The best nasi lemak I've had so far. Must try their fried chicken wings, super crunchy batter and super juicy inside.

Food and their coconut rice are quite consistently well done. With the demand, they charge more and give lesser portions. If u can accept that, u will enjoy eating here. I usually pick their chicken wing, fried egg, luncheon meat and long beans with extra chilli.

The restaurant is now larger but the portions so much smaller (you need to ask even for more sambal and cucumbers).. and prices have nearly doubled. I would not go out of my way to eat here.. so many better nasi lemak options.

Nasi lemak and their dishes are nice but they give small portions, even for chilli and cucumbers. U may have to order double portion for food u like, and keep requesting for chilli and cucumbers.

Everyone queues there - locals & tourists, it opens for dinner so the queues already start in the afternoon. But it's totally worth it standing 15 minutes in the queue. Super good food - coconut rice is very tasty, nasi lemak as well - apart from this you have a wide selection of all the vegies, fish balls, prawns etc.... More
