Keep going back for more. Just had a laksa last week. Back again for Redeng Beef. Eat Tan Hor was good too. This place was recommended to us by local Malaysians. Glad we took the advice Not the cheapest. Not the quantity over quality type neither. If you want authentic Malaysian dishes, this is the place

Most delicious meal in a long time. The chilli fish was so tasty, and the layer cake was the best I have ever eaten. Worth a detour. Cannot wait to return.

This place was highly recommended by a Malaysian living in the area. It was as good as we were led to believe. Rendang beef and hor fan were good. Satay chicken was good but very small portion.

This place serves probably the best prawn noodle in Auckland and put even most of the authentic ones found in Malaysia to shame!!! A mist try if you go there!! Also be on the lookout for their weekend special as the fish head noodle is one of the best I have eaten! According to the owner this dish is only... More
