Terrible business ethics , customer is pushed to Hv the most expensive choice . The waiter ‘drop’ the dish in front of you and walk away. And overcharge you 40 cents more later for no reason

Morning breakfast hotspot, filled with locals and tourist. Great roti canai and very comforting roti bakar with egg, wash it all up with some scorching hot teh tarik and you ready to go!

The roti canai is good actually. It is served with chicken curry on top. The place is crowded and tables are limited but still people are queuing. Worth of visit.

You have to be there early morning because the queue might be long. The "roti canai" tastes super delicious with chicken and the spicy curry.

I had breakfast here one morning on my Penang trip. It was an experience. It was packed and we had to wait to get a table. Upon getting one, you don't actually place orders but the stall people will go around with plates of roti...More

On a busy street, basic setting, and a wait sometimes. Signature dishes are roti canai, and the feature of the roti is an egg integrated into it. Gets busy.
