A somewhat oldfashioned family-run Malaysian restaurant, and an old faithful. The chicken curry and roti is the dish that gets us back time after time, but the rendang is also delicious (but not hot, if you like your rendang hot).

This small Singapore / Malay inspired restaurant does a fabulous chicken curry, nasi gorang, sambal, roti and dumplings.

Lovely hosts who care and are willing to help. Have taken many clients for lunch here and always a great feed!

We stumbled across the Sentosa whilst exploring Crows Nest and we decided to try it. The front of house service was wonderful (especially the lady) - she had a fantastic memory and we gracious to a fault. Some of the food was authentic and other dishes provided for local customer preference - palatable, good nosh.
We were however bemused by the person who then presented us with the bill; no smile, an arrogant vacant look followed by a military trudge whilst returning to his roost within the small restaurant. The impression was that we were not welcome at all and it had been a real chore serving us. We saw him in his full splendour, catering to his regular customers but unfortunately, we must have done something on the day of our visit to lose this entitlement - what it was, is unknown to this day, The unbecoming behavior which we encountered must be published as a warning to other first time visitors - tread on egg shells should you decide to visit this restaurant to ensure that you do not upset the "bill-bringer".

After 15 years of eating here I can comfortably say this is great food. The decor is a little tired but Willie and Debbie always make us feel at home. The salt and Pepper pork is delicious and i have never had it prepared this was anywhere else. The round beans with sambal and of course the Chicken Curry with the famous roti are an institution. If it is on the menu try the fish with ginger and shallot. The cleansing orange rather than chocolate makes a welcome change. If you are looking for good authentic Singaporean food go no futher than Sentosa.

The food here is great. I love the house specialty chicken curry with roti and the Kwai teow noodles, it's all authentic Malaysian cuisine done well. Good value wine list, limited choice but all good wines to choose from. Love Willie who is the owner, waiter and chef. Its decor is cheap and cheerful but it's all about the food. I'm always keen to eat there and will be back again and again.
