Went for Sunday lunch. Expected it to be busy but was quiet. We had the char kway teow, mee siam and chicken laksa. All dishes were delicious. All authentic, but prices could be better.

If you are looking for authentic Malaysian food, you must go and have a meal here. Good service, large portions and very tasty food. Accommodates large groups - we have always gone for large family gatherings. Highly recommended.

It's accords the road from work and always busy. Price is affordable and food is tasty. You can call beforehand to order and pick up the food if too busy to stay and eat out during work lunch hours.

I always order the vegetarian laksa, a good balance of vegetables, tofu and noodles. I find the chicken and prawn laksa don't contain near as much vegetable portions.

Always get a quality meal here without the sweetness of the Papa Rich chain. No frills but authentic Malaysian cuisine. We had the Sar Hor Fun and nasi goreng, medium heat. We knew what to expect and were not disappointed.
