We came at Sunday noon where there almost no table for us to sit but their staff quickly notice and help us to find the table. we ate a lot of dim sum and char kuetio just for 27RM, what a surprise how cheap it was. Next day we came back again and the staff lady also very nice and helpful to guide me to find the place that i search for..

“Cheap and very casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This local dim-sum spot was packed frequently, and it has the same atmosphere as most hawker centres in the city. This was not your upscale dim-sum restaurant you would expect in Hong Kong, but a stripped down version for what Georgetown is famous, cheap good food with no pretension. Self service was key to dining here. Find a table, settle down and order whatever selections on the few carts passed by. If you didn't want to wait, go to the counter at the back and ordered from the staff. The server only came by once to take order for drinks and any special order. You may bring your own tea and unlimited hot water for tea will be charged per person. In addition to the good selection of dim sum, you may order prepared dishes such as fried noodles from the server. Overall, the food was decent, and the price was very reasonable.

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place was awesome! My wife and I ate until we were full and it still only cost 30 ringit including a can of coke and tea. All of your favourites are here; dumplings, pork buns, chickens feet, egg tarts, and more.

We actually already had breakfast, so took it with us for our drive back to Subang Jaya, had it at one of the stopovers and regretted not buying more!! What a shame!
