I go to this place on a weekly, if not bi-weekly basis, the food is always amazing! Personal favourites are Chicken Nasi Goreng with Omlette, and Chicken Char Kuay Teow. Price is reasonable, and speed of fulfilling the order is acceptable.

Melbourne boasts of a couple of top Malaysian restaurants offering the all time favourite - Nasi Lemak. NL house came recommended. I found the helpings large, but could have been better if there were more of the cucumbers, eggs, ikan bilis and sambal. Good taste...More

Stopped in for a seafood char kway teow for a quick bite and was not let down! Fresh ingredients, great flavours and the right amount of spice! It's hard not to be drawn to this place with the aromas that draw you in!

Glad we found this place, we wanted something cheap and cheerful that wasn't a panini. We had the standard Nasi Lemak and the crispy anchovies set off the coconut rice perfectly.

Tasted the best Chicken And Calamari Nasi Lemak over here with family. Fully recommended to anyone who missed hometown Nasi Lemak when travel to Melbourne.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
