Overall, we are rather satisfied with the food served, however the restaurant is rather small and not much room to move around. But if you go there only for food is ok, but to stay a while longer to mingle with friends would be a...More

Best crispy calamari in town. The crispy boneless duck is unique, only found here, is truly crispy, and addictive. Try the eggplant belacan for something exotic. They seem to be the only ones serving Hokkien mee (Malaysian noodles) in Houston.
