Best Nasi Lemak I've experienced so far. Very reasonable prices and will definitely be back. Its very hard to reserve a table at busy times.

Food was yummy and servings were big. Every dish we ordered was good and if you are not a big eater, one dish can feed two. Drinks were only ok.

The place is a bit crowded and service a bit slow and struggling to cope. But that is the sign of good food as it is busy! We had the lobak and it was one of the best in Australia that we have tasted. Others are poor imitation but this one is jolly good! We also had the KL Hokkien... More

Visited this restaurant as the wife wanted to have mee goreng. The mee goreng was really good but I had the rice with rendang which was just average. A decent place to have simple Malaysian cuisine. A hit and a miss.

The food has been up and down, but one thing has remained pretty good is the rice with the fish meals.

The ambiance is pleasant and the staff are polite. We reached there around 7 pm and were fortunate to get seating immediately, though there were other patrons. We were a group of 4, and we ordered seafood in different forms. The Curry Laksa and seafood sizzler was possibly the standout items for me. Service was good

Been to the outlet at Glen Waverley once and ordered a satay dish. Found that it was microwaved and still had the frozen taste. Have not been here ever since. There was also a great thirst long after eating the food.

This restaurant blew my mind and I couldnt think of a way to fault it, the food was a generous amount, it was really tasty and the place wasn't that noisy. The waiter gives you a peice of paper where you write a code off the menu. Example, if you want boneless chicken rice with special Mallaca sauce you would... More

Walk in off the street, no booking needed. Was welcomed and seated by friendly staff. Nice selection of dishes. Didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive. Reasonably priced. You can BYO wine.
