Visited this very busy restaurant, arrived approx. 7.30 and was lucky enough to be seated straight away. Within 15 minutes there was a lengthy queue. Excellent Chinese food. We chose the signature dishes and thoroughly enjoyed the Twice cooked pork with chilli, spinach with fungus and egg, sweet and sour pork with steamed rice. Appeared to be lots of regulars which is always a good sign. Plenty of noise and activity.

Call ahead to make reservation, this restaurant practically packed from the minute they open til close. Tell the staff you want a "Michael jackson" drink, you wouldn't have guessed what actually it is :) soya bean drink mixed with grass jelly, surprisingly a good combo

When a local Penang foodie recommends, it must be good. So armed with a sketchy map, no address, we managed to find this restaurant: the only bright light on Carnarvon Street.
There was already a queue when we got there past 7pm, which is a sure sign of great food to come! While waiting, we studied the menu: so much to choose from, everything also want! Basically, if you order from their star-recommendations, you won't go wrong. While we were tucking into our numerous dishes, we sudddenly heard shouts. One of the staff was waving his arms, signalling that the restaurant has sold out of food and closed for the night's business. We were shocked: it was not yet 8:30pm!!!
So come early, have a feast! It's really good value for money, and everything's fresh and yummilicious!!

This a great restaurant which started life in a different location as a hawker stall so make sure you have their specials. They've been cooking them for a long time and do it right every time. Full of locals, which is a giveaway to quality and value. We couldn't help but go back to have more meals. Their pork and chilli is just fantastic as was the Asian spinach, fungus and egg, the chicken and ginger was just wonderful. If fact every plate we had was an experience we raved about. Also loved the lime drink in a mug.
Great food, great price. A beauty!!

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.
