Had dinner with friends here and the food is awesome. They have unlimited self refill coffee and tea (and lemon water) and the staffs are very kind and knowledgable about their foods. Definitely will come here again to try their new menu :)

I saw the update on Facebook & decide to give it a try. Plenty of choices available. I even took a photo of the menu. Unfortunately I was too excited when my order arrived & forgotten to snap a photo of it. I had Ayam...Masak Hitam Kandar. Had me reminiscing the 1st time I had the dish at Pelita Nasi Kandar KL. So nice!! I will be back to try the other dishes on the menu some other day. There are some traditional kuih-muih on sale as well. I was told that the kuih menu changes every other day. Oh yeah, you can also opted to get your meal delivered to you by ordering via the MoreFun app.More

After a period of time I have been visiting here, my friends inform me as they also do Asian lunch.. We had a try on their Asian food and you know what...you cant find any similar to others as the taste are authentic malay. The...Ayam Masak merak and Ikan Assam pedas were among our favourites. We will come back soon definitely and Thanks Sailors and keep it up... The malay kuih also very good. It taste like kampung style...More

I don’t usually do reviews of restaurants in my own hometown but this is a special one. The food was fantastic - my girlfriend had the Valentine’s Day set, the sole paupiette and double chocolate lava was so good. I ordered seafood chowder and lamb...shank which was even better, I loved the food that I ordered. Great environment, great service, and worth the visit.More

Although not exactly central, it's worth the little extra taxi. The braised lamb shank was the pick of the selection from our party. The staff were attentive, all the food was very good, we were made to feel welcome.

One of my fav restaurants. The servers are attentive and very friendly. Food was delicious. Had my parent's anniversary here a few years back which used to be 2 shoplots combined. Unfortunately, looks like the restaurant is now smaller due to the original owner wanting...his lot back. However, will definitely come back here again.More

Definitely not coming again. It's pretty cheap though. My spaghetti was tasteless eventhough my friend's was good (according to him). The staff was very pushy in asking us to order for dessert. Minus point to that. Sorry :(
