The food was ok but the waiter keep forgetting the order. There is a long line but mostly caused by unsure customer when about to order. The murtabak is not that in the standards.

Best Nasi Kandar I've had, especially the Nasi Brayani. Always full of people during dinner time. Be patient and enjoy the food.
