    Pickled Green Chili still has heat, red chili sauce still has plum flavour. Traditional flavor/dish well preserved :)

    Friendly service by the aunties. Try the congee, wanton soup and sticky rice pao during yum cha. Lunch is also tasty with a good variety of options.

    I'm super suspicious of d meats they are using in their dimsum.I don't even think its pork or chicken. Doesnt have the texture. I only stick to the fried rice , tausar pau , chinese tea and oh chien

    Bad experiences for twice. Always be deceived by those aunties. Not really into their egg tarts and "char ho fun". Always big portion with expensive price for only two person 😒

    Dim sum is good but there are misses and hits. Weekend special was a disappointment but the glutinous rice and chicken was good.
