Reviewed 25 March 2017

We were bowled over by Chef Richard's renditions of traditional Singaporean street food. Highly recommended are his Char Kway Teow, Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai. CKT is a rice noodle dish in a sweet black sauce fried to perfection with "wok hei" (literally pan flavour) and stuffed so generously with ingredients that the noodles were hard to find! Nasi Lemak is a fragrant coconut rice dish with traditional sides of peanuts, anchovies, fried egg and cucumber, accompanied by sambal chilli and achar (pickles). Roti Canai (aka Roti Prata) is a fried flatbread eaten with curry. Each dish is meticulously made from scratch and presented in just the way that every Singaporean would instantly recognise as the real deal (see pictures)! What's more amazing is that Richard hails not from Singapore but Sri Lanka, and he researches all his dishes and takes feedback seriously to ensure that his cooking is as close to the original recipes as possible. The dishes that I've reviewed are certainly the best I've tasted outside of Singapore, and I've been around a little. He has quite an extensive menu of other Asian dishes as well (including his native Sri Lanka, Thai and Chinese) which we look forward to trying at our next visit.

A restaurant which can offer a variety of South East Asian cuisines, be it Indian, Sri Lankan, Malaysian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Chinese. The advantage is the element of fusion of these cuisines which you can experience in the dishes, the decor, the staff and the clientele.

Food nicely flavor-layered. Thai or Indian, pick your heat level and get your taste buds ready for a treat.

I've been here many times! I hear their Malaysian customers coached them to improve their Malaysian dishes. And it shows. Last week we had their fried pompano and was very good.

Their kongfu chow meen is excellent. I always have the seafood version.

Rendang is also recommended.

Because it is a family business excuse then for a bit slower, but the food is good and affordable!

Food was good but our appetizer came 15 minutes after our entrees. The staff is friendly but everything is slow. Slow to take our order,slow to bring our food, slow to pay our bill. Too bad because the food was good.
