We ordered abacus seed, vinegar pig trotters and Yong Tau Fu. Like the abacus seed best - soft, able to taste the yam with generous garnishing. Vinegar pig trotters is decent would be better with stronger ginger taste. Yong Tau Fu is average. Overall a...More

It's been a while since I came here. The best dish is the fried rice whereas the "mei chai pork belly" tasted not very fresh. Still, food is ok but needs to improve

I like the food here. Abacus was very authentic. It was full house when I visited. The service was okay. Ambience was warm. Stir-fried lettuce was tasty.

But now it is rather ordinary. A famous Hakka dish, Yam Abacus, doesn’t have the texture of yesteryear.
