One of the best bah kut teh I've ever eaten in my life. The soup is flavourful , you can tell the difference if you went to another bah kut teh restaurant. The price are reasonable as well. The food they served are really appetising and definitely will not be disappointing.

A good friend of mine insisted that we take our afternoon snack at Good Taste Restaurant (we had been feasting all morning long!) (we also have a diet problem!!). Bah Kut Teh is believed to have originated in Klang where the Chinese "Coolie" workers of old used to gather communally and purchase pork bones and meat off cuts to be... More

The food at this place is very impressive. The ba kut teh is highly reccomended with the tofu fish! You might need to order a few things as serving sizes can be small.

Seafood Bak kuh teh was fantastic! Go here! If you can and have the time, try the regular pork one as well if you are not familiar with it. This is a bak kuh teh place, don't order anything else - you will be wasting your time.

It served with fresh seafoods and the soup based is strong. Other than Bak Kut Teh, they also serve Yellow Wine ( 黄酒) which best combination with chicken. Also, the Salted Vegetable Soup (咸菜汤) which best combination with fish. Must try... Sandakan trip will never complete without a taste in this restaurant.

Normally Bak Kut Teh, which means "Pork Bone Soup" in hokkien, are served with pork meat or other parts of the pig. But here, their speciality is seafood! A very good visit for all first timers who are visiting Sandakan as the taste is very refreshing and yummy. The seafood are very fresh, I'm sure you will "add-on" more and... More

Serves the best seafood bak kut teh. The "lai mong"fish is out of this world and prawns are also freshest of the fresh.

This restaurant is famous for 'Bak Kut Teh'. It's a dish with meat in chinese herb soup (black in colour). There are many varieties of pork meat and internal organs that you can order but all served in the herb soup. They also have prawn, fish and vegetable.
