My Malaysian friend treated us to a sumptuous lunch @ this restaurant. We had salted egg crab, fried meesua, stir fried sweet potato leaves, parsley beancurd, stewed pig’s trotters with baked brown buns (mantou), mashed yam with glutinous rice and ginkgo nuts dessert (orhnee) and...Chinese tea. The portions were large. And we had to take away the balance even though there were 5 of us. The restaurant was really packed when we arrived at about 1:50pm.More

Was there recently to attend a relation wedding (Lunch). The restaurant is pretty well known in JB for their good and delicious Chinese food. Have patronised many of their other outlets in JB. Have never been disappointed so far.Service was decent and fast. Communication can...be a problem as the staff speaks mainly in Cantonese/Mandarin. Be prepared to use hand gestures if the need arises.More

My first & second (yes, especially the second) experience at Restoran Peking @ Taman Sentosa was dreadful and honestly, disastrous. We had our first meal on 27/10/19 at approximately 9:45pm. When we arrived, most items we came for (crabs, suckling pig, crispy duck) were sold...out. Decided to settle over here for dinner anyway. 1. We ordered mixed mushroom beancurd tofu but what came was just plain beancurd tofu. (The staff did not take the orders down on a paper) We told the staff and they went back into the kitchen and added some mushrooms on it. Well, it taste terrible. WORST dish by far. 2. Was finishing up our dinner so we asked the staff, "Is our fish maw soup done cooking yet?" She went to check and came back with a disappointing reply, "The order was not being keyed in." 3. Our supposedly hot tea came at room temperature. We understand that you guys were closing but yup, zero effort. 4. Staff are super inattentive. It's quite apparent at this point but hold up! It gets worse. Will get to this later. I guess it's understandable to have occasional cock-ups during service sometimes. Also, since we did not manage to eat what we wanted, we decided to make another reservation for lunch the next day (WORST DECISION EVER). You will be surprised how difficult it is to catch the staff attention when they have at least 6 staff on the floor. 5. Staff walked away in midst of taking our order. (??????????) "We want suckling pig. Crispy duck....." (She walked away at this point without saying anything. No acknowledgement, no nothing). I told my friends maybe she went to the kitchen to check for the food availability. We waited patiently and when she came out from the kitchen, she simply walked to another table. Excuse me????? We were not even done ordering the food. We decided to order our food from another staff since she's so busy. While we were doing that, she came back and said like, "I thought you guys ordered already?" LOLLLLLLL WHAT? YOU TOOK OUR ORDER? Absolutely redonkulous. 6. While we were eating, staff were clearing and setting up other tables. This particular staff threw the wet tissue across the table to set for convenience sake. Super unprofessional behaviour noting that there are customers around and considering this is a premium Chinese restaurant. 7. We were finishing up our lunch when we asked one of the staff about our fish maw soup (we ordered it again as we did not manage to consume this the night before). "The order is not being keyed in." WOW SERIOUSLY AGAIN? WHAT ARE THE CHANCES? Please have the decency to remove it from the menu if you guys do not have it. Or try jotting it down on a paper next time? Cos it’s clear as day that waitresses here do not have great memory. 8. Once we finished our lunch, all of us took turns to the toilet. We were diagnosed with food poisoning and personally, I was in and out of the toilet for at least 8 times that day. Unfortunately for my friend, he had it worse than me and had the runs throughout the night. (TMI -- I'm still having the runs today 1/11/2019) HONESTLY AN ADVANCED HALLOWEEN EXPERIENCE FOR US. HORRENDOUS SERVICE AND RUN-OF-THE-MILL FOOD. For the price point, you can get way better food and service elsewhere. Thinking about it, mamak stalls have wayyyyyyy better service. WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE.More

Second time at this restaurant. We ordered noodles(sheng mian), steamed soon hock fish, roasted duck , butter sotong and Vege (nai bai). Sheng mian was not as expected but noodles were surprisingly flavourful and chewy. Soon hock was well steamed, roasted duck was good too...(skin was crispy). Prices were reasonable. Services were ok, within expected standards. However , the table setting was minimal. We were only given a small plate and chopsticks. Had to request for extra plates and bowls for our Vege soup. Not much of a problem for us but definitely a setback to their service. Could have given an extra bowl with each plate and chopsticks to improve the customer's dining experience.More

My fiancee and I have visited here several times with family and just us. The array of well cooked and fresh foods is fantastic. The roasted pig and roasted duck is delicious. We have order many of the dishes to share and have no been...disappointed with any. The service is attentive and fast, with every request attended to. It is popular and 6.00pm is a great time to get in the door before the main crowd starts to descend.More

The restaurant was quite crowded when we visited. Although there were many waiters/waitresses around, service was not prompt. The feeling you get is they are not interested in you unless you order their more pricey items on the menu. Food was average, or may be...even slightly above average if the service is better.More

Many branches of this famous Chinese restaurant in Johor Bahru. This day, we visited this branch at Taman sentosa. As expected, the food was amazing. One of the dish that I always recommend is the roast suckling pig. Amazing texture of the skin and very...flavorful. We ordered fresh fish from the tank. As always with fresh fish, we steamed it HK styled. As fresh as it can get, the meat was very bouncy and solid. Ordered the lala in soup stock as well and it was fresh. We had 4 adults and 3 kids, total bill came up to $367.More

When to Pekin for Lunch on a Sunday afternoon. At 2pm , the place was not pack, so we do have lots of seat available. We ordered food and it was served quickly. In general the food quality was good. The cost is not expensive..... 6 pax about 120 SGD. I would skip the roast meal and pekin duck, it just ok .. we had better else where. However, the Char Siew was good. well roasted and very tasty. The soup is also very good. My advice is to order the medium size pot, it must more value for money then the small pot. The Roast Duck is really good, it meal is moist but the skin is crispy, making this a most eat item. The Garlic Oyster, mm.. so so, the Garlic is flavorful, but I dont taste much of the oysters. So , i have to say that i would give this a miss. Braised Pig Trotters is superb, specially with rice. The size is big, its can easily shared with 5 pax. As a whole, value for money and some good food. I would return again for more food.More

This restaurant has 2 levels and usually very crowded, as it is popular with the locals as well as Singaporeans. They have some signature dishes on the menu that are really good. I loved the fried Mee Sua, salted egg mixed vegetables and herbal chicken....Food was sumptuous, price reasonable. Service can be slow due to the crowd. Overall, a great dining experience.More

Hi, If my memory serves me correct they do. I normally order their Bamboo clams and steamed Soon Hock fish.
