    I prefer it to be fried than grilled! The fried chicken chop bater is really good. Love the black pepper sauce yums. Love how they made their homemade wedges- from real potato and seasoned well. 😋

    Chicken chop best in town? Tasted the deep fried chicken chop w black pepper sauce. Good and crispy. Reminds me of some Maggie seasoning too, guessed they used some in it.

    Coming the number one choice should be their signature Chicken Chop, bu if you like to taste their menu start with the chinese dishes. All of their menu is delicious and at a moderate price.

    Heritage shop in old downtown JB. Locals argue about whether this is the best chicken chop in town. Chops are thick, juicy and the batter thick and crispy. Very popular and often full house. Read more

    Iced Lemon Barley : Refreshing. Nice tang and sweet aftertaste from the barley. Pls note it is a sour-ish drink, sweetness just the aftertaste. Wife think no sugar at all, just lemon and barley. 7/10

    Crispy chicken chop with mushrooms sauce taste good but a lil bit pricey for me, rm15 per plate (end 2014).. But still worth a try ;)

    The chicken chop is a must try. A plate would be enough. You can ask for extra peanuts. The fried rice is 9/10 for excelling in taste. Dont hesitate to come

    Limited seats. Open between 12-930pm. The best crisp batter used for a fried chicken chop, i'm an addict. Mutton chop is just luscious though pricey. The nasi goreng is near perfect.

    Definitely go for the crispy chicken chop. The black pepper sauce was really mushroom sauce with black pepper added. So disappointing. For drinks, go for the Lychee Barley. Not too sweet & refreshing!

    Tried the grill mushroom chicken chop : Nothing special.The sauce was using worcestershire. Alot of it. Almost the whole taste of the sauce. Thats some say its made out of box/instant sauce. 4.6/10
