Went there with friends as we heard Jalan Dhoby have some nice cafes, so we thought of trying it all. We went in on a weekday evening and the restaurant is full, so we ordered two plates of chicken chop with eggs. Both grilled, one with mushroom sauce, another with black pepper. The potatoes are cut whole, so some of... More

Unethical practice. They placed a tiny plate of peanuts on the table and charged RM2.00. We assumed that it would be complementary since it was there before we sat down. They should have informed us or put a price tag there. Besides, the potatoes were all uncooked for all 6 members of our table. Their service was also very rude.... More

11.23.2014 Dinner for 4 adults+1 child. Scarce parking spots nearby forced us to park 2 blocks away in a dinghy alley. The long wait for tables was off-putting. We were delighted to be seated outdoors thinking it would be nice and airy. But got rained on. We moved indoors and waited some more for service. The servers were overworked and... More

The chicken is not good, over fried, too dark and crowd of people. Taste bad and the price for the food is not worthy. The grilled chicken chop with black pepper sauce is bad too.

Fast and friendly service. Delicious food and worth the money. But difficult to find parking and limited seats.

Flooded with afternoon lunch crowd. Office crowd flocking in but lucky we got a seat for 4 and service was prompt and food was decent. Not exceptional but good. Will not queue for this but given an empty seat i will.

Very popular among the locals here in johor bahru and the restaurant is often crowded especially during the weekend. Their chicken chop is battered or grilled. They serve local dishes too like fried rice and fried noodle. Prices are reasonable. It is a no pork no lard (means uncertified halal) restaurant. They also have a branch in Sutera Utama.
