We went here for 2 times in our 4 days trip The foods are tasty and fresh. The price is quite high but I think it's reasonable enough. Recommend this restaurant !

Dec 26 , we had a lunch over there. The decoration was quite unique ! We had 8 dishes which were all good! The smell and taste of the famous Curry Fish head was great! We didn't expect such high standard Chinese food !

This place was recommended by a friend and it met expectations. Food was good and served quickly, given how busy they were. If you want peace and quiet, go upstairs as the ground floor seating area is next to the open kitchen which has a very noisy extractor fan. Well worth visiting.

So far all their cooking is very masterful. You can taste the difference in dish cooked between a master cook and an apprentice. However, parking is extremely difficult to find so a lot of time I had given up eating at this place.

Good food at slight higher than other similar non halal chinese restaurants but have to admit that taste wise, the food is good here. Most of the great tasting dishes are the pork dishes; like roasted pork leg, pork belly hotpot, and pork neck slices. A must try restaurant in Brunei.

This restaurant have the best curry fish head in Brunei. Not halal so I will recommend this to my non Muslim friends. Aside from that there are a number of dishes that are good such as the sweet and sour pork, pork knuckle, kailan fry kailan and many more.

If you are a Curry Fish Head enthusiast you will know there is two types of Curry Fish Head. The normal curry, and the Nonya Curry, or better known as Assam.
