This was a surprisingly good find as we previously noted their sign from outside Wisma Merdeka (which is just next to the Hyatt) and since it was raining tonight, we opted for an indoor dry spot.

Cheap restaurant. No hassle. Serve my favourite chicken and rice. I'm not a food lover but the food is good enough. Serve a variety of other choice too.
