Great dining. Fresh ingredients and the salad ulam raja was so fresh. Ambience is nice and kids love it so much. Deserts sold was superb and we enjoy our meal. Good to have small function or celebrating anniversary or throw a birthday celebration.

I wonder if TripAdvisor review can still be trusted today? Had a lunch meal there recently, totally disappointed as this is shown as #1 in Kulim. Food was average at most (high cost), mushroom soup tasted just like black pepper soup. Their cakes cost more...than Secret Recipe's but taste worse than pasar malam cakes. We couldn't finished it! Too dry and need water to gulp it down. Place is hot during lunch time and only have standing fan around. If you insist to come, try to visit during dinner. No guarantees about the mosquitoes tho. The most disgusting thing is that you'll have lots of flies around, sharing food and drinks with you, no matter how hard you tried to get them off. Luckily, no food poisoning after the meal. My first and last time here, definitely!More

A must try place in Kulim. Finding this place is a bit tricky as it was located inside kampung/housing area outside town. The place itself is a BnB (Bed and Breakfast) but we went there for late lunch. We tried the grilled lamb & chocolate...milkshakes and they were pretty good, compared to any other restaurant that served western food in Kulim. I do also applaud the friendly waitress there (might also be the owner I think) that make you feel welcomed. Limited choice for menus but at affordable & reasonable prices.More

Lime milkshake is good as well as their homemade pesto pasta (cant really remember the name). Worth for visit anyway.

Deep in a kampong (village), there started a home business with 5stars western food (Kulim standard). The food is delicious with local Malay fusion. Go for the lime cheesecake... we had 2 of them...

Set in a village style environment, this place offers the peace and tranquility that not many places have these days... Our first thought would be a typical malay food serving restaurant, but be prepared to be amazed when the menu is brought to you by...its owner. Fluent English speaking Malay lady who serves a mixture of "Mat Saleh" dishes blended with some local "Ulams". While you dine among fruit trees, there are also homestay rooms that you can book for the night.. Simply amazing....More
