Visited Foh San Restaurant once again for a light meal of dim sum. There are also a number of dim sum places nearby but they are more like cramped, stuffy coffee shops and do not appeal to me. Foh San, however, is a much nicer,...More

Always enjoyed the dim sum when I am here. Good variety of dim sum. Dim sum are steam to order. Can be overly crowded on the weekend. Need to book the table early.

It's clean, fast and has a good variation of dim sum. The only set back is that it's usually packed and it's hard to get a parking space for car.

Customer pay more for better renovated restaurant. On average 0.80 to 1.50 per basket more expensive than their competitors. For example, they charged RM1.70 per pax for hot water while Ming Court just RM0.90. Lots of dim sum varieties to choose but the quality &...More

I have loved my breakfasts (and lately lunches) at Foh San since 1977. It is the only restaurant that has stayed loyal to the concept and cooking method of Cantonese dim sum. Highly recommended.
