    I guess im lucky cos I don't have to queue up since it's 5pm. The rice balls are warm and the chicken is tenderly warm. Nothing like what review have said about this place except the dirty wet floor.

    原本要吃中華,但是中華關了就來這裡吃。雞飯粒結實,點了叉燒,有一點小硬,不過還可以接受。裡面有龍椅可以拍照,二樓也有一些古代的場景可以拍照。

    Fried frozen durian is very goood. Rice ball is okay, otak2 is delicious, and satay is also okay. Not as bad as people review here in foursquare. For me the place is good and recomended.

    Looking for Chung Wah but closed so tried Famosa. Rice balls were like dough. Bean sprout dry and chicken covered by thick fat skin. No more next time.
