We come here often for their great food and ambience. Love having their pancakes with ice cream as a weekend brunch treat. The goulash is hearthy and warming. We always end up getting pastries to go! The prices are decent and the staff are friendly and attentive. Highly recommended

You could get a whole set of soup, main course and drink for less than RM20 for lunch. Their food is really good and the choices for omelettes are crazy. Nvr forget to try their cheesecakes.

You are made to feel very welcomed here and staff go to a lot of trouble to get exactly what you want! Traditional ambience, very clean and tidy! Food freshly cooked and served with ample portions. Mashed potato at last!
