The location in the second floor facing to the river offers nice views.

We tried different kind of prawns which felt fresh and were tasty, but not really something you will remember days after. Even the small plate is enough for one if you are not extremely hungry. The prices are reasonable and you get the food quite fast.

Can be recommended in this city where it is a little bit hard to find tasty food.

If you are wondering what to do on the weekends, try going to Phongmun Restaurant for a Dim Sum breakfast.

It's traditional Chinese food serving from the same location for the past 30 years. It's not the best Dim Sum i have tasted but it's one of the best you will find in Brunei.

They do get a little busy on Sunday mornings, so try to get there early to avoid the rush.

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 lovely flavor moon cake as well.

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.

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.
