Went there last night with a few of my family members for the buffet dinner as we had a 1-for-1 complimentary voucher. We sat outside the restaturant itself which was spacious and better as I think the inside seating is a little cramped.
Starting by trying the soup which was kiam chye ar thng and pig stomach soup, which was okay but a little saltish.
The ngoh hiang (lor bak) was delicious and solid, so was the duck leg mee sua from the noodle stand. The popiah was just so-so to me. The kueh paitee on the other hand was rather good. Then we took some of the dishes, the satay was good, and so was the cockles. The penang char kway teow is a must-try. They had salad too which I found to be rather good, with a variety of condiments. My brother said he liked the Caesar salad I tossed. However, the rojak left much to be desired as the sauce was over sticky and lacked tau pok or fried you char kway.
The nonya kuehs were very unique and delicious. They had about ten varieties I think, and also soya beancurd and ban chan kway with banana. When faced with a strange dish, I asked the server there, "What is this? Is this a Peranakan dish?" The server looked puzzled and couldn't offer any answer. I thought she didn't understand English so I asked her in Mandarin and she replied that she didn't know.
Overall, service was good as the dishes were cleared promptly. We had a good time of chatting and family bonding together.
