    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

    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.

    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.

    The beef rendang was amazing. The sambal dishes also. The Roti Jala wasn't so good as the roti was more of a lattice and hard to handle. The tofu skewer also not a great choice as Deep fried tofu

    Free shrimp puffs when you check into foursquare as a newbie. You get only the appetizer or the dessert so choose wisely!
