The fact that it is also probably the most expensive charsiu around is only to be expected.

Is something happening to Tengkat Tongshin, why then are so many eateries moving out of that road ... anyway, another of my favourite Max Kitchen has moved as well. Maybe its the Transformers' effect as it now has a highfalutin name Max@iHaus at Jalan Jati off Jalan Imbi (off Jalan Inai as well, lol). Its a great location, its a refurbished bungalow. The bungalow is actually a showroom / showhaus for iHaus , a German interior / kitchen/ furniture products. The setting is marvelous with lots of parking. Food is still excellent though we don't get to see Max cooking now as the kitchen is hidden away. The fun part is to walk around testing the furniture and marveling at the kitchen design and other products.
Its very difficult to find but thankfully Max was smart enough to put up flags/directions once you turn into Jalan Inai / Jalan Jati.
Max, everything was great except you need a much much better wine list, its too second rate and why the concentration on Margaret River wines? I like the Australian emphasis but its slanted, I am not for paying very high prices but there are certainly better choices for wines in the RM120-200 range: try Rymill, Turkey Flat, Kennedy & Wilson, Michael Hall, even De Bortoli, Knappstein.
