One place that I do visit couple of times on my friends cafe in Subang Empire is Vanilla Place that located in front of Toys R Us, not till recently I got an invitation to sample a Chinese restaurant in Empire Subang Hotel, Di Wei. That make me scratch my head, that do a hotel actually exist in this shopping mall?

As I walk the whole building little did I recall there is any entrance to the hotel and only realize till the day when I attend this event. There is actually a hotel in the shopping mall which the entrance is on the top floor of the shopping mall that you need to take a stairs up to the lobby.

Empire (1)

Di Wei Chinese Restaurant is located on the shopping mall wing on the first floor. It is hard for you to miss it as the decoration is very Chinese contemporary look on the entrance of it.

This would be one of the Chinese Restaurant in the Hotel that serve NON-Halal food and you can expect nice pork to be serve as before I came here, my friend already told me they serve nice Dim Sum over the weekend at a very reasonable price.

I am impress with the whole interior design that look so modern yet the touch of olden days is there. This would be the waiting area if its full house.

or even a private room for you and your guest that they have wall of Chinese Emperor era materials display along to make the ambiance.
