A friend and I went there on his recommendation. Prompt service. Roti followed by eggplant sambal, Singapore style noodles with prawns and a fish stir fry. All for $47. Superb!

Petaling Street is always reliable for a good, quick and reasonably priced meal. You can't beat the Beef Nasi Lemak. In need of a Malaysian fix, you can't go wrong at Petaling Street.
