Sek Yuen Restaurant has been around for 50 years or more and has a huge following- and no wonder for this might easily be rated as one of the famous old chinese restaurants. Funny it seems, there are actually two outlets with the new one just right beside the old restaurant. The difference would only be that the new outlet is with air conditiong. But then again, both outlets are always packed.
An almost no decor restaurant with a vintage feel. The only decor would be their fluorescent signboard which was added in the recent year. Tables and chairs actually remain from the 50's.

Steamed Cod Fish- Ginger soy sauce steamed Fresh, juicy and smooth with a natural milky flavour in the palate. Thumbs up!
The bill came out to be RM 109.00. Apologies for no detail price breakdown of the dishes. There is no other reason this restaurant is still crowded after more than 50 years. If you are craving for delicious authentic Chinese cuisine, Sek Yuen would be a good choice. Be early as the restaurant is full as usual and parkings are limited.
