“Off Night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

On the recommendation of several friends we made the effort this evening. Sadly only average on this occasion, as the dishes we chose were master classes in deep frying and verify an earlier review. So will try other recommendations next time, as anyone can have an off night. Peter was a fine host and sufficiently enhanced the experience to ensure our return. The cash only aspect surprising but not an issue.

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Have visited this place many times, with groups and. as a couple, I love the place , it's cosy and clean, not the poshest by a long shot but a relaxed family run place with no pretences. Peter and Jasmine are very welcoming,
The menu is not huge , but a good selection,if you go for the cheaper starter platter, you will get the starters you get in many places but still good quality, pay that bit more and the difference is huge, pick the £18. Banquet and a £2 beer. You will not be disappointed. Fresh tasting good food whether you pick a banquet or just a single dish from the menu.. Look forward to visiting again soon. Remember it's not a large place about 30 places so best to book

“The most friendly & delicious restaurant in Hazel Grove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We have visited before & keep coming back as the food & atmosphere is spot on.
Enjoyed the Malaysian salad which is delicious & then enjoyed the prawn rendang which is spicy with peas & spicy noodles.
Enjoyed with some lovely chilled white wine & finished off with banana fritters & ice cream..
Couldn't resist even though I was full.
Worth every penny & was very reasonably priced.
Will be back again very soon. Already booked in !!

“Hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

As stated below, a great little place. Fantastic food. Not mainstream oriental like some seem to expect. A fairly limited meat selection as my guess, by the quality all the meat is all fresh.
Wonderful service, quaint little place, like being invited round for tea by your neighbours, if they could cook great food and not bore you with holiday snaps!

Love this place, good food served by great staff at a unbeatable price.

It's such good value that ordinarily I'd swerve it as I'd expect it to be awful. What do they say about judging a book by its cover..

If you're considering giving it a go, simply put do it!!

“A modest little place, but beware of the ants.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

A friendly and lively restaurant. Certainly no frills (no card machine either!) but the food was generally alright and the service was pleasant. Could have benefitted from an explanation of what Malaysian cuisine actually is as most of it seemed very Chinese.

Had the set meal for two which was filling but some of the dishes with sauce sorted of melded into one. Can definitely say we were stuffed!

However, one big problem for me was that there were at least 3 ants wandering around on our table during the evening! We were sat at the front by all the plants and this may be where they came from, but it did put us off considering a return trip.
