Went here for lunch with some friends. I had the laksa, which was good - nice and sour and well flavoured. My friend had the nasi goreng, which was even better and that's what I would recommend!

Having lived in Malaysia, I often crave real Malaysian food, and am often dissatisfied. Not this place, very authentic.

Amazing food, super authentic! Very young and loud atmosphere. Great selection of draft beers! Get the fried chicken pot stickers and spring rolls, amazing! They deliver. The food is great it just gets very loud sometimes. Very casual, very good.

We went to Laut for noddle soup. The soup was very good and we will return. Service was with a smile and the prices are very reasonable. Clean and comfortable place for lunch.

Stoped for a early dinner before a jazz concert. Great place, delicious food, very pleasant atmosphere. As a starter we had family satay. Hakka Crispy Chili and Massaman Delite was absolutely yummy.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
