The service is very good. But apart from that, food wise it is just about average. Their banana leaf grilled fish is very good, hence the only reason why i gave it a 3 star rating. Rest of the food, as another review mentioned, is only slightly better than a Chinese take away. I did have higher expectation, reading the... More

Unpretentious, good value , friendly staff, very good food. Maybe not the place to take your wife as an extravagant birthday surprise - but a great place for a relaxed, mid week meal with friends.

I chose to go to this restaurant after reading all the good comments. I was extremely disappointed, there is nothing authentic about the cuisine, it is merely better than your average chinese take away only more expensive. Would not recommend it at all especially if you are after fine authentic malaysian cuisine.

Very good food (particularly like the street food menu), nice people, reasonably priced and the Mrs was impressed = all the ingredients required for a decent meal out. Will be back again soon.

Good Chinese and Singapore food, especially the street food and they are happy to make up dishes to your own liking. Atmosphere a bit cold lunchtime as not busy which is a shame.

I can end up going round in circles in reading so many reviews. One minute you think you've decided on your next meal out, then one dodgy review and bang back to square one. It pretty much sums up some of the reviews that exist about this place. For once I used some common sense. Was it local to me?... More

Thank you very much for your kind comments and I will definitely see to improving the frontal image this year. I have done a lot to the inside but need to start thinking about making the entrance more inviting. Too much time has been spent on food quality and I really appreciate you pointing this out to me.

I was as usual sceptical of another Chinese takeaway restaurant in Croydon, but what a pleasant surprise! My tip to anyone curious, try things that you wouldn't normally eat, you won't be disappointed. Lovely meal and good portion sizes.

I've been eating here every once in a while since it opened about ten years ago. The food is delicious, especially the Sunday buffet. I love their honey lemon chicken. I have taken friends to eat there, and they were very impressed. The restaurant can provide high chairs for little ones, and the lady proprietor is very happy to have... More
