Best Laksa you can find on the coast.

We have been coming here quite often since we moved to Robina. Service was hit and miss but if you don't mind the food is great. I haven't tried everything but the best two dishes me and my husband always go for are Laksa noodle and Sambal Prawn. The portion is very generous which I've never... read more

Slack service, lazy unenthusiastic staff. Meals forgotten and delayed and no water bought to table after requesting it twice. Portion sizes were small and the food was really average. Dissapointing. Restaurant atmosphere was pretty much zero.

Delicious food served very quickly by lovely attentive staff. The Baba honey chicken is to die for! We eat here at least once a week and the food and service is constantly great. Well worth a try if you love Malasian.

Amongst the choices of eating establishments along the promenade the River Penang is well received. I tried the Combination Laksa which offered a nice size bowl with good amounts of seafood, chicken & eggplant with a well balanced soup base. It was busy during lunch, though the service was fast & order was served quick.

Always great food at very reasonable prices. I have tried almost everything on the extensive menu now and there is not one dish I would like to have again. A great place to pop into when your in the area or shopped out at the mall.

We went here on a whim, and we were not disappointed. There are a lot of options on the menu, and both my wife and I were pleased with what we were served. Very nice experience.

I'm always pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food here. I have tried many of the menu items and always find the meals tasty, generously portioned and well priced. I gem amongst the shopping centre rubbish.
