“Okay, lah”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We enjoyed our visit, but I think overall the food was just OK and quite pricey. We had the dancing fish (impressive, but crunchy and not much flesh on it), the roasted duck (okay), assam prawns (tasty) and kangkung (delicious). This is in a shopping mall. The shrimp crackers and dip that came with the meal were quite nice. Wine was very expensive. The amosphere is nice, service was good, but nothing particularly special about the food.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We passed by this restaurant after shopping and decided to give it a try. What a find! The service was lovely and all the dishes we ordered were excellent. The flavours were delicate and varied and the kids meals interesting.

Will definitely be back.

“Efficient service and consistently tasty”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This is a good place to have a group meal with family or friends - with many tasty dishes to choose from and delicious drinks, efficient service. I like the one in Bangsar Shopping Center. Highly recommend the Ayam bumbu, Dancing fish and the ribs. The keropok and sambals are great accompaniments to the dishes.

“Excellent food, great service”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We love coming here! The food is full of flavours, the price is reasonable for the quality and service, and the staff are really polite and attentive. The quantity may not be large, but ordering about 4 dishes for a family of 5 will suffice.

“Good food but very pricey”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 via mobile

The food is good! Ordered- dancing fish, satay and sambal petai prawns and were very impressed. Petai was very small for the price we paid. However its quite pricey so it's only for special treats.
