As usual the food here is very tasty. Beef Randang is a must. My only complaint is that they always give me too much!! Staff are very polite and friendly and the place is kept clean and tidy. I'll be back very soon 😊

Don't know what the hype is about this place, everything was red or brown and tasted the same. Very disappointing
