Small and plainly decorated. Service is slow and poorly. Food turned out to be tasteless, although visually appetizing. Not that cheap for the outcome that you get.

The restaurant had a "full" sign at the door when we got there, but seats outside were still... More

Unquestionably one of the best restaurants in Malaysia. Traditional restaurant in a shiny room. Booking ahead is essential, ask in advance for BYO or a roast suckling pig (delicious, crunchy, about US$80-90 each). It can be noisy at peak hours.

What we liked best were the fish lip soup, Mango crispy duck, Stir-fry broad beans with minced meat and Korean pancake. They were worth a try. What we found mediocre was the acclaimed claypot tofu and the fried rice. We won't order... More

The restaurant was started by the Chef of an old Chinese restaurant, Chui Hua Lau which had been closed down some years back. The food are mainly Cantonese and Sichuan style and is considered the most authentic in Kuching. That is why it is very popular among the local. It is recommended to book a table days before to avoid... More

Excellent cuisine from a small restaurant that leaves its mark on you to return. Reasonably clean and good service. Price is manageable depending on the kind of food ordered.

This is a restaurant which is the remnant of Tsui Hwa Lau. The good is without complain. the queue says it all. Several must try and you probably will come back for more of it. I loved their butter prawn, and their toufu. Simply fantastic. Will definitely return for more.
