A very decent tze char that serves above average food. Place is a coffeeshop with back alley seating so it does remind one of dining in Malaysia. Be early or else be ready to wait for a table. The signature dishes are the prawn noodles soup, bittergourd fish head, etc. Its worth coming back for simple home cooked meals done... More

Remembered my first visit to this "Zi Char" in 1998. At that time the shop was still at the u-shaped corner a few doors away. This shop is known for their fish soup, fish bee hoon soup and fish Fried Kway Teow. Specially loved the fish belly slices, thick sliced and generous. During the most recent trip, did not manage...

This low key restaurant has one of the best Chinese food i have ever had. Their sweet'n'sour pork, beef with ginger and onions, steamed fish tail and all veggies are phenomenal!

Will come back to taste other dishes, overall it is a good experience. I liked the prawn soup but some friends commented it was salty. Fo rong egg was nice. Price is avg, not your most expensive . Worth the trip and please come early for dinner, anything after 630 it will be crowded

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

Never stop to amaze me this place that is tucked away in Chinatown. Must try the BOG PRAWN Hor-Fun or Deep Fried noodle.

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
