    Spanning close to 30 years, this comfy restaurant has been winning everyone over with their luscious spread of Malay delicacies under roof, with Western and Thai cuisine towing along. Not to be missed is their Fish Assam Pedas platter, Mee Bandung, Ayam Masak Merah, Beef Rendang and if you’re in with a gargantuan appetite, their Nasi Ambeng just ticks all boxes for a feast of flavours. A mound of steamed rice is swathed with chicken or beef rendang, sambal prawns petai, salted fish, fried calamari, serunding kelapa (spicy grated coconut), a dollop of mee siam and zesty sambal belacan. The best way to devour this drool-inducing platter is to have a little of everything.
