Walked in at 9.40pm after a movie last Monday night and they were happy to serve us although closing at 10.30pm. We ordered immediately and were served fast. Great quality authentic Malaysian food and well priced for a city restaurant. Wait staff couldn't have been friendlier.

A great place for that business lunch, or better, just for the fun of it. Always great food, quicker to come out that you can imagine. Make sure to try the shantung chicken, always a favourite.

Have been traveling for three weeks and was in the mood for some quality Chinese food. I wasn't disappointed. Duck rolls, vegetarian spring rolls, hainen rice all were excellent. Pork fish was okay, but average when compared with the rest of our dinner. If you are thinking of splitting the bill by using multiple credit cards, think again as they... More

Can't go past the Nonya chicken curry and snake beans with ikan bilis (dried fried anchovies) or belacan (shrimp paste). Always super busy but the staff are so good it's usually no problem to get seated...but recommend booking for larger groups.

Unfortunately these weren't labelled on the menu, which would have been helpful. We were about to get a table for a group of 8 by pre-booking and everyone commented very positively on the quality, quantity and value of... More
