Chin Hua is a small vegetarian Chinese place which offers a few types of rice and noodles, or a buffet of Chinese dishes, but also has a steamboat option. The staff are very friendly and happy to chat – the boy who was working there on the evening we went was very keen to say a few English words, and wanted to know how to be big and strong like me (well, big, anyway!). Standard furnishings with the expected plastics; but the food was very good and very high value for money.

We had steamboat with two sauces (curry, excellent; tom yam, even better) with came with lots of veggies, leaves, noodles and mock meat/fish. For three people this was RM33 including a premium for having two special sauces instead of one, which is about half the cost of steamboat elsewhere and it tasted a lot better. I also have to mention the 4 types of chilli/sauce available!
