My friends and I have our monthly dinner at this restaurant. We order around 6-7 dishes. We have not been disappointed with restaurant. Prices of dishes too are reasonable. Good place to have a dinner with family and friends.

No frills, no fancy fushion dishes. Just the normal, noisy, air-conditioned Chinese restaurant that was common up to perhaps the early 1990s :-)

I was there with my clients recently after a meeting. We ordered the cod fish which was steamed to perfection, the tauhu, steamed egg with salted fish and few other dishes. They came very fast and was very tasty. The cod fish was fresh and didnot have a fishy smell. The price was quite reasonable for the five of us.... More

Like many mid range old Chinese restaurants in the old neighbourhoods in KL/PJ, Sam You served good food and offered decent service. Forget about any ambience. It is more a dinner place as such it was rather quiet at lunch. for a Chinese restaurant. We had steam cod fish (min order was 400 gsm) - it was done perfectly well,... More

This is a run of the mill Chinese restaurant serving traditional dishes. The price is reasonable and often a place for business lunches. The food is good while the service reasonable. Don't expect to be pampered.

This restaurant is nestled within the old business center of Petaling Jaya. Parking can be a difficult during the day time, but for the dinner period it was easy. The staff is attentive and friendly. The place is fully air-conditioned and it can be cold at times (be prepared to bring a jacket). The food here is delicious, portions are... More

My family and I have been regular customers here for the past ten years(usually 7 people though more during family gatherings). My father has a strong fondness for the place and I can understand why. The food is tasty and usually worth the price (though I need to stress that the restaurant catered towards large groups that can split the... More
