It is rare to find a casual and cheap restaurant this good. The food was delicious, don't expect Michelin star quality but do expect value for money. It has been open for more than 35 years, the reviews that cover the walls and tables are all good and whenever I mention this place to locals, they have nothing but great things to say about it. One down side, the restaurant is small, crowded and full of smoke.

To order food, the customers write it down on a pad of paper from the picture menu that is stuck to the top of the table. The tofu steak is a must, also try the steak that comes thinly sliced, in the shape of a flower on a hot plate.
