Delicious Noodles

Food:| Delicious and variety of noodles served here. I like their Sang Mee and Hong Tho Mee in particular. Their signature is steamed fish head bee hoon which is also good. Noodles are served after 9.00am. Dim Sum is available before 9.00am. They also serve nice chicken rice for... read more

In terms of the food taste, it's at Definite in top 10 percentile in Penang. The rest.. well.. a traditional classic crowdy dim sum restaurant, so you will expect to live with the rush traffic on the restaurant, chatty noises, staff are too busy to attend to you soon enough.. that environment is just classic and original CULTURE of Dim...

Located in lebuh campbell, the place was pretty full for a weekday dim sum. Nothing was fantastic and dishes tend to be repetitive as the same minced meat appear in different varieties. The bao was also rather dry.

We arrived at 10am, and may have missed most of the dim sum. The cart came by twice and by about 10:20, it did not come anymore. The dishes we had were decent, but not spectacular and the deep fried dishes were a touch too greasy. The selection was minimal. When cashing out, we were charged a bit more than... More

It's like eating in a coffee shop style restaurant in Singapore. The food is not bad at all. The signature is the fish head bee hoon done in 2 styles. Remember to tell the waiting staff to instruct the cook to be less liberal with the salt. Otherwise you'll need a few drinks after that!

Visited this restaurant for lunch on a weekend. We ordered two noodle dishes and 2 dumplings. Although the restaurant wasn't full when we arrived, we had to wait almost 15 min for the first noodle dish to arrive and another 15 min for the second dish. The food taste was ok but we felt the price was quite high.

Yummy fried noodles would surely make you craving for more. The service staffs appear to be not so friendly. Quite reasonable if you are into authentic Cantonese fried flat noodles.

Having been recommended in a guide book we came here for lunch on Saturday. We did receive any menus so we just ordered 2 noodles and some dumplings. The dumplings came on their own without any noodles, no one told us this when we were ordering. The food arrived and it was OK, I have had better Chinese food in... More
