We stumbled on this place while walking, and although it has a cafeteria-type feel, the food is both tasty and well priced. Much better than some of the very bland food we found in other places.

This restaurant never let us down if you are looking for breakfast with local food. The dim-sum here are fresh and steamed new for you. The restaurant open from early morning until lunch. Highly recommended here. 😁

When dim sum items go from freezer to steamer, this diner is not impressed. Also offered are versions of local specialties, khanom jiin and Phuket-style noodles, which were not bad.
