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:)

I. highly recommend this... 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.

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

try dry sar hor fun, spring roll -one f the best restaurant in penang, locals favour this restaurant to celebrate birthday, or other special occasion. price reasonable, service soso.but number of foreign workers is increasing which might means that food sometimes might not meet certain standard.

Great restaurant with great food. Authentic chinese cuisine restaurant. We have to book at least 1 day ahead in order to get a table. The place is mostly full even on weekdays. We like their signature dish such as Steamed drunken chicken, Nyonya Assam Fish Curry, Fried bitter gourd with salted egg yolk and Asparagus with sambal. Other specialty is... More
