“Good Place for Local Chinese Food In addition to the excellent Char Siew!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2012

A friend recommended this and it certainly didn't disappoint! The food was good and reasonably priced.

Like other reviewers have mentioned, the char siew is a must try -- however, if you can, do call to make a reservation of it as it gets sold out quite early in the day!

What made this place special were the service staff -- they were very accommodating and customer friendly -- definitely made us feel very welcomed.

I will definitely return.

“Great food everytime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

Their char siew ( BBQ Pork) and Roast Pork are a MUST try when you visit this restaurant. Any dish you order would very likely be really delicious. I have been here 2 times and each time, different dishes were ordered and each dish was super yummy! This time, we orderd the Onion Chicken, Hot Plate Venison and Saute Broccouli wtih Garlic. Their portions are generous and by the 2nd dish, we were getting full already but the chicken was too delectable to not eat it! The 2 of us had 3 dishes, the char siew and roast pork starter with another chicken roll starter and one nata de coco longan dessert which amounted to RM 118. Pretty decent for the quality. Can't wait to return!

“Fantastic Char Siew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

Reservations of table and char Siew is required. Food is always consistent and of high quality. Fish and big head prawn is a must.

“Never failed me or my guests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

Specializing in Cantonese food, this restaurant sources top-quality produce and meats to serve to their customers. I cannot recall one dish that I didn't think was up to scratch although I've visited this restaurant at least ten times. One of the house specialities is their unique preparation of giant fresh-water shrimp where the shrimp are cooked in molasses and dark soy with garlic being used with abandon. As others have mentioned, their roast barbecued pork (cha siu) is top-notch as they use pork with heavy marbling. Soups are always tasty and together a precisely steamed live marble goby fish (soon hock), one couldn't ask for better from a restaurant.

Prices are steep. No two ways about it so only go there when you really feel you need a great meal.

One word of warning is that the restaurant is not 5 star in its ambience and surroundings. But the food certainly makes up for this.
