“Bargain”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

New Man Tai is a simple, straightfoward chinese restaurant in the heart of Gaya Street that is dirt cheap - RM15 for two (2 mains, 2 teas) including a 3RM tip for lunch.
We had chicken, greens and rice, and also beef, greens and noodles. Fresh and sufficient.

They had enough English to explain the menu, patiently waiting for us to make up our minds (not like some places that just end up ignoring us)

Can't go wrong

“Quick”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

My family enjoys the food here. I too enjoy the food here. They're really generous on the portion and ingredient and not to forget, they are really good cooks. They have quick service and serves up the most awesome prawn omelette.

“The best Mee in Kota Kinabalu”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Man Tai has perfected the art of marinating pork and serving it with their own homemade variety of noodle. Their signature dish satisfies both the body and the senses. Interestingly, the best food in Kota Kinabalu is dished out at street side cafes and not at upmarket restaurants. Man Tai has maintained their quality over the years and is highly recommended,
