“My family fav dining place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great restaurant with great food. Authentic chinese cuisine restaurant. We have to book at least 1 day ahead in order to get a table. The place is mostly full even on weekdays. We like their signature dish such as Steamed drunken chicken, Nyonya Assam Fish Curry, Fried bitter gourd with salted egg yolk and Asparagus with sambal. Other specialty is the fish steamboat and 8-course dinner.

“Delicious food and helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

This is a great restaurant with really delicious food. The clientele is mainly local so you know the food must be good. We booked ahead for a Saturday evening meal and we were very pleased we did as when we arrived it was a full house with many people waiting.

Very special little restaurant that you will always come back to for its tasty cookings! Every dish meets your expectation and quite satisfying! Restaurant is open over a decade and you'll fine quite authentic local Chinese cuisine here!

“Fell upon this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Aborted attempt to eat at china house, left two of us wandering around georgetown on a sat night without much of a clue where to eat. Found this place 1 hour before closing and had a great meal. Lovely staff, good advice on choices that had no meat, tasty food and good value. Perhaps we should wander around some more. Give this a go if you are in town and fancy a place where local Chinese families eat...we sang happy birthday along with next table. A hoot.

“Very good Chinese restaurant close to our hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

This restaurant is very close to where our hotel is in the heart of Georgetown. Being our first meal in Penang, we were not disappointed. Their crispy pork and assam prawns were outstanding. You can tell this is the place to be as the patrons eating there were mostly locals.
