Although there was a slight mix up with the mango salad I had ordered - it no longer includes glass noodles :( - the staff were very friendly and the food was extremely tasty! The Thai green curry is definitely worth a go and even the mango salad, although glassless, had a rather nice tang to it. Overall very pleased.

We live close enough to walk to the Hakalok but had never eaten there! But we visited on 29th January with friends. We were given a warm welcome and the service was good all evening. The food was extremely tasty and we will go back again in future.

I can't comment on the food as we walked out after waiting an hour for our meal. People that had come in way after us were served before us but the people I felt really sorry for were the couple that were there when we arrived and had still not got their meal as we left. We have been there... More

I have been here a few times. I have always enjoyed the experience. The food does vary a bit sometimes excellent sometimes very good/average, but never disappointing. Service always excellent, atmosphere always excellent. It is very reasonably priced.

I've been to this restaurant twice in the last 3 months. I went there with a few colleagues from office both the times. The menu here is very interesting and nothing like the usual items that you see in every other Chinese restaurant. We went for a set menu both the times and we loved it. The portions are very...

This is by far my favourite restaurant and couldn't recommend this place more! Me and my partner visit this place atleast once a month just to satisfy our craving. Not only is it the best malaysian food I have ever tasted but it is the only place where I have tried everything on the menu because I know I won't... More

Heard about this place from a friend and thought would try it out. Quite away from the town centre, located next to a supermarket..seems a bit like a randoom location! Best part is they are multi cuisine, serving - Thai Malay and Chinese. Starters were quite good, main course was rich in flavor and plenty. recommend: Malaysian Chicken Curry, Coriander... More
