“Best BBQ Pork Ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

My sister who is Malaysian said that this is the best restaurant in the Overseas Chain. I have only eaten in this outlet and its my must go to every time I am in KL. The BBQ made from pork neck is awesome - pre-order this if you want to try as it often runs out. Other signature dishes are the sliced belly pork with salted fish in claypot, lam yue chye po (vegetarian dish in preserved bean curd), fried fish in superior soya sauce and steam kampong chicken. Fried chye sim is a simple dish but they do this so well.

“Absolutely incredible”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

KL is so full of places to eat..the most easily available are in foodcourts. Though some foodcourts give quite a nice choice and quality this chinese restaurant is absolutely a palce to visit..
Its renowned pork with salted fish and its suckling pig are marvellous...
Advice to good chinese food lovers..

“Charsiew!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Charsiew was fantastic. Pretty easy to locate and good to go in a big group so that you can order a whole host of dishes.

Pretty good for formal dining.

“good old fashioned chinese restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

Of all the Overseas Chinese Restaurants chains, this is the best in terms of food. It's an old restaurant so does not have the fancy newly refurbished look. Always full and they have a little lift to take you to the 1st floor. Parking is sometimes an issue. The BBQ pork is their signature dish. Because they are so busy, you should pre order it if you are coming just for this.
