The laksa is really good and you get a chocie between a smaller size or the larger one. I like to try heaps of small dishes so this was perfect for me so I could jump back on my bike and not feel sickly full....More

We decided to visit this restaurant because of TripAdvisor good rating. We ordered Chicken wings, Assam Laksa and Char Kway Teow. The Char Kway Teow is so good, the wok-hey, balance of the taste of saltiness, spicy, savoury/umami, sweetness. I would even say the taste...More

Walked by and remembered I saw the good reviews, since it was lunchtime I stepped in. Was greeted very friendly by the owners. The Assam Laksa was delicious, I enjoyed every single bite of it! Absolutely recommended!

Stopped for a lunchtime drink and a light meal. Had two beers and char kuey teow. Latter was good but should have included cockles. Simple, good service, cheap.

I got the Assam laksa when we came here and I thought it was delicious, unfortunately that was the only thing available as the chef had to leave early as they were sick. What we had was very good and ridiculously well priced!

A simple but fantastic little family restaurant. The food is made with love and served with a smile. I will probably go for another meal there before the end of my trip.
