Response from Jenny K | Reviewed this property |
This has been answered before. No halal certification for the restaurant but they buy from a supermarket that Muslims buy from. Their head chef is Muslim. No pork or alcohol is served.

They have a small range of savoury Malay food (nasi lemak, Mee Siam, laksa) + lots of nyonya dessert specialities / Kueh. From memory, the food is not expensive but not super cheap.
