Tucked away in a quiet little street. A warm atmosphere and friendly staff welcomed us. Although quiet on a Thursday night the service was great and the food was awesome. Particular mention for the chicken satays. Great meal for a great price.

I use to dine here when they were in Wakefield St over 10 years ago. Since then the price has doubled and standards have halved. Laksa was a real disappointment. Meat was cold on the inside and tough. I got the impression they simply threw it all in and hoped the laksa would warm it up. Nasi Goreng was full... More

This is great cheap eats. The dishes are very reasonably priced and the portions are generous. Our favourite is the nasi goreng. We usually share it and grab a satay or another starter to have a full meal. The decor is functional, but at this price and quality, its a place we go to often.
