It's a simple local coffee shop with several food stalls to order from. The nyonya laksa was authentic and really tasty! Wantan noodles was the southern style (with chilli sauce). We also packed our lunch from the chicken rice stall, and it was yummy too! Prices are all reasonable as well, costing about MYR4.50 per bowl.

I had the nyonya laksa, very friendly lady hawker eventhough she was very busy preparing the orders, still had time to chat with my sons & I. The gravy was very tasty, fresh ingredients used. i would definitely go back for her laksa

Overall the food at this coffee shop is average and nothing much to shoot about. However personally i like the satay and Nyonya Laksa.

It seems that the more overcrowded a cafe is the more people want to come and that's definitely the case here! Expect to fetch seats from around the cafe, shout to get an order in and wait a while for food. It's pretty standard fair that you'd expect Malaysian Chicken rice, pork etc. It's not worth a special trip, but... More

Queues were long, with many ordering take-aways. After waiting in line for 45mins since 9:45pm, finally the meal came. Almost the same as Penang Char Kueh Tiau in my opinion, but the cockles were really fresh, with very little/no fishy/metallic taste! Worth eating again! & yoo-tiao/yau-char-kuai beside it is worth a try while waiting in line. But too little seats... More

It is called a "cafe" but it is actually a local "coffee shop". One of the best Nyonya Laksa in town. Must try. Worth the cholestrol attack. Take away cost RM$1 more but you get a bit extra. Gravy and noodles are packed separately. Ate here for breakfast. Not sure if they are still selling for lunch. At the same... More
