This was the first meal eaten during a long weekend in Manchester. It was also the best meal that we ate. The service was quick and the food was good. Will be returning.

On the plus side:
- the food is excellent
- the waiters are pleasant and efficient
- it’s next door to the Frog & Bucket if you want to make it a full night out
On the downside:
- the tables are sticky
- the furniture is falling apart and the carpet (!) is very old

Food was fantastic. Even though it was roasting hot outside I amazed the waitress ( who was great) that I wanted a Prawn Tom Yam soup. I mean the Thais have it and it's a steamy hot Country so why not?
Followed by a Beef Rendang and some Roti's. Both were wonderful.

Can't rate the restaurant highly enough and will be going back as soon as. Only downside was the location. Can't people have an evening out without endless beggars and people looking for a brawl ruining the night?

We love the food here. All excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They do dishes you can’t find anywhere else in Manchester - and I have searched.

The food was so delicious.. full of flavour. The customer service was brilliant.. we ordered vegetarian dumplings and they ended up having prawns in them.. they straight away asked if we wanted to replace it with something else and took it off our bill with an apology.

Despite booking a table for 19:30, we didn't get seated until 19:50. Then there was a long wait until we actually received menus.

After that, everything was good. The food was excellent and good value.

Unfortunately, the restaurant then marked us as a no-show, so we received an email from OpenTable asking what had happened...

Whilst promoted as a Malaysian Restaurant some of the dishes on the menu are Thai. However, the food is tasty and prices are reasonable. Service was prompt and the staff were very pleasant. I would recommend it.

Fantastic food, only let down was the service. Waiter in a rush to get our order; given a menu that wasn't relevant to the day we ate; had to chase a missing order; asked by waiter to leave before 6.30, he should have given the option to move tables. That said, I would hope we just caught an off night.

As I stated to the hostess, I have visited Singapore and Malaysia and though I would not expected the same quality of food overall it was disappointing. My son’s soup was acidic and for a prawn type soup it lacked the central ingredient and that is prawns. The starters were above average and my son’s main course was good. Overall it was just an above average dining experience and taste from this Malaysian restaurant was not authentic.
