Service
 
"Exceptional" feasts and a "big-party" atmosphere help define this "vibrant" tropical-themed Malaysian BYO in Chinatown; it’s too "loud” for some, but for many "fast service" , "decent" prices and "lots of options" win out – and keep in mind it's "open until late."

Food was good, but the receipt came with the tip added (handwritten) - no option to tip more or less. Pineapple fried rice came in a half cut pineapple (should try for the experience). Other than the tip issue I liked this place.

This place literally sucks. Service was horrible and I felt incredibly awkward the entire time. I think I would have been better off eating at Burger King. The “noodles” tasted like slimy cardboard, and the “egg rolls” were so mushy it felt like I was biting into some kind of weird vegetarian mushroom. I will NEVER go back here. Ever. Place blows. Side note: I just tried to pay and the waitress couldn’t even figure out basic math. OH YEAH, they include their own tip within the bill. The fact that they think they deserve 20% is absurd.

Loved the ambiance. Good food. Especially love the Beef Rendang. Chicken Satay is great too. Near Reading Terminal Market, China Town and Jefferson station. Staff is very friendly. It wasnt too crowded on a Saturday noon. The restaurant can accommodate larger groups as well.
