Claypot Station @ Dataran Sunway, Petaling Jaya

Some time back, this used to be one of my favourite restaurants and we used to frequent here at least once a month but somehow over the past year, we have not been here even once. There is no specific reason for that. Perhaps I have started exploring other restaurants that I have somehow forgotten about this. Just that today, I suddenly thought about this restaurant and decided to head here for dinner. Restaurant Claypot Station is located in Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara. As the name suggests, they mainly specialise in claypot dishes and most if not all of their dishes are served in claypots. Some of their specialty dishes are their Fa Tiu Chicken, Claypot Pork Belly, Claypot Wild Boar Curry and also Black Pepper Frog. These used to be my favourite dishes then that I used to order most often whenever I came here. Coming back here today after a year, I decided to try some other dishes and I truly hope that their taste remains the same as before.

Some of their Signature Dishes

Interior of the Restaurant
The restaurant has not changed much over the years. It occupies a single lot and they also place tables outside along the walkway for customers who prefer the outdoor seats. Surprisingly, it was quite packed today. Usually it is not this packed but it could also be that I came here for dinner at 7 pm instead of my usual time of about 9 pm. Despite having a huge crowd seated both indoor and outdoor, they were pretty swift in attending to customers. Just like before, all their workers are from Cambodia and they are extremely hard working. Very efficient in attending to customers needs and the orders are strictly taken by the owners, a husband and wife couple, only. There has been no change to their menu and it remains the same. They have a good variety here, but sometimes the preparation may remain the same, but just prepared with a different meat. Overall, they have good choices to choose from. As always, the ordering was very fast. Another thing that I like about this restaurant is the bright lights and fantastic ventilation. They always have these high power industrial blowers to keep the restaurant cool. Another thing worth mentioning here is that they guarantee that their food is free from MSG. 

Herbal Tea @ RM 1.00
We kept our drinks very simple. Both of us went for the Herbal Tea and it was quite decent here. At RM 1.00 per mug, it is quite reasonable. 

Rice @ RM 1.00
A plate of rice is also chargeable at the same price of RM 1.00 which again I find it to be quite reasonable. 

Kam Heong Chicken @ RM 13.90
All the dishes here comes in three sizes and this is the smallest. In fact, all the dishes that we ordered tonight were small. For the two of us, this portion size is sufficient. The amount served for this small portion was really good and worth the price paid. The chicken was also lavish and it was well spiced. There were loads of onions and black pepper in the dish which is good. The only setback with this dish is that it was too oily. I would rate this dish at 8/10 .

Sour & Spicy Vege @ RM 8.00
This was another good dish. The portion was small but how much of this pickled vegetable can one eat at a single seating. I liked this dish very much. It was salty and spicy. Great combination. I would rate this dish at 9/10 .

Claypot Tofu @ RM 8.00
Another great dish here. It came with loads of Tofu, Carrots, three different types of Mushrooms and vegetables. The sauce was light but good. Both of us enjoyed this dish and I would strongly recommend this dish. I would rate this at 9/10 . 

This was very much our dinner for tonight and it was a satisfying meal. Overall, I am glad that this restaurant still serves good food and I find the price to be very reasonable if not cheap. I should definitely return here soon to try my other favourite dishes that I used to have before.
