We would recommend their Assam Laksa, cooked using thick glass noodles in a spicy and sour flavourful broth, so delicious that one bowl won’t be enough to satisfy your craving.

Highly recommended is their Mee Sua which is served in a savoury and flavourful broth. Other than that, try their pork chop which is tender and meaty, smothered in a generous helping of delicious gravy.
If you want to pair your meal with a side, order their oyster omelette which is packed with juicy oysters, the ultimate comfort food for all.
