Stumbled across this plain and simple little cafe / restaurant, noticing that locals were eating there ... always a good sign to me, so in I popped, and noticed a wall full of photos of famous people who dined there, including Gordon Ramsay .. so I thought it would be ok. Was delicious. Not a wide range of meals, laksa... More

I grew up with this legendary Katong Laksa because my mo is a huge fan of their laksa. The Katong Laksa is Peranakan dish well known for it's thick & creamy coconut broth. The broth is not that spicy by itself. But being someone who cannot live with chilli, I like 1 spoonful of chili on my noodles. Needless to... More

It was about a year ago that I last ate 328 Katong Laksa and was pretty disappointed with its food quality. Although I was welcomed by its clean, air-conditioned environment, the team of staff has lost their hospitality touch (due to the increase in productivity). After payment, I informed the cashier about adding more bean spouts in the laksa and... More

Have Laksa using only the spoon! Sumptuous serving of thick bee hoon in slight spice savoury soup and cockles. Not Super filling, simply add on otah (barbecued savoury fish cake) or have a pack of Nasi Lemak (Malay dish). The $4.80 coconut juice perfects the aftertaste of Laksa.

If you heard about this place serves the best laska, then you will be very very disappointed. The flavour is very average and needed quite a bit of chili paste to spice it up, there are lack of meat/seafood, just lots of noodles, pricy for what you are getting. Also expect extremely rude shop keeper who would tell you off... More

Many years ago we went here but this time the shop looks different . So not sure if it is the same exact place or same owners. It looks new and clean. Always seems busy which is a good sign. They of course have Laksa and Nasi Lemak . Laksa tastes great but forgot to do photo, was way too... More

The small bowl is already quite huge for most, i went for the big one the first time i went and couldnt really finish. For a quick laksa fix, it wont let you down.

This is suppose to be best Laksa by any of the locals Price was fair and with that chilli flavour it tasted ok But it lacked all the little goodies that a normal laksa have I cannot rate this as anywhere near the best

Definitely the laksa is a must try! And is amazingly delicious! I totally dig the sambal ! No wonder locals are really patronizing it.
