We loved the people at this restaurant and the food was great too. We went here many times during our holiday. The atmosphere was great with an open microphone for singing too.

We had mixture of starters including salt and pepper squid which was fantastic. The mains were equally tasty not over spicy. One warning, bring cash . They don't accept cards.

Fantastic traditional food for all family, we had beef rendang which was best I've ever had, chicken nyonya..nice and spicy but incredibly tasty. Forget all the pretentious larger restaurants in the area, this is unassuming and excellent.
