We finally visited this restaurant after hearing such positive reviews. The food certainly lived up to expectations but the the service and ambience fell a long way short. The meal was very over-priced for such a disappointing experience.

We booked a table at 1pm for lunch and the restaurant was full when we arrived. The first thing we noticed was the noise! We had to shout to make ourselves heard over the loud music and the shouted conversations of other tables. This is mainly due to the small narrow space with hard concrete walls/floor and the lack of soft furnishings.

At first the service was very attentive and the waiter was very good at helping us make our selections. Thereafter things started to go downhill as two different servers took over.

We ordered two sharing plates between three people as appetizers. The flavours were fantastic and serving sizes were very generous. One plate would have been sufficient.

Midway through our appetizers after 10mins, the new waitress tried to deliver our main courses. We asked her to give us more time to finish our first course but she tried to leave the main course (lamb shank) on the table. We had to insist she take it back to the kitchen to keep it warm.

After that the service got worse and worse. Nobody refilled our water glasses or checked if we needed anything. We had to wait a long time to attract the attention of the waitress to clear our dishes and bring the next course or refresh our wine. She was sitting at the back of the restaurant eating her lunch and the other staff were leaning on the wall of the kitchen looking at their phones the whole time.

The main courses were tasty and generous but the bad service ruined our enjoyment. We got the impression that perhaps the regular staff were on holiday and they had invited untrained family or friends to cover for them. Who knows. Surely it can't be this bad normally judging by the other reviews.

Sadly, we won't be back. The food is good but the noise and the poor service make it impossible to have a relaxing lunch.

Impeccable service! The staff were very accommodating to all of our requests, and they did it all with a great smile!
Their signature laksa is one too big a bowl for one! Jam packed of ingredients and flavor! Yums!

The ambience was quite alright with the right amount of scented air. However, in consideration with the talking from the crowd and the background music, it sounded quite messy.

Had thei signature durian cake, chendol cake and the quenching longan tea.
Both cakes were just about right, though it could have been better if the texture was improved perhaps by being a tad bit more moist.

Durian cake did live up to its name with just about the right amount of durian paste making it not overtly unpleasantly rich, but the chendol cake was a disappointment. There wasn't any taste of Gula Melaka which chendol was famous for. However, it was surprising how the jelly and attap seed was incorporated into the cake.

The drink was the saviour for both the cakes, not too sweet but as what the menu mentioned, it was truly a quencher.

Thumbs up for creativity. Would definitely come again to try its main courses.
