My father, hubby and daughter enjoyed the authentic taste of the Assam Laksa. It was satisfying and truly delicious which is so different to those we have in KL

Asam Laksa ranks as one of my all time fav soup dishes. No wonder I have consumed a lot of it and many places in Malaysia. This clearly was among the best. It would have been awesome if they went easy on the floss and...More

The place was full of lunch time crowd and we could not find any empty seats for our large group. One of the Laksa stall employee managed to find us a table at the small hawker centre located opposite across the road. The Laksa soup...More

Not really sure if they have halal cert, but the dish does not contain any meat apart from fish as it is also served to vegetarians. You can try some halal delicacies at Gurney Drive area.
