Very authentic and impressive selection including hainanese chicken rice and bubble teas! I was surprised to find no deserts though, a little strange. The service was friendly and punctual considering that only two people were doing it!! I would return here again to try some of the other dishes.

I'm really disappointed that this place is not what it once was. The staff are now harassed and over worked. There's little time for them to pay attention to the customers and everything is very rushed. The food is also not quite what it once was. It's a lot sloppier.

I was happy at first to see a Malay restaurant, my mouth started to water with the idea. Much to my horror the food was badly cooked and not all resembled the food that I remember from my years spend in Malaysia, the chef should give up and retire he single handily give the beautiful food of Malaysia a bad...

Had a take-away due to sudden changes and this restaurant was chosen for it's Asian dishes. Staff, despite being friendly, may need to be spoken to in simple English (odd). Ordered the mixed fried rice and asked if the adding of prawns could be omitted and was answered with a yes. Cards are only accepted with a minimum purchase of... More

I've been to this restaurant many times and it has always been great until last weekend. The staff are always very helpful and friendly but the food this time was not great. We decided not to have the set lunch which would have been a good deal because we wanted to order the beef rendang and spicy chicken dishes. The... More

I ordered a vegetarian dish and was served the dish but with mince meat. As a vegetarian, I couldn't eat it but I thought 'mistakes happen' so i reported the error to the staff who indeed are very friendly. They took away the wrong dish and asked me to wait. When they brought out the'right' one i began eating it... More

Went with friends in Edinburgh. Really welcoming staff, I also went with a Malaysian who said himself that it was great food! Loved it! I have been back many times since-my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh!

Extremely busy even for an early evening dinner, albeit in the midst of the festival but understandably so. Excellent service, delightful food (although you may need to be an aficionado of Malaysian food to fully appreciate the range of dishes on offer) and a pleasant "bistro" ambience.

Having sampled the delightful main restaurant in Fountainbridge, we booked a table for 7 PM on a Friday night during festival time. The food is the thing, and we were very happy with what we had. The roti sauce was aromatic and not too spicy for the kids. The deep fried tofu salad was as good as anything we have... More

Fantastic food - truly delicious. Generous portions and good value too. Very basic, even ramshackle surroundings but just dress-down and enjoy the experience for what it is. Efficient and friendly service.
