used to be regular diner with family there. as times flies, the soup getting tasteless and we asked for refill, the staff only refill half bowl of soup for 5 person sharing. the soup taste like 1 portion added with 5 portion of water and salt. meat portion also getting lesser. even normal person can finished up 2 serving. chopstick and spoons are oily so bring your own wet tissue.

Went here to try out Sabah's Bak Kut Teh after we went to the nearby Sunday market. We order our Bak Kut Teh from an old man (I suspect the owner) & he said their "special" is Chicken BKT (I thought BKT special should be pork) & amazingly they don't have anything else on the menu that time but the Chicken BKT. The place was dirty ( got small roach on our table) & service was bad (we waited quite a while before orders being taken eventhough there were hardly any customers & the old man was rude). The Chicken BKT was plain taste & includes small pieces of chickens with its feathers still on! What's even more shocking was when we're ready to pay, he charged us RM15/bowl! I said "how come on the board written RM8.50?". He told me "owh...this is Chicken. Special 1...". We know he lied & took advantage of us tourist but we paid anyway because we don't want to make a scene. So my advice, avoid this stall. If you have to try BKT, try other stalls & don't forget to ask the price of a menu before you order!

The foods are nice and delicious. Fast service. Reasonable price. Always pack with people. Cleanliness of the place is okay. Should upgrade the restaurant and add some tables too.

no one speaks a word of English. asked for the price of their noodle, lady came with a calculator and pressed 6. finally an old man (he is Chinese Malay who speaks cantonese) came in, so i asked why the aloe juice is bitter, he said i m toxic (上火), when he gave me the bill, i asked him why it costed more, he argued with me. when i asked a small portion, they gave me a large one instead. terrible service! never go back there. They cheat. I have been to other family run business, people are much nicer than here.
