Dept lunch but felt disappointed...

Out of the above, the signature platter, sambal fish, cereal prawns, and nai bai were nice... As for the rest, below average, probably some tze char places out there can do a better job...

The platter was pretty good, especially the fried baby squid, couldn’t stop eating that!

The sambal fish was something different from what I’ve tried out there. It was dried sambal (and not that oily) on fried fishes, for those who can’t take spicy food, can try to remove the sambal but this was actually quite yum~

Their cereal prawns were good, the prawns were fresh enough and filled with cereal smell, nice...

The nai bai was crunchy and sweet, and quite impressed by the fried enoki mushroom combi, this dish can order...

Here comes those not-so-recommended dishes...

The fish maw with crabmeat was not say very impressive, but decent...

The sea cucumber and abalone were a little too hard and got that fishy smell somehow, I think they need more time to prep their sea cucumber and braise the abalone...

Suggest to skip the heaven & earth pork rib, tasted like over-cooked (chao-tah?) coffee pork rib which left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth. Moreover, the pork ribs were kinda fatty to my likings...

Can also skip the yam with ginko nuts, couldn’t taste / see the ginko, it’s like just yam purée with coconut milk, taste wise...like a waste of my calories...=X

Lastly, the chilli crab, smells good, looks good but...a little too sweet and the buns were rather cold, lower than my expectation, suggest to skip too...

Overall, some hits and some misses, suggest to go for ala carte instead of the set menu since some of the dishes were below average in my opinion...

This deep fried sambal fish dish is one of Lai Huat’s signature dishes. The sambal is spicy and provides a great yummy kick to the fish. A must order whenever you visit

I used to go to the Lai Huat near my grandma's house when it was a coffeeshop years ago. Now, in an air-conditioned restaurant, the food was just pricey and rather mediocre (esp the sambal pomfret). The fried rice was good though.

There are many restaurants that serve this dish but this one excels above the others. It's not too wet nor dry and the smooth beehoon is tasty and full of crab flavor. Yummy yummy yummy. Posted by Ah Leong San 2015 October 3

Very well fried pomfret and best of all is the sambal chilli is the dry type. With the dry type of chilli those who are not too keen on chilli can eat the fish without fear of it being too spicy. It's an excellent dish. Posted by Ah Leong San 2015 October 3
