Didn’t eat here but came in to look at the menu, decent comprehensive menu and obviously a popular place but was very busy and noisy and they don’t serve wine

Popular Chinese restaurant on the strip not to far from the Park Royal Hotel Prices average for the area Unusual menu as they don’t do starters or desserts, just main courses. Very friendly and attentive staff who answered all our questions about menu choices Nice...food and good portions. We opted for the Plum Beef (very popular) and rightly so along with the chicken with ginger and spring onion. EnjoyableMore

Wow! Really tasty food. Serving sizes weren't huge but prices were good and we ordered enough dishes that we all left quite full. Popular choices were the plum sauce beef, the chilli chicken and squid.

Walked past this as we were walking the strip of Batu F. We decided to stop to get something to eat. My wife isn’t keen on Chinese food but we were glad we stopped and ate there. The waitress was really friendly and helpful who...turns out was one of the family. We sat with a beer until or food arrived. The sweet and sour chicken and beef in plum sauce were both very good and tasty definitely better than a Chinese we get in the UK. Make sure you have cash as it is cash only- we are finding this a lot in Malaysia which is pretty inconvenient. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong eating here.More

Simple and uncomplicated menu but the best feature of this place is the attention the staff paid to our food allergies adjusting the ingredients accordingly. This degree of understanding and cooperation is rare anywhere but really hard to find when there is the added barrier...of language difficulties. Well done and thank you.More

Ambience: surround with nature but also mosquito....The staff helped us with mosquito coil but it wasn't much of a help cz we sat ond outside part of the restaurant. (So make sure u sit inside of the restaurant) Price : It was overpriced and overrated. Couldn't believe we actually paid 500+ for tastless food. Very much disappointed.More

Wonderful delicious family owned restaurant since three generations. We not only feel warmly welcome every time we visit but also enjoy the freshest and the best of the seafood and Malaysian top recipes. We especially recommend to try the crab specialities. Unforgettable experience in this...restaurant that motivated us to fly back to Penang even!More

Red snapper is fresh catch in the morning and it's perfect. The rest of the food we ordered all good, sizzling, omelete and tofu are good to go with rice. Reasonable price and the restaurant has exist since 1940. Recommended

5 mins walk fro Park Royal. Typically furnished Chinese restaurant, quiet night only one other table. The street is quite deserted, no tourists due COVID-19. Pretty good claypot tofu, Sambal belacan kangkung a favourite, Nam Yee fried chicken deboned was great, as is the salted...egg squid, though the sweet sour fish could be fresher. Friendly service, even the auntie to check if we want more rice. Reasonable price RM162.More
