This cafe serves typical Malaysian dishes but some local favorites added. The manuk pansoh and umai are among them. It is a halal restaurant. The location is strategic on the road side with ample parking lots.

Service at thia cafe is good, but what saperates it from the rest is the quality of the food, and its price. A small meal could feed two, and the price is resonable. The best place to enjoy Dayak cooking if you are on a...More
