The food is not bad except that the portioning served did not equate with the price charged. Due to popularity, the waiting time is long, especially when you have children. Next time we need to prepare some snacks for the kids. We could easily overlook these but when the person who came to take our order wasn't too patient, she showed signs of discontentment when we took "too long a time" to order (my foreign guests could not understand why this person behaved that way when we chose to patronize this famous restaurant). But my party commended highly on the migrant servers that work very fast and efficient and alert too. Sadly a couple of the local ones avoided eye contact even when we waved in the air. :(
My guest also confirmed that this restaurant has become a pricey place to eat.

Food is good, but sometimes bit pricey. Be there early or after peak hour to avoid long waiting time.

Good tasty home cooked style. Mixture of Cantonese and Hokkien dishes. But can be bit pricey if you order fish and other special dishes.

We went to this expecting a traditional restaurant and were surprised by the open air nature of it. Despite that we loved the food and enjoyed the hustle bustle around us. The service was great and what we wanted when coming to another country for the experience of the culture around us. We did get there late in the day and they had run out of their specials but it didn't stop the choice of food available.

Tek Sen used to be really delicious, however the food standard has dropped. There are better restaurants out there. It is a good place for tourist to dine there but not for locals. We had a few dishes that was a tad too salty. The dishes lack "ooomph" and it was pretty disappointing. Perhaps the cook was rushing out dishes as the place was packed with people.
