Service is efficient. Atmosphere is very nice. Food is excellent. Waiter was very helpful advising us about a dish that might not be for American palate

I live nearby and was so excited to see that they serve Pad Thai. I ordered from their online menu, which I think is easier than a phone call. The food was ready in 30 minutes as promised. It was very tasty and the portion size allowed me to have a nice dinner and a lunch for the next day.... More

I went there for the first time with couple of girlfriends, who were familiar with the place. It doesn't look impressive and appears outdated, making you look closely questioning it's cleanliness. BUT, the food was unbelievably tasty! We had 3 different dishes and each one was delicious in a different way. I can't wait to go back and have the... More

The food here is just amazing. Very authentic and no dilution of flavor. Highly recommend the Nasi Lemak or Malaysian coconut fried rice. The other dishes are pretty good too but these two just stand out for me. Appetizers are fresh and not re-heated and it's a great place for couples or families.

Its economical. The food is good with a nice variety. This was one of the very restaurants that was open on Christmas. The service wasn't great though. We had to remind them that they didn't give us even water. We had to call the waiter to place our order after waiting for 10-15 minutes. These were things that I didn't... More

Decided to give their Thai food a try since Mie Thai closed. Meh! They are so-so. I was not wowed. The pad thai was ok. The fried rice and the other chicken dish that we ordered were also just ok. Too expensive for just so-so food. Ambiance was nice. Parking can be scarce when very busy.

I love Malaysian food & they make authentic rendang curry! The roti canai& roti telur are the main attractions with the Thai sweet iced tea. The laksa is not bad either. The variety of Malaysian goodies and the shrimp chips all add a charm with their next door neighbor Kam Asian market serving up hot dim sum & green tea... More

I have eaten at several branches of this small chain (NYC and East Hanover, NJ) and the food is consistently flavorful and well prepared. I ordered the Belacan Shrimp, a dish I have had many times. The large tender shrimp in a spicy shrimp paste sauce with green beans was wonderful. The brown rice was overcooked and tough (microwaved ?).... More
