This place is good! The line was super long, and you can understand why when you taste their laksa. We came here with the intention of eating in, but because the lines were so long we ordered take away instead. Would recommend!

Dont miss this laksa. We've travellesld around malaysia and we couldnt find anything close tho this laksa. Fried rice, vegetarian noodles and lemon chicken are also very good. We go to this place at least once a week.

Best laksa in town without a doubt. Very busy but well organized, my partner and I had the seafood laksa and loved every drop. Go people!

Loved the food. We had the chicken and corn soup. Followed with beef rendang and malaysian chicken curry. Flavours were excellent. Turn up early and you will not need to wait for a table.

Not the king of laksa actually. I thought the food was rushed, roti was under cooked, the peanut sauce nothing special and the Laksa oversized without a lot of depth, very simple. This laksa doesn't look like their image used.

Good location, food is pretty authentic. Large servings and well priced. They could improve on their services. The waiters are mainly students, in my view. Not too expect a high level of service, but it is a convenient place for a quick bite. Give it...More
