Since its opening late last year, this place had always been really packed. We took advantage of the quiet times just after new year and finally managed to get a seat without having to wait.

The food was pretty good and quite authentic. Nasi Lemak was good and so was the chicken satay though I found it a bit sweet. The peanut dipping sauce was simply great! Murtabak was disappointing though and cendol was really too expensive ($6) for what it's worth.

Overall a decent Malaysian restaurant. The street food like roti canai is really their best sellers. The quality of the dhall and other curries can be improved.

Went here for lunch last week with friends. Great food, fresh, fast service. The roti was great, so was chicken and beef satays and ayam goreng. The mee goreng was a little too hot for me, but overall very good.

If your craving for your Mee Goreng or Nasi Lamak, or charcoal grilled satay fix this is the place to come to satisfy your urge. The food is tasty, service is pleasant and efficient and you really can't go too wrong here. The place is pretty new and busy is brisk. You could be forgiven for thinking you are in Malaysia or Singapore surrounded by the sights and smells but not the tropical heat. Worth another visit to try out other parts of the menu.
