Their interior reminds me of old kungfu movies. Their food was standard (quality and prices). Half steamed chicken for RM 20, it's too wet and tender. Rice ball for RM 0.4 each. Staff also not very friendly but helpful enough.

The place was half full as we visited during off peak hours, approximately around 2pm. We sat down and the waitress took our orders. When we did not order their 'signature' chicken rice, the waitress told us to leave. Upon feeling so insulted, we decided...More

The food here is terrible. The chicken is tasteless, the rice ball also tasteless, but luckily the otak otak was edible. Anyway, you will still find a long queue outside the shop. We came here because our parents cannot walk far. So, we choose the...More
