Very nice ambience. The furniture is antique and gives you the feeling that you were back in time to some colonial chinatown era. The food is nice and service staff are good.

This small but perfect restaurant is hidden behind swing doors near the Chinese Market. The staff are very friendly and the food was quick, hot and tasty. Inexpensive and well worth a visit.

The concierge at my hotel recommended this place and I was a little sceptical. However, this place was a delight. The staff were so friendly and the service impeccable. The food was so tasty, fresh and fast to come out. Overall a highly enjoyable experience

Couple of friends took me here for lunch and i was pleasantly surprised... The ambience is rustic, you can tell the place has a lot of history behind it and the food is absolutely delish! Try the classic nyonya dishes, everything we had was great! Waiters will serve you well and give recommendations too. I am definitely coming back here

Had a starter which was very good, and then we shared a Laksa and the beef rending and they where both so good! Best laksa i ever had, so tasty and so much food! Going back there soon for more! Also had one of the omelets with was not very interesting... But a must try!

Step through the swinging saloon doors and relax in a cool space far away from the hectic Chinatown chaos. I reckon a must try is the OCC Iced White coffee. Well worth the search.

Slightly off the beaten track but the meal was enjoyable although a little pricey for KL. Our family of four had an enjoyable dinner. The servings are average size and flavoursome. I cannot recall all that we ate but we all enjoyed the Nonya cuisine. The Cincalok Omelette is exceptional (Cincalok is fermented shrimp) and tastes like cheese.
