Best Chicken Chop in Town

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... read more

I first visited the restaurant back in the 90s, back then, the chicken chop was really good, big portion, gravy tasted just right, the fries and the chicken - tender and tasty. I don't frequent this place often as it's quite difficult to get a parking space. Well, i did visit it quite a number of times since then whenever... More

We went to the new IT Roo Bistro located at Sutera Utama area. It was a Sunday 245pm, ordered 2 chicken chop and served in 10minutes. Fast and authentic Hainanese chicken chop. We enjoyed the clean and less crowded lunch.

We visited from Melbourne and had a craving for the traditional Malaysian chicken chop that we used to know so googled "the best chicken chop in JB" and found this place. It was definitely not authentic, tasted very average and pricey! Won't be retuning for sure!

Went there with friends as we heard Jalan Dhoby have some nice cafes, so we thought of trying it all. We went in on a weekday evening and the restaurant is full, so we ordered two plates of chicken chop with eggs. Both grilled, one with mushroom sauce, another with black pepper. The potatoes are cut whole, so some of... More

Unethical practice. They placed a tiny plate of peanuts on the table and charged RM2.00. We assumed that it would be complementary since it was there before we sat down. They should have informed us or put a price tag there. Besides, the potatoes were all uncooked for all 6 members of our table. Their service was also very rude.... More

11.23.2014 Dinner for 4 adults+1 child. Scarce parking spots nearby forced us to park 2 blocks away in a dinghy alley. The long wait for tables was off-putting. We were delighted to be seated outdoors thinking it would be nice and airy. But got rained on. We moved indoors and waited some more for service. The servers were overworked and... More
