Time Out says

Note: The Prince is now closed.

This Chinese restaurant in 1 Mont Kiara mall may have a modern outlook and design, but its menu offers classic Cantonese dishes that are out to please. Standard comfort food such as the silky soft steamed eggs, chicken steamed in dong gui (or female ginseng), and the steamed fish fillet in bean paste are well executed. Plus, The Prince is known for its nutritious double boiled soups as well as Brussels sprouts sautéed in olive oil.

However, the restaurant really shines with dishes that veer away from tradition. Take the sweet and sour pork for example. The usual minced meat balls are replaced with strips of pork belly rolled up into balls, creating an airy, light and slightly crispy texture that’s very addictive. Pork belly – or rather bacon as it's sliced thin – seems to be their strength here, with this versatile meat taking on many forms:  stir-fried in butter sauce; torched at the table and served with punchy garlic dip; steamed with bean paste; stir-fried in kam heong sauce; and fried till crisp and drizzled with sticky sesame sauce.
