Found this place by Menulog as we were on the hunt for Char Kway Teow. We got the chicken and the seafood. I found it to be of good flavour but was way too hot for my liking. I ordered off Menulog and there was...More

Eyeing this little place for three days now, I finally got to check it out only to be disappointed with cracked teeth from this little pebble in the food. I always try Char Kway Teow (CKT) at my first visit to any Malaysian place, almost...More

Melbourne boasts of a couple of top Malaysian restaurants offering the all time favourite - Nasi Lemak. NL house came recommended. I found the helpings large, but could have been better if there were more of the cucumbers, eggs, ikan bilis and sambal. Good taste...More

Stopped in for a seafood char kway teow for a quick bite and was not let down! Fresh ingredients, great flavours and the right amount of spice! It's hard not to be drawn to this place with the aromas that draw you in!

Glad we found this place, we wanted something cheap and cheerful that wasn't a panini. We had the standard Nasi Lemak and the crispy anchovies set off the coconut rice perfectly.

Tasted the best Chicken And Calamari Nasi Lemak over here with family. Fully recommended to anyone who missed hometown Nasi Lemak when travel to Melbourne.

Disgusting. Cold, all noodles, practically no meat or seafood, the prawn I.did get came with a long intestinal tract I pulled out of my mouth like spaghetti

If you are serious about Nasi Lemak then you need to come here. We came here four years ago and after the change of owners the food hasn't changed much... Luckily. Well at least the Nasi Lemak. Which is good. Maybe they could have added...More

Ok so I'm not Malaysian but I do love their food. I had the chicken curry nasi lemak with kerabu. I had made this at home with a spicier sambal but that took me 2 hours-this was out within 10 minutes. It was fresh, tasty...More

The nasi lemak was very mediocre and wasnt full of flavour. The laksa however was very disappointing as it wasn't authentic and the gravy tasted like something out of the box. Overall, since it is a stall away from home, we can't be too fussy...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
