I have been eating thereally for years. I never expected that due to bad service I would just get up after 5 minutes being seated. Waiters were mocking each other of who is going to clean the table where we were seated. In the mean time,another table which got filled after us, we're taken care of and ready to order.... More

This place gets very busy, so either you are there at noon sharp or you can expect to queue. You want to taste local food? It's a good place to go :) as a foreigner you might not know what to order so ask people around you! The sew kiaw are very nice, noddles, other dumplings, fried rice ect. Enjoy!... More

Parking might be a problem in the area during... More
