First of all....the restaurant doesn't open on time..(not at 11am, sometimes at 12 noon). The chicken chop is decent in size in taste, but definitely not the best. It is definitely not worth the hassle/trip to go down there for it other than it's cheaper compared to Singapore. However, the tze char bee hoon deserve a mention. It is one... More

Been to this restaurant many times, used to be my fav stop between KL and Singapore. It is always very crowded when I visit the restaurant; the serving staff has never been the most friendly bunch, but for good food, I will give leeways.

Have been frequenting this restaurant for as long as I can remember. The Chinese dishes are okay. Used to be a lot better especially the mee hailam but not any more. Chicken Chop still good but again not as good as it used to be.

The recommendations about this restaurant over the Internet are simply overrated. 1) the staff are poor trained. First they didn't allow us to sit in a larger table. Second, when we changed to another small table besides the door, a waiter said it's too "sempit". Wth? Then what's the point of you putting a table there for heaven sake? 2)... More

Overpriced chicken chop. (RM 16) Almost forget what I'm here for. The' root beer' they used is probably some low quality root beer (taste like it's already mix with water) cost Rm 6.5. Poorly trained staff- bad communication and service skill. I suggest you go for chicken chop selling in the mall. Any of it would taste better than this.... More

Location: Easy to locate Crowd: Pretty crowded on a Sunday afternoon Food: Grill chicken chop with mushroom sauce - Average food. The potato wedges were too thick and not crispy enough. Nothing too special to come back for. Service: so so
