Our hotel told us about this hotel, and it was very good.We had three main courses, plus rice, and two soft drinks ( they don't serve alcohol ) and it was the equivalent to £10. The service and food were very good. Given the coachload of tourists that came in it caters for the bus groups, but it means they... More

Been struggling for good restaurants since arriving in KK. This tops my list by far. We had beef rendang, pepper chicken stir fry, and mixed veg - all full of flavour and the service was quick and efficient. But its popular so get here early or after 8 - we arrived about 7.10 and by 7.30 it was full of... More

Actually it is a Nyoya style of cooking. Probably the owner is a Nyoya i.e. Chinese who lived in Malaysia for generations. It may offer Malay food but it will not be as good as its chinese dishes. The best dish that is unique to this restaurant is the Assam Pedas and Fried Sotong. You will not be able to... More

You can get this food anywhere in Malaysia. Nothing special. Mee-Teow is a very common dish. They need a signature dish.

You can have halal seafood in variety of cooking style. Try and taste their asam pedas fish, local vege and more. Cost of meal is affordable and logic.

We came as part of a city tour for lunch. Service was quick and efficient full if locals and fairly basic. Curry was lovely lts if star anise and curry leaves in. We also served vegetables and crispy squid which was popular. Staff very polite and all said goodbye when we left.

What hidden gem this place is. Food was excellent and the service was great. The kids enjoyed the fried chicken and the butter prawns were fantastic.

We asked our taxi driver to recommend a Malaysian restaurant on our way back from the airport to the Rasa Ria and this is where he took us. The place was packed and as a party literally stood up they waved us in and wiped down the table. The waitress was very quick to take our order but we didn't... More
