Refused to served only 2 Teh Tarik and Spring rolls which we wanted to snack before a movie. Apparently the restaurant has a minimum order of 8 pounds PER PERSON!! Beware!!! IMHO all customers must be accepted no matter what the order is. First time I heard of a minimum order for a restaurant like this. Waiter was not even apologetic and treated us like second class citizens. An insulting...more

Love this place. Love that there are so many Malay and Singaporean people eating here. Love the well intentioned but slightly disorganized service. And especially love the food.

This is a great place for SE Asian comfort food so expect it to be a little spicy. Great rendang, great noodles, and the fish stew is excellent. Recommend eating family style so come with friends.

This is a halal restaurant, and numerous families filtered through at lunchtime. We were in Malaysia earlier this year, and were ecstatic to see nasi lemak on their menu. The excitement was short-lived, however, as it arrived with large, dry chunks of chicken breast. The entire dish lacked depth and spice of flavor, including the pickled vegetables. Their kway teow was chock full of squid that...more
