The Laksa starts at RM 6 per bowl for basic chicken or prawn and goes up to around RM 12 per bowl if you add things like jumbo prawn and razor clam. Very tasty and the aunty that makes... More

Try out the mi kolok, laksa sarawak and especially the porridge with egg. The 3 layer tea or teh c peng is a disappointment though.

We were keen to try the vermicelli noodles with fish balls and paneer. the food arrived without any interaction and was OK but not great. I guess in terms of value for money then this was good value albeit a bit soulless. One of our colleagues sampled the pig's intestines and seemed to enjoy it - more than can be... More
