    It's an eat and go place; not a place to sit and chat. Service was so annoying , they basically pushed us out of the door.. Highly not recommended

    Some of the city's best Malaysian food in a slightly upscale but easygoing setting.

    Better off going to Nynoya or Penang - better food and much better service..!

    The roti canai is as good as everyone says! $7 is steep for it but it's still worth it.

    prawn Mee is decent, but lacking pork.

    Try the beef rendang with coconut rice! A malaysian iced coffee doesn't hurt either :)

    Malaysian staples Roti Canai and Nasi Lemak were delicious. And intense ginger candy comes with the check.

    Favorite Malaysian-Thai restaurant around union square. Roti canai is a must. Expand your palate and try the Malaysian curry served with squid, okra, eggplant and tomatoes in spicy yellow coconut milk

    The massaman curry is great and the chicken is some of the softest I've ever had.

    Probably one of the best Asians i've had in manhattan. Drunken noodles, steamed dumplings and the halibut were fantastic. A must try!

    Laura De Valencia · January 13, 2013

    Try the Yee Mee - Thin egg noodles with mushrooms, bean sprouts, eggs, carrots, snow peas and sesame oil with soy sauce. And beef.

    Mike Chau · September 23, 2012

    Great food, but avoid the fried ice cream dessert.

    Lex BZ · July 31, 2011
  • Brendan L.

    Food is fairly good. But man, what a rip off. $7 for Roti Canai, damn! And potions are soo small. Staff were great, but the place is over priced. Try Nyonya in Chinatown, so much better and authentic.

    Not a bad spot for a quick Thai lunch. If you like spice be sure to ask for it because they don't make there meals hot.

    Roti Canai is a must. Drunk man noodles were great but I like a little more spice

    Love their roti canai and coconut juice. Lunch special is great. Tried veggie tom yum soup. Veg spring rolls okay. Massaman curry was great. Get reservations if going for lunch.

    Nyonya vegetables were fresh & crispy but best with sriracha, $13 with white or brown rice. Red curry was medium spicy with tofu and eggplant, $13. Both recommended for a quick meal pre movies.

    Curry Laska was amazing! I love eating spicy but usually cannot handle it! But this was amazing and just the right amount of heat for me! Nice comfortable environment for dinner with old friends.
