Traditional Chinese restaurant. Great food at very good prices. Loved the Dongpo Rou, fried spring rolls and other dishes that I cannot recall their mandarin names. Service was great and dishes was served quickly.

I had the pleasure of taking my friends to dine here as I wanted to share my excellent experience here. Once again Foong Wei Heong did not disappoint. From the daily special of braised pig trotter to the honey glazed pork belly the dinner excelled. Will be back again next year.

Met up with relatives for a get-together dinner. Had a variety of delectable dishes some of which I hadn't tried before. The outstanding dishes were Honey Roast Pork with Garlic, Tofu and also "big spring roll" Service was attentive and efficient. Waiters and waitresses also spoke English.

As long as you don't mind fairly simple decor the food here is really quite decent. very popular venue on a Saturday night, but service is efficient. Well worth a visit.
