Love this place. Always popular with the locals who know to ignore the skanky stairwell and run down decor as the food is JUST FABULOUS! Generally have seafood and veges with wide noodles or chicken with egg noodles. But so far, after many many visits,...More

Cheap but tasty and is a go to restaurant when I want a yum quick meal. Doesn't look great but is mouthwatering. I can't wait to go and order the curry laksa again.

Sorry I haven't take any photos before I eat, but it's so amazing the laksa chicken noodle soup, perfect coconut and curry scale, beautiful chicken and just enough portions. Well, I will come back for it next time!

Looking for simple but great asian cuisine that's good value for money? Then this is one place you should visit. Its tucked away upstairs on the corner of Cuba and Manners, above Arty Bees Books. Accessed off Cuba.
