Tasty food at fair prices! We had a group booking of 10ppl where we provided them with a pre-order list, the food came out quickly and the food portions generous served by their attentive & friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this venue for groups and individual seatings.

I almost choked on a bone! The food was minimal and tasteless. And that's the way it goes.

The meal was great and the food was authenic malaysian cuisine. Some less obvious options on the menu was would really suit people looking for a range of malaysian food. There were a few twists on malaysian tastes but overall a good, authenic experience

Quite happy to find out that there is a Malaysian restaurant around the Docklands area. Missus and I visited the joint for dinner. The service was good as the waiter was attentive and friendly. Also, I like the lay back ambience. The food was unique and nice. We ordered roti and lobak as a starter. Then, the black chicken stew and beef rendang as main. We enjoyed it. In short, we have a good dining experience.
