemongrass Jelly was not merely a sweet dessert but a healthy one too, as Lee said the lemongrass would aid digestion.

The pomelo sprinkled on top of the jelly balanced the sweetness of the dessert with bursts of tangy and sweet flavours.

Imperial Rama is a fine-dining restaurant specialising in Thai-Chinese cuisine.

The restaurant seats 188 people. There are three private rooms, which seat from 10 to 12 people each, available on first-come, first-served basis.

Vegetarian dishes are also available and the restaurant has a dress code – formal or smart casual.

Resorts World Genting has also put together five types of Yee Sang ” Abalone, Salmon, Wan Yee and Salmon or Tuna ” priced from RM46++ onwards.


End to a heavy meal: The Bird’s Nest Lemongrass Jelly is said to aid digestion.

Yee sang is available until Feb 24 at Genting Palace, Lao Di Fang entrance, Imperial Rama, Ming Ren, Good Friends Restaurant, Resort Lobby, Hainan Express at the Theme Park Hotel and Hainan Kitchen.

Recently, the Genting group added another feather in its cap when it won 17 categories, 12 main awards and six awards of excellence at the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival.

Imperial Rama won Most Popular Restaurant, Most Outstanding Appetiser of the Festival, and the Award of Excellence for Most Outstanding Cuisine at the Gala Launch; as well as joint awards with Genting’s The Olive such as Most Creative Restaurant Station at the Gala Launch, Best Marketed Restaurant of the Festival, and Most Outstanding Cuisine.
