Thoroughly enjoyed the salted egg prawns (very fresh prawns) and the yinyang kailan. Iced honey lemon tea is highly recommended - delicious! Felt thirsty after the meal though so not sure if MSG was used. Shall return another time to give it another go.

Love the warm, affable service from Gu Ma herself and her crew at the restaurant. The feeling of "home" does not just come from the food, its equally evident in their service! Love the assam fish head, butter egg yolk crabs, yin yang kalian most! Read the full review on my blog - http://cherieladie.com/2014/03/03/gu-ma-jia-food-pot-food-review/

For those who are celebrating early - Gu Ma Jia is offering 10% discount until 29 January when you dine in at the restaurant. 
 
For those who are still deciding where to have your CNY reunion lunch/dinner on 30 January (Thursday) - Gu Ma Jia has CNY 2014 Set Menu Promotions with four timings to choose from: 12.00 pm – 2.00 pm, 2.15pm – 4.15pm, 6.00 pm – 7.45 pm, and 8.00pm – 9.45 pm. 
 
The restaurant will be closed on 31 January (Friday) and 1 February (Saturday) but operations will resume on 2 February (Sunday) - a great day to makan before starting work on Monday, if you have to work on Monday.
 
Gu Ma Jia is famously known for its signature dish - Assam Fish Head ($28). Many bloggers have praised the delicacy and even celebrities have visited the restaurant to have a taste of this delicious dish. YES! I bet you can finish two bowls of rice with just the gravy. The gravy wins hands down by having the balance of 4S. It was sweet, spicy, savory and sour. 
 
The sweetness of the gravy was very "fishy"... in a good way! I later found out that the natural sweetness of the gravy came from the fish! The fish was cooked in the gravy to perfection with its meat still moist and tender. (FYI: Many places steam the fish head and then pour the gravy over it.) *Apologies for the absence of photograph.
 
Some people travel all the way here just for its Assam Fish Head. But Gu Ma Jia offers many other good delicious dishes.
