After Jann and Quan’s Kitchen, Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown is set to open its third F&B venue Lady Yi’s Tea House.
Lady Yi’s Tea House is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city as you sip on traditional tea and nibble on an assortment of kuih while catching up with your friends and family.
The tea house is adjacent to the Hotel Lobby on Level 7 is an intimate and serene hideaway from Kuala Lumpur with sweeping views across the Chinatown neighbourhood.
Floor to ceiling windows stream natural light, a sharp contrast to the intricate dark wood panels and bold colours of the patterned tiles, plush furnishings, and framed phoenix painting.
Going beyond the confines of serving tea, the tea house invites guests to explore the rich Peranakan culture through a laudable selection of curated teas and fine Peranakan-inspired delicacies.
