“Nice and Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Read from various sources online that this is a must try in Kuantan.

As I was staying just next door, Hyatt Regency, so it gives me no excuse not to try it.

The food would be rated 3 stars, it is very home cooked style with no frills. Do not expect some fancy restaurant exotic style curry, just plain simple curry noodles like how your mum would do it at home.

The extra star is given for the friendly cordial service from the people there. English speaking locals that are accommodating and helpful.

Please do go there early in the day (breakfast or lunch) as was met with disapointment on the first day when I paid them a visit at 2-3pm on the first day of my stay.

“Nice & easy”

Simple food. Environment can be a bit dangerous as there are wild monkeys nearby. Be careful especially is you take away your food
