This place serves the best Malaysian/Penang dishes. The curry flavor was very plentiful and it tastes exactly like those in Malaysia. They have business meeting package too which is very accomodative for business people. Try their curry prata and fried prawns.

Went here for a business luncheon. The good was fantastic, with an incredible selection of dishes. The hot and sour soup was fantastic, as were the prawns we had. The service was excellent, and the decor fantastic, with a gorgeous water wall.

After working I visited this restaurant with my colleague You can try both Indonesia food and Penang food in this restaurant. Sate, crab, fish was delicious, but some thing were too spicy. And the staff was a little slowly. It took so many time to wait the beer.
