Dry Kuey Teow is slightly less appetizing even though the chili is quite good.

Hokkien Prawn Noodles is pretty tasty with Penang flavors. You don’t get these too often in Kuala Lumpur these days. So, it’s good and spicy!

Overall, the food in Restoran Sai Toh Lim is quite good and dirt cheap with RM 2.50 for small bowl and RM 3.00 for big bowl, you won’t find these price in KL.


  • Soup Kuey Teow – RM 2.50

Thanks for the recommendation. Was in Butterworth on the weekend and got to know about Sai Toh Lim through your blog!

Noodles were great but I personally like the dry version better!
