Reviewed 6 April 2018

We came for lunch, quite early so I wasn't sure if I wanted a big or small bowl of laksa. Chose a small bowl. The REGRET! I wish I have chosen a big bowl , laksa was just delicious, perfectly spiced ! A MUST TRY.
Cafe is small, so don't expect a 10 page menu. It's a lovely family run cafe, where speciality is laksa and that's what they serve.
Lovely, friendly owners. Made me feel welcome, and I wish I could go back to Penang just for bowl of laksa.

We ate here twice as the assam laksa and char koay teow were delicious! Friendly service and good fresh carrot juice too.

Penang Assam laksa so tasty, well balanced sour tamarind and cheap for a bowl of noodles! Must have the nutmeg juice too. Helpful & cute young boss!

Ok, so everyone goes here for the laksa - which was very nice, but apart from that, there were only 3 other dishes on offer (char kway teow, and something with rice). So don’t make a special trip if you’re after more to eat than just a bowl of laksa!

It was nice but this place probably doesn’t deserve a top 10 rating on the basis of one dish alone.

Dear 888travel,
Thanks for enjoying our Laksa. For your information, we are ranked top 10 based on food quality, food prices and services that we provide to all our customer. Our concept of cafe is based on Penang local food and we prefer to focus on the quality of our food rather than quantity. Anyway, we will take your comment as a positive feedback for us to improve even better in future.

Warm regards,
