“A hint of home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

If you have a hankering for Malaysia food, this place will do. The koay teow soup was light and delicious, however, the fish ball soup was plain and lack depth. The Malaysian signature dish of curry laksa was not as fragrant and spicy as I like and also little thin on ingredients and body. The barley lime was a bit tepid.

This is a hole in the wall place, service was friendly enough, but the beef rendang was tardy on a slow Sunday late evening. Beware this is a CASH ONLY place. Keep the cost down at $37 for the four dishes?

“We found this restaurant through Local...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2010

We found this restaurant through Local Advisor and we LOVED it! It was our first time eating Malaysian food, and we got great suggestions on what to order. We had a great flat dry noodle dish and a yummy curry pot with tofu, peppers, fish cake and okra. The barley water with lime was delicious.
