This restaurant wins on all counts. The food is delicious, the dance show is excellent and the service outstanding. Thanks in particular to Philip and Didi. See you again soon.

This is a great place if you want to eat Malay food at a reasonable price. The ambience is fantastic with outside seating. The dancers are memorable. We took the buffet which was average. IMO check out a-la-carte options.More

The food was fine but overpriced. I think they charge more because of the performances that are on during dinner, which are kind of cool I guess. Overall I wouldn't recommend it because it's just mediocre but you pay a lot of money.More

It is a touristy place as some people noted (with the traditional dancing) and pricy, but I think the food here is good. The service may vary depending on the server, which is not good because they lack in reliability. Location is central and accessible.More
