You can get this food anywhere in Malaysia. Nothing special. Mee-Teow is a very common dish. They need a signature dish.

You can have halal seafood in variety of cooking style. Try and taste their asam pedas fish, local vege and more. Cost of meal is affordable and logic.

We came as part of a city tour for lunch. Service was quick and efficient full if locals and fairly basic. Curry was lovely lts if star anise and curry leaves in. We also served vegetables and crispy squid which was popular. Staff very polite and all said goodbye when we left.

What hidden gem this place is. Food was excellent and the service was great. The kids enjoyed the fried chicken and the butter prawns were fantastic.

We asked our taxi driver to recommend a Malaysian restaurant on our way back from the airport to the Rasa Ria and this is where he took us. The place was packed and as a party literally stood up they waved us in and wiped down the table. The waitress was very quick to take our order but we didn't... More

I have been dining here since the 1980s and it always taste the same. Now we would normally order take outs. But still..keep coming back. Our favourite dish is the Assam Fish...even my little boys love it.

We have been at this restaurant on August 2016, following the recommendation of our guide book. We have found a very pleasant surprise because the place was also better than what we expected. We decided to order more dishes so we could taste different things. This restaurant offers three different prices for each plate, depending on the size: S, M,... More

Visited this place in July after a recommendation from a colleague. The food is Malay. We ordered 4 dishes and apart from the vegetable dish, the other 3 (beef rendang, ayam fish) seem not to be cooked fresh, i.e. prepaid in a large batch and slapped onto a plate, fairly cold.

Visited one weeknight and found the restaurant busy... This looked a good sign So we ordered many dish from the menu. All were fair price but servings were on the small size...no good for big eaters. The Sambol Squid was the most tasty dish. But nothing else was stand out. Very average local food. Depends what you are used too.

Thank David W
