Had nasi lemak, some kuih and a “teh tarik” for breakfast. The food tasted good and the price is reasonable. Place is clean. The workers are friendly. If you would like to try delicious Malaysian food, this is the place to go.

Most affordable halal eats in London. Great selection for nasi padang, drinks and sweets (pastries, kuehs, etc). Great for family, friends or even individual. Closes late, and opens early for breakfast.
