I didn't mind this restaurant but wouldn't go again. The service was reasonably prompt. I though the food was a bit ordinary, but I'm not an expert on Malaysian food. I didn't particularly like my meal.

So good we went back the next day. Memorable fried barramundi in special sauce, kangkong belachan and spinach belachan, pork hock stew etc. Noisey and busy.

Whilst this small, bustling and friendly place has a range of great dishes e.g. curry laksa, chilli crabs, beef rendang, nothing is as satisfying for me as a plate of hot white rice with this awesome okra dish.Take my word.
