Could be much better with Penang Assam Laksa

Every dish is so... tempting except No Penang Assam Laksa Bubor cha Cha is abit diluted. Overall it's worth it. We really enjoyed it on Valentine Day.

I hope the management will take note if they wish to have regular customers as if you change we will notice. Positives: a wide variety of Penang origin food. Enjoyed the nasi-lemak with lovely sambal and dried shrimps. Great "char kway teow" with prawns and fish cakes (keep it up). Good selection of prawn, beef, chicken Nyonya/Malay spicy dishes. Cuttlefish,... More

Penang is an island best known as Malaysia’s unofficial food capital. After many trips to Penang, I am hooked on the food and this restaurant is as good as being there. The buffet line was quite expansive – 30 specialties. There’re hits and misses, with the Penang Fried Koay Teow faring very very well, while the desserts and Assam Laksa... More

The food was quite interesting as I am a babas. The char Kuay teow was indeed good! Worth to eat! Pricing was reasonable too.

This is a buffet style dining of a wide variety of Peranakan / Penang food. You will be spoilt for choice and the chef quickly replenishes when a tray is empty. The char kway teow ( fried rice noodles) was very good with freshly cooked prawns, the rendang (beef) was moist and tender. Lots of choices but save some space... More

The lunch buffet costs $23.90. Since I can't eat spicy food, I didn't get to try most of the assam dishes (assam laksa, assam fish etc). There's only a few non-spicy choices. I liked the herbal duck soup, which I thought was excellent. It had just the right amount of salt and pepper. The rendang was tender, tasty and not... More

Two of us for lunch, me a fishy laksa and my colleague a beef rendang, with two cool barley drinks for $26. Speedy service and tasty too, even for my Western palate!

Range of Penang delicacies to choose from the buffet table. Char Kuay Teow and Assam Laksa are must try dishes. DIY Chendol and Ice Kanchang were fun to create with your favourite ingredients. Only drawback would be no drinks (hot/cold) included in the buffet menu (additional purchase if you want). Would be better and worth the $$ if it was... More

A wide range of different Malaysian/Singaporean/Chinese food but at a high price if you have a small appetite. You will need to eat at least 2 platefuls to make it worthwhile. There is car parking and accessible by MRT or bus. This is our favourite restaurant whenever we go back to Singapore for its Nonya foods. It is a place... More

The title says it all. This is the kind of place that in the US would be called GIANT CHINA BUFFET and would cost $12.95. Here, for two diners drinking only water, the dinner bill was an eye-watering S $68.00. This included a FULL Singapore service charge. For a buffet restaurant. What a gyp. For all this money you get... More
