Went to the restaurant before 5 to be the first batch of diners. The service is not something to look forward to but the cheese bee hoon and milk crab is excellent. Worth trying but slightly more expensive than other seafood restaurants. However, ordered 2 crabs but one of it was not very fresh.

Like many review said, it's worth the queue. The cheese prawn meehun is delicious. Many other dishes are great too. We tried the fried French bean, claypot tofu and butter oat prawn. Delicious!

I noticed that this restaurant get mixed review in Tripadvisor. I think whoever wish to come to this restaurant must set the expectation right: everyday, there's a long queue in front of this restaurant. Don't come here with an empty stomach. 1 to 2 hours wait is normal here. We arrived in Restoran Tong Sheng around 6:20pm during weekday. We... More

Their service was very rude. We been waited for 2.5 hrs and the owner told us that their restaurant is not fast food. customer should expect to wait without getting know the timing. Their crab is 1kg = rm128. according to the boss, 1 crab is 1kg and cost rm128. I doubt the crab is weight 1kg as the size... More

The food doesn't taste good at all and the staff were really rude to my parents. Please train your staff to have better service and attitude when you serve your customers. My mum wanted to order 8 dishes but all in small portions but the waiter rudely told them that her boss will decide what size to give us. We... More

Frightened by its perpetual long queue that could last an hour wait, we were there before it opened. Highlight of the meal was the cheese crab beehoon, sounds like a weird combination but it tastes great! Tried the scallops and fried squid, think they were just average. Price is leaned slightly to the high side considering its spartan setting. Perhaps... More

We had 6 dishes here which cost us RM261. It fails to disappoints the only problem is that you have to wait for a seat. Based on other tripadvisor users we decided to come at 5pm and the place had already 4-5 families waiting in line. We only got to sit by ahout 6.15 and only got the fold after... More

This is a decent restaurant where if you were to walk in without reservation, you have to wait upto one and half hours or more. The dishes are all pretty good but besides the signature prawn cheese bee hoon, almost all the other signature dishes are deep fried ones. Thus a little heavy overall.

We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and wanted to try it with friends. The queue for tables had already started by 5pm. We had tried placing a reservation but the restaurant was only taking 'walk ins'.The restaurant opened after the 5:30pm opening time and it then took a while for us to get seated. The restaurant...
