Went here to have their rice at 11am. The staff let me stand there for 5 minutes while he scooped his sotong before telling me they're not selling rice yet. I asked why not, all the dishes are already there and he just ignored me. They make you feel as if you owe them despite being a paying customer. You'll... More

The restaurant offers comfortable seating and even comes with air-conditioning. The food is delicious, but the service is slow, and the waiting staff needs to groom themselves better, and a lesson on food hygiene. Definitely the most expensive roti, nasi kandar in town.

One of the best Nasi Kandar within the Klang Valley. Slightly more expensive compared to other similar restaurants but the combination of curry and spices makes the visit worthwhile. Tosai rawa and roti canai here are good too

I was impressed with the food when I ate there about 10 years ago. My impressions and opinion of this restaurant have not changed. The food was excellent and I have nothing but praise for the staff who were helpful when we were unsure about the dishes we wanted. We were not concerned with the price as we now live... More

We had breakfast.roti canai come with dalca. If u ask for sambal or other gravy,u'll get extra charge. the nasi kandar,mi goreng or maggi goreng also not cheap. Drink also very expensive. The waiter and cashier also not very friendly.their face was like just return from funeral.

This review is based on my experience visiting the Aman Suria outlet. The staff in general have absolute zero understanding of politeness, manners and customer service. This restaurant has great potential to be a reference / case study on "Bad customer service and experience" for the service industry. The unparalleled rudeness can be demonstrated by the staff behind the rice... More

Kayu is a name that's been around for a long time... food is consistence and good. The mixed curry and dried powdered sambal is always good. The only draw back big time is the price. For simple rice, chicken little veg will cost about RM 15 per person, never take the dishes in individual plates as pricing will stick you... More

Had visited this place numerous times over the years. I find that the taste of the food had declined as compared to the past and the numerous nasi kandar restaurant mushrooming. Price is on the high side. However, there is still a good following and is crowded during lunch and dinner

Avoid this place. The food is so pricey. Not worth at all. You can find any other restaurant that serve even better food and more friendly environment.
