This is a MUST TRY food at Raja Uda. The add-on item is DIY by yourself.... But be prepared to wait for 45 minute to an hour the Tom Yam Mee stall beside the chines primary school.

One of the very least options to fix your midnight hunger in the area. Forever crowded by customers but the food was always served in a surprising speed. Affordable price for the pick-more-pay-more dining style. Often saw rats running here and there fearlessly like it was their territory. Hope their food has nothing to do with the fellow mickies and... More

One of the best Tomyam Mee in this food heaven`s town but sometimes it is over crowded. Price is reasonable unless you choose the expensive ingredients such as crabmeat or big prawn. The best ingredient and my favourite is the fried fish....yummy.

It's good but the food quality and taste lacks in consistency, sometimes it's too thin, sometimes too sweet. many condiments you can choose from varieties of fish balls, deep fried fish nuggets, pork, innards, eggs, vegetables, etc. You can also choose to have meehoon, maggi noodles, or porrige to go with either normal clear, chicken/pork soup and Tom Yum soup....

My favourite will be the maggi in tom yam soup. You can actually select the ingredients, ranging from prawns, crabsticks, different types of vegetables, etc. It is quite pricey tho. Please be prepared to wait for a minimum of 30 minutes. Along the whole of Raja Uda, there is a lot of tom yam mee stalls scattered and you can... More
