simple fare

There are set menus as well as ala-carte option to choose from. Average prices for a main meat dish goes from $16 upwards.

My dining companion wanted steamed fish, so he chose the steamed seabass (@$24++), and I've read about crispy roasted chicken, so we ordered half portion (@$16++) of that and of course, finally a plate of vegetables, in the form of stir fried sambal kai lan, plus two bowls of white rice. Simple dinner.

The food arrived after just a short wait, and three dishes (two meats and one vegetable) do seem like a lot of food for two pax! The crispy chicken was yummy and I liked it. Its skin was thin and crispy, while the meat was still moist and tender, especially the ribs and thigh meat.

The fish dish was a little surprising for me. It came in a elongated metal dish with fire burning at the bottom separate dish to keep warm. The white milky broth made it seemed as though we're eating fish soup instead of steamed fish. There were lots of tofu cubes in this dish as well. The soup was tasty but wouldn't recommend to eat the preserved vege (salted vege) though as it was still quite salty. Some may find this dish a little fishy but it was fine for us.

The stir fried kailan wasn't really spicy, just nicely fragrant with the sambal. Goes well with the rice.

There are discounts for Tunglok card members, so the price listed here is assuming without any discounts.

Average Food. Chinese (Mainland) style service.

I like to go to this place even though most of the wait staff have the mainland chinese attitude in service.

Something that we like to order are here... [My dishes]

Another recommended place if you live near the area.

High Tea buffet

Normal dim sum buffet with quite limited choice. The food is okay but the portion given is too large for 2 person i.e. most plates come with 4 pieces...I ordered the garlic pork slice and that come a small mountian of pork which is diffcult to finish by 2 person. The horfun is almost the same portion as the zichar stall and this defeats the purpose of having wanted to eat buffet...was hopping to try a bit of everything. The soup are nice though.

average dim sum but good service

The appetizer was unusual. They normally just serve nuts. Here it's beans plus ikan billis plus dou kan. It gets your gastric juices flowing because of the mild spiciness, the crunch of everything. However, just like how too many cooks spoil the broth, too many ikan bilis makes it too salty.

We ordered the usual suspects. The standard here is pretty erratic. Take for example, the siew mai and the har gow- don't order them. I know they are staples for dim sum, but wasting money over staples? The siew mai's stock was too salty, and the har gow skin was horrible. it was sticky and thick.

But thank goodness, they had their egg tarts to save them. I've a penchant for egg tarts and so I know the difference between good and bad egg tarts. The portion of porridge is incredibly huge so don't attempt to finish it on your own. The dumplings were cutely wrapped, with a fresh prawn wrapped in between. The char siew sou had a nice crispy crust to it.

Desserts wise, they were a little too sweet for my liking. We ordered a mango sago and a mango pudding.

Nothing fantastic but not too bad either. The service was good. The waiter changed our plates, even though it wasn't like particularly dirty or anything like that. And the waitresses were very nice about helping us dabao the food. The price range is something like $3 for a plate of 3 egg tarts, $4 for desserts and along those lines. Pretty standard I think!

Nice food, butnot worth it

Ordered a Christmas/New Year set dinner for $238++ for 10 people.

We had 13 people then, so we have to add 3 more people to the price.

The set includes chicken soup, Peking duck, Prawns, etc. & free flow of drink.

The food is rather okay, the service was okay too, but the price was just too shocking after the meal as we find out it's $400+.


We used a coupon to -$100 off the amount, but still, it's rather too expensive.

Overall, it's not recommended for their meal.

But individually, if you order the plate of food one-by-one; it'd be much cheaper.
