One of my regular places that I go for lunch with friends. My usual dish is the combination laksa, my friends had the red curry beef and entree size corn soup. Friendly service and value for money. Popular place for locals.

The Laksa arrived quickly, which was appreciated. The staff were nice. The veggies tasted like they were frozen though and the broth wasn't very tasty. It lacked spice. The lychee and coconut water soda we had was very sweet and syrupy. Might be to some...More

Excellent food. Loved the Laksa. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Didn’t realise it was BYO until we sat down. There’s a Coles about a block away if we want to have any alcohol

We were told by several locals that the laksa was good. They were right, the laska is very good. The menu seemed to have some authentic Malaysian dishes but we only wanted laksa. This seems to be a Chinese restaurant that sells Malaysian food. They...More
