A true “hidden” gem in Little India. The food is beyond delicious (we tried the Lhaksa, Nyonya chicken, bruschetta and brownie). Staff members are extremely kind, the service is fast and the restaurant is very clean and beautifully decorated. You will not regret going here!

This restaurant is located in Little India and it's a very cute spot. The service was ok and we didn't have to wait long for our food, but nothing was to tasty. We tried some dips, chicken noodles and salmon rosti. The wifi wasn't working.

We had lunch here on arriving to George Town and it was absolutely delicious - the laksa was particularly good! Really friendly service and a great drinks selection including a gin and tonic menu.

Stopped off for a drink and a light snack. Good menu, tasty chicken satay. Calamansi freeze a delight. Doesn’t look much from outside but great for a drink or a light meal. Free water and WiFi.
