We ate here on 19th March this year. Restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. Glad it was as we would never have found this place as well hidden from the road. Staff were absolutely fine, the manager/owner was brilliant and very helpful. We ate Malay dishes and were very satisfied with flavours and dishes. Great value, cheap eats!! Also... More

This place has a wonderful location if you are going for a show at.

Excellent selection of food and reasonably priced given it's of the beat location. However staff training... More

It's a quiet place tucked between buildings right in the heart of the city. They were friendly & recommended the best dishes to us, which were fabulous. The cultural dance were a great treat. A place to go with friends & family for all occasions. Will come back!

Yes, excellent wine choice, in addition to the food & service. Malay nightly dance & show a plus. All employees were attentive, spoke English and were SO helpful, whether with menu choices, refilling drinks, even going out to call us a taxi. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting KL (as I'm sure the locals know how wonderful this new small... More

We went here at 7:30 to catch the cultural dance show at 8:30. The food was good, the service was great and the show was a blast! The setting is very nice, outdoors but covered from the elements. The dancers were very good and after a few cocktails we had a blast participating in the dances!!! Highly recommended!!!

Food is average but the asam pedas was delicious. Location is a bit hidden, nestled somewhere next to megan avenue and hampshire. The ambience is great, quiet and the traditional dances is a good plus point. Great choice to bring my traveller friends to dine and have some cultural experience. And I think this is the only malay restaurant which... More
