Nice quick lunch, you choose what you want to eat vegetables and meats. And choose how you want chef to cook, completely rice and noodles.

The place is a little bit hard to find for tourists. It's at the end of a small lane right next to a car park. But it's idea is very interesting as all the food is charged by the weight of ingredients you pick up. The vegetables are fresh and they have a great variety of meat. You will see... More

It is a great plqace with fresh meat and veges to choose from to add in your bowl, you pick a sauce (there are a large selection) and then give to chef and he cooks for you. The price goes by weight, so as you fill up your bowl you can check the weight and get the price.

There is a minimum weight 350g for dinner $22.50 (unsure about lunch), note you pay extra for anything heavier than the minimum, and it can get price pretty quickly. Choose the vegetables, meats (camel, chicken,... More
