The food here was cheap and delicious! Like the other reviews have stated, Amy & Ben are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to satisfy everyone. You won't regret coming here for a meal.

“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We first took shelter in here during a tropical downpour and were given a very warm welcome. The owners are hands-on, friendly and generally helpful. The drinks and food are very reasonably priced; there is an interesting menu and the dishes are well cooked and delicious. Highly recommended.

“nice people make a nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

this is a lovely little place with great owners. It has annual repeat customers from around the world which is always a good indication that they do something right. A really nice affordable place to have a beer and relax with a book from Ben's library before enjoying a tasty meal. The do a good western breakfast for this with a need for home cooking, although not before 10 am from memory, so perhaps I should have said brunch.

“Great spot, recommend.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

As everyone else says, great food, service, atmosphere. Friendly etc. Good value.
Love, love, loved the Thai style fish. Was in need of some plain food, but ended up going for this on recommendation (but it fit the bill). It was like the best battered fish I've ever had. Batter was good, fish amazing, moist, tasty, excellent. And the accompanying sauces & veges/salad enhanced the dish. The beef Penang (noyonyan) curry was also very good. Milkshakes pretty good & huge, bout 600ml! Lime & orange juice both excellent.
Recommend.
Oh, they also do Western food, including breakfasts if you need that or are with people who only eat western. And they do pork!
Enjoy.

“Good food at great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Loved the tasty Chinese-Malaysia fusion food; nothing to dislike except for the "music" from the mosque next door.
