This place was recommended by a friend and it met expectations. Food was good and served quickly, given how busy they were. If you want peace and quiet, go upstairs as the ground floor seating area is next to the open kitchen which has a very noisy extractor fan. Well worth visiting.

Restaurant: Downstairs it looks like an ordinary "coffee shop". Go upstairs to see a totally different and lovely ambience. Good for family dinners & special occassions. An advance booking of table is recommended. Closes at 10 PM. Last order at 9.30PM. Food; This is my favorite place in Brunei or chinese food. Try their 'Guiness pork' or the crispy fried... More

So far all their cooking is very masterful. You can taste the difference in dish cooked between a master cook and an apprentice. However, parking is extremely difficult to find so a lot of time I had given up eating at this place.

Good food at slight higher than other similar non halal chinese restaurants but have to admit that taste wise, the food is good here. Most of the great tasting dishes are the pork dishes; like roasted pork leg, pork belly hotpot, and pork neck slices. A must try restaurant in Brunei.

This restaurant have the best curry fish head in Brunei. Not halal so I will recommend this to my non Muslim friends. Aside from that there are a number of dishes that are good such as the sweet and sour pork, pork knuckle, kailan fry kailan and many more.

If you are a Curry Fish Head enthusiast you will know there is two types of Curry Fish Head. The normal curry, and the Nonya Curry, or better known as Assam. This is a place I will go to whenever I have the crave as there is nothing better than this! I will gather few friends or family member, as... More

Huge selection, great food, maybe not most expensive and high class dining but best mid-range Chinese dining.

This restaurant serves chinese halal food. For me the most special dishes are Fish Head Curry, it feels that fits on the tongue, not too spicy and delicious. Almost all the dishes I've tried, everything was delicious. Don't miss to try this restaurant during your visit in Brunei.
