Based in the Murray Street, this tiny little restaurant is a MUST during your Perth visit. The menu contains all the wonderful Malaysian dishes you would only find in Malaysia or Thailand or that entire SEA area. Outstanding fresh food for a small amout !...Don't miss it !More

This cafe was recommended by friends. We searched for it where it is easily located along Murray Street. No doubt the food is not only Malaysian but also delicious. The food is is pre-prepared, therefore service is fast. There are a variety of choice of...chicken, meat, fish, mutton and vegetable.The owner is also very nice and service is excellent. Price is reasonable Multi story parking is easily available across the street.More

Not feeling the same after eating there recently. Guts crook. Chicken was cold and male workers there looked unkempt with no hats and casual clothes. One worker sat outside and smoked right next to me. Doubt if any has done hygiene or safe food courses....Pretty annoyed that my stomach is suffering. Needs a visit from the government health department. Embarrassing efforts.More

Our family enjoyed the meal we had in the cafe. The nasi pattaya, nasi ayam goreng were delicious. Can compare to the taste found in Malaysia/Singapore. The only negative point i have to say is that the tea tarik is too milk. Otherwise, it is...a nice place to find food away from home. A plate costs about AUD12.00 but as as the quantum is quite sizeable, it is enough to share with 2 persons; especially for small eaterMore

Seating area has been enlarged and it is now more specious. I visit this cafe...when I have a craving for Malay style food. This place is also popular with Malay students studying in Perth.More
