Owner and chef is rather arrogant, rude and did not give us true indication of portion sizes that led us to over order for our group. Meals are too pricey and unreasonably price. He will tell you that the portion is meant for one person but in actual fact it could easily fed 2 person. As a result we ordered... More

Visited on Friday night. Simply excellent. Rendang and butter chicken beautifully executed and great service from the main man, Jimmy. If we'd been in Langkawi longer we'd have gone back.

This place was very close to our accommodation and after reading Trip Advisor reviews one afternoon, we decided to tear ourselves away for the cheap eats of the night markets and give this place a go. The waitress recommended the butter chicken masala and the beef rendang and OMG the flavours!!! We ended up going back there a few days... More

We decided to find a restaurant a bit further out from Pantai Tengah, to take advantage of the scooter we had rented.

The chef and waiters noticed us and opened the... More

Everything about this place was perfect for us. Our hotel booked the table and arranged the taxi we turned up and ate the food and drank the wine, an unexpected surprise to have... More

We went there for dinner over Easter. We made the journey from the Andaman hotel about 40 min away with two other families. I can say it was the best meal we had in Malaysia. Jimmy's wife who is the chef is phenomenal. The beef rendang was excellent and the fish curry was the best I have ever had. Delicate,... More

Superb food in a brilliant, friendly, family run restaurant. Everything was great from the great drinks to the Malaysian food and western food. A brilliant experience - we went back for a second meal. Jimmy and his family are really lovely.
