Noble Mansion, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia…upscale, urban, and understated in all the right ways

Noble Mansion is a Chinese restaurant that turns out Chinese dishes influenced by modern techniques and presentation. The décor is a distinctly modernized space outfitted with flowery upholstery, gilded ceilings and auspicious Chinese proverbs on shiny, black lacquered walls. In short, my expectations were high, and they inched even higher the first time I walked into the polished, modern space in this restaurant in Plaza 33. Noble Mansion is chic, but not snooty. Upscale, but comfy.

Noble Mansion is more than funky fare and presentation. Light, distinct, memorable flavors shine through much of the menu that merits attention: the artfully prepared roasted duck served with plum sauce & crispy glutinous rice explode in fits and bursts on the tongue, while the steamed fresh water prawns is equally noteworthy. Gorgeous. Their signature hokkien mee is a foodie’s wet dream.

Add the ambience to this a standard of food, which matches the best in the city, and you now know what the next generation of classic Chinese restaurants will look like. It says, in short, that we’ve arrived. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
