Cheap, BYO and absolutely delicious. Friendly staff. The mee goreng is one of the best I've ever had. Generous portion size and if yoi can't finish it they will wrap it up so you can take it home. Love this place! !

Stay Kajang!!!! Stepped in to the restaurant with high expectations. .. was very happy with the Menu.. Order prawn mee and Chicken rice.. Worse .... Wondering if the Chef is really from Malaysia. . Not recommended at all for Malaysian food

Unfortunately this bore little or no relationship to Malaysian food. Overcooked, bland, close to inedible. Poor service. I hate doing a negative review, but people pay to go here and get poor or no reward

Went there for lunch with family. Took a chance but wish I hadn't. Had the laksa. Terrible. Way too much turmeric which overpowered everything. The satay was alright. Ordered the Rojak which was supposed to come with egg but didn't until we complained. Lots of better options for cheap and cheerful Malaysian like KK Malaysia or little Penang. Or Istana... More

I had a dinner there with my husband, the place looked good, the guy was friendly, and the music was nice, but I ordered a dish that I didn't like very much.

Cheap and cheerful, offering good food at a bargain price. Not classy - a bit shabby, actually - but only a short distance from the Cuba Mall, and with food freshly cooked.

I had been told the satay and roti at this restaurant are the best in Wellington - and I pretty much agree. The entree is six kebab sticks - either chicken, beef or mixed. The satay sauce is provided in a seperate dish for dipping - absolutely delicious! My companion loved their roti bread too. Our mains weren't to our... More

It was a bit noisy when we first arrived. Food was very tasty and nicely presented. If you like malaysian food would recommend this restaurant. Nothing spectacular to look at but worth visiting.

Lovely to be back here after a long absence and have their fabulous extra hot and spicy mee goreng. It's been a while so great to taste the best in town again!
