Late Lunch

Ordered the Nasi Lemak which was good. For drinks ordered Hot Capuchino - tasted awful and arrived lukewarm. Left a bad taste in the mouth

I ordered chicken parmigiana and thai ice tea. The menu said chicken parmigiana came with potato cubes. Little did I know that even though the chicken was humongous, they would serve it with only 6 teenie tiny potato cubes. These cubes didn't even make up a quarter of a potato. I'm not joking. The taste was just ok. The thai... More

If you like spicy food with rich of herbs ingredients then i recommend to try this. The portion was just good enough for one person and the two big fresh prawns were just making the... More

Visited the Senayan City branch and had the arab mutton briyani rice. Appearance/presentation wasn't there, but the dish was divine, if a little spicy.
