What a great find. A little gem in the middle of bustling St. Kilda. Really excellent Malay/Asian food and the friendliest staff we've met in ages. Everyone smiling and so pleased to be of service. Quite reasonably priced and generous serves. Will go again.

Cosy little Malaysian restaurant on Acland Street. We were in St Kilda for lunch and had the fried rice lunch special - $12.50 with a drink - and a rustic fish curry main.

A group of us had an enjoyable evening meal here. The service was great, the staff were very friendly and obliging. We were impressed with all the food we ordered which included several entrees that we shared and also a few main meals which were also shared. Prices seemed reasonable.

Delicious food and pleasant feel in the very casual restaurant. The service was great and the staff were attentive. Not sure on the cost of the meal as it was paid for by my friend but we enjoyed the flavours (not too spicy for first time Malaysian eaters).

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious. The staff are always friendly. The place is always busy which provides great ambience. Do yourself a favour and experience Malaysian food at its finest. You won't be disappointed.

Just called in for a quick lunch plate. We both chose spicy calamari with chilli, garlic, noodle. It was absolutely beautiful, very generous. Melt in the mouth and not at all chewy. Will definitely be back to sample more of their menu.
