My wife and I stayed in Singapore for years and we know what real Malay food is. This place is our favorite and we always love it.

We decided to give this place a try again after it changed management after 15 years. But we weren't too impressed. Yes the service had definitely improved, although the staff didn't speak fluent English. They were friendly. The food was not at all authentic. I...More
