This is certainly a busy little restaurant. As mentioned in another review the menu was quite confusing. But that's ok. Gado-gado salad, curry chicken with roti Balachan vegetables, fish paste in banana Leaf, Singapore laksa and medicinal spare rib soup. I am using description for...More

The food is amazing. Good variety, great quality. Very good vegetarian choices. Try the roti canai. The vegetable curry was superb. They have a western food section of the menu too (although we didn't try it). Staff were friendly, accommodating and efficient. Venue has a...More

Really good Nasi Lemuk (my passion). Coconut rice was tasty and loose, the chicken maybe fried a lite too long but still good and a soft fried egg topped it off nicely. Gado-Gado was a fresh welcome change. My new lunch spot.

This restaurant (within the Hotel Jen) is very close to one of the exits of Hong Kong University MRT station. I would say the food is authentic, and servings generous, but slightly on the expensive side. Although many of the dishes are street food items...More

If you savor the spicy richness of laksa, the pungent flavor of nasi goreng and subtle sweetness of pandan, the taste, presentation and atmosphere is authentically Malay. Check out the lunch menu particularly for good value.

I always had a wonderful time enjoying the Malaysian food in this restaurant. The only downside was there were only a few staff to serve the customers thus, we have to raise our hands for awhile before someone noticed us.

I love char kuey tiaw, curry laksa, satay, and durian pudding. Got the chance to try out Popiah or ‘unfried spring roll’ - its fillings are Mexican turnips (blanched), carrots, boiled prawns, and other vege condiments with a couple types of sauce like hoi sin...More

I had the satay and the rending, both of which tasted great, but my evening was spoiled by the very very slow service. I waited almost half an hour for someone to take my order, the starter came within about 10 minutes, which was fine,...More

Menu was very misleading, not very well planned. Food was good but abit expensive. Take the rendang.

We tried the set lunch menu and ordered fish curry, fried pork rice and the Laksa as main courses. The food was ok but the service was slow. For set lunch at $150 per head, it is not worth trying.
