“Yummy BKT; and here's the reason why...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

MSG!!!!! Having said that, one of the better BKT in Petaling Jaya.

The three of us ordered a mixed claypot, and the soup was refilled a couple of times generously. The soup was hearty, but I would hv prefered it to be more herby; just sayin'.

We enjoyed the tender cuts of meat, properly cooked innards and soft tau foo pok. Mushrooms were also a good addition, but I would ask them to exclude the choy sum during my next visit.

If you're likely to have a guilt trip from all that melt-in-your-mouth fatti(er) cuts, you can order some poh li sang choy (that's iceberg lettuce for the not-so-familiar) topped with fried shallots and oyster sauce. We didn't.

If you go for breakfast/brunch/early lunch, you might get to order yao char kwai to dip into the rich soup. We didnt.

Service is fast and courteous - it's always nice to see people working hard to ensure great customer service.

Worth going for if you are hankering for good BKT and could not be bothered to drive all the way to BKT HQ in Klang.

“Very nice Herbal version of BKT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Very tasty, with lots of Herbs (当归). Unlike the Singapore version with pepper soup base and pork only, green vegetable, mushroom (金针菇),Dao Pok, different parts of pig intenstines are added to the soup.
I prefer it to be slightly less salty though. Also, If you can't take strong Chinese Herbs, don't drink too much of the soup. I have hot flash effect after drinking too much. But that's me.
It's worth the visit.

“Yummy yummy bah kut teh - pork cooked in herbal soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a very popular dish from Kuala Lumpur. This dish can be consumed anytime of the day.
The soup is Chinese herb based but there are light, dark, thick soup. Normally served in clay pots steaming hot or in individual bowls . Many firstimers would stop after the first try. Very local Malaysian Chinese fare you should not miss when in Malaysia especially in KL!

“Recommended By Friends and Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We have heard about this place from both Malaysians as well as foreigners, and decided to visit it while on holiday here in KL. We can actually find it's name and address in our GPS.

We arrive here on a Saturday lunch hour and was surprised to find available parking as well as a nice big table for a family of 7 (4 adults and 3 kis). We were seated quickly and our order arrived equally fast. The soup was tasty and the meat was nicely done, delivered in a clay pot that was piping hot Other than the meat, it came which mushrooms, vegetables, and dried bean curd. An extra vegetable dish that we ordered was also nicely done

The service was friendly, and they topped up the soup without being asked. They were also thoughtful and gave us a chair with a backrest for our youngest son, so that he could lean back and not fall of the stools that the patrons usually sit.

Overall, our bill for the vegetable and bak kut teh came up to about RM100, including drinks.

“Best BKT in PJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

BKT taste is very subjective and especially since there are many versions of BKT going around.
For me I like the strong herbal taste and it comes in claypot, guarantee to make you all sweaty.
I have tried other BKTs but this is the one for me. They also have the oily rice which runs out fast.

For best experience, go early. Servers only breakfast and lunch.
