Didn't get to taste their famous beggar's chicken as it was already sold out when we reached at 5.30pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was already full by then with many others walking. We were lucky to get a table fast as we were only 2 pax. Lots of flies around so it would be a chore having to deal with them while eating. We ordered a chicken, a fish, a plate of vegetables and toufu which costed only 75rm. Really value for money. Will definitely visit again next time.

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.
