“Great food everytime!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Their char siew ( BBQ Pork) and Roast Pork are a MUST try when you visit this restaurant. Any dish you order would very likely be really delicious. I have been here 2 times and each time, different dishes were ordered and each dish was super yummy! This time, we orderd the Onion Chicken, Hot Plate Venison and Saute Broccouli wtih Garlic. Their portions are generous and by the 2nd dish, we were getting full already but the chicken was too delectable to not eat it! The 2 of us had 3 dishes, the char siew and roast pork starter with another chicken roll starter and one nata de coco longan dessert which amounted to RM 118. Pretty decent for the quality. Can't wait to return!

“Fantastic Char Siew”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Reservations of table and char Siew is required. Food is always consistent and of high quality. Fish and big head prawn is a must.

“Never failed me or my guests”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Specializing in Cantonese food, this restaurant sources top-quality produce and meats to serve to their customers. I cannot recall one dish that I didn't think was up to scratch although I've visited this restaurant at least ten times. One of the house specialities is their unique preparation of giant fresh-water shrimp where the shrimp are cooked in molasses and dark soy with garlic being used with abandon. As others have mentioned, their roast barbecued pork (cha siu) is top-notch as they use pork with heavy marbling. Soups are always tasty and together a precisely steamed live marble goby fish (soon hock), one couldn't ask for better from a restaurant.

Prices are steep. No two ways about it so only go there when you really feel you need a great meal.

One word of warning is that the restaurant is not 5 star in its ambience and surroundings. But the food certainly makes up for this.

“Bbq prince duck 皇子鸭!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

The bbq prince duck is a must try. At myr25 each it is definitely worth it and you don't get this elsewhere. Two of us (ladies) finished one of this.

However the charsiew was too oily and fatty for me. They no longer serve dimsum.

Alot of soups required booking in advance.

Restaurant provides free WiFi too
