  • The wantan mee and char koay teow here is really good.
  • The char keow teow is not so great but the lor bak, popiah and wantan mee is superb.
  • Forget about ambient. Go for the nice curry mee, wan tan mee, fried kueh teow with duck egg, poppiah and fruit juice. Yummy
  • Why am I rating it so badly when the curry mee there is fantastic? The fruit juice sellers there are terrible. They are extremely rude and yell at you for sitting at their tables without buying a drink from them. There are no signs indicating this rule, but instead of explaining this they yell at you to leave. I watched other tourists get yelled at as well. So to avoid getting yelled at by the impolite juice hawkers, make sure you don't sit at a table with a sticker with a random ad on them. (The ads aren't even for the juice hawkers)
  • Some deals here. Others can be a rip off. Lots of small plates which is fun, but paying 5MYR per-plate can be expensive when it's tiny. Make sure you check out what you're getting first. The drinks especially can be exorbitant prices per-glass.
