This used to be our go to Malaysian restaurant five years ago, where we would eat every couple of weeks when we lived in MD. Now returning on holidays, we wanted to visit an old "friend". Unfortunately it seems Lisa is no longer there and quality has deteriorated so much. Char Kway Teow was hard and tasted burnt, Hainanese chicken not fresh, the rice was flavourless and hard and to add to that, the service was terrible. When the order was incorrect and they delivered a Kway Teow Thong instead of Curry Laksa, the cook just threw out the soup and added the laksa soup instead of cooking a new one as the ingredients came back the same as the Thong. We noticed the difference as another person in our group ordered the laksa and it contained the correct ingredients. Waiter never came after that to ask how everything was. Probably knew the cook just shortcut us. Taste of laksa was also bland. We know what Malaysian food should taste like as we are Malaysians. Extremely disappointed and definitely won't be returning. Sad to lose an old favourite.
