Cahaya lestari specializes in hakka cuisine. Almost all of their foods are nice and worth to try but its fish head soup is worth a particular mention, delicious, with white broth and vegetables, a truly delight.. dont expect nice luxurious interior in this place, but people come here to eat and they know what they're expecting.

The name of the restaurant changed to "sinar lestari"

Old skool chinese food,the yam ha,angsio tofu,saklon (bullfrog?),fried noodle with chive is good

Though i read so many good reviews on the fish soup,i find it so so,the fish that i got in my soup smells a bit like kerosene,maybe i was not lucky :(

The fish soup was delicious and comfort food. The garlic fried squid was tender yet crispy. Best part was the bill. Month of Oct was promotion with Standchart card. 50% discount on the bill. Our discounted bill was about USD 27 for 3 people including fish soup, stir fried vegetable, fried squid, wasabi fish, 2 bottle of beer and ice tea .
