Food is above average chinese cooking. Service is prompt. Prices reasonable. Specialty beggar chicken is good. Come early as the place is always packed. Parking is quite bad.

Food is very good with reasonable price. It is a local favourite, food presentation is not their key interest but the flavour is very good. You must book before visiting, always full.

Visited 11 sept 16 Sunday for dinner. Hubby tried to make reservations but they only do reservations for more then 7 pax. Sad. There's only 5 of us. So we ended up standing waiting for a table at the very very crowded and chaotic restaurant. We reached there 6pm and it's already full house. We were lost as to how... More

Food is quite good and value for money. I would not rate is as best in Kuantan but it is crowded whole year round because of it fast service and economical prices.

Must say, this restaurant gives you the value for your money, sometimes in fact, much more. The food is delicious and it totally satisfies any cravings you have for Chinese food here in the east coast. The only downside you might face is the long queue you might have to wait during peak hours! Make reservations if you want to... More

The restaurant was full when we visited for dinner (the place only opens for dinner) on a Saturday night and we were worried that our order would take long to be served - but we were wrong as the food was served rather quickly and best of all, everything tasted good! Ordered five dishes - beggar chicken (chicken cooked in... More

We booked two tables on our visit and we were impressed with our dishes. The fish was tasty.Their beggars chicken may not be suitable to westerner's palette as it is very strong in chinese herbal taste. I personally enjoyed it as the meat just falls apart from it's bones. We were there on Sunday and we had to queue for... More

The most popular Chinese eatery in Kuantan, full house every night, serving nice and value for money Chinese non-Halal dishes. Blend in, find yourself an empty table, and waiters would come around to get your order. Other than the usual meat/fish/tofu/seafood dishes, not to be missed are their fried rice/noodles dishes.
