Lai Po Heen, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur's Cantonese restaurant, has a reputation for being one of the city's top pork-free chinese eateries.

With its understated oriental decor, varied menu that spans quality dim sum offerings to banquet set dinners, as well as an experienced kitchen team, Lai Po Heen consistently delivers a great dining experience, so much so that they picked up our Best Hotel Restaurant at our first T.Dining Best Restaurants awards last year.

We take a trip downtown to speak to the restaurant's executive chef, Ricky Thein, and receive a behind-the-scenes peek on how he continues to keep customers coming back for more.
