I like the food but the service is slow. You really have to wait for you food. I think the cleanliness of this place can be further improved. They need more fans, it is too hot. Airflow is bad.

A Malaysian businesswoman in Miri recommended this inn to me, and it turned out to be good advice. The rooms on the two floors above the restaurant are new and nicely furnished and priced right. They have all the amenities I look for -- wi fi, TV, air con, hot shower, and cleanliness. Good location a block from the riverfront in one direction and a few blocks from the Top Spot seafood center in the other direction. The staff are friendly and well-trained. I would gladly stay there again.
The noodle dishes in the restaurant are good value, and the restaurant is lively most nights with both Malaysians and tourists -- a good sign.

As it seemed lots of locals ate here we figured it must be good. Food was fresh & tasty. Service was friendly & beer was reasonably priced (RM8 for large bottle of Tsing Tao or 3 cans tiger for RM13) We ate here 2 times during our 3 night stay & all enjoyed our meals both times.
