As a Chinese, tired of Italian pizza, spaghetti and risotto after 12 days visit of Italy, strongly recommend to tourists looking for above standard Chinese and Malaysian good. No regret choice. Especially recommend Tong Bo meat.

We ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We have been in Italy 5 weeks and it was a very pleasant change from the local cuisine. We had a beef and a chicken dish and both were delicious. The wait staff were very friendly and efficient. Great night!

Me and my husband visited this restaurant last week in a short trip to Milan. The owner was this amazing man who took time to find us dishes we wanted as I'm a super fussy eater. The food was yummy and service excellent would highly recommend.

The chefs are Malay and they can cook Malesian dishes provided the ingredients are available. Also Singaporean dishes are available, try and ask for the Lakhsa, although using Italian ingredients makes it slightly different from the original.

As part Malaysian. I approve. The nasi lemak was authentic, as was the curry that came with it. The sambal was to die for! All around satisfying food

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
