We were fortunate that one of the staff was really helpful to guide us on the dishes to order. The pandan chicken was nice as well as the Nonya rojak. The chendol is a must try.

Ordered several dishes, taste good in general. But I found nothing special for the fried fish which relatively more expensive. Pandan drinks and lemongrass drinks taste normal.

If you are from the northern of Peninsular Malaysia especially Penang and Kedah, I highly recommend you to dine in at this restaurant. The taste is quite similar to our northern style. The spicy sambal is the one we are looking for. The ayam pongteh is delicious. The lemon grass drink is quenching your thirst. Pay a visit and feel... More

Very good place for Nyonya cuisine. Nice authentic Nyonya food. New and clean. The cendol is good. You get to add the Gula Melaka yourself from the bottle.

Friendly service with good food. We had the pie tee (not great), pandan chicken, itek tim (salted veg and duck soup) and kangkung belacan (good) and chilli crab (yum!), finished with durian chendol (yum, yum!). Worth a try.

Chap Chye : failed. More like a mere fried cabbage. Cabbage green still exist. Pie Tee: filling was ok but the pie Yee cup was soft and the Chilli chuka was too sweet. They were out of Ayam for the Ayam Buah keluak so they sold us just the nut. The gravy was good so the dish should be better... More

Was queuing up at another restaurant nearby and decided to give this restaurant a try. One of the better restaurants that serves authentic Nyonya food. Food is good and pricing reasonable as the portion is big. Service is good and staff are friendly.

Chance upon this place and tried their food. It was all so delicious. Though I can't remember the exact name of the food, it does show me how some Peranakan food taste like. Wifi available and it's halal too!
