Have been eating in this restaurant for many years. Restaurant is decorated with very luxurious traditional Chinese fittings. Serves great Sichuan style Chinese dishes such as “kong bao prawn”, “hot and sour soup”, ‘string bean”. Food quality is of very high standard, though a little pricy.

Situated in Mutiara Hotel of the former Holiday Inn in JB. It has been in JB for more than 2 decades and the food is impeccably tasty and well-deserved a praise. Strictly halal & I always bring my friends who want to try Chinese food. I especially like the fried string beans with minced chicken meat. Superb......

paid RM31++ for peking duck on their anivesary. Service was good, ordered curry prawn with shell for better taste. Coconut gravy just enough to whet the appetitite. Cod fish in hongkong style was ok and the scezhuan spicy sup was very good. Overall a satisfying meal. Will definitely return.

My daughter likes the honey chicken and the fried bun that comes with the duck. My father-in-law likes the clay pot mixed vegetables which he said is very hard to find in Singapore and I like the "zhang cha" duck with the sauce.

I was staying at the Mutiara Hotel and heard about this restaurant on the second level and decided to try it out. I am not a big fan of Asian food served in the South East of Asia, simply because they add dried fish to almost everything and I am not a fan of that odour! Anyways, I decided to... More

The food was good, not great. It was pricey but convenient for business travellers who were staying at Mutiara Hotel. The waiting staff did not alert me to the possibility of including the bill in my hotel room bill (I was only alerted by the restaurant downstairs). The waiting staff was more preoccupied with waiting on big groups, the junior... More

Their braised duck is a must-try. Not too salty and tender (: Also we always eat their steamed fish in nyonya sauce w steamed buns. YUMZZZ It's considered as one of the few high end Chinese restaurants in jb so the price is relatively high, depending on what you order. A meal for three would average at about RM200++

The stewed duck and plain white buns that go with the duck dish makes it superb and complete. It's yummy!
