First I must complement this restaurant for their thoughtfulness. They are the only one prepare kids cutlery here. Food are nice and fresh. Try the banana muffin and big scones too! Lots parking and corner shop with fresh air. Owner might take off sometimes so do give them a call before you come.

This husband-and-wife's run place is filled with their characters- comfort food and friendly with great hospitality. We tried a few different things from Assam laksa to half boiled eggs to homemade local desserts and they were all made from the heart. And you can spend an afternoon here no problem chatting away with the couple.

Uncle chow is very warm and friendly. Keeps up the chatter. Food is good. The toast with half boiled eggs is lovely. Price is fair and quite similar to other cafes in region

This place serves food that's familiar to Singaporeans - asam laksa, curry mee, prawn mee, bubur cha cha... slightly pricey by Malaysian standards but worth a try! We were here for brunch on a Tuesday and it wasn't crowded. We were glad we took a cab in as the cafe is quite deep in. Auntie Chow was very hospitable and... More

Uncle Chow and his wife are the star of the show - they make everyone feel so welcome . While the menu is limited, it is executed well. The Assam laksa and bubur cha cha were great. This is a great place to chill out - easy to get to, but far enough from the maddening crowd of central tanah... More

This is one place that I never miss on my trips to Cameron Highlands. Food is great and very reasonably priced. Place is operated by a retired couples who are very friendly. They serve mostly local cuisine. Nothing fancy just the plain everyday Malaysian food.
