Very good food with generous serves! Reasonable prices too! Highly recommended for those who would want a taste of Malaysian Banana leaf food. The fish curry is particularly delicious!

Came here for lunch on a Tuesday, very quiet, food came out quick. Nasi lemak was standard but the beef rendang was the hero of the dish. Overall enjoyable for the price. Wish the had more chilli on the dish. Service was friendly but reserved.

The food is nice. Mutton curry is tender and flavorful. However, some of their desserts are limited as they don't have it when we wanted to order it.

Halal. Try their Banana Leave Rice... I love the 'Kari Ikan' and Daal. Don't worry about the portion you'll see how big it is. Very nice, friendly and helpful staff and owner.

We met the owner/chef and he was so friendly & accommodating. His cooking is amazing. If you love mamak food, banana leaf rice in general, this place is pretty good. I loved the detail in the little condiments like Raita and Rasam.

The food was good. Good level of spiciness and very reasonable price. The guy that is called Vishnu, with short dark hair that looked after us was absolutely lovely and is doing an amazing job! Thanks for a great visit! Keep up the good work!

We ate there late on Friday evening. We didn't get there until about 9:30pm, so some of the menu choices were not available. However, what we did eat was delicious and the portions were generous. The portions were so generous that two of us couldn't...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
