Restaurant Sin Thean D @ Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya

Restaurant Sin Thean D is the most recently opened Chinese Restaurant in Bandar Damansara Perdana. They started their business sometime in November 2013 and have very rapidly developed a crowd of their own. This restaurant is mainly run by a husband and wife couple with the help of a few foreign helpers while all the cooking is done by the husband himself. 

Restaurant Sin Thean D in Damansara Perdana

Spacious and Well Ventilated Interior

The Kitchen
This restaurant is located at the end of Jalan PJU 8/5H, directly opposite the Public Mutual office. Being a corner lot, the restaurant tends to be quite breezy at night and this keeps the restaurant cool. This is definitely an advantage to them. The layout and design is quite similar to most neighbourhood Chinese restaurants.

The Menu
Their menu is a simple two sided laminated sheet of paper but it definitely offers a good variety of vegetable, meat, poultry and seafood and their prices too are very reasonable.

Single Dishes

Noodles and Single Meal Dishes

Noodles and Single Meal Dishes
The reverse side of their menu lists a number of noodle varieties, fried rice and single dish meals . This gives a good alternative for someone who is looking at having a very simple meal and it is great that they have thought of including this option too. Once we finished browsing the menu, we had decided upon the dishes to have for tonight. Ordering was a breeze and it was the lady boss that took the orders. It is good that she speaks good English and she was able to explain our orders very clearly.

Chinese Tea @ RM 0.50

Peanut and Vegetable Soup

Better Look at the Peanuts and Vegetables
Immediately after serving the drinks, the waitress served us the above soup. At first we were stunned as we did not order that dish but only then did we realised that this soup was served to all the tables and this was provided complimentary to all customers. Usually, anything that is provided complimentary is just above average and sometimes can be bad but to my surprise, this soup was nice and very well flavoured.In fact, it was a much better Peanut and Vegetable Soup compared to the ones that I had paid for in some restaurants. I would rate the above soup at 8.5/10 .

Stewed Tofu with Shenmiji in Abalone Sauce @ RM 13.00

Closer Look at the Dish
The above Stewed Tofu with Shenmiji in Abolone Sauce was definitely a very well prepared dish. The Tofu itself was extremely fresh and the Shenmiji along with the vegetables were also very fresh. It has been a long time that I had a dish that served very fresh ingredients like this. The Tofu was very deliciously prepared and the freshness of the vegetables were so evident that they tasted sweet with every bite despite the slightly salty base sauce. Overall an excellent dish. I would rate the above dish at 9/10.

Steamed Minced Pork with Pickled Vegetables @ RM 12.00

Closer Look
This was truly a marvelous dish. I just loved the way the minced pork was steamed with the pickled vegetables and slices of garlic along with some soy sauce on the base. The juices from the pork, pickled vegetables and garlic were intact in the dish and the soy sauce added a great flavour to it. Definitely a highly recommended dish. I would rate this dish at 9.5/10.

Steamed Talapia Fish with Bean paste and Chili Padi @ RM 30.00

Better Look at the Paste
This dish was a little disappointing. It was not that the taste was bad but simply because the paste was a little too thick and limited and with that, it was insufficient to cover the whole fish. After finishing two thirds of the fish, you would find that there is no more paste and you would have to eat the steamed fish without the paste which invariably tastes quite bland. I would only rate this at 6/10.

Buttermilk Chicken @ RM 15.00

Delicious Chunks of Chicken
The Buttermilk Chicken was another well prepared dish. It tasted quite similar to the Buttermilk Prawns except that the meat used here is chicken. It had a good blend of sweetness with a spicy aftertaste to it and the chicken chunks were fried to perfection. I would rate this dish at 9/10.

On the whole, the food served here is quite good and I am very happy with the prices charged. They definitely are quite reasonable compared to the other players here in Damansara Perdana and the food quality too meets expectations and in some dishes, surpasses it. Definitely a highly recommended restaurant.
