This was a grim experience. Watery, tasteless kangkung and expensive,unappetising fish with ginger which arrived within minutes, if not seconds, after my order. A request for rice was forgotten. I persuaded myself that perhaps this was an 'off'' night and that there were at least some gracious touches - the plate of peanuts on the table upon arrival along with... More

Very tasty Chinese food. The portions are big - we ordered 3 meats, a medium rice and two spring rolls for two people and struggled to finish it! The Chinese tea is amazing and is constantly refilled. However, after paying and checking our receipt we noticed two extra charges. 2MYR for peanuts, that were put out on our table when... More

This Chinese restaurant located in down town Georgetown, right next to Cititel Hotel was a great discovery. Food was really great. Very fresh ingredients and well prepared also. I really recommend it. Their fried rice and their honey chicken were really outstanding. Staff was kind also. The only fault were the tables that were all round and very big, not... More

We frequently saw many crowds there every evening and finally had our last meal there. A lot of local eat there with their family and also expatriates who work there. Food well cooked and retains original flavor.. not very salty as S'pore's. Recommend to go there to dine in bigger group so you can try out more of their dishes.

Delicious dishes with satisfying portion and prices. The restaurant is air-conditioned and comfortable. Services provided by the waiters were fairly good. It's a good place suggestive of birthday celebration. There were few birthday celebrations on the day we had dinner there:)

Been here everytime my family and I go to Penang and it has never disappoint. Food is consistent all the time in taste and it won't burn a huge hole in the pocket. Head for the spring rolls by all means, it's one of the best there is. Booking is needed though if you are planning to come for dinner... More

Visited this restaurant based on a recommendation from a local resident and I was not disappointed. The food here is tasty and authentic and will appeal to everyone. This restaurant is invariably packed out- another good sign- and booking is advised especially over the week-end. Great food and atmosphere- will definitely go again and again.

The food here was amazing. All the food was great, but my favourite two dishes were the steamed fish and crispy skin duck. Its located just around the corner from the Cititel Hotel. We were a large group, so a lot of different dishes were ordered. There was not one item that I did not like. Will definitely we coming... More
