It’s a climb up a slope but you can’t miss it when looking for the place due to the queue. But it does move fairly quickly. Don’t expect any ambience or service (hence no one hangs around for long) but the food speaks for itself....More

You will probably have to line up for about 10-15 minutes if you want to eat here, but it's definitely worth it. I'm a little shy so I was a bit surprised when I noticed that they seat you with complete strangers at any table....More

Came at a peak period and had to wait for about 10-15 minutes but the wait was worth it as the food was absolutely delicious - we had the curry beef brisket noodles and the original beef brisket noodles. Will definitely be back!

Getting there I was there during their off peak hour (around 3 plus in the afternoon), there was not queue and we were led to our tables pretty fast. For info, there were 11 of us in the group and we had to be seated...More

Affordable. Springy noodles with tasteful soup broth and tender beef brisket. Be prepared for long queues if you going during meal hours though.
