Good Food and Good Place

Total Review: 1

I brought my mother who is early 80 for dinner and she really love it. The food and place recall her some past good memory when my father was around. Very traditional Teochew food and the staffs are friend too.

Too much MSG in food, unpleasent eatting experience

Had dinner at this place last week.
Their customer service was stellar standards however,  food was utterly disppointing.  After eatting the first two dishes which contains much msg( monosodium glutamate) it caused swelling and unpleasent stomach aches.  I really hope someone would check on how much MGS they are actually putting in their food.   I will never patronise this place again.

Fantastic Teochew Food Place with Vintage Charm

Imagine chinese lace curtains with vintage round banquet tables, with Teresa Teng's classic hits playing in the background; It's like stepping into the past, once you get past the hustle and bustle of the main road and into the restaurant. The staff are extremely friendly, many who could recognize the regulars by name!

The food here is really authentic, and you could ask the staff to recommend you some dishes if you are not sure what to have. I tried their signature kuay teow, a wonderful blend of the simplest ingredients (rice noodles & preserved chai por) and it tasted heavenly.

I would also recommend the fish maw broth if you are a seafood fan. We had a great time there, the food was served by very attentive staff that often smiled and asked if you needed a tea refill. The Or-Ni (yam paste dessert) is out of this world too - Smooth, creamy, and faultless. Super yummy! :)

We would definitely revisit it (it's like our 3rd or 4th time there) and would recommend anyone who's looking to get some authentic teochew fare at reasonable prices. Do make a reservation before going down, as we saw that the tables were all fully booked when we were there on a sunday.
