Well worth the price. Seafood not that great but meats and vegetables are excellent. Roast meat selections runs out pretty fast, best to pre order a few hours before dinner time.

Really like the food here, especially the char Siew, it melt in your month. Must come early to make sure it's not sold out. The price is also Super reasonable.

Went there on a recommendation by a friend. We tried the steamed white fish, a sliced pork dish, spicy Kang kung and crab. Every dish was unique and had a signature taste. My Malaysian friends showed me how many elderly Chinese patrons were around ... an indication of the authenticity of the food being served. The restaurant is a family... More

Overseas restaurant is an icon in the Kuala Lumpur Chinese Restaurant scene. The food has been consistent over the years. It is possible to eat "cheaply", by ordering the usual basics, which is still tasty, and it is possible to dine like an emperor as well. But prince or peasant, the food is always good.

Food was definitely fantastic. However there seemed to be lack of staff as we could not get much attention during our meal.

Came here again to have their "Char Siew Roast" pork. No regret, very close by to the hotel I was staying (Park Royal) and their food is very good and best of all reasonably priced. If you don't want to miss their roast meat, suggest you go early for lunch or dinner.

This place has been around for many years and still retains its old charm. The food is delectably KL chinese. People come here for their char siew which melts in your mouth but I think a bit overrated compared to their other dishes. The sucking pig is very good and their sharks fin soup is well rounded and tasty. Only... More

This has got to be my fav Chinese restaurant in KL. Parking is limited so we typically valet it. The restaurant's decor is a little dated but service is quick and efficient. The main attraction is the food. The BBQ pork or "charsiew" is divine, the steamed fish "soon hock" was fresh and delicious, and everything else we ordered was... More
