    Was better and cheaper than a Malaysian supper club I went to so I guess that makes it OK

    The laksa is beautifully presented but terribly disappointing. The soup is half decent, but it's a mystery why there are mint leaves included. They added nothing except a strange aftertaste.

    Authentic Malaysian food . Service is so so but at least you get some good value. Nasi Lemak and Penang Prawn are delighted, by London's standard.

    If you're a fan of morning glory (behave!) be prepared to pay the price! My friends adored the roti here and the chicken dishes are big and filling. Food comes out as its ready.

    If you're craving noodles, do not order the Satay Bee Hoon ("special of the week"). It's just a plate of vermicelli noodles swimming in sweet satay sauce with hardly any seafood in it.

    I'd avoid the nasi goreng due to the blandness taste of the rice..chicken satay and keropok was ok I guess

    Upstairs and downstairs seating. Gets busy. Go the roti canai and tangy Assam fish curry = yum in your tum. Beware - the soya milk is freshly made so has a strong bean taste which some may not like.

    This place was packed. The portions are very generous. I had the chili crab and it was MASSIVE! Very tasty and really messy. Don't order it if you're having a business meeting or are on a date ;)

    The chicken rendang is really nice, and a decent portion. The nasi lemak though, not so much. Reminds me of Madam Kwan's with less taste and less sauce. Overall pretty good place though.

    Good food at a reasonable price! I'm no expert on Malay cuisine, but was nice and spicy (not too hot, just flavoured well) well presented plate. Very quick service, they are casual, not rude.
