Went there for breakfast. There was NOT a huge variety of food available. Or probably because the waiter does not know how to service us. I guess it was both. The nasi lemak was Not good - not fluffy and is not lemak. I expected something better especially form a stall that has won so many awards. Even if this... More

There are not much choices of food in this restaurant. The taste are average. Especially the drinks are bland. Price are quite expensive. Al i can say is that everything is average here.

I was looking forward to trying the chicken rice here since everyone said it was nice. A bit disappointed since i felt the food was slightly salty and in terms of taste it was mediocre. Not worth the hype.

The food taste is at average par of the actual Asian food that usually served however the fish soup is one of the menu that my parent really love about this place, apart of their Kak Nong's ABC Special as dessert. The price is affordable and the food portion is outstandingly huge. Tips and Tricks 1. The male waiter is... More

We patronised this restaurant for the Malay dishes such as soto, laksa and gado-gado. The local 'kuih muih' is great for a quick bite. There are plenty of parking at the back and ATM machine for convenient a few doors away.

We popped in here for dinner during our short stay in KK as we wanted to eat somewhere more authentic. Our waitress was brilliantly helpful in suggesting meals for us and we had the most sublime salted egg yolk prawns at her recommendation. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was friendly and charming and chatty (her English... More

This is a classic favourite with KK locals. They've been open for many years and won the Sabah Tourism "best Kopitiam" restaurant twice now. But they've just moved their restaurant into downtown and should now be included in the visitor listings. It's absolutely one of the best places to eat in KK.
