Penang Assam laksa so tasty, well balanced sour tamarind and cheap for a bowl of noodles! Must have the nutmeg juice too. Helpful & cute young boss!

The service was satisfactory, and the location is good. But I'd just barely call this a restaurant. It seemed that they served Laksa and fresh juices, period. It was my first Laksa so I don't have much to compare it to, but it didn't look...More
