Dim sum buffet ( trolley coming at your table ) is amazing. Menu is also vast and very good . I recommend the crispy duck and pork belly . Staff is friendly and professional but most waiter speak only Chinese .

Worth making an effort to come here for a dim sum feast. (They also have a Chinese Buffett) the selection is vast and plentyful. Very tasty and reasonably priced.

Was at Marco Polo to celebrate my mil's birthday. We booked 3 tables and were given a big room with a small stage. Every set came with a free bottle of red wine. Food and service were superb, value for money. Is indeed a good...place to dine, especially to entertain guests and have functions.More

Expensive steam 筍殼魚 (English night be Bamboo Shell Fish) was over cooked! We only eat little bit but feels very hard like plastic cannot be swallow, direct complaint and return whole fish to manager - old women with short perm hair, she was dark face...and never apologized! We still have to pay amount for this over cooked steam fish in expensive total bill ! Terrible with this kind of services! I was too angry and Regret that forgot take picture to show on TripAdvisor!More

This is one of the more popular dim sum restaurants around KL. We had heard about this for quite some time but never got around to trying it... were very glad we tried the dim sum. To get tables it is helpful to arrive early....Located in Lim Foo Yong building, the restaurant has undergone recent renovations and to us did not look 'too gloomy' unlike previous reviews. The service was quite good, attentive and fun in a casual, Cantonese kind of way. The dim sum and the buns were well made and quite traditional in a Kuala Lumpur way. We enjoyed the visit, the food was tasty and I would definitely bring my friends and family again.More

Went there coz it is next to our Hotel, the Holiday Inn City Center. Deco dated, staff friendly. Tim sum was the push cart version, not many trolley. One for steam, one for fried and one dessert. Some of the items we request need 15...mins waiting time coz they run out. Good for a quick lunch, place not really crowded on a weekday lunch hour.More

Entering it's a bit gloomy and certainly more of an "old establishment" feel about it. It was not overcrowded so service was quick if somewhat " take it or leave it" with little or no smiles and welcome touches! Dim sum, also "old style" with...trolled but tasty and authentic. Not a bad experience but not noteworthy either!More

This restaurant give me an impression of a old school type of restaurant but after this visit, I'm so awe and impressed that the building has gone through some renovation works....Upper floor was the Marco Polo Chinese Restaurant that offer some really superb good food.

Short of staff during lunch hour, only two carts (steam and fried) to serve over 50 tables in the huge hall - thus have to wait very long for the food cart to come back to your table. Ordered basic signature dishes such as siew...mai, char siew Pau, har Kau but was told finished and waiting for the kitchen to make new one. Tim Sum contains a lot of msg too.More

Yes the private rooms and the huge main dining room are air conditioned . You might want to take a light cardigan or wear a thick long sleeved shirt as it can be quite cold. Hope that helps answer your question.
