Me and my friends came here for dinner and the dinner was unfogettable and i must say that this restaurant is the best to try DIM SUM. Also, Staffs were very inviting and welcoming as well.

Popular with Georgetown locals and increasingly, over recent years, tourists. Order off menu or wait for the dim sum trolleys to come round and point to what you want. ( The lemon curd tarts are a top pick). Prices have crept up a bit but still a good value option.

I could not stop eating - some of the best dim sum I have ever had. Open air, bustling restaurant with little "aunties" serving - not only a great experience but a great culinary treat!

We stuffed ourselves silly for just £7 a head. You can have dim sum, a la carte or, as we did, a combo. The restaurant served the best food I have ever eaten in Penang. It is open on two sides but there are lots of fans to cool you down. As with mist dim sum restaurants, trollies wheel past... More

This dim sum breakfast place is vey popular for both locals and tourists; and I understand why it should not be missed when you visit Georgetown. Ambience and services are quite locals, we can enjoy food by picking what we want from varied food small baskets n plates placed on the trolleys run by senior waitresses. They were all tasty...

This place is very famous with Dim sum which I really like to taste on this place. I came with my friends and they loved it. Will come there again and try some other dishes.

Old Chinese always said that, they need "yam Cha" for a good day strat. this is a good place for Chinese breakfast. Dim Sum is not quite good looking (compare with Hong Kong and Canada) but taste is very good. It must be order a pot of Chinese tea and eat fresh dim sum. what a great morning! btw, shop... More

Always think of Tai Tong when dim sum is in mind, only drawback is the lack of parking spaces along that street. Fresh, delicious and affordable at the heart of town.

Good for breakfast or evening visit. Have varieties of food to choose from and price is very reasonable. Can be busy at times, need to pick your timing well. Excellent place for walk around after the meal.
