Came here for lunch absolutely starving and left really pleased. They have a really tasty selection of dim sum, but our favourite was the tom yam fried noodles - really good- like no other flavour we've tasted before. Will be back all week for more.

This restaurant is very big. Self service unless you order special noodles or rice. Place is clean and always full of customers. Food taste some is very good but some just okay. Price is a bit cheaper than other Dim Sum restaurant. Worth a try.

Our Penang friend had told us about this dim sum restaurant and we always want to eat where the locals eat. We had driven to the outlet at Sungai Dua with the help of our GPS. There is ample parking right in front of the restaurant or around the housing estate where it is situated. Once you approach the restaurant... More

It's been a while since we visited this "yum-cha" place but the food is still as good. We went twice, almost a week apart, during our trip this time round, and the dim-sum was fresh, hot and excellent. There aren't many other places that offer cheap and good dim-sum but this place is one of them. Located somewhere in the... More

Normal dim sum food serve but the best still the egg tart and the char siew pau (non halal). If you wanted to try out this restaurant. must go early to avoid the traffic of people.

Business being good has gone to the head of the management and staff. Bad encounter with one of the staff on one of our early morning breakfast with some colleague from KL. due to dispute on the number of items marked on the card. Won't go back . Teach them a lesson. Customer first.
