Quality cuisine is made with the heart here, and served with a smile - for a very reasonable price (the lunch set is 11 MYR). You have to try the smoked banana brownie, a delicious dérivé of this classic, with... More

After the textile museum, we accidentally found this place and ordered nasi lemak and Rendang. It was the best nasi lemak that i have tried ever. And it was cozy and beautiful restaurant.

Delicious local Malaysian fare by Chef Adu. With a little twist. Hidden inside the Textile Museum in Dataran.

We didn't know about this true gem with super tasty Malaysian food as we ended up there by accident. It is a relaxing, eclectic place that mixes antique pieces with some modern details. The menue is simple but thoughtfully put together by chef Adu Amran to offer the diners the taste of Malaysia. We had laksa johor and tortilla roti... More
