Having written a ++ review about this place a while back, I was deeply disappointed that we were overcharged for a plate of Chilly Crabs last Sunday. We've been patrons for over 10 years!Whether it was due to the fact that it was a dismally...More

I didn't mind this restaurant but wouldn't go again. The service was reasonably prompt. I though the food was a bit ordinary, but I'm not an expert on Malaysian food. I didn't particularly like my meal.

So good we went back the next day. Memorable fried barramundi in special sauce, kangkong belachan and spinach belachan, pork hock stew etc. Noisey and busy.

Stayed near by and I was surprised by the lack of eating choices. This was the best of a bad lot, dinner for two, which was two mains and one glass of house wine was $66. Not cheap.

Walked in and had a yummy quick, fresh meal. No problem to make a dish for me without foods I'm allergic to and quick service so we got to the movie without rushing.

A truly surprising gem of a Malaysian Dinner that will surprise even the visiting or resident Malaysian....I was!!! You will definitely visit more than twice to sample more! Booking is advised for dinner quests.

Heard that there was a good Malaysian place in this location, and other Tripadvisor reviews would suggest it is this restaurant. However, the roti (canai) tasted like it was warmed from frozen (like you buy in Asian supermarkets), though was surprisingly reasonable. We had the...More

Whilst this small, bustling and friendly place has a range of great dishes e.g. curry laksa, chilli crabs, beef rendang, nothing is as satisfying for me as a plate of hot white rice with this awesome okra dish.Take my word.

Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor
