The Wanton Mee here is simply stunning. It is one of the best wanton mee I have ever eaten. In terms of price it is consider very expensive for a bowl of wanton mee but the quality is top. Their noodle are springy thus is...has a wonderful bite to be eaten. The wanton soup is light yet flavourful. They offer a huge variety of wanton mee and is something different compared to other wanton mee shop. The restaurant is also very clean and comfortable. Moreover, this restaurant is rich in history as it is a 3 generation shop.More

My friends and I were there mid week for an early dinner at about 5.45pm. Most of the tables were already occupied. Service was prompt and the waiter was able to make suitable recommendations for us when each of us like different types of mix...- white or dark sauce in noodles, spicy or not. The noodles came after a while. It was hot and the noodles were tangy enough, or QQ as people call it. The number of pieces char Siew meat given was reasonable and the wanton was sufficiently big enough. Really tasty. The soup that came with the dry-style noodles was fragrant. The whole meal did not leave us thirsty after the meal. That was a good sign that there was not too much msg was in the food. Price for a bowl seemed reasonable. Perhaps the bigger bowl is more reasonably priced at RM$15.50 for a XL bowl (2 to share). If you have not tried it, do go up for a bowl of noodles anytime. Yummy!More

This establishment has been going for 83 years and one taste of the noodles makes it not hard to see why. Amazing texture and taste! A little chilli in the bowl of noodles sure makes it interesting. The sides were really good too, I recommend...the crunchy squid, and also Mao Sang Wong durian with dark chocolate to finish. Eaten a lot of wonton noodles around the world but nowhere comes close to being this goodMore

A very established brand here in Johore Bahru that serves the most authentic wanton noodles. You have a choice in white or black sauce and the menu also offers sides like vegetables and dim sum. Very decent and value for money will he back to...try the other dishes.More

My friends and I visited this restaurant. The noodles were simply delicious! We enjoyed the noodles at reasonable prices and service was great too. Restaurant is located on the top level (6th) of JB City Square Mall. A great food option for us despite the...many food options in the mall. I shall be back with my family the next round.More

It is still as good as it was when it was a coffee shop. Nothing has changed except its environment and the menu. With a better premise of course, it is no longer as cheap as before but for many of us, it is justifiable....The new menu professes to offer the famous Ngee Heng Cui Kueh which used to be sold in a cycled cart in front of the Taman Sri Tebraru market. I tried it. The texture of the rice cake is nice and soft but the radish (or chai por) topping were a disappointment. For health fads they they will be happy for people who have tasted the original version, it ran flat of expectations. The actual chai por garnishing is no doubt oily and has a slight charred taste from the long-broiling oil together with the garlic and chai por. This version doesn't have the black sauce added and the taste only comes from the chai por. Back to wanton, there are new versions of green pandan noodles, and offerings of side dishes for extra order. There are also reasonably prized set meals. With all the new selections, I still go for the original hand-made wanton mee without spice and sauce. The wanton is meaty and satisfying, as against 'mostly-skin' in many other places. The environment is comfy as it is air-conditioned as compared to the old shop and in glitzy City Square on the 6th floor. On a weekend better to come in for brunch as by lunch time, there will be long queues.More
