    Amazing Singaporean Laksa - highly recommended! FYI: They only take credit/debit card if you get $12 worth of food/drinks, otherwise it's cash only.

    First time visiting. I tried the House Special with shrimp. It was a hefty serving for $7.50. The food & service was good. $12 minimum for credit, bring cash.

    Okra and shrimp was amazing. The boneless duck was as well. Generally great food, but priced on the high side for the area.
