For food and value I'd rate this place excellent. Unfortunately at 7pm on a Saturday they'd already sold out of a lot of what we ordered, and for some reason they never tried to take a drinks order from us. So our bill ended up at around $20 per person for a lot of really really tasty food. Maybe they... More

We went to this place on a rainy Sunday night and it was busy. We ordered the beef and asparagus and pineapple fried rice. Both dishes were full of flavour. The fried rice had a good assortment of seafood and the beef dish had just the right amount of spice. There was just the two of us which was the... More

The food was mostly very good, but we were half way through our entrees before the water & drinks arrived which we had ordered at very beginning. Also two of the drinks ingredients had run out, which suggests that drinks are a low priority here. Suggest you bring some bottled water with you. Anyway, still well worth visiting for the... More

Get there early as the tables fill up fast and the restaurant is small. One server takes care of the entire room so sometimes you'll have to wait. The food comes out quickly and is really delicious. The appetizer, roti canai, is a must try. Flaky, sweet dough that you dip in a curry sauce. Yum! The pineapple fried rice... More

This handsome little spot on Lonsdale has become a favourite. Its addictive roti canai is a sort of flaky pancake that you dip in a curry sauce. Its spicy laksa soups are also irresistible. Choose from an assortment of curried dishes, add coconut rice and maybe a meat or tofu sate, and you have a delicious meal for a group... More

Stopped in last night after watching a flick. Food was as expected, top quality, tasty and decent portions. Haven't been there in a while but still one of the best alternatives on the north shore. We always order extra for leftovers!!

We have always enjoyed the food but it seems the portions are smaller and just not as good as it use to be. The 80 dollar bill left me feeling kind of ripped off. I do not have any incentive to go back. To bad.

First time at this small restaurant. For appetizer I had chicken satay which was done perfectly with excellent spicing. For the main, I had the sambal beef with asparagus that comes with white rice. Ingredients were fresh and tasty and the sambal sauce was just right with respect to spiciness. It was very busy but the service from the only... More

Had a business lunch here and the service was quick, friendly and food adjusted to our taste. Our food was served fresh and the quantity just right. Would go back again and not hesitate to recommend to others. Nothing fancy here, small and eager to please. We reduced the "spicy scale, but probably wouldn't next time, left the tast a... More
