The Coconut Milk Tom Yam is a must try when you visit this cafe. It is sour yet spicy with the aroma of coconut milk mixed together in the soup. Excellent!

After reading great reviews we decided to try this place for lunch. The food has nothing special, flavorless and not that fresh. The only good point is the great location where're you can look at the street activities

Staff were helpful but that's the only good thing about this place. Food and drinks were awful. Having spent previous days in Ipoh and eating food cooked in small food stalls, we were appalled to discover that on actually going to a café/restaurant and not eating on the streets was even worse. We waited ages to be served. When food... More

Stopped by on a weekday afternoon. It's a cool place to rest your feet and have some drinks and food. I had the satay but it was not spectacularly memorable, meat was a little dry. This place is a little pricey though.

It's located smack in jonker street and is probably the only pub and café around that location (unless you want to walk 10-15mins down the road to hard rock) To be honest it's just another cafe/bar but the good thing is the area is smoking free so it's a nice place to chill and let your feet get some rest...

I went there with a friend of mine to have dinner, the food that we ordered was both greasy so we didn't eat it. The waiter didnt even bother to ask whether there was something wrong with it or not. Yet the live music was good.
