Excellent Authentic Malay

Went on a Monday evening with work colleagues after one of us had been a couple of times recently. I don't have much experience with Malaysian food, but my colleague has previously lived there, and he said that this is as authentic as it gets outside of the country.

I know that I'm going against the general consensus amongst recent reviewers but my recent visit with two friends didn't leave me wanting to return any time soon. For over £60, I thought the food tasted average, the service was basic and it isn't cheap. Look at my picture of the sharing platter which costs £17 (£8.50 per person) -... More

Service was just right, timeous without being rushed. Staff were friendly and the... More

I had visited this cafe when I lived in Glasgow 4 years ago. I was pleased to see it was still going when I returned this month. Had a lunch friends and the food was as good as I had remembered it being. And the prices are very reasonable. Can see this becoming a regular place for us!

Had lunch in here a few times before going to Cineworld with the Mrs over the last 2 years and it's always had a warm atmosphere, friendly/attentive staff and good, clean food. By that, I mean fresh....not over-seasoned, tasty scran! Decent prices too. Had a nice bottle of Tsing Tao beer with my meal, which complimented my seafood dish well.... More

Been going there since it opened and still think it is one of the best places in town for Malaysian food. Tastes as close to authentic Malaysian food as you're going to get. Feel like I'm in KL when I have Char Kwoey Teow. Staff are super friendly.

Loved all of their dishes - a little pricey but definitely worth it. Great for vegetarians too. The staff are very accommodating and will help choose through the very extensive menu.
