I was looking forward to trying the chicken rice here since everyone said it was nice. A bit disappointed since i felt the food was slightly salty and in terms of taste it was mediocre. Not worth the hype.

We patronised this restaurant for the Malay dishes such as soto, laksa and gado-gado. The local 'kuih muih' is great for a quick bite. There are plenty of parking at the back and ATM machine for convenient a few doors away.

This is a classic favourite with KK locals. They've been open for many years and won the Sabah Tourism "best Kopitiam" restaurant twice now. But they've just moved their restaurant into downtown and should now be included in the visitor listings. It's absolutely one of the best places to eat in KK.
