Restoran Sun Ban Lee.

Restoran Sun Ban Lee is a branch of the famous Restoran Ban Lee Bak Kut Teh off Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur.

I am sure you would have noticed that a lot of the old school restaurants are going into cleaner, brighter and well located places to entice the younger diners.

Besides Bak Kut Teh (Pork rib Tea), other all time favorites like steamed Sam Wong Tan (custard 3 types of eggs), Chinese rice wine chicken, tofu, steamed fish head, Marmite chicken wings...etc are available, too!

The young owner was friendly and open to constructive criticism.

Prices are quite reasonable.

The smell of herbs wafted the air as we waited for our food to be serve.

Parking is OK in the night and on weekends.

Small bone is a piece of meat shaped like a chicken thigh served on a piping hot claypot with foo chok (beancurd sheets), fresh lettuce and Enoki mushroom-tender and soft meat with a not too overpowering herbal soup-I'd prefer it with more Sook Tei (radix rehmanniae)-Rm11/.

Dried Bak Kut Teh-served in a claypot-cooked with dried chillies, thinly sliced lady finger (okra), dried squid's tentacles-very fragrant with some spiciness-Rm22/

Claypot with innards like pig's intestine (better if  it were thicker) and chewy stomach and topped with fresh lettuce, foo chuk-Rm11/ 

Steamed Soong Yee Thau (big head grass carp) with blended ginger/salt and garnished with spring onion-just nicely cooked-fresh and smooth meat-watch out for those fork like bones around the neck area-Rm22/
Stir fried Kai Lan with Hum Yee (salted fish)-crunchy and leafy-a good combination-Rm10/ 

Practical and clean containers to store garlic, big red chillies and green bird's eye chillies.

Total bill:Rm87/
Location:103 & 103A, Jalan20/7,
Paramount Garden,
Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Stephanie-it was surprisingly good - not too much of the dark sauce.
reanaclaire-there are others side dishes.
smallkucing-overall it was good.
thule a.k.a leo-between the two-I'd prefer the KL one.
