Popular and good Malaysian fare

The first occasion we ordered a Curry Puffs , a wonderful noodle dish and a Seafood Hotpot which was pretty spicy but not over the top so it allowed the seafood to really shine... read more

So one may walk into the place expecting some amazing Malasian Food, only to get highly disappointed. Don't judge Malasian food basis your experience at this place cause it genuinely is good at other places. Apart from the food, the service is also below average. Highly recommend against it. The picture: tried adding as much Sambal as possible to bring... More

Place is very nice and it's definitely abit more upmarket. Service was excellent, waiter/waitresses very friendly. We ordered sets of 6 dishes to be... More

Disappointing evening, with a group of 10. Service was reactive, and not attentive. Food was not good - too much oily food. But table was nice. And decor upmarket. So, didn't meet expectations unfortunately.

We've been to this little restaurant for years and is on our family top list to go back again for any special occasion that may arise. The food is delicious, well prepared and staffs are always attentive and friendly. It is hard to decide which dish is our favourite as they are all great.

We've been to this restaurant several times, as a couple for lunch and dinner, and as a family for lunch. The food is always excellent and the staff are quietly attentive. The space between tables here means that you can have a good conversation over the great meal you've been served and I love that about this restaurant.
