An Evening At D Empire, Art of Cuisine at The Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur started operations in September 2007 and continues to be the premier shopping destination in the heart of groovy Bukit Bintang. It has over 550 outlets offerings the latest in lifestyle services and items, and with a quarter of these outlets devoted to F&B, you can never go hungry here. At their invitation, Everyday Food I Love visited D Empire the latest restaurant to grace the Pavilion.

D Empire @ The Pavilion
Lot 6.33 and 6.34, Level 6, The Pavilion KL
Business Hours 10am - 10pm
D Empire is large and spacious, with a classy furnishings. It even has a private function room big enough for 10 in which diners may enjoy a little privacy as they dine and indulge the palate. The people here are also very warm and attentive to your needs, lending a very comfortable ambience to the restaurant. Its location on the 6th floor also ensures that you are able to dine in peace and away from the hustle and bustle of people constantly moving about in the mall.
We met with Chef Dallan Tan, and found him an amiable person who is both dedicated at his craft and experienced in the FnB industry for many years. He spoke about his many passions in cooking and shared some of his experiences and views of foods in the menu. He even invited us to take a picture of him in action in the kitchen, an invitation we were quick to accept! His kitchen was very well organised, equipped with the latest in kitchen appliances and innovations to help prepare foods in a quick and timely manner. But most importantly, it was sparkling clean and with the health scares lately with vermin, we consider this a very important consideration when choosing where to dine and spend our hard earned money.
After the meet and greet session and a quick whirlwind tour of the place, we picked a nice spot to sit down, made our food orders and waited. And we did not have long to wait, as our food arrived, each on queue soon after.
Bruschetta Four Cheese
Smoked Salmon Salad
For starters, we had the Smoked Salmon Salad and the Bruschetta Four Cheese. The Bruschetta Four Cheese featured four slices of toasted bread, each with a nice topping of mixed cheese consisting of Blue cheese, Gorgonzola cheese, Mozzarella and Parmesan. The resulting flavours were, well, marvelously cheesy! As for the Smoked Salmon Salad, crispy green salads were coupled with rocket leaf, tomato cherries, apple, beet roots, toasted breads and slices of salmon. A sauceboat of Salad Lemon Dressing completed the ensemble.
Garlic Prawn Pasta
Our Entrée, fresh garlic, chillies, peeled prawns and stone clams were literally stir-fried and seared in a pan of fire! The pasta was later added in and garnished with English Parsley and Basil. It was delicious, the prawns had a nice crunchy texture and the pasta soft and chewy. The discerning diner will note that you have a choice of spaghetti or linguini as your pasta.
French-style Sea Bass Fillet
Our partner’s main was French-style Sea Bass Fillet. Fillets of fresh Seabass was pan-fried and liberally garnished with spicy coulis sauce, and was then served together with a side of seasonal salads and the Potatoes of the Day. For those of you who are not familiar, coulis is a thick sauce made from puréed and strained vegetables or fruits.
All meats and poultry are from Halal Certified Suppliers
Australian Black Angus Ribeye
The author’s selection, which also quickly became a favourite, was the Australian Black Angus Ribeye steak. The marbling on the Black Angus was up to high expectations, the ribeye itself was succulent and sapid. The meat was charbroiled and served with a serving of potatoes, although this may vary when you try it as it is the Side Dish of the Day. To add taste, you have the usual options for either the Black Pepper or Mushroom sauce..
Hazelnut Truffle
After dinner, we had dessert and it was sugar-free! Hazelnut Truffle is paired with chocolate and ice cream for an amazing last course. Again, you have a choice of ice creams; vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.
Forever Famous Mocktail - Mussolini and Shirley Temple
During dinner, we were given the opportunity to have some refreshing mocktails. You can find it under the Forever Famous Mocktail tab in the menu. For ourselves, we had the Mussolini, a fruity mix consisting of apple, lime juice and cranberry juice mocktails whereas the author tried the Shirley Temple, a zesty mocktail made of lemonade mixed with grenadine and 7-Up.
For some great foods at incredible prices, we recommend that you try the D empire. It has a nice quiet ambience that couples and quiet families can take advantage of away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the mall. We will definitely make a return visit again someday!
