As a fellow Malaysian evaluating Malaysian food, i would say that the food is just mediocre. When we look at the portions, a RM10 vege portion is same as the portion i got in normal mixed economy rice, which is very little. They did not show us the sea food weight before they cook to us, and we were a... More

Their deep fried squid is a MUST try! Every time we visit, we order 1kg of deep fried squid! Authentic Chinese cuisine. We had their steamed fish which was soooo delicious! Absolutely friendly owners and staff. Very reasonably priced. I'm very very impressed!

Went here because of the special noodles - noodles of fire, the noodles they put in aluminum foil and have some fire on it. Other food are average and in small portion.

Fat Mum cooks the food right there in front of you. It's fresh and delicious. It's not a flash restaurant by any means, but it has everything you need and the food is great quality.

Don't expect much! Place is small. Food is average vs the price. Don't order fish... Taste no good and small and expensive. Well , I will not go back.

Wonderful food, quickly prepared and friendly, smiling service as well. Good cheap beer to go with the lovely cheap food. She told me she used to cook for 500 so no wonder she had no problems feeding two. People at the table next to us had eaten there a year before & had a special dish, not offered on the... More

I am very confused by the ratings for this place. The food was very average. The portions miniscule. Rendang was poor quality chewy meat in an insipid watery sauce. Every dish was amateurish, the service was slovenly and slow. It felt like being with a group of unhappy people at a funeral in a "Deliverance" location. If you are in... More

This little modest Chinese restaurant located at Pantai Tengah serves home cooked food recipes at its best. Fried noodles or dishes with rice is surprisingly tasty here. Price wise can be a bit on the high side for such a modest set up. Then again, tasty foods and fresh ingredients don't come cheap. A recommended little restaurant to visit when... More
