Next to the Jaya 33 is a newly-built office building called the The Plaza @ Jaya 33, which houses the latest concept restaurant of the famous The Oriental Group of Restaurants - the Noble Mansion. Housing 4 different sections - The Lantern, The Bamboo Courtyard, The Terracotta Rooms and The Grand Hall - Noble Mansion is created with a modern interpretation of a Chinese traditional mansion in mind.
Thinking of checking out this new Chinese restaurant, I brought my parents for dinner. As we were pretty early, the restaurant is pretty quiet except for the busy wait-staffs setting up the tables.
For starters, I ordered the Vegetarian Spring Roll (RM 8). This light snack looks very adorable and beautifully presented. It is very refreshing as it is cold and juicy with a lot of vegetables wrapped in a thin fried beancurd skin and topped with a slice of cherry tomato. Simple but very flavourful and appetizing.
My mum insisted to order the Claypot Eggplant with egg and crabmeat (RM 28). Visually, it looked a bit bland but thankfully, the actual taste was more appealing. With a raw egg dropped into a sizzling hot claypot, it gives a nice smooth texture to the gravy. On top of that, there were plenty of fat, chunky crabmeat among the soft, sweet eggplants.
We then have the Sizzling Fried Rice with Chicken Cubes (RM 28) - not really the exact name as I forgotten to jot down the name. The flavours were quite balanced and the rice has a nice wok-hei, especially the nice fragrant and crispy burnt rice at the bottom, which my mum adores very much. Eaten together with their special dried chilli sauce, it was lovely. The portion, on the other hand, was shockingly huge - one portion size can feed around 4-5 person.
Next is the Braised Ee-fu Noodles with Prawn Roe (RM 20). The ee-fu noodles were springy and has a nice chewy texture. The flavourful noodles were sprinkled with some paprika-like dried prawn roe. In my opinion, I didn't feel as though the prawn roe contributed much to the taste. Nevertheless, I still love this noodle dish as it was not too dry. However, this dish is slightly oily towards the end.
The food were indeed delicious and worth every cent paid. It lived up to my expectations. Service was very good and attentive but I hope it was not because we were one of the few early diners for the evening. As we were seated at the Grand Hall by the windows, we had a very nice of the PJ neighbourhood.
The main hall can accommodate about 31 tables, but there are various small rooms available which can fit small gatherings of about 1 - 5 tables.
