Portion too big can't finish for two, definitely a group dish !! Easy to locate. Price can be at the slightly high side. Staff was friendly and nice.

Went early in the morning, and they were not fully open yet. Tried the pork rib curry bun and it was absolutely delicious. The curry matched the bread perfectly. Good for 4-6 people for breakfast

Soft bun and good curry. Free protein in our loh han guo. The place is very cold, good for the hot weather outside. The drinks is too sweet, so ask for some ice.

We reached the place super early when they were just opening up. But they allowed us to sit in and order anyway :) We had the curry chicken bun which was very nice ... love the curry and the chicken pieces were cooked just right. Very tender and easy to eat. The seafood hotpot was nice as well ... lots... More

Second time been to the restaurant and it's a satisfying lunch for us. Have ordered the mixed bun this time and it's a good choice as we got the chance to try both curry chicken and dongpo pork at the same time. The price is reasonable and suggest that be there early as they are always fully packed with customers.

As we had arrived late, only the buns were available and kitchen was closed. Bread was good and light. Flavoring of the Dong Bo and curry was good especially when you mix them together. Pleasant surprise was a few coffee shops away where they have fried chu Chang fen and fried chicken.

I tried two types of the bun. I strongly recommend the mixed dongpo pork with the curry pork. The bread is simply yummy and goes really well with the curry. The chicken curry is also very good. Price is reasonable and the other dishes we ordered other than the bun are also tasty. They can even cater to some simple... More

Description
In Malaysia's rich food culture, many love eating buns and rich curry. But while it is common to take buns with chicken curry, not many have tried baking the curry inside the bun. Now with Chicken Curry Bun, food lovers can savour a unique taste sensation like no other! Fall in love with a one-of-a-kind culinary creation - the original Curry Chicken Bun.The-Prestigious-Product-Quality-Award Sometimes also referred to as Port Dickson Curry Chicken Bun or Lukut Curry Chicken Bun or Seremban Curry Chicken Bun, it is a unique dish consisting of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Best of all, it is not too spicy so that diners of all ages and tastes can savour it. Tuck into this must-try delicacy today! HISTORY The story of Lucky King Bun began in the quiet town of Lukut, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan over three decades ago, when the husband-and-wife team of Mr. Chaw and Madam Lew brainstormed over new creating new food dishes. Being avid fans of cooking and baking with over 30 years' experience in the culinary industry, the pair decided to merge their expertise with a dish that required both skills. After much hard work and experimentation, the fruit of their labour was extraordinary - a sumptuous combination of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Termed the Curry Chicken Bun, this wildly popular dish became an instant classic made famous through word of mouth. Today, the dish has become a massive homegrown success story with buns being churned out by the hundreds daily. However, it is still made with the same meticulous passion and quality as day one, with Madam Lew herself keeping a close eye on the entire process from preparation of ingredients to baking and cooking. The result - a mouth-watering delicacy that customers travel from near and far daily to savour! THE PROCESS Enjoying Curry in a Loaf is a simple and convenient affair, but a tedious amount of preparation goes into it as each bun is made fresh daily. Spanning about 6 to 8 hours in total, the process begins with cooking the curries as early as 6am. Over 20 different ingredients and spices are used to extract the rich distinctive flavour that customers love. Next, the curries are carefully transferred into bowls where they are first wrapped in grease proof paper before another additional wrapping of aluminium foil. The outer layer is light spread with butter to ensure that the bun will not stick to the foil after baking. Once this is complete, the freshly made dough is kneaded and cut by hand into evenly sized pieces to form loaves covering the individual aluminium foil packets. After being left to rise for several rounds, the buns are ready to be baked. Upon completion, the final touch is applied with egg yolk glazing to attain the buns' signature shiny golden brown finish.
