Just like Thailand this restaurant is the land of smiles! Food is pretty good and they have real Thai beer. Take a trip with out leaving town.

My wife and I stayed in Singapore for years and we know what real Malay food is. This place is our favorite and we always love it.

We decided to give this place a try again after it changed management after 15 years. But we weren't too impressed. Yes the service had definitely improved, although the staff didn't speak fluent English. They were friendly. The food was not at all authentic. I...More

Went there for lunch. Food was not bad and may be worth going back, but service should certainly improve. The server who was also the person manning the reception desk/area served our table. She brought in bowls, one of which had something nondescript on it....More
