Lucky Sichuan Restaurant @ Kota Damansara

Today is my mothers birthday and as such, we have planned to go out for dinner and celebrate. As I was wondering where to take them, I decided to go for Sichuan food instead as that is a variety which they may hove not tried before. I was made to understand that the food from Sichuan province is usually very spicy.

With that genre in mind and after getting some recommendations from friends, we head out to this restaurant in Sunway Damansara called Lucky Sichuan Restaurant. Finding the place was not difficult as it is just along the same row as Nasi Kandar Kayu and it faces the main inside street. 

Once there, we were taken up stairs to the first floor as there was five of us and all the big tables on the ground floor were occupied. The first floor seemed very posh, perhaps more often used for wedding dinners and private functions. 

After glancing the menu for some time, we made our orders. Please find the photos below.

This is Steamed Shredded Potato in Sour Sauce. Also available in Spicy Sauce @ RM 8.00 . Must try for potato lovers like me :p

This is a signature dish here. Stir Fried Chicken Sichuan Style @ RM 28.00 . Lovely taste.

Mapo of the best that I have tried @ RM 12.00 

Kung Pao Chicken @ RM 15.00 

 Stewed Pork Ball in Brown Sauce @ RM 28.00 . This was heavenly.

One thing that I would like to commend about this place is that the service is extremely efficient and they are always ready to serve you better. Usually one waitress is kept to attend specially to your table. 

Another specialty that must be tried here is the Sichuan Tea. A beautifully infused drink without the usual strong taste. Overall it was a great experience for us here and I would surely return here again soon.

Just as we were about to leave, this was a group picture which we took at the first floor for keep sake purposes. I would surely recommend anyone looking for Sichuan cuisine to this lovely place.

The address is:
No. 19, Jalan PJU 5/12, 
Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara,
47810 Petaling Jaya.

Opening Hours: 1100 - 1500 & 1800 - 2300 Daily


  1. The stir-fried chicken in Sichuan style looks really tempting!
    I am sorry I don't know much but what is Mapo Tofu?hope you can let me know

    1. Mapo Tofu is a Sichuan dish of Tofu that's cooked with chili and a bean based sauce. It's usually fermented black bean and also some minced pork. Generally quite spicy as most Sichuan dishes are spicy due to the cold weather. Normal Chinese restaurants do have this but it's not close to the original one as these specialty restaurants import their Chili's from Sichuan province. That one is extremely super spicy. Hope you get a chance to try this sometime.
