The tarts were freshly out from the oven and reminded me of the ones my mum made. Authentic nyonya pineapple tarts in packs of 15 at RM13 per pack. There is another packaging of 10pieces each but it wasn't as fresh.

I went there with Singaporeans and Japanese friends on 29 May 2017. Good and very reasonable price for their set meal for 10 pax with 8 dishes plus 1 dessert at ringgit 300. They also sell noya kueh, quite a variety.

They serve up some really tasty kuih here, and although we had to queue up for the ondeh-ondeh, it's really worth it. Their ondeh-ondeh is the biggest I've ever seen and has the right amount of gula melaka filling which bursts into your mouth. It's...More

Mee siam and pie tees were great, however kuehs are not as good as expected based on reviews. If you are a fan of bangawan solo, you will be disappointed.
