I think Li Yen, Marco Polo and Kam Hin are the best. Kedai Kopi Mee Bon standard have dropped compared to last time.

I think there is a big difference in Malaysian taste for dim sum compared to Hongkies or Cantonese people. In the above list, only Li Yen will just make it into authentic dim sum. The rest are just so-so with some at the end of the list even considered unpalatable. If authentic dim sum is what you crave, then head over to Grand Imperial at Plaza Damas. On par with normal Cantonese restaurants in HK or Guangzhou.
