This place was highly recommended by a local. Located in the 1926 Heritage budget hotel, the restaurant was modest and unassuming. Many other patrons were locals (I.e. Authenticity check, not-tourist trap check!)
We ordered the spring rolls, kapitan chicken, stewed lamb with ladies fingers, and Assam prawns.
The food was hearty and unpretentious and I would definitely go again.

we ordered the spring roll, chicken rice set, kapitan chicken, lamb stew, fried kang kong, yam and duck soup. i love the kapitan chicken but the rest of the food was average. if you are around that area, drop by otherwise, no worth travelling all the way there.

A hidden gem within the 1926 Heritage Hotel. The recommended food included: Kapitan Chicken, Hainese lamb stew, Hainese spring roll. Unfortunately the Hainese Chicken Rice was sold out during our visit. The owner Wong is very friendly and will guide you through the menu. He will also do necessary arrangement (whether small, medium or large) on the food portion according to the food items you ordered.
The restaurant is close on every Monday.

We often ate at the restaurant in the 1926 Heritage Hotel. After a day sight seeing it was nice to be able to walk to the restaurant and then to collapse in our room! It is not a fancy restaurant but the food here is amazing and it is packed out on weekends with locals. The dishes were explained to us and something different recommended to us every time. We were never disappointed. They have a website www.hainanesedelights.com.
