It seems overrated online. Tried the chicken rice ball, nothing really great about it. Other places even nicer n better especially the chicken, the meat texture not tender at all.

The shop itself is crowded but the staff will guide you to seats, rice ball is a must try, you can order more side dishes as the rice balls are small, maybe 10 rice balls is equal to one plate of normal chicken rice.

Reasonable good but not fantastic. Chicken skin is smooth but the meat is a little chewy. Chicken rice balls are tasty. Because there were only 2 of us, we could not order other dishes. To be fair, they are quite organised and the queue moved...More

1. No idea on on opening times but if it's meal time, just go. 2. Parking.Probably best to leave the car at your hotel - assuming in Merlaka Central - and walk 3. If you're on foot, no need to worry about road closure.

They don't served pork. And there is no halal logo. That's all I can said.
