We went there to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. It was 2 weeks before our wedding and both of us ended up really sick after having dinner there. It was the worst case of food poisoning I ever had. I had to be taken to the emergency room twice in a week. We're not going back EVER.

Dropped down to this place for Lunch with my friends and the place was half filled. It was easy for us to get a table. The first thing you get to see is the impressive build. The place is very clean for a malay concept restaurant. Food served here was average. The portions were very small even though the price... More

The place looked impressive from a distance. To our surprise, it serves Kelantanese food only in the morning. For lunch & dinner, there is the usual fried rice varieties, noodles & local-style western food. My son had belacan fried rice (RM8) which he said was good while I had chicken rice (RM6) which was only okay. The price is reasonable... More

It is a malay cafe concept restaurant. Decent place to chill out and chit chat as they have some rattan chairs outside the cafe. Nothing to shoutabout their food. Yet i do go here since it is easy to get a parking and nice to chill outside the restaurant.

It wasn't exactly an authentic kelantanese cuisine restaurant but more of mixed of everything. One could get western, local even some thai meal here. Not quite sure if there any particular speciality meal to suggest. However most of the food are good and with a reasonable price. Others plus things, the service are recommendable and the place also rather quite... More

Not a big fan of kelantanese cuisine, I was happy to find this restaurant. They have an extensive menu of varieties from local to fusion to western. Food taste was acceptable. Service was quick too. Can be quite crowded most of the time.

We've been told from a taxi driver it was a nice restaurant. It definitely was more than just nice. The drinks were amazing! The food was very good too. It was super clean up to the standard of a very good western restaurant and very modern but with amazing traditional Malaysian food. There were every kind of people. Malaysian, Indian... More

It's a nice restaurant in town. There are a lot to choose from on the menu. We had nasi goreng kampong which was great but the fish and chips had an unpleasant taste and smell to it. I would recommend it but perhaps consider avoiding the less popular dishes (eg fish and chips) to avoid dissapointment
