Reviewed 2 January 2016

There are better Chinese restaurant but indeed Phongmun is the only Chinese restaurant locate at the heart of the capital that serve Pork dishes. Lucky restaurant at Mile 1 Jalan Tutong is better but my preference Chinese restaurant is the Thiam Hock located behind the Mall at Gadong which is cheap, huge varities, and always pack! Take the public bus to Gadong Centre Point get off walk back to the area of the Mall and you will find Thiam Hock in the middle area along this row of shoplot. The food here is always a must when we make our visit back to Brunei along with Escapade on the shop rows opposite the CentrePoint Hotel area.

This is the only restaurant in the whole of Brunei, that i would recommend you to have dim sum. I have not tried any better ones in Brunei.
If you're there for lunch, tried the sweet and sour pork. Its my favorite there. But dont have this during dinner time, its not as yummy as those serve during lunch (maybe different chef??)

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.
