“yummy bah kut teh...”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This place is one of the better bah kut teh (BKT) joints in Petaling Jaya. Nothing like chowing down here during a cold wet night. Their soup is full of flavour (not overpowering) packed with all the cuts of pork you fancy. Always add the spare parts (liver, intestine, etc) as those are the best parts when eating BKT. Apart from BKT they also serve up nice braised black mushroom which compliments the BKT well.

It is a normal corner restaurant which is rather open to the elements. No frills just good food with fast service. Highly recommended!

“Easily the best BKT and braised mushroom”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I can honestly say that the excellent taste and familiar friendly faces at Heng Kee have been maintained for the past >35 years, as long as I could remember since my childhood days.

Their "boiled to perfection" herbal soup base is medium bodied, which I personally prefer more to those sometimes overpowering versions in Klang (which is famous for BKT).

Pork dishes aside, the "pièce de résistance" for me has to be their braised black mushroom (shiitake), which is chunkily delicious and silky smooth. Never leave Heng Kee without trying out their braised mushroom!

“My favourite place to pig out - pork cooked in herbal soup”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

One of the best bak kut teh(pork rib tea) in PJ. The more famous areas are in Klang,Kepong and Johor. However, I prefer this nice place run by many family members located at a corner of PJ Old Town Section 5. It's not easy to locate if you are not familiar.
Try the various parts of the pig they serve, served with white rice and some boiled vegetables.
You can find hundreds of stalls selling this but hard to find one that's better than this one in PJ.
They only open around 5.15pm everyday except on Mondays.
I have brought guests from all over globe to this place and I have not had a single complaint. It's only waah, oohh, nice, nice can I have more!

“Delicious Pork Rib & Herbal Soup (local favourite)”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of the better "bak kut teh" literally meaning pork meat tea - a local nicety that usually eaten with white rice (or yam rice) with pork ribs that come with herbal soup in Klang Valley (Greater KL)

located in a corner single storey house in PJ old town, this would not be an ideal place for anyone who is picky about sanitary. not exactly class A with cleanliness but generally speaking, don't expect much if you intend to patronise local 'hawker' fares.

price wise, a little more expensive that getting your usual orders at street corner or coffee shops but quality compensates the price.

the waiters & waitresses are kinda act 'dumb' if you try to order a refill for the herbal soup (which they don't charge whereas other 'higher class' shops do) - a very disheartening experience. asking the owner (you'll notice him strolling around) would yield immediate action by his workers.

closed on Mondays, as Malaysian abattoirs for the swine are closed on that day weekly. Opens around 6pm, be prepared to wait for a table if you there on weekends after 7pm

“Love this place”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

This place happens to be one of my "MUST visit" places when i went to KL. I love its pork liver and pork tail. Sorry, I cant give details about the pricing as i never have chance to pay but be prepare to pay a bit more for the transportation of getting here than the food.
