    The service is quite well organized, efficient and fast. The dishes are very tasty. We ordered the sweet and sour pork, the belacan fried chicken (crispy outside, tender and juicy inside) and the roasted pork (sweet salty and chewy texture). My parents really enjoy their lunch, although they have to wait half an hour standing under the hot weather, they quickly made new friends while waiting in line. We really enjoyed our lunch experience and would love to try other dishes as well.

    Favorite Chinese restaurant in Penang! The stir fried kangkung with sambal and prawn has flavors unlike any other place, sooo addictive and delicious. The double roasted pork belly is to die for, perfectly caramelized on the outside, cut in bite sized pieces for the ultimate satisfaction. Another must try is the Nyonya fish head, with generous amount of fish meat and amazing Nyonya curry.Love how they elevate simple everyday dishes with such flavor (and a ton of wok hei of course). Prices are very reasonable too. No wonder it’s always popular and loved by locals and tourists alike.

    Food was delicious and service is fast too. Staff were knowledgeable and make good recommendations.Luckily we made reservations beforehand, advisable to make reservations before making a trip down as we see non stop snake queue while dining in.

    The portion size is quite large, which means you get a lot of food for your money. Not only that, but the food is incredibly fresh and bursting with delicious flavors. Every bite is a delightful experience for your taste buds. It's definitely worth the 30 minutes you might have to wait in line to get your hands on this amazing food.

    We waited for almost an hour to be seated. It must be good since the queue was so long. The food was not bad, nice zhi-char style. Except for the last dish, deep fried squid. Not very fantastic when we ate it. 4 out of 5 of us ate it and all 4 had mild food poisoning the next morning with diarrhea and vomiting. We had to stay indoor whole day on our 3rd day of holiday. This was a small episode of our encounter in Penang.
