We ventured here as it was close to our hotel and the bar-staff recommended it as a great place to grab some authentic Malaysian cuisine. The restaurant is hidden down an alley and a tad hard to find, but it is well worth it. The...More

... and the food is excellent! This Zagat listed restaurant has true Malaysian dishes like Assam stingray on banana leaf and various types of satay, as well as traditional Chinese dishes for those not wanting to venture far from the beaten path.
