Not overly impressed. Better than the two next door but only average food. Felt reviews were overrated. Probably just not for us really. Food was average as was everything about the place. Reasonably priced for what you get. Would not return or recommend.

Best Myonya Fish Curry. Melts in your Mouth. Been here so many times & the Food & the Hospitality is out standing. As always is. Best Food in Batu Ferringhi. Great Malaysian Food. You can’t go Wrong in a Place like this.

The menu doesn't give any details about what's in any of the dishes, and no pictures are provided. The beef rendang was tasty, but nothing great. The people are very nice and make you feel welcome, so it does feel like being in someone's living...More
