we came on a friday afternoon for lunch to avoid the crowds, still was a bit difficult to find parking though.

we enjoyed our meal here. ordered the signature dish as recommended by the other reviewers. roasted pork and tasted a bit sweet. the bittergourd with salted egg and steamed fish were nice as well.

Locals throng this eatery, so should tourists, for this value for money, tasty food. Home-cooked dishes with super fast service. Centrally located but parking can be a problem at peak hours.

Tek Sen was suggested by the manager of our hotel, it was a great suggestion. The double cooked pork was very good as was the black pepper chicken, the mixed vegetables and the brussels sprouts with garlic were delicious. We enjoyed our meal here so much that before leaving Penang we stopped on the way to the airport, two days later, for another meal. If you don't like waiting for a table get there early, within minutes of opening the place is full.

Was recommended by hotel to come for a try. Quite crowded in the evening but I were not impressed. I was expecting a nice zi char stall but this was a Home styled cooking. Too oily to my liking

The restaurant is located at very good point in Georgetown. It is very famous, you can just tell the name of the restaurant to the taxi or local people. The taste of food is great. The "all time favourite" dishes are extraordinary, especially the homemade tofu. It is very near to some iconic places, such as Khoo Kongsi Temple, only 500 meter walk. You can have lunch and continue your Georgetown tour. Please check the time. It opens for lunch till 2.30 pm and open again for dinner. Just some staff can speak English.
