    As a Malaysian, I personally feel the food here is below average. There's nothing special about it, just mediocre for taste.

    Curry laksa: good chicken and mushroom with fish cake, a bit spicy and very filling.

    They don't take card, which for a city restaurant is a fucking joke. Plus what we got tasted like cuppa noodles.

    Nearest to home for Malaysian and Singaporean students. Decent bah kut teh, live to eat it on a cold day. Big menu, lots of variety, you'd see something familiar from home.

    I'm a laksa addict, so when I saw the article posted on the window boasting that this place had the best laksa in town, I had to try it--and was not at all let down! All laksas are under $10 too!

    Nasi lemak was disappointing sambal was burnt(yes it came in black) and rice was full of large sediments of coconut instead of rice. Have some quality control please. Plus point was the chicken chop.
