Not fine dining, but if you want really tasty, authentic food, then this is the place. Hubbies favourite, Laksa, did not disappoint, happy man. Really helpful, friendly waiting staff.

Returned to Chef Lagenda for a chicken curry laksa. Service here was good and friendly. The laksa was missing the taste of a good quality curry powder, there was plenty of chicken in the bowl but a shortage of vegtables. What this dish needed was...More

Eat here a lot with work. It's always busy. If you want a table - avoid the peak times otherwise you might have to queue for a bit. Food is always great. Delicious, tasty and fresh. Love their laksas which are always full of flavour....More
