It seems overrated online. Tried the chicken rice ball, nothing really great about it. Other places even nicer n better especially the chicken, the meat texture not tender at all.

1. No idea on on opening times but if it's meal time, just go. 2. Parking.Probably best to leave the car at your hotel - assuming in Merlaka Central - and walk 3. If you're on foot, no need to worry about road closure.
