Had murtobak which had never had before a very light wrap like meal with spicy lamb. Couple of sauces included. Tasted very fresh. Chicken satay starters. Small place but steady trade. Very enjoyable.

We had a nice dinner of goat curry and the pancake and platter. Was a great atmosphere and tasty food. Thanks

Doesn't look like anything special from outside and the tables are very tightly packed inside (also no loo.) Food was very good, and price was very reasonable! Breads were delicious! Unfortunately the jasmine rice was already cold when it was served. Bring your own booze. Allergens are not listed on the menu and we suspect that one or more of... More

Good value, yummy food - worth a visit. The service was really quick and friendly. We had Briyani and chicken curry and both were delicious (large portions) as was the roti. Wine is well priced and generous glass. If you feel like a quick Malaysian meal, you can't go wrong.

In my opinion, this is the worst BYO in Wellington. The place is small and cramped and they always overbook so you end up with too many people cramped around a tiny table. The food is average and overpriced for what you get. I ordered a chicken main which came out on an entree plate- very small serving. I also... More

Great atmosphere a little intimate, very friendly waiters/cooks, was a pleasure. I had a really delicious goat curry and my daughter said her butter chicken curry was the best she'd had. Proper papadums too! Felt warm due to the cosey interior and welcoming staff.

Cruising the streets and we came upon this place. Plenty of selection in a quaint room decorated with tribal masks. The tables are quite close but lovely people in here. Tasty food reasonable price.

Great food if you're into the genre. Food is pretty cheap with decent portions and it comes out of the kitchen swiftly. Service is reasonable - not overly attentive. Who cares - it's all about the food IMO. Relaxed, informal, fun atmosphere. $5 corkage makes it cheap and easy drinkswise. We got there about 6pm on a weeknight. By 6.30... More

A favourite of ours... lovely atmosphere, beautiful food and friendly staff. We always BYO and the meals are very reasonably priced. I actually should be telling you how good it is because one day I'll try to get a table and it will be full! Try the Chicken Rendang..

I ordered the Lamb Kuze with rice and a roti. It was delicious and I would order it again next time I visit. The only down side was that when we ordered the banana dessert, they didn't have it. So then we ordered the Sticky Rice pudding on the specials board only to find out later that they had run... More
