Being to this place ance and never being back since. The food was OK but nothing special. Can't say the best Malaysian dishes ever. For the price you pay for, it is simply OK and nothing more. Don't think i will be recommending this place...More

Cheap but only in the price. While the downstairs is a tad unprepossessing, the food is excellent and cheap. We had a couple of drinks, entrees and mains - all for $55! Food was fresh, non greasy and authentic.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
