The food was good, but I can’t say great. Fast service for a busy restaurant. For a Malaysian restaurant I was expecting more spices and flavor.

I wanted to try a cuisine I never had before. It was like having a meal that was a fusion in style between Chinese and Indian. It was very flavorful.

If you like a combination of Asian and Indian dishes check this place out. Everything was great from the appetizers to the main course to dessert.

Good food and service at a price that can't be beaten. We let the waitress help us order and she didn't steer us wrong.

Came here for lunch with a friend. The staff was friendly and efficient. The ambience was delightful, not too noisy, not too quiet. The menu was vast but the dish I tried was OK. It could have been spicier!
