Friends described food here as near as Malaysian style esp with its yong tou fu and big prawn noodles. My verdict is it' s good the 1st time but after 3rd time, the novelty ran out. Here are my grouses and praise. Grouse: big prawn (sang har) noodles was too spicy - you may need them to reduce chili as... More

Every visit to Kok Sen is an exciting culinary experience. I've been here on numerous occassions and have always enjoyed the food and atmophere. It'll be helpful to read chinese as they have their specials pasted on the wall, speak & understand cantonese to have a lively banter with the "Ah Jie" (head waitress). Food is good, worth the wait.... More

I've been to Kok Sen on quite a number of occasions. The food is pretty good but can be a tad salty at times. Do remind them to go easy on the salt if you need to. In my case, I've got my elderly parents who need to stick to a low salt diet. Our favorites have always been the... More

The claypot yong taufu is equally good, not forgetting the claypot chicken.

My bro in law introduced this outlet to us. Everything here is yummy which I didn't believe before i ate it. I think it's because the cook has a lot of years of experience therefore he is able to handle the fire very well! The only thing is it is jam packed during meal times. So if you need a... More
