Friendly staff and good food. Loved the signature apom berkuah and the pai tee. Simple place with authentic food. Unfortunately they're closing down next month. Fortunately for me, they just opened one in Selangor Club. Location: steps away from Orang Utan House, in an alley.

This place serves great peranakan snack foods such as mee siam and laksa. The apom berkuah which is a traditional peranakan dessert snack was very delicious. Drop by when you have the chance!

A really nice restaurant, enjoyed both dishes tried here, and reading the history of the family run restaurant. Tried the laksa and the chicken stew, both were excellent, full of flavour, and plenty of meat and spices. The lady who served us was great with...More
