It felt like going back to grandparent’s home in the kampung, decorated with old 80’s rustic interior design. Such a nice & cozy place to lepak with family & friends.
The signature dish here is the Chicken Rice, Mee Goreng, Nasi Butter Milk Chicken. They have western dishes as well, but we feel that the local cuisine here is better.
