Long history of producing Cao Lau. Low prices and delicious. We also shared the spring rolls. Highly recommend.

Ate here 2 nights in a row. Delicious vegetarian versions of local dishes as well as all the classics. Really cheap , especially compared with the restaurants one street over on the water. Highly recommend the vegetarian Chao Lau.
