Would recommend Rumours!

A small spot in Glasgow which serves good Malaysian dishes, and has a wide variety of drinks too. Choose a chilled drink to go with a spicy dish! A nice, modern setting with authentic Malaysian food. I would suggest not going for the lunchtime 3 course special though the price is enticing (unless... read more

When we had dinner there, the staff were being very unfriendly and rude. We thought she was being nice to chinese customers. or probably just because we were students. Food wasn't that good either.

We came here for a meal on Friday night. It was pretty busy but we were served quickly. The food was fantastic! Great meal all cooked fresh. This is a great wee place with great food at a reasonable price. Would recommend this to anyone and we will be back again.

This is a lovely wee place to go for a nice meal where you can just relax, friendly staff, the menu has a good selection, handy if your in the centre of town. The only downside it's pretty small so could be hard to get a table at busy times

I have been coming here for years now and the food reminds me so much of my time in Malaysia and Singapore. Favourite starters are the Roti Canai and Satay Chicken Skewers. Mains Nasi Goring or Pad Thai with Jasmine Tea. Top Tip: lunchtime special is £8.50 for 3 courses. You get what you pay for and I believe this... More

Authentic Malaysian food with British prices. Good food but don't bother getting a drink here. They serve the worse milk tea I've ever tasted.

Pleased to find this eating place next to the Tron church. The selection was wide. The meet rebus on menu wasn't available so I went for the curry laksa. Standard is reasonably good and even had little boiled cockles (I don't supposed the raw ones are available easily here). Others had nasi gorean and lemon chicken and they liked them.

Nice to have a good, simple and honest Asian option at this end of town. Better than any of the all you can eat places by a country mile!
