Stumbled across this place and was intrigued by the line of people waiting to get in so joined the queue (assuming the food had to be good). We waited maybe 20 minutes to be seated and were served very quickly and efficiently. (The staff obviously...More

Have been before but was disappointed this time. Service was poor, but the food is ok. Not as cheap as you think when you look at the menu. I think it is time to look at service quality. Watching through the window is still fun.

Great food that evokes the taste of Malaysia. Good selection of delights for those missing home. The roti is as good as those found in Malaysia. Quick service and even though no bookings are taken the turnaround is very quick.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the

through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
