Aptly located in the Peranakan neighbourhood of Joo Chiat, this homely restaurant has been serving Peranakan food since 1953. It's a good place for family and friends to gather for favourites like babi pong teh, Nonya chap chye and ayam buah keluak.

recommends this place.
GHS has been in business for decades and has built a consistent Nonya menu which excels those in Malaysia. Fresh ingredients, great chefs and service has been the mainstay. Essentially, PQD or good price, good quality and consistent delivery.
We dropped by for lunch on May Day and was pleasantly greeted the moment we pushed the glass door opened. As the restaurant was full, the staff quickly sorted out a table and apologized for the inconvenience.
The menus were promptly delivered along with our drinks. The order was a fresh Pomfret Assam style, Chicken Buah Keluak and Chap Chai. Food arrived in less than 5 minutes. Granted they were probably pre cooked but the perfectly done pomfret was delivered in 11 minutes flat.
Kudos to the management and chef. I would rate the dishes 8/10.
As a finicky foodie, it's hard to gain acceptable indices like this. I am sure many of you to have been would, perhaps, give a similar rating.

does not recommend this place.
During the peak of Little Nyonya, I went to 3 different peranakan restuarants to try out the food.
Do not expect much of ambience dining at Guan Hoe Soon. It looks like a normal traditional chinese restaurant found at Geylang with minimal decoration but the peranakan cuisine served here is among the best that I have tasted.
Come here if you are more into the peranakan cuisine rather than ambience. The food is delicious at a very reasonable price and portion.
Please pardon my blog write up as this was done a few years ago when I just started out blogging. Did not want to change anything in the post as it does brought about chuckles when I look back at my amateurish writing.
