Had lunch here on Tuesday, our first and we were very impressed. Reminded me a bit like a Hawker Centre. Great fresh food, very quick service and the lunch specials are great value. We will be back.

Vistana has a simple business plan: Provide consistently good Malaysian food at a great price. Laminated tables, place you order at the counter plus help-yourself to the drinks. It's no frills dining but it's delicious. My favourites; the Mongolian Lamb and the Vistana Chicken.
