Tips

  • One of my regular spots! The Thai Fried Rice and the Massaman Curry are both fantastic.
  • When it's cold outside, ask for the warm Tamarind cider. It warms you up nicely.
  • There's some solid Malaysian dishes like laksa, but also some good hard-to-find specialties like candied squid and maggi mee.
  • Besides some traditional dishes like hainanese chicken, everything is great. Roti canai, chilli fried chicken, noodle dishes and soups too.
  • Amazing roti - so fluffy! MUST order!
  • A very delicious Malaysian restaurant in a very cool area, I highly recommend the Mee Goreng fried noodles.
  • Rendang was really good!!!
  • Best Malaysian restaurant in NY. Try any Laksa soup, they are amazing
  • Crispy wings
  • Delicious Thai Iced Tea!
  • Delicious Thai iced tea
  • Malaysian tea was on point
  • Great lunch specials. Loved my broth, chicken and noodles with side salad for only $10
  • Calamari , soft shell crab, randang beef, basil prawn, mee goreng
  • Calamari, soft shell crab,
  • Amazing curry, among pretty much everything else. The staff is amazing and welcoming, the prices are good and the drinks are good too.
  • Teh tarik (Malaysian milk tea) here is legit. Many will call this heresy but I think their char kuey teow is an ok approximation of the original, even though it uses chicken instead of pork broth/fat.
  • If you sit at the bar you can get a free sampler of the chips :) yumm
  • Try the soft shell crab in massaman curry - they can make it spicy and it comes in a plentiful bowl, fast service !
  • Mango Cosmo !! Mango makes you tango!
