Restaurant Sai Gao had been doing business in Sungai Petani for years, at least more than 2 decade. In the past, when Sungai Petani is still a small town, and still don’t have shopping mall or air condition restaurant, this is the single most famous restaurant here. Almost all of the business man in Sungai Petani will bring their customer or supplier to have lunch here, mainly because the food here is GOOD, and is also one of the few places that serve “dai chao” during lunch.
Besides, although you can see many empty table, it’s because I reach there early. If you reach around 12pm or later, it will always be full house.
Although the inside is quite old, but they do re-paint it from time to time, to make it looks newer. I had been patronizing this place ever since I was very small, around the age of 3 to 4, and their interior never change besides the paint, same goes to their dish, still as good as the past.
