Parking here is easy as it's next to an open car park. But its freaking expensive. RM 6 per entry. Or you can park road side. They have plenty of soup to choose from. All the dish are precook except for vegetable. Nice soup and...nice dish. Very reasonable. Will be back for sureMore

Simple place that looks a little bit dilapidated, BUT the food here is to die for! Ok to jump right in, as mentioned the place looks run down, situated a few mins walk from Berjaya Times Square (it's actually at the intersection of Jln Changkat...Thambi Dollah & Jln 1/77B) & can be mistaken for a huge carpark (that's because there's a open spaced carpark right next to it) when they aren't open for business yet. It is identifiable by the tall towers of metal steamers for the soups. At time of visit, there is ongoing road works (estimated to end 2021) so please be careful if you drive! I visited this place on each of my trips to Kuala Lumpur as I felt that the food was good & it isn't pricey (dining in KL can get quite expensive given it is a city). Only con was the availability of seating areas (which wasn't a problem as I was alone, & can easily share tables with others) Sit right down at a table of your choosing & someone will come along to take your orders. It may be a little challenging for patrons who do not speak Bahasa Melayu, Mandarin or dialects (Cantonese or Hokkien/Teochew) but there is no need to worry. Just look around, & point! One of the signature soups is the Double-boiled Coconut Chicken soup. Pieces of chicken meat, along with some herbs & goji berries are boiled in coconuts. It smells great & they do not stinge on the ingredients. Other soups include double boiled Sea Turtle soup, Ox Tail Soup, Ginseng Chicken, frog leg's soup, Bamboo Shoots Chicken soup & Pig's Brains soup. Be sure to enquire about the side dishes, of which a popular dish would be the Curry with Wild Boar's Meat. The meat is slightly tougher than stewed pork, & the curry is thick (the consistency is more like broth). Pair the above with rice (an Asian staple) & you will leave truly fulfilled! The prices aren't listed, but when I visited the total cost did not go above 21 Malaysian Ringgit (I ordered a Coconut Chicken soup, Curry Boar's meat, white rice & Iced Tea). Highly recommended if you like soups, & are looking for a homely flavor & taste with that exciting hint of the unknown (if you aren't experienced with Asian/Chinese soups).More

If you stay near Times Square try this place for a simple local dinner. The portions are small, but prices are very reasonable. So just order 1 or 2 dishes more than usually. You won't regret it. We especially liked the coconut chicken soup. The...tables are below some big trees with some simple roof.More

A simple hearty meal for two? Head to Keong Kee. Not just herbal soup but you have turtles and wild boar too. Coconut chicken herbal soup is a must! A coconut chicken herbal soup, pork throttle vinegar, a vegetable and two rice cost us RM29.40...Nested at the corner of the junction, it can be easily missed. This is exactly opposite Ali Food and Shaw Parade. Always full, so be early!More

We were wandering near where we were staying looking for something to eat when we came upon Keong Kee herbal soup. As it was closing time most of their top sellers were unavailable. We settled for tortoise soup, pork belly in preserved vegetables, chicken in...ginger, & bean sprouts with lime juice. The place is located next to an open car park and has cement flooring. They sell all types of herbal soups and the bowls of soups are kept hot in huge steamers. The dishes ordered tasted surprisingly quite good despite lack of presentation appeal! We found out from the owner's son that the family has been selling herbal soups for over 30 years. This is a must visit for herbal soup connoisseurs.More

This used to be one of those places I usually visit for hearty home-cooked meal. Another place we would normally go to for budget and delish food. In fact I've been here so many times (at least 50 times over 20 years), and have not...visited in a long time so decided to give it a try. Sadly the quality went down over the years. Reason behind it is the owners just kinda stopped doing everything themselves, they hired loads of workers who pay no attention to their food. Their famous coconut soup is very, very oily. Well it's due to lack of attention to clean the chicken. When fats are not being removed properly, the layer of oil will be so thick and disgusting. Pork has loads of hair on it you don't even want to eat the skin. Very unhygienic I'm afraid I might even get diarrhea after eating. Just take a look at how they wash their dishes, the "clean" dishes given to us were oily. Sad to say I will not go back again. For coconut soup, Chef Kong at Viva Home is a better alternative. I don't even want to share photos, as it's just not worth it at all. The layer of oil is enough to scare everyone off.More

This place is one of my favourite street eatery. Large parking area, windy location. Steamed herbal chicken soup served in old coconut is warm and hearty, love the chewy mushroom in chicken feet and mushroom dish. I didn't tried the exotic dishes though

We saw the large number of people eating at this nondescript outdoor restaurant. With so many people it must be good,and it was. One of the servers explained the items on the menu that day. We had delicious ginger chicken and braised vegetables. We should...have tried the soup,but did not realize the soup was a specialty of the restaurant until we saw the reviews. The restaurant is so popular they ran out of one of the two vegetable options. If we are staying in the area we will come back and next time we will try the soup.More

Not that many place in the city to find shops selling better herbal soup. There are many places that sells herbal soup, but mostly are watered down/compromised in quality or very little in quantity. This place has been in business for many many years. So...they have built up their customer base and reputation, although they are not the best. As compared to many shops (not with the herbal soup specialist shops), this is much better. Apart from the herbal soups they offer, wild boar curry, braised pork in salted vegetable is a couple of their dishes they are popular with their customers. Almost every table orders this 2 dishes. Their place is located a portion of a very large car park, and at a junction. Their biggest beacon/landmark is they are very close and behind Berjaya Times Square, a shopping mall. If you are driving, you can park at the parking area or at the road side. If you happen to park at the road side, then get prepared to be harass by illegal "car jockeys" for a small fee. They are only available in the evenings, say after 4pm until late. So, you have to be there early to get a table and all that is available of what they offer. Otherwise, you may have very limited in choice when they sold off their popular dishes.More

Located at a parking lot area behind of Times Square, it's certain that many people would have passed by without paying attention to this average looking roadside food joint. Only hardcore foodies such as myself, has explored this cave of food treasures which is coming...to extinction in modern city life. Everyone who visited would recommend the steamed herbal coconut chicken soup served in an actual old coconut. There are also goodies such a braised pork belly with salted vegetable, wild boar curry, braised mutton, chicken feet with mushroom and many more traditional chinese comfort food. All served by a single size portion but at a very reasonable price. However whenever I'm here, I would order to impress. My favourite items on the menu is braised monitor lizard, squirrel soup, herbal turtle soup and I guess you kind of get the picture. You can get really hardcore stuff here if you ask for recommendations. Not everything is in the menu all the time so be adventurous! Most of these items actually taste pretty good and not much different from the conventional pork, beef, lamb or chicken. If you have are foodie, come here. This joint is meant for you to put a point on your scoreboard. Save your bragging rights until you've taste some delicious reptile.More
