Serves great food at very reasonable prices and servings are generous too. But beware....the restaurant fills up quickly by 6.45pm (they open at 6.00pm but apparently allows people in before 6), otherwise it may be a long wait. Highly recommended for a good quick early Chinese dinner.

If tasty, no frills & easy-on-the-pocket food is what appeals to you, head to this place. Lower your expectations on ambience & service - just bear with the heat, tuck in & leave. The premise is far from comfortable, rather run-down & downright noisy. During peak hours with fast turnover, the next group waiting for their dinner would have been assigned to your table even before you have finished your meal! So make sure you go early coz the crowd can be a major turn-off.

Choose from pricier seafood dishes or the more affordable noodles. Signature dishes include herbal chicken, salted egg deep fried squid and butter mantis prawns. Most dishes are delicious with generous servings.

We like their robust Hokkien noodles best; the thick black sauce is intense & absolutely delicious with wok hei infused! Check out their unique petai fried Beehoon creation too.

Call to order in advance & take away the food if a complimentary sauna while dining is not your cup of tea.

Our pit stop during SG-Tioman-KL road trip . Dinner stop from Tanjung Gemuk towards Kuantan along the coastal road.

Googled nice restaurant this came out top 3 in the list, decided to try out since many years didn’t come over to Kuantan.

Reached there about 7:45pm, found 2 tables settled down ordered about 8 dishes they start arriving in 10 mins!!

Dishes we like:

Herbal boils chicken clay port, must try!
Dry curry La La - love the curry taste!
Hokkien noodles - like the pork lark flavored thick dark source, kids fav!!

Will definitely come again when we drop by Kuantan in the future!!
