Famous for their champagne pork ribs, which tasted like KL's 'char-siew'. Lovely. And a simple tofu dish was made heavenly by them too. Try the ee-fu noodles - lots of ingredients. Another must-try is the 'or-nee', yam paste dessert. Like bo-bo-cha-cha ... no lard (I think). Light and sweet.

In short, food is great but be sure to make reservations. Some Japanese customers and also prepared customers who came with gloves to 'whack' the pork ribs :)
