Restoran Tian Lai

While in Geylang Patah, we visited Restoran Tien Lai instead of visiting the usual Cze Char Eateries that we always patronize. It's not easy to grab a parking lot during the peak hours. The built-up of Restoran Tien Lai is located in someone's residential home.

We lined up and waited at the entrance before being allocated a table. Just at the entrance, we get to see fish tanks filled with live seafood.

Live Seafood

There were live lobsters, different kinds of fish as well as Shell Food in the tanks.


Restoran Tien Lai is bustling with locals and fellow Singaporeans, in groups or families, filling up the big tables within the premises, making the place "full house". 

Dining Area

What I like about Seafood dining in Malaysia is that we get to pick and select the type of fish 

Golden Snapper - RM 70

Lobster in Tank

While waiting for the food to be served, we ordered the pure Kedondong juice. It was refreshing with sour plum in it.

We opted for the Hong Kong Style to be done on the fish. The fish was perfectly steamed to the tenderness in its meat and the fragrant soy sauce was good to drench onto the fish. Out of all the dishes we had ordered, this was the most satisfying one.

Golden Snapper

Their style of Sambal Lala was something out of our expectations. Even though it was not very spicy in the chilli sauce, they tasted more towards the taste of Indian Curry Spice. 

Sambal Lala - RM 35

We had the Green Dragon Vegetables Stirred Fried with Garlic. The execution of the dish was pretty straight forward and every piece of green was evenly shine in its glistering color.

Vegetables - RM 15

Ordering their plate of Hor Fun can never go wrong if you are looking for standard noodle dishes. The pieces of Charred Flat Noodles were filled with "Wok Hei" flavours, soaked in the gooey sauce with egg whites. The plate of noodles had the standard ingredients including pork, egg and vegetables.

Hor Fun - RM 9 (Small)

Since it's a popular place among us in Johor, I guess we will be back again for other kinds of seafood if we are in the area for dinner.
