I always like when Chinese Food brought to the original level. They serve various menu of classic and original recipe such as lindung cah fumak (deep fried eel stirred fried with vegetables) , soup ikan talas (fish soup), babi hong (pork), etc.

Its an old school chinese food restaurant. Their menu is familiar for most of old chinese people. Their specialty is Fish soup, you can add tofu as compliment on the soup. Beside fish soup, you also have to order yam ha, eel with fumak, and also babat jari (I don't know the name in english).

I ate here with my uncle and he ordered everything for us, and everything was really good. I especially love the fish soup! It's very very tasty and just right. I tend to prefer my soups not made from seafood but this one is an exception. But here, the broth is heavenly. I can even eat the whole thing myself... More

Cahaya lestari specializes in hakka cuisine. Almost all of their foods are nice and worth to try but its fish head soup is worth a particular mention, delicious, with white broth and vegetables, a truly delight.. dont expect nice luxurious interior in this place, but people come here to eat and they know what they're expecting.
