Description: This is not the Fong Lye that already has some reviews though it has been mentioned on a forum
Reviewed 17 October 2017

Of all the Fong Lye outlets, this is undoubtedly the best. Food tastes great and original and service is good. Though the space (ground floor) may seem a little pack at times with the crowd, there are no complaints and worth it. Parking may be a little challenging but valet service is at hand.

I have been coming here since my working days and that's where I have always feel the "home cooked" taste.
Simple dishes from Taiwan and having circled almost all their sister restaurants and branches this is where I land up most of the time.
Almost weekly dinners are done here.
Small and tight spaces but depending on individual tastes this restaurant have delivered from simple lala, to smoked duck, fish in various ways, 3 cups chicken up to simplest of meal the sweet potato porridge.

I took a friend from Hong Kong there for dinner three nights ago. Being from Hong Kong he knows his Chinese food very well and he was impressed. Being the day after a very long weekend there were no clams which was a shame but it gives us an excuse to go back again soon. We had beef with green onions, a recommended chicken dish, french beans with minced meat, prawns with black pepper and plain rice. Everything was excellent including the dish of spicy tofu which is offered at the start of the meal. Parking can be difficult but there is a public -parking lot behind the building which usually has space.

Came with a table of 10 and had dinner here over the weekend.

Ordered approximately 8 dishes and sad to say, the taste of food have gone bad. I personally have been a regular over the 4-5 years and another on the table have been a regular customer for close to 30 years. Claypot chicken and sour soup was particularly disappointing as they just taste totally different. Tasted totally watered down.

Everyone on the table including grand pa and grand ma who have eaten here even longer than all of us, were all disappointed by the food served.

The floor manager and waiters and waitresses have all changed as well.

Perhaps the owners have sold off the business?

To pay 40-50 per person on average for all past visits over the years, we are greatly disappointed that the restaurant have chose to go down the road of average food.

One thing for sure, we will not return to this Fong Lye branch.

We went on Sunday during dinner time and the place was packed. Luckily there was one table left upstairs. We went to their restaurant located in Sri Hartamas. We liked the decor very much and the service provided by the waiter on the upper floor was excellent.
We would go there again for the food and service.
