“Just a regular place for hanging out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

There are more nasi kandar that taste better than this. Everything is over priced from food to beverage.

The only good thing is it's operating 24hrs

“Nice vege food court across Kayu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Accidentally found a food court, just walked across Kayu, they serves varieties of vegetarian food & the most yummy to me is the claypot chicken rice & sizzling noodle. Worth the eat! You may also want to try the char hor fan too!

“Yum Yum Yum... Best Nasi Kandar in Penang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Due to our disappointment the day before, we were determined to find a better nasi kandar before we left the island. Been looking for their branch in Georgetown but it was closed. so we google and make some call. apparently, they had move to bukit jambul, near the 2nd bridge. we need to queue to order our meal. get 3 set for 3 of us with an additional 1 plate of rice since dad was so hungry. the gravy was insanely delicious. sweet and tasty. good to my liking. parents also love their nasi and gravy. we had chicken curry, lamb curry and honey cooked chicken.

“Yummy, but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I've frequented their outlet in SS2 PJ before, but this was my first visit to this branch.

To a Malaysia, the food just hits the spot. Forget about the price, the fusion of rice, gravy and side dishes makes this once humble dish a taste of home.

It's not a high end establishment, but who cares about the ambiance if the food is that good!

“Great Nasi Kandar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Was recommended by the staff at Vistana Hotel. The food was terrific. There was actually a queue when we went to purchase the food. Was talking to a Penangite in the queue and he said that this is probably the best nasi kandar in Penang. Definitely recommended!!
