The Balestier Road restaurant was opened in 1983 and is the first in what is now a chain of eight restaurants across the country. Popular well into the early morning this is a popular restaurant with locals with the food being of an excellent quality and at very reasonable prices. The restaurant can get very busy but the service is timely and engaging. There are also other restaurants in the same chain at (i) 470-472, MacPherson Road, 368188, (ii) Block 34, Whampoa West #01-93, 330034, (iii) 425, River Valley, 248324, (iv) 199, East Coast Road, 428902 and (v) 18, Cheong Chin Nam Road, 599742.

The double boiled water melon soup is recommended, as is the chicken, salted fish and Chinese sausage claypot rice dish.
