Traditional Food

They offered variety of Malay food with good cooking. The restaurant wasn't that big but nice environment. However, it has limited space from one table to another table. Not convenient if the restaurant is full. Hard to walk around.

As its namesake, anything cooked with sambal assam or spicy tamarind condiment is very good here. Other dishes are not exceptional but you can be assured that they won't disappoint either. The environment is good but its a little bit pricey for local food

Food is good ( taste and variety), service is pleasent, ambient in restaurant is nice(5 stars). But for me it is overpriced(reason to reduce to 3 stars). If money is really not an issue, go ahead.

What can I say, the food here is so good we have eaten there three times in the one week. It's a real gem in Ipoh. Staff are really friendly, the food is outstandingly good and the price is very reasonable. Check it out first, go often

I recently had been there twice, the food is quite good, service is fast, and the ambiance quite comfortable. Had ordered the paku vege with lemak, the gravy could be thicker though, but nevertheless it was worth the price.

Not as good as the first and second times we go there. The concept is unique and the food are spicy enough. But as the days go, the quality of food just dropped. I hope there are some improvement. Just for review from my point. :)

We had the dinner menu for 10 diners, and loved every single dish! The food is not too spicy and the staff are attentive. Our favourite dishes are the assam fish and prawns.

Came back here for lunch after more than 5 years. Good to know the food quality still maintained very well. Staffs were attentive and quick to respond. Had their famous asam fish, udang mantis salted egg, hong kong kailan and fried egg. Rice can be refilled here... :-)
