    Food was good. Pork knuckle came with sauerkraut, salad, and "dumplings". Brown sauce and the memorable apple sauce😂 service was superb, which includes the valet. Def coming back for more 😍

    It's well known for the pork dishes. Apparently their Spanish whole roasted baby lamb leg is awesome too!! Juicy meat with minimal "lamb smell". Fantastic!

    Jockey service available - RM10. Nearby radius hotel is RM4 for first hour and RM 2.50 for subsequent hours. If you're staying for more than 3 hours - jockey service is worth it.
