Comment: For the most part, the service staff was attentive despite how busy the place was. Topped up our table’s water three times throughout our meal with a smile. Kudos to the female manager  and this other male server. However, I really don’t like the fact how I found a spoonful of rice underneath my plate at the very beginning of the meal. Someone didn’t clean or check the dish thoroughly enough.  Although one of the waitress DID apologize and gave me a new plate immediately, it would have been nice if she told the manager and some form of non-verbal “apology”.




The Papaya & Mango Green Salad was a  pretty dish. BUT I absolutely didn’t taste any papaya in it. & very little mango in it (that was overly sour.)





The Roti Canai was pretty good. Loved the sauce with a hint of peanut butter in it.





Although a little lacking in flavour, the Pad Thai was pretty good. I still prefer Sala Thai’s Special Pad Thai a lot more though. (sn: I thought adding the Roti Canai’s sauce to it made the Pad Thai taste better)


1/4 Hainanese Chicken really wasn’t that great in terms of flavour. Something just didn’t taste right…flavour-wise. *no photos* But looks exactly the same as the ones found on urbanspoon.

And I definitely thought the Hainanese rice was just salt + oil + rice. Bleh. Traditional Hainanese rice is much better.


I enjoyed the Char Kuey Teow. Very Flavourful! & very “flavorSOME” as the Irish would have it.

Finally…The Pisang Goreng was quite good!


Tidbit: there’s a private party room on the 2nd floor for a maximum of 30 people. But I think the rooms still needs to be better furnished/ decorated.
