Restaurant Gao Ren Guan is located opposite the IOI mall, Puchong, at the same row as Restoran Taiping Lang. The place decor is simple and air conditioned, with life size posters of their signature dishes on both sides of the wall plus a row of mirror to make the place look bigger. They offer home cooked style Hakka food done in captivating and refreshing ways like the rarely seen braised bitter gourd with stuffed preserved Chinese mustard with minced pork. My nephew and his wife, invited us, here for dinner. Parking is ample as there is a covered car park, opposite the restaurant.
