Delicious lunch

As always, the service is friendly, the food is very good, and the prices are reasonable. We went in for lunch and had the ever popular Laksa, a soupy curried noodle dish, and a lively conversation with Abba, the owner.

Very small restaurant. Clean but not fancy. Owner greats when you enter. After you have been there he even remembers what you like. Prices are reasonable. If you are with a group that wants 'Chinese' food but don't particularly like it, order the lemon chicken. Nobody else comes close to this restaurant -light sauce.good portions. Everybody else seems to use... More

I've seen this restaurant from Richmond Road for a long time and finally got to try it. Reviews by other guests were excellent. With high hopes, we went - and ordered the Singapore noodles and the chicken with fried orange peel, which others had recommended. DISAPPOINTMENT - big time! Very little flavor. The noodles were just that ... noodles with... More

This resturant is a real hidden gem, they make the best tasting curry dish called Laska, it has chicken, egg and a spicy broth of curry. It tastes even better than the ones they serve in Malaysia, the owners are the chefs and they keep the ingredients a family secret. Everything is made from scratch with the best quality spices...

Once again, had a delicious dinner here. Not much atmosphere, but lovely, friendly service and really good food. This is a quiet place, so a good place to chat over a meal. In fact, too quiet - I'm worried that they don't get enough business to sustain them. We were there for over 3 hours on a recent Friday night,... More

Service is good, but food is the worst I have ever had. Chicken curry, not so much chicken in it. Black bean beef, beef is over done. Dishes are expensive, atmosphere not impressed. 中国人不用去试了,菜完全没法吃。

We wanted to try Singapore style food and found it here. We tried the Chicken Curry Asam and Laksa. Both were tasty with interesting flavours. Friendly service, simple décor.

Arrived on a very hot Sunday evening. Snowblower in hallway and no noticeable air con. Two small fans on desk didn't help.much. Decor school cafeteria. Only one other table occupied so it was pleasantly quiet. Radio on for ambiance. Last time I was here I had lemon chicken which was average. This time my spouse insisted I try his favorite... More

This restaurant has been open since 1982 which says something about the quality. I stopped in for a takeout lunch and the staff were friendly. I ordered the Satay Tofu dish as I have been trying out vegetarianism and I found it pretty good. I might have got them to spice it up a little too much . Most dishes... More
