This is a place where you can find the Chinese food in the Indian dominated area and a good place to dine with friends.

Few dishes were good...but overpriced. Lady boss recommends new but substandard dishes so that she could charge at a very high price. Customers are not stupid! Now, closed for good!

I may be bad a judging Chinese food, but I was not impressed, and the prices were very high, and I could not see, what we were really paying for what, before we got the bill. Probably easier, if you are local or Chinese.

This is a very old restaurant. Previously it was located under the bridge ( Brickfield ) in a shed where we can observed the old chef preparing his popular Lemon Chicken. He has a very good skill in de-boning the chicken. Now its run by his granddaughter. We ordered chicken, Fish head curry, Seaweed soup, Steamed Egg & BBQ Pork.... More

Found this place by accident. A friend brought me to a shop next door to this. Recently manage to try it out. Food quality is good. Not that expensive provided you know what to order. Favourite is the fish head, which can be done either with curry or gravy with bean curd and vegetable. Service, well, rather slow as they... More

No complains over the services and quality of food. Price maybe a little on the higher side but that could be inflated because it's KL and also due to the limited number of Chinese restaurants available around that side of Brickfields. On the upside: Seafood curry and tiger skin pork are a must try Nice, kinda quiet and a decent... More

This is a place that many years ago people stopped by to have an excellent home cooked meal. Today people pass this place and go home or else where to enjoy a worthy hot meal. The service is truly bad, the gaze from the owner is fierce like a tiger, as if not welcoming you at all. Therefore, many customers... More

I've tried Kailan and Tiger Pork... the pork belly in my opinion is not good and quite expensive... it cost 20RM per plate

The food at WOO LAN are really flavorful and have remarkable depth. The Streamed Fish - topped with generous amount of garlic, ginger e.g. and other secret recipe, has always been one of my favorite. The flavorsome dishes that WOO LAN presents and the 100% freshness of the fish each time I am there has well deserved its reputation. I... More

Good value and tasty dishes that we go back every time are seafood curry, black guinness ribs, and spicy salted fish & pork casserole. The menu is varied - and every 'new' dish we have tried has always been consistently to our taste. Service is quick. Parking is difficult when there is a Hindu festival - being near a temple....
