Most delicious meal in a long time. The chilli fish was so tasty, and the layer cake was the best I have ever eaten. Worth a detour. Cannot wait to return.

This place was highly recommended by a Malaysian living in the area. It was as good as we were led to believe. Rendang beef and hor fan were good. Satay chicken was good but very small portion.

I went there last year and the taste was sooo great! The overall atmosphere was very welcoming and the people working there were so nice and helpful. On top of that, the food was great!

The restaurant is situated in the middle of a row of shops opposite Kevin Court. The food is cooked by two lovely Malaysian ladies originally from Taiping, Perak. The food is... More
