Very good Dim Sum - but be warned, they don't have them for long. Here it seems to be mainly for breakfast and by lunch time, there are none left. We arrived at 12:30 and took the last few remaining pieces.

The dim sum are good but not many varieties. The noodles during lunch are good especially the "Hong Toe Meen" and "Wat Tan Ying Yong." Fishball and "Sui Kow" soup are also our favourite.

We arrived at what we thought would be a good time around 10.30am but this place is so popular with the locals and Malaysian tourists that pretty much all the dim sum had already sold out. We grabbed what we could but when we wanted more we were told it had already all gone! What we had was really good... More

Friendly staff despite us being absolutely clueless, we came late (12.30 ish) so the dimsum trolley on had limited options, yet what we had was absolutely delicious, but I would suggest going really early to truly get the best options, we also enjoyed fried rice and green vegetables which were both super fresh and delicious! and we were entirely surrounded...

My Fiancé extended family has eaten in this restaurant for four generations, but this was my first time and I'm an Australian not used to spicy food. However I needn't have worried the food was plentiful very tasty and it would appear like all Penang food very reasonably priced. March I'm told is the wrong time of year to go... More

We stumbled across this place 2 years ago when we were looking for breakfast and liked it. So this time we've come back to Penang we visited the place again. Not disappointed! Everything is still the same. It's a basic no fuss place with a good selection of dim sum dishes. But our favorite is the chicken and century egg... More
