This is still the best nasi lemak I've ever tasted! I always have the luncheon meat, chicken wing, beans and eggplant. Do come early as there is always a long queue. I noticed though that the serving size is smaller than before but the quality is still consistent. I will always visit this place when I come to Singapore for... More

My meal came up to $10. Expensive for nasi lemak that usually costs $1.50- $2 Their ingredients galore as you point to indicate your preference. But beware. The more you point, the more your plate is filled... the more you gonna pay. Steer clear from meats if you want to keep the price low. Go for veggie and eggs. And... More

Wonder why many people still queue up just to have Nasi lemak. Their chilli sambal is not fresh is dry. The Nasi Lemak is ok however when order just few items it can cost almost $10 for a plate. The rice is so little and have to ask for extra and charge additional price. You can get the same items... More

the best nasi lemak in Singapore, Period!!! their sambal balacan, the ikan bilis, the chicken wing and the vegetable curry are highly recommended to accompany the fragrant and unending aroma of the coconut rice. YOU MUST VISIT!!!

The best nasi lemak I've had so far. Must try their fried chicken wings, super crunchy batter and super juicy inside.

Food and their coconut rice are quite consistently well done. With the demand, they charge more and give lesser portions. If u can accept that, u will enjoy eating here. I usually pick their chicken wing, fried egg, luncheon meat and long beans with extra chilli.

The restaurant is now larger but the portions so much smaller (you need to ask even for more sambal and cucumbers).. and prices have nearly doubled. I would not go out of my way to eat here.. so many better nasi lemak options.

Nasi lemak and their dishes are nice but they give small portions, even for chilli and cucumbers. U may have to order double portion for food u like, and keep requesting for chilli and cucumbers.

The nearest MRT is Dakota Station (Circle Line), take Old Airport Road/ Jalan Satu Exit; at the bus stop take bus service 31 and alight at the 2nd or 3rd bus stop and... More
