This restaurant feels like a home away from home and it is. A real family restaurant. The meals are fantastic, drinks are cold and they owners and staff make you feel totally welcome. We made this restaurant our home away from home on several nights.

I would say that this place is not cheap-eating restaurant. However, I have to praise the quality of the food. My nasi goreng was perfect. The egg was not served as a side but mixed with the rice and veggies. Vegetarian option is available.

I have been there a couple of times. Ordered the Nasi Lemak both times. I have had Nasi Lemak in many places, but this is the best I’ve had for sure. Excellent service, friendly staff. Also byo.
