I had been previously several times and had a good meals. This time perhaps the cook had changed, as the food was terrible and not authentic. Don't bother- it is a waste of money.More

Poor quality food at exorbitant pricing. We ordered dinner from Okra and it was below average & v expensive. Never ordering from them again.

Returned for dinner after a long time. We shared the lohbak & curry puffs for entree then had Malaysian curry chicken, rice & roti for main. Food was tasty.

Some nice flavours in beef curry and chicken stir fry but a majority of inedible meats. Grisly cuts that were inexcusable. Especially as this is one of the more expensive local Asian options. So easy to avoid this but it completely ruins the meal.

We went here with friends we hadn’t seen for ages.Even for a Monday night the rest was quite full.Parking was very easy nearby.The entrees of spring rolls and curry puffs were fine.But my Nasi Goreng a favourite of mine was bland and quite without flavour.My...wife’s salmon was generous and apparently very enjoyableMore

The food was wonderful very tasty and beautifully presented. Quick service and very attentive hosts. The owner is absolutely delightful. We would definately recommend this lovely place. This is our third time here. We enjoyed the tangy oysters, Spring rolls, Me goring, Gado Gado and...the Quail. Well presented, very tasty and fresh at a great price.More

Nothing too adventurous in the cooking or the layout of this restaurant, but a nice place for a lunch for 2. Wine list is as expected.

What a wonderful surprise to find this Malaysian restaurant for our lunch. The staff were very pleasant, the food was delicious and authentic, the servings were excellent to share with 6 of us and reasonably priced ($70 per couple). Highly recommend this place and we...will definitely return again soon.More
