    Never ever order white rice with fried fish...imagine, they serve it with cold vege taken from the fridge..rendang ayam for nasi tomato is a bit hot...the best chawan is still in bangsar...

    I disagree with most of the negative comments here. I've been to this place many times and I find the food to b good, especially the Nasi Lemak Rendang. Drinks r nit good though, just order water=)

    The only joint around these parts of the city that serves our traditional kueh for teatime including the mandatory goreng pisang. Nostalgia is their selling point.

    Sambal which comes with ubi kayu rebus is ALWAYS PEDAS NAK MAMPUS. The asam pedas ikan tenggiri is marvelous.

    The size of the portion explains why most Malaysians are fat. Share one.

    The nasi tomato is not bad but the highlight was their beef rendang - nice texture and flavourful, definitely worth a try.

    The place is okay. Not too bad. The Myanmar workers can get confused with your order. Make sure you repeat your order 3 times so that they'll get it. Price is reasonable.

    the foods are much better than other ordinary overpriced kopitiam, if you expect personal service hire a butler and if you don't have enough rm just buy maggi mee.food good service ok price reasinable

    Painfully slow service. Half boiled eggs had to be returned twice cos it was raw and cold. Half way through breakfast I was asked to move because they placed me on a reserve table. Like seriously?

    I really like the concept of this place but the service SUCKS!!! The staff can just stand there looking zoned out. I even had to take my own menu. Hope the service improves

    The Mee Bandung is just that. With an egg and 3 slices of tofu. And lots of sugar. That's it. No prawn. No chicken. No meat. For RM11.50!

    This place has the worse customer service. The waitresses are never attendig to customers. Always looking inside the kitchen and never at the customers. I gave chance but it never improve. Bad.
