Visited this place with a recommendation from my colleague based in Penang. As claimed, many of our outstation colleagues will have their lunch/ dinner here. So we try out before we rush back to KL. Overall, there are plenty of seafood but they have limited choice of cooking...

 Sweet Sour Pork - ordinary sweet sour pork

Kung Po Frog - this is one of my favorite dish

 Salted Egg with Soft Shell Crab - slightly over-fried but it still taste good

I believe you can see a lot of review on this char siew... Personally, I being attracted to try it out and a chance given as I being schedule to work around this area. It is packed with people during lunch hour and if you are lucky enough to grab a seat.

My experience is quite OK but the taste of the char siew if way below my expectation. I shared this experience with some of my colleagues and they said, you need to make a reservation on certain part of the char siew. Else, you will get other part which is not so delicious as claimed. 

The pricing will be varies for different parts. Anyway, the price is above the market.

There are very few Chinese restaurant in Mentakab. This is one of my MIL favorite which she like the food here (i.e. roast duck, steam "pak sook kong", kangkung belacan). This should be my third/ fourth time visiting this place. I would say a bit pricey in a small town for a decent food.

 Roast Pork - not too bad...

Deep Fried Tilapia with Dried Butter Cream - It taste good but the shredded egg too little. However, my MIL don't quite like it.

Omelette - Yang's favorite..

 Kang Kung Belacan - Once of my MIL favorite..
