Steamboat is best enjoyed with a group of friends, so I gathered the usual suspects last weekend and eight of us went to the relatively new Damansara Village Steamboat opposite ProJET gas station near Atria at Damansara Jaya.

Damansara Village Steamboat (pulau ketam style)
very nice set up and excellent ambiance

This place is more than just a simple restaurant, there’s a little pool for kids to catch guppies (longkang fish) from, some furry animals, Iguana, and a giant tortoise on one side, a miniature vegetable farm, and even a guy twisting balloons for free. At least this local restaurant is catching up to McDonald’s concept of making the kids happy first.

As for the restaurant itself, there are indoor and outdoor areas, with everything set up in an open concept. No need for air conditioning when you have high ceiling, no wall, and plenty of fans. The tables are not arranged too close together either, very spacious and comfortable.

the standard steamboat set

For the eight of us, we ordered five portion of the standard steamboat set (assorted fish balls, prawns, mussels, eggs, bamboo clams, noodle, and vegetables). To complete the meal and add some variety, we also asked for 300gm of live tiger prawn (still jumping on the plates!), straw mushroom, 1kg of giant clam, and a pretty good size batfish that looks and tastes pretty much like pomphret.

the extras: tiger prawns, clams, fish, straw mushroom

As this is a Pulau Ketam style steamboat, we go for the traditional clear soup with some herbal ingredients. The sambal provided at this place was pretty good too.

We started out boiling the soup with some seafood, fish balls, and noodle for the first round. Finished everything in less than a few minutes; and proceed with the second round of giant clams and others; then it was the fish; and after that the live prawns; with the final round of more noodles and egg. The soup got better and better as the essence of seafood ingredients got sucked into it. It was a very fulfilling meal, fresh ingredients with very good soup. The food went well with the fresh coconut juice and a bottle of toddy we ordered.

the happy diners

The dinner came to slightly less than RM 30 per person. I would consider that a very good value for the ambiance and great food we had. A place worth visiting again.

  1. hehe wanted to invite you earlier , but guess sooner or later you will go. It’s partially owned by my BIL (http://patrickteoh.blogspot.com/) + SIL (http://lauraadam.blogspot.com/).

  2. sasha,

    Do I get a discount next time? :P

  3. I HEART PATRICK TEOHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!111111111

    oh yah, dinner was good :)

  4. Hiyoh! Don’t say I am big boss la cos not true isnit. It just that sometimes I work there as an unpaid waiter lor. But thanks for visiting Damansara Village and I am glad you all enjoyed yourselves.

  5. i like to eat steamboat too..but 30 per person, is it worth of it? i still like the steamboat buffet in sunway ..haha

  6. martin,
    The one in Sunway (Yuen) is definately one of the better ones as well. However, comparing this to yuen is a bit like comparing gardania’s bread to bread story.

  7. But…it’s still steamboat 0_0

  8. ya food was good. “wah kam tai ah!!!” always good to see the bill came out less than the majority of our estimates. burp

  9. Fulltime Mom

    is this restaurant pork free?

  10. KY u ask him yrself la..

    Patrick: i say partially only ma.. I also work in my own rest but gotto pay for my own food and no pay also.. :(

  11. Damansara Village is PORK FREE. Yes RM30.00 these days is a lot of money. But you will only spend that if you order the fresh “live” seafood that we are known for. If you opt for the standard steamboat it is only RM18 per person. Still steamboat, Shaolin? Well…I guess it is but a steamboat dining experience is only as good as what you put in it. And who you bring along I guess. Places that serve steamboat buffets are definitely great value for money. We don’t because we want diners to taste what good, fresh seafood tastes like in a good steamboat soup stock. Wah! Can make this into advert la. LOL

  12. Patrick I’m just jealous I wasn’t there, that’s all :D

  13. woooohoo.. Patrick, ur comment’s advert make my decision of going there today! Yeah.. today!! Thanks to KY for this recommendation post! :)

  14. [...] Itchy for steamboat again, the gang and I decided to try the “original” pulau ketam steamboat at SS15, Subang Jaya. The name of the restaurant is Bee Ho (美好海鲜火锅之家). This is of course, the same style as offered at the Patrick Teoh’s Damansara Village steamboat. [...]

  15. KY,
    …….feel so hungry when at your website.

    Have you try the glass chicken feet at Uncle Lai Shop at Sunway Commercial Centre, near Bandar Utama, P.J.

    Its just infront of Gold Mountain Restorant (translate one).

  16. Hi KY. I have linked this page to the Damansara Village blogsite http://www.damansaravillage.blogspot.com

    I hope you don’t mind. Thank you.

    Patrick

  17. Patrick,

    Oh it’s my pleasure. You can even use my Map. :P

  18. [...] I went to eat steamboat in Damansara Village Steamboat (click on the link for pics, map and address of the place, somebody did a food review of it liao, click here for actual site) on sat with some gym buddies right after work. It was raining heavily when I reached and it was a nice touch from the restaurant to lend out umbrellas for the guests. My grouse is that there are too few parking bays around. The steamboat restaurant is situated right opposite the Projet petrol kiosk in Damansara Jaya. From Damansara Village, you can head down the road to Pantai Seafood. The place has nice ambience and Cyborg couldn’t stop singing praises of the place. Besides the usual table arrangements, there were huts around to offer privacy for small party groups of people. Cyborg booked a hut as she says that the leaves will drop into the soup if we sat outside, which was a wise choice since it rained cats and dogs that night. [...]

  19. [...] Check out .. KY eats at Damansara Village Steamboat. Don’t he makes it look even better ??! Or you can check out their website too for directions to get there. [...]

  20. Cheers! I didn’t know they had Steamboat! :D I’m going!

  21. Interessante Informationen.

  22. [...] the past 2 years, my family and I have been to Damansara Village at Damansara Jaya for steamboat reunion dinner over CNY, and if a place passes my mom’s taste test, it will [...]

  23. I invited a very dear friend from US to dine in your restaurant. When we finished our meal, my husband paid for the bill. I was talking to my dear friend. However after we went home, i discovered that your restaurant double charge me for an extra set 18.90. 18.90 to me is just a small amount but i don’t like the restaurant cheating the customer. How can we (3 persons)order 2 set of 18.90? We ordered so many extra food like prawn, mussels etc apart from 18.90 set. I mean the cashier should know that a table of 3 persons will not order 2 set of the same things. I will not dine there anymore. WATCH OUT IF U EVER DINE THERE, CHECK YOUR BILL. DON’T BE THE VICTIM!

    • kk: i think that’s probably just a mistake, I know Patrick personally and don’t think he’ll allow something he runs (tho not full time) to be this shady. :)

  24. How much would it cost to dine there? If we order those extras is it expensive? they look so delicious

    • raybanmy: it’s anywhere from RM 20 per person onwards, depending on what you order. not pricy for the quality of food you get, really.

  25. I just went yesterday. nice food and nice environment.
    the fish is very nice, must try
