They moved to City Square beginning August 2015

Went to City Square for a walk and decided to have late lunch there. Compared to their previous premise of waiting for at least 45 minutes, service this time was fast and the food came in less than 10 minutes after taking the order. Previously they had many take away orders and they seemed to... read more

These homemade noodles are springy and well mixed with the chili sauce. I would personally recommend the "white" noodle with mild spicyness as it seems to be the right mix of flavours. Please do note that the wait be be up to half an hour and it is a little pricey for Johore Bahru

I like the freshly made wanton noodles here. The wanton noodles are very delicious. Although the food is slow but I don't mind. The price of the food is a bit expensive. Just wait patiently for your food to arrive. I would like to recommend this wonderful restaurant to my friends. I would also come back very week to eat... More

Service was poor, had to wait 45mins. Personally it is not worth waiting, cannot understand why it is crowded and people wait for 45 mins for a plate of wanton mee. The noodles are very hard, tasteless and the wanton dumplings have very little filling in them. If they couldn't serve quickly, why do they accept phone in orders? What... More

The noodle is springy and the wan tan is tasty. We waited for more than 30 minutes even though we were there at around 10.15 am. Go if you have time to spare. We will not.
