“Spreaded throughout the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

This restaurant, is one of the most visited family seafood restaurant in town. It was here tens of years ago and keep on getting more branches throughout the city. The food is very memorable in my opinion, especially the "Leng-Hong-Kien" (prawn rolls covered with their own mayo). People usually go here for the dim-sum, which has many varieties. Prepare your self-control when the waiter or waitress show you the dim sum choices directly on your tables.

The typical condition in this restaurant is that when you want to visit it at lunch or dinner, especially on weekends, you must queue for a seat inside, yes it will be always packed at those times!

“A delicious pancake durian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I visited one Nelayan resto at Cambridge mall, just besides the hotel I stayed.
I ordered pancake, it was superb. Delicious, though the price a bit expensive.
