We went to the restaurant quite late due to the traffic and since we were 5 people, getting 5 people to decide where to eat too a while. But I must say, this was an excellent choice. There was a wide variety of food on the menu; the food came hot and under the 20min they had said it would take since they were busy. The service was great, the chinese ladies were amazing, very warm and patient. As a foreigner, I highly recommend this place. Great food. Great service

Great wholesome food at a good price close to hotels and the night market.

Service is friendly and their menu is quite extensive. Prices are good too!

We’ll be back!

Been twice - once for lunch and once for dinner and will likely be going back. It’s tucked down a path off the main road and looks rundown, but the food will put a smile on your face. It’s hearty and has that homemade feel to it. We had the fish, pork, beef rendang, mee goreng, broccoli, tofu - it was all good. The menu is extensive and as my wife is vegetarian, it’s always difficult for her to get leafy veggies and to feel like she’s having a proper meal. She wasn’t disappointed here. A nice discovery and well worth trying out. Our 5 year old daughter is a picky eater too, but there’s plenty of options here and it’s the most she’s eaten on this holiday. Hence - will likely be going back.

Went here for quick cheap meal and we were not disappointed - serves were on the small size but very flavoursome - if you want bacon for breakfast this is the place to go!
