We were in this town on a mini-sight-seeing day trip, and decided to try the place out, since it was close to where we were, and Malaysian cuisine ranks among our favorites.
This Restaurant was nestled in a quaint strip Mall called the Independence Mall...that looked like a former Municipal complex complete with a replica of the Independence Hall in Philadelphia that is now the Meridian Bank. One of the doors to this Restaurant has a plaque outside mentioning that this was the old City Hall. How cool!
We started out with Roti Canai – our absolute addictive favorite. The curry had a very nice depth of flavor and the Roti was crispy and chewy at the same time. For the Main Course we ordered their Green Curry with Chicken, Vegetables and a side of Rice, and Basil Chicken. While enjoying our meal, the four of us were convinced that the Chef was an experienced one. The tastes and the flavors of all the dishes were distinct and impressive. The spices and the ingredients were all fresh, with the spicy and the sweet tastes of ginger, basil and coconut creating a harmonious and flavorful party on our taste buds. Since everything is freshly cooked after you order, you can request your own heat and spice levels. The accompanying Lychee Drink for three of us and the Iced Tea for the fourth were perfect accompaniments.
This place did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. Our server, Polly, was very sweet, diligent, polite and friendly. The prices for all the dishes were extremely reasonable. The décor was sparse but nice. They have proudly displayed all their awards for the past five years or so at the entrance on a wall, and some framed ones on the Bar counter.
We loved our lunch, and have no hesitation in recommending it to people who like Malaysian food.More
