“Interesting”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

Food was great - best Beef Rendang we have had since 5 years ago in Cape Town. A bit of a fuss when we arrived - we had taken our own beer as their website said BYO but when we got there they insisted it was only for wine. Eventually they relented and let us drink our beer!

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a whim. It is out of the way in Filleul St, but well worth the effort.
The service was really friendly and efficient. The food was delicious! We had never eaten Malaysian before so it was a bit of a wild guess what we'd order. But the menu is very detailed so it was easy to see what each dish was.
Good value and generous servings.
