    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!

    Teh Tarik just probably the best in Melbourne. Love the BBQ Pork and Chicken rice, and the soup as well. Bak Kut Teh, worth to die for!!! Can't find it anywhere in Melbourne <3

    For the vegetarians the Vegetarian Laksa is a great option here with a tasty mix of two types of noodles, eggplant, greens and the softest tofu you've ever tried all in a lovely laksa soup.

    They aren't messing about when they say they're the best Laksa in town. This is the best laksa I've had in Australia!

    Yummy noodles, cheap, cheerful and really quick Malaysian food. Order at the front, not at your table.

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

    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.

    Had a table outside, lots of flying lingering around my face. Nasi lemak nyonya is oily, from the sambal.

    Has gone back downhill. Not much fun watching your dining companion eat while you wait for a meal that arrives 20 mins later.

    Meh. Don't be fooled by the yummy food photos and "awards" they claim. Food is below average. Nothing special. Customer service aint that good either.

    If you're in a hurry avoid here as the food has to be ordered and cooked at the main restaurant 2 doors down, took a while to get to the little restaurant.

    They forgot our order & lied about it. They changed one of the dishes without telling us. Food arrived messy. If it wasn't for the food, I wouldn't ever come back.

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