We ordered Sang Har Mein and the waitress helpfully informed us that the prawns cost RM60 each and would that be OK with us? We ordered 1 prawn with our noodles. And, we also ordered the Petai with prawns. The noodles were extremely tasty and cooked just right. The sauce was most delicious and the prawn was really fresh. It... More

The crab dishes here are really tasty. The other non-crab dishes are average. The prices for crabs are very cheap so if you want a really good and hearty meal, I fully recommend this restaurant. Finding a parking is an absolute nightmare so either go early (6pm-ish) or park along the houses behind the restaurant. Place can also get quite... More

Only one bone to pick, and noticed that the sauce and the buns have gone smaller in size compared to previous visits. Will still go back, but hope they... More

I went there 3 times but still feel the food is average. Current promotion on crabs - RM 28/ pc is cheap, taste is ok, just do not have the feeling of excellent.

Wong Poh has been a legend for some time. It's a de facto seafood restaurant that frankly, won't go wrong. Tonight though, it didn't live up to its reputation. It was just average. It leaves you saying,"I've had better".
