Very nice selection of lunch dishes. Service maybe a bit slow but very friendly. The kuih there is brilliant. Also other sweets. And sitting outside as well as inside is pleasant. Range of price is good. Only on weekends a bit too full for my liking.

Restaurant Santai – Good Local Food, Nice Service, Nice Price Had lunch here with some friends. It was a weekend and it was rather crowded. The staff was courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. Lunch order was taken in record time and the as ‘good as mum would have cooked it’ food arrived in record time too. Santai serves mainly Malay dishes... More

Good food, good service and value for money. Best food are served for breakfast during weekends and their wonderful and tasty kuih-muih are on sale every afternoon from 3 pm onward except on weekend. Must try are their nasi lemak with daging masak hitam and their kuih udang. The laksa johor is also one of the best in KL.

For the price I have paid, I was expecting a bigger portion but I was a bit disappointed in the end. Great taste, but just too expensive for my expectation. I would rather go to Haji Shahrin for their noodle dishes.

Nice authentic Malaysian food, opened all day long. Dishes (a whole repotoire) with rice or noodles are tasty and resonably priced. Most of the time the place is full (an indicator of how good is their food). Parking can be a problem especially at peak hours. Recommended.

The food is generally good here and comes relatively quickly. Portions are enough and reasonably priced. Plenty of staff on hand to take orders. Parking is difficult during offices and day time hours. Not fantastic but and ok place to eat.

Food is good, the cream puff is really really good. It cost only 50 cent each. Downside is, this place is always full.
