If you are nasi kandar fans who love the traditional nasi kandar with mixed curries, then you would not like it. Dissapointed with their mixed curries. The guy does not know to mix the curry well. However the dishes are cooked well enough. So if you are not a fan of mixed curries, then this place will be perfect as... More

Was staying close by to here so wandered up, without paying attention to the order in one shop, sit in another and was finally rescued by one of the waiters as the payment clerk at the door had been snowed under by loads of exiting families. I went there about 6.30pm and it was a good time as the families... More

For those not in the know : Nasi kandar is a dish of rice served with variety of curries and side dishes. Located at Campbell Street, this restaurant is one of... More

I ate Nasi Briyani with meat, the N.Briyani taste ok for me not so good but still acceptable, big portion I couldn't finished it. You need to come early and avoid to come during lunch hour. The restaurant had 2 shops and its just nearby, you need to order /choose your food first by queue up and to eat it... More

Best place to get the "Murtabak", i like it with the chicken. If you're just around the place then why not try the 100 years old recipe?

It was 26th Dec when we went to this restaurant. We had to queue up for over 30mins to get inside the restaurant. Once we were inside everything went smooth. Service was fast & food was good. I will gladly go there again.

Was looking at others on how they order. First, we went to the left restaurant, that's where we pick the food that we want (the service there I feel a bit cheecky). You gotta think what you want to order before reaching the serving table, since they are serving it rather impatiently. After getting food on a plate that we... More

We had Murtabak, the minced mutton and curry-spiced frittata, wrapped in a roti dough and fried, served with pickeld shallots and curry sauces. It was really nice! It was a stop as part of our food tour. Curries served were delicious-especially the beef.
