The noodles were quite spicy but weirdly not flavourful and really far too big portion for lunch. We actually preferred our little fried dumplings. Don't have the lime barley water - too many bits and an unpleasant sliminess.

We went here one evening. When we arrived there was quite a long queue but this didn’t take long to reduce down. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Would definitely go back.

Food is very good for the price. Authentic Peranakan food at relatively reasonable pricing. Good place for lunch or dinner.

Visited this place after their re-opening with a new interior. Nothing much changed and the queue is still long during peak hours. Wide spread of food varieties for local foods with an affordable price range. My favorite is always Char Kuey Teow.

One of the sit down cafes in KLCC. First night in KL and jet lagged and wanted a relaxed sit down meal. Nothing special. Barely any seafood in the dish I ordered. Prefer the actual KLCC food court and the ITSEAN Japanese supermarket for price,...More

Got the Char Kway Teow, nice smokey taste but nothing so special. The restaurant ambience is a bit sad.

I'm usually quite sceptical about eating street food in a restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised by the street food offered here like char kuey teow, pai tee, lobak and cendol. I enjoyed the meal and would definitely visit again!

The chendol we eaten there is really bad. Plenty of ice shavings and some red beans + green gelatin jelly. Is that all ?It tasted so mild. Why? The quality of the food there obviously has gone south. :(

Great option for authentic Malaysian food. Food were decent. I would recommend trying their Cendol Ice Cream. That was good. Price are worth it.

They’re on level 4. No alcohol. You can try to make a booking but they will mess it up as they did mine recently. It’s a casual restaurant, like a diner in USA. Just walk in. Go early like 6pm so you will not be fighting... More
