Such a delicious and affordable meal. The portions are large and generous. I will definitely return.

Five spice rolls: Generous and crispy. Just not much meats inside but still good.

Cabbage chap chye: Taste is good, have loads of cabbage inside just not much of the other stuff you can find inside other chape chye.

Ayam buah keluak: yummy and generous pieces of chicken.

Pork belly: Abit fatty but yummy and they give you an egg too. If you don't want greasy and thick layers of fat maybe not for you.

Dessert boh boh cha cha: Generous chunks of yam and sweet potatoes. So rich in coconut too.

We tried the laksa and the curry. I am afraid to say I do not find the laksa creamy nor fragrant. The curry sauce is ok but the meat tasted tough and tasteless. I suspect its probably becasue it hasn't been stewed long enough in the curry sauce for taste to flavour the chicken. I am shocked to find the foods of such a standard since I have heard good things about this brand.

Food is quite tasty and good to go in a group to order more food. The sting ray is tender and the gong bao sauce for the frog leg is flavourful although I find the frog meat abit tough. If you wanna eat frog leg porridge and you find Chinatown and geyland too far this is another option. I think so reviews find the portion larger and thus more affordable but I think the portions are average and pricing pretty standard.

The kuehs are good and the fillings are generous. They also make really nice traditional white sugar kuehs and brown sugar kuehs.

So delicious and tender. Goes so well with rice. I will definitely order again in a heartbeat.

I gonna have to agree with the other reviews in Google . This will be the first and the last time I am eating here. I ordered the duck porridge. My god the diameter of the bowl is only 1cm longer than my ezlink card. Can you imagine how small that bowl of porridge is. How dare you charge $6.80 for that tiny thing. And the taste is really ordinary. I really should have just eaten at the food court. I have post a pic of the porridge for you all to reference. Patronise this place at your own risk.

The wonton ingredients such as the wonton are pretty meaty and juicy. The char siew is also quite nice. The noodles however can be more chewy but I am just being nit picky. It's not quite a decent pack of wanton becasue I ordered via grab.

Sorry I do not like this hor fun, their is no wok fired taste. Plus the beef is tough. Don't order it, be warned.

This garlic naan and curry fish. The fish is flavourful and the sauce is nice. Its not too spicy but u gotta get the naan fast or it will turn hard

Chee cheong fun is decent when paired with the nice chilli. Just expensive as it's $2.80. But I was craving for chee cheong fun so I will buy. 😜

I took away the Nasi lemak set 4. It has fried fish, chicken wing and eggs. I like their chilli too.
