Unpretentious restaurant, really good food, menu in English.
Was very busy when we were there (probably a result of Trip Advisor!) and we had to wait for a table. Value OK.
Would recommend.

The food was good and tastey. A nice mix of ingredients. The staff was very nice. But keep in mind it is just a regular chinese restaurant.

Simple deco with old fashioned steel table and stool. Nice aroma of authentic chinese home cooked meal. The signature dish that I like is Roasted pork with cili padi and Assam curry black pompano.

This is a great place. Just what I like.
Simple plastic chairs and as is decor.
But a great menu and great food. The service is classic no fuss but very efficient.
We had th double cooked pork with bird's eye chilli and the French beans with mince pork, and we can thoroughly recommend both.
The dish come in small, medium or large about 12, 14, 16 myr per.
This is the sort of place I could come back to again and again.
A little greasey if I had to pick a negative but fat is flavour.
Does get very busy and can be queues (worth the wait). Come early if you don't want o queue (6:30 - 7:00 ish).
Enjoy

Absolutely packed when we arrived and spilling onto pavement when we arrived. Full of locals which we took to be an excellent sign. Has English menu and staff have basic English. Food was delicious and at local prices. Decor not up to much (we sat on plastic patio chairs) but all that matters is the food! Highly recommend and easy to walk to in central Georgetown
