Best hainan chicken rice and har mee noodles ever, even higher than Malaysian standards. You will need to go early for lunch say 11.30am or you'll have troubles with seating if with a group.

Seriously - when you are with a Malaysian person and they say that the laksa is better than grandma's what more do you need to know? Great daily specials to and the Hainan chicken rice is great

We loved eating at this restaurant on a Saturday at noon. The place can get packed, but it is totally worth the experience, and once you eat there you'll understand why. For around 20 Australian Dollars, you can feed two people with a delicious Laksa bowl and another traditional dish. We sat down with a family from Malaysia who resided... More

This is a combined family review. I personally adore this place and make it a point to eat here every time I am in Sydney. My partner thinks it could be better. Anyway generally we all had a fantastic time, I particularly liked the chicken rice - wish it was a bigger serving, the curry laksa was close second -... More

Typical place from the East, ordinary seating and service but absolutely dazzling food! The chicken laksa and the beef mekong are superb!

I am always up for something new and having had great Malay food in Singapore I decided to give it a try. The Laksa was really tasty and surprisingly filling for a big guy like me. If you are looking for value and taste, this is hard to beat. I had the prawn and skinless version.

Loved it.... as soon as you walk in youd think youre in one of the kopi-tiams (coffee shops) back in Malaysia or Singapore. With the old "uncle" at the counter rattling off the menu at you. Spartan deco, but its all about the food here. Awsome malaysian food at decent prices. Smack n the heart of sydney. Had the laksa,... More

One of my absolute favorite places in Sydney to get Laksa. The soup broth is delicious and the thing keeps me coming back is the chili paste they have at the counter which adds a great kick and flavour to the soup. The setup inside is simple and they don't do table service, so don't come here expecting anything fancy.... More
