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).

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
