Foursquare Tips

  • Roti Canai is a must!
  • Advisory: pineapple fried rice served in actual pineapple. May cause giddiness, elation, and subsequent food coma.
  • Awesome sizzling beef and green curry here! Super authentic and delish!!
  • The Penang Pad Thai is outstanding! Spicier than most.
  • One of the few places you can find Hainanese chicken rice
  • #2 fried noodle dish, amazing!
  • You can't miss their roti canai !
  • Hell yeah: No wait at lunch during the week.
  • Everything is good!
  • order a refreshing glass of fresh coconut water - indian pancake and mee siam - soooo good!
  • Slow service. Didn't refill waters. Stood around playing on cellphones. Food was ok
  • Coconut drink! Sweet delicious fresh coconut slices
  • Curry chicken with rice is the best
  • Best meal in Boston ever! Get the chicken, rice, and mango shrimp. Can't go wrong. I might just move to Boston for this place. This means a lot since I'm from Los Angeles. But still go Lakers!
  • It's all about the mango chicken.
  • Janice , why are you always angry!!!! Some smile would have made a better service. It's not always about the speed , ya know?
  • Beef Rendang & Kang-Kung Belachan is some of my fav's
  • Roti Canai is hands down the best. Seafood with crispy noodle , Hainanese chicken and Beef Rendang are among my favorite. On hot summer day, cool it off with ABC - shaved ice with syrup.
  • Far cry from Malaysian-as-I-know-it. Menu has 75% straight up Chinese items. My Bahasa is pretty limited but trying to order atjar, soto ayam, krupuk, or sambal oelek was met with blank stares here
  • Meh. Rendang was a bit watery and weak. My friends' curries were similarly lacking in flavor. Perhaps they neuter it for a western audience; not up to the standard I experienced in Malaysia.
