Popped in for an early lunch. Plenty of seats at 1100. Had the seafood wonton combination soup with thin rice noodles. Such a big serve! Lovely clean taste. Squid a bit chewy but still would rate it an excellent value meal.

This is not a restaurant but in a food court. Food was ok, but nothing special as we were led to believe. Good portion for the money, but left most of it as it really wasn’t appetising. Suggest to try other places around who offer...More

I've been smashing Laksa from Happy Chef for 20 years and thought it was time to finally write a review. This place is an institution and shouldn't be missed. Everything here is good, but don't miss the Laksa with Spicy beef and dumplings. Family run...More

This is the best laksa I have ever had. I had the thin egg noodles and wonton with extra tofu and chicken. I wouldn’t choose the chicken again, but the rest was perfect. Worth a dedicated visit to china town just for this dish.

Great service and lots to choose from. Chose the egg noodles to go with my Laksa and to my surprise you could actually taste egg. If I need to nit pick I would say that there are far too many noodles in the dish, but...More
