One of the best dim sum place in Brunei. This restaurant have been serving traditional dim sum for more then 20 years and it's a family breakfast venue on Sunday. You will see family catching up over a warm cuppa tea and kids running around. Perfect for larger size function as well. During moon cake season, they produce some pretty... More

You can look up their long list of menu and enjoy their high class interior but when the food comes out it tastes cheap and not value for money.

Its my favorite there. But dont have this during dinner time, its not as yummy as those serve during lunch (maybe... More

My driver suggested this restaurant and what a great choice. The décor has a great Chinese look and is very pleasing on the eye, has a relaxing ambient atmosphere. This is a large restaurant and could easily cater for large parties

As a Islamic country, not many restaurant serve pork. Located in town center, jalan Sultan, first floor infront of waterfront facing the water village. Nice Chinese food include dim sum . They also serve BBQ pork, duck, chicken & even roasted piglet.

This is one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in Brunei. Its ambient, kitchen and staff are mostly Chinese. Many so called Chinese restaurants in the country don't employ qualified Chinese chef. With our numerous visit to this place and others, it has one of the best Chinese food in Brunei. The price is reasonable, and even competitive to many... More

A big restaurant and so when there are only a few tables being used it feels a bit empty and soulless despite the traditional bright but bit dated Chinese decor. Tablecloth looked a bit grubby so not great first impression. Food was ok, we had a prawn dish and a sizzling beef but nothing special. Service decidedly average. We had... More

More than decent Chinese food with views of Customs House waterfront. Interior is somewhat worn with less than current decor.
