Food was delicious and generous in their servings. The staff were friendly and very efficient. The restaurant was busy with diners and they also have a take a way service but we did not have to wait long for our meals. Great value for our money.

Have eaten here a few times and it never fails. Great value, delicious malaysian food. Not too spicy if you are a novice but I'm sure they could spice it up if you wanted it. The rendang curry is divine.

Great food, reasonable service. The language barriers made ordering a bit hit and miss but with such great food it really only added to the experience. A nice quick easy meal on your way into the city

A work colleague recommended this St Kilda institution. The greeting was friendly, the restaurant is intimate. The food was very tasty and plenty of it. We started just with some roti and a peanut dipping sauce. Don't fill up on entrees!!! We had the lamb red curry and crispy duck special which we shared. Both were excellent although the sauce...

This is a place where you get what you pay for really. Starters of vegetable spring rolls were nice, not too greasy and we also had chicken satay which were very good, sauce was full of flavour and chicken cooked perfectly. For mains we both had crispy noodles, mine with seafood and my partner had the beef. Barely any fish... More

Had a fabulous lunch of LoMi and Ipoh Combination. The LoMi was tasty and generous and the Ipoh Combination was just as tasty but the portion was a bit small. Wine or tea coffee was part of the lunch special and at $13.50 it's good value.
