Lovely family restaurant. Fairly cheap around $20/head. Jasmine tea on the house. Our favourite dishes are: the roti beef, fish head fried rice, fried beef hor fun. The only negative i can give, and it is a biggy for my family, and that is that they allow smoking at the outdoor dining area. As far as i know, it is... More

Been buying mostly takaway for several years and occasional dine in. Always good food. My no 1 lunch spot in Doncaster.

I have been visiting this restaurant for years. I love their Assam Laksa and Curry Laksa along with other dishes. 10-12 dollars will buy you a decent size meal and authentic flavour...oh and Bah Ku Teh....

The best dish here is the personalised yong towfu with either a chicken stock or a curry laksa stock. You just need to get you head around the different sorts of tofu/dumplings that you choose. This is so much better than a standard curry laksa or yong tofu. If you have never done this before, just try it and you... More

We've been going here for years. The food is cheap and delicious. A recent renovation means that the shop looks even better now and has more tables. Eat in or takeaway you won't be sorry. Great value for money and a favourite of ours.

Very tastefully refurbished. No booking so we all turned up at 12 noon sharp. This buzzing restaurant filled up fast . Service was prompt and the food good , but not the best for the Malaysian hawker fare we all ordered . Paparich in glenwaverly have better versions although at a higher price . Ample parking in front .

When this placed opened it had a big impact on the adjacent Asian restaurants as it served very good hawker style food at reasonable prices from a small shop. It has a wide variety of authentic dishes from Malaysia and the service is speedy and efficient. They recently upgraded and expanded the restaurant and while it may be a fancier... More

A very clean & newly renovated restaurant in suburban Doncaster - we came here for an early dinner last night on the recommendation of family & friends as were at nearby Doncaster Shoppingtown for the afternoon. The staff were very pleasant & friendly. It was good to go early as apparently it can get very busy at nighttimes. The menu... More

I have been here a few times and I decided to take the plunge and bring a few friends- from the entrees to the main meal the food was consistently good - the secret at this place is to book as it is always packed with people waiting outside to get a table. However I did notice this time that... More
