I went here with some local people who absolutely knew where to bring a Canadian wanting to try local Malay cuisine. The food is amazing. Lots of variety and some things here I have never seen before but wow they were delicious. Sorry I have no idea the cost as my gracious hosts picked up the bill.

the foods were all okay at the beginning. unfortunately i saw a hair inside on of their food (siput sedut masak lemak cili padi). i told the staff and even gave the hair to her. she only said 'i will inform the kitchen'. thats it. no apology from the staff, and nothing to redeem for what just happened.

We came late for lunch and unable to have a buffet. They offer us a la carte where you can still take any items from buffet counter and stall. Food taste are great. You can have almost everything you wish for malay food. Had a laksa and some desserts. Will definitely come again for next visit.

Discovered this restaurant following a tip from our KL Tour Guide. It is slightly off the beaten track, being just outside the main city centre but the trip (we took a taxi) was well worth the effort. We were greeted by the extremely friendly manager who, on discovering we knew little about Malaysian food, took it on himself to give... More

Had dinner with family & friends over the new year. Food were fantastic and we were spoilt for choice. Really worth paying @ RM53nett per pax. Service was superb & Owner, Chef Ismail personally came to our table to greet us. There was also a 2 piece band performing during our dinner. Although they were not known, was surprised they...

I finally found a place where I can have a good Malay traditional/kampung food at a decent place and at a decent price. Nope, let me scrap that. It's not decent but more like obscenely cheap. I mean RM50 for a buffet dinner? Where else can you get a huge spread of Malay food with that price? From nasi lemak... More

Went at least twice since it opened. Once with a colleague and the other with the family. This is as authentic kampung-style cooking as it gets. The Chef is often there himself entertaining his friends & fans, flamboyantly "holding court" and not averse to having wefies with visitors. If you're not a big eater, opt for rice and scoop the...

My friend and I went here for lunch. That was my first time lunch in this restaurant. I like the interior and also the food. They offer variety of food especially from Negeri Sembilan. They have Telur Itik masak lomak cili api, rebung dan perut masak lomak cili api, asam pedas ikan pari, side meals such as ubi rebus, laksa... More

If you want to try authentic malay food this is the place that you try. It has a very good variety of malay food. I've been going to this place since day 1 and until today the food taste is still the same.

All visitors to Malaysia should try this restaurant for a taste of authentic Malaysian food. Good spread, along with good quality makes for a great meal. Do opt for the buffet dinner.

Thank Ismail T
