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

This place is amazing. We were taken here by family who live in Singapore and who frequently take visitors here due to the quality and variety of food on offer. The buffet has around 20 items and the quality of food is high. The price is of course higher than hawker stalls but considering the sheer variety and quality of... More

Can get noisy when crowded but family dinners are like that anyway. Good spread of Malaysian food. Love the satay and fried kuay teow.

This place offers a bit of everything (salads, main dishes, dim sum, snacks, soup, finger food,desserts). I won't say the spread is elaborate but there's a bit of everything (anyway, how much can one eats?). The food taste quite nice as well and the ambience is causal, service was also quite up to mark. The price is pretty affordable. So... More
