“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

One of the best "choo char" restaurants in town operated by a friendly Mr. Choo. Tek Sen is listed in Lonely Planet. Go for the ray fish curry, fried roasted pork and fried water convolvulus (eng chai or kangkong) with "balacan".

“Brilliant, go no further”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

Duck special, omelette with onion slices, prawns in tamarind sauce and some lovely spicy vegetable. Amazing. All wonderful, staff helpful and food terrific. Very busy and full of local people.
Sometimes have to wait a few minutes. Just do it!!!

“Great Value and Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

We arrived by 7:30pm and many people had already been waiting for seats. As a Hong Kong guy, I have to say that the Chinese food here is very good! We ordered a dish of chicken, in Chinese+Malaysian style, which was simply delicious. I guess that the chef used some lemongrass to make it very tasty. Although it's very hot, we enjoyed the foods very much while sweating.
