I ordered the Sweet and sour chicken for lunch yesterday. It was dry and tough and difficult to eat. They had deep fried it first and obviously overcooked it. There was no apology given. The attitude was just"too bad". Its cheap at $12 but that's still no excuse for cooking bad food. I will never go back.

Typical wet windy night. Place still packed. Small venue and previous night a queue of 10+ outside the door. No problems tonight. Satay and money bags were good. Roti was also good but a little sweet. Chicken curry was very good. Chicken not too dry. Oily dish but good flavour. Beef rendang good also. Will ask for extra spic heat... More

We ordered beef rendang and also roti canai wth chicken curry sauce. The beef rendang is extremely nice. They are very generous with the quantity. The chicken curry is very nice. The roti canai may need some improvement. Overall, it's a very good restaurant which provides authentic Malaysian food with very reasonable prices. We will definitely go back to have... More

Actually got into this little place early and beat the dinner rush. It's a great place to go for a meal with family or friends. Service is fast and food is delicious. The food arrives fast so don't be surprised when your main arrives before you have finished your starters. Small restaurant so if you want a table reserve especially... More

Been here a couple of times now. And this time, again, I was amazed at the speed of service - without losing the quality of food. It's quick and simple food. But so, so tasty. Two of us shared a starter and had some roti on the side and a main each. And we were both stuffed. It's not everywhere... More

This is a fast food restaurant with a small number of tables and the not a place to go for a long dinner. Order, eat and leave! BUT, the food is really good and the service is quick and efficient. I just love the quality, flavours and amount of food for the money, great value. Definitely would go back here,... More

With high expectations we went to KK Restaurant. The Char Kuey Teow was different from the Penang or KL version. A bit sweeter and even though we were a bit surprised on the first bite, it kind-of grows on your palate. The Johor style Achar is unusual but then I haven't had Johor's Achar before so can't comment too much... More

The biggest drawcard for me is that it is pork-free, which is unusual for Malaysian Chinese (semi Nyonya Cuisine) run eatery. Another Welington Malaysian Chinesw eatery, Satay Kajang on Dixon Street also claims to be pork free because it claims to be Halal. But KK is the clear winner because of its affordability. Been there just over week ago and... More

Extremely good food - fast service and very easy on the pocket. But you must book as not much seating.
