Booked a table for dinner. there were 4 of us. Quick order. Roti canai tasty but not hot when served. Nasi Goreng was tasty. Rice average. Family orientated. Good surroundings.

Had dinner with family. Food was excellent and tasty. An adventure for the palate. Everything was freshly made and very well presented. It was moderately priced for the area. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
