“Probably the best in Tanjung Aru”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Had dinner at this place. Vege soup has generous amount of mushroom and seafood, fish fillet dish was yummy but more expensive than butter prawns which tastes good too. Lemon chicken was hot and crispy and try eating it with the lemon to add more zest to it. Dinner comes with snacks and chinese tea while you wait for your food but will be charged to your bill.

“Tasty Malaysian Chinese food”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Great food, period! Everything was what the reviews claimed to be: tasty food and reasonable prices. A short drive from Shangri-la Tg Aru resort. The Peking duck (half) had thick slices of fillet and enough to feed family of 6. The bones were used to make this thick soup which was surprisingly not as salty as expected. A nice thirst quencher.
Other must-try are steamed cabbage which was a simple but tasty half loaf of cabbage and my favorite was black bean sauce fish fillet, very Malaysian style.
Food came within 5 mins and everything was served in 10mins.
Highly recommended.

“Nice restaurant in Tg. Aru”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

An old Chinese restaurant near Tg. Aru. This restaurant always in our list when we looking for dinner in this area, normally we order Peking Duck(with duck soup together), dumplings & a vege can fit 2-3 people with full stomach.
A Japanese friend said this is the best duck dish she ever had. Call for reservation if you plan going here after 8pm, it will always be crowded.

“Beijing Duck and typical Chinese food”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This restaurant is on a small community outside KK city center on the way to Airport.

Restaurant is open at 6 pm. when we arrived there at 5:30 pm we have to wait for a while.

Beijing duck is good with Beijing style (not Hong Kong style) and excellent soup.

Food is excellent in which I believe is Hakka Chinese original. One of the best meals we have had in KK. Glad we find this restaurant.

“typical chinese restaurant without fancy deco”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

yummy dishes are pork leg, steam and fried dumplings, peking duck is delicious. crispy skin and deboned. rolled with homemade chinese pancake with sauce. duck bones used to cook cream soup. shop environment looks outdated and lights are very dim. table clothes full of holes but air conditioner works good. food is delicious but the restaurant needs a fresh new paint and new tiles to replace the swimming pool tiles..
