We stumbled onto this restaurant. Past 2pm last Sunday afternoon. We were the lucky ones to get the last roasted chicken. Managed to get our hands on one bowl of white rice for the four of us. I guess we arrived too late. No Dim Sum in sight. But the "sang mee" otherwise known as Cantonese... read more

This kopitiam offers one of the best Cantonese-style noodles. Apart from their noodles, try their dimsum, dumplings and fish ball soup. Their chicken rice is excellent too. During the moon festival, they bake their own traditional moon cakes too. A must try.

My boyfriend and I had been waking forever trying to find a place to eat breakfast, as most places were still closed or still prepping and stumbled across this and figured why not.

We visited this restaurant for lunch as it featured in our lonely planet guide and we weren't disappointed! Our server spoke excellent English and as there isn't a menu we just asked for his recomendations and picked a couple of dim sum off the cart. Everything he suggested was delicious and we will absolutely be back. For a traditional dining... 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.

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 lunch. Venue is old coffee shop style which can be warm.... More

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
