The authentic Hainanese style fried chicken chops are fairly tasty and reasonably priced. The mee mamak is good as well. As other reviewers have pointed out, empty parking lots are scarce.

I went there around 7.30pm, the restaurant was a bit crowded, waited about 5 minutes to get a seat. For me, it was just average, as in the taste, service, and ambiance of the restaurant. The price was RM 15 for each chicken chop, either mushroom or black pepper sauce, you can also have it grilled or fried. I went... More

i know that this place established since a long time ago and really famous for the chicken chop. It is indeed. But sadly this only open for a few hours and always have to wait to have a seat.

Since its opening in sutera utama, i decided to try out its signature chicken chop. After tasting it and compare with others, i put it in my top 5 list. Certainly is not on the top of my list. I still highly recommend IT ROO though to anyone craving for western food especially chicken chop.

We went to JB with the intention to café-hop and shared a plate of grilled chicken chop (with black pepper sauce), RM15. The chicken chop was good but not fantastic. Like what another reviewer mentioned, it's either the marination was done well or the MSG was just abundant... hard to tell as we are not experts chefs or food bloggers.... More

Enjoyed a plate of grilled chicken chop (you have the option of grilled or fried) to end off the night in JB. The chili is good, not the usual kind of chili sauce you get from stores. The meat is tender, portion is decent. The wedges can be a bit too chunky. Price is decent, above average. The cafe layout... More

In town, by a long shot. However the chops are average, and priced as such. Parking is an issue, service is however fast.

Still one of the best chicken chop that I have had, with options of fried or grilled to perfection. You may choose from black pepper or mushroom sauce or even both (with extra charge). Other items in the menu are fairly good especially the Mamak Mee, with succulent prawns and appetizing flavor with each slurp. There are 2 outlets, the... More
