We ate at the J. Gaya Street restaurant, had sweet & sour pork, steamed rice, mixed vegetables, & Thai spare ribs, all very good and great value, would recommend this place if ever you are in KK.

This restaurant is a chain of two outlets (that I have located in Kota Kinabalu). One outlet is in Palm Square, Centre Point and the other is ground floor of City Mall, Luyang. It is one of my favourite eating places as they serve delicious food at reasonable prices and fast service. The outlets are clean too especially the one in Centre Point. Unlike many Chinese coffeeshops, the tables are placed a decent handsbreadth or two away (ha ha...) and they clean tables pretty quick. Many Malaysians are willing to overlook structural or hygiene flaws where great food is concerned (which is why dubious-looking places can attract queues) but this place has both cleanliness and good food. My favourites are the BBQ pork noodles, the sweet n sour fish rice, the King Do pork noodles, the double boiled soups, the seafood flat noodle dish ('wa tan ho') and the chicken rice. No such thing as overcooked or cold or strange tasting. Recommended a million times!

This is a no frills local eatery that has very good steamed chicken rice and all sorts of local dishes. The roast duck is pretty good too. It's a pretty big shop but not immediately obvious, on the 4th floor of Centrepoint Shopping Centre. My chicken came smooth and juicy.

This is the J. Gaya branch of the restaurant. The word restaurant doesn't really apply to the place as it is more a fast food Chinese and it just feels like it. It was about 7.30 pm and they were out of duck and grilled chicken. We ordered wonton soup, barbecued pork and pork fried rice. The soup and fried rice were generous helpings and we had only a small portion of the barbecued pork which was quite tasty. The wontons on the other hand were quite bland, the rice alright with the spicy sauce which was served on the side. We only paid 25.60 MR and felt quite full.
