...& lots more too! Celebrating 39 years delivery of excellent Malaysian cooking... It's still always worth the battle to find a table, grab a bowl or plate of delicious home-style food & slurp your heart out!!! Hainanese Chicken Rice an unwise choice this time (...More

This place is a nice surprise. I was walking by on the way to a meeting and needed to use a bathroom. I asked. The lady waved me into the back. The place was clean. I took a seat at the front of the restaurant...More

Was there for lunch on a Saturday, and the place was busy. The weekend special was Har Mee, which was popular as it was sold out soon after I got there, but I was after the Chicken Laksa. It had good flavour, was not watery,...More

Probably the best Laksa in the Sydney CBD. The combination hor fun is also good. During the week this place gets busy. Think queues out the door busy. Service is fast and sharing tables is expected.

You can tell by the lunchtime crowd that this is a favourite among many. Laksa is their most popular dish but they also have daily specials. Tried the Nasi Lemak - it did not fail expectations. Taste was authentic and a delight in all senses....More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
