The menu is relatively simple, with the server belting out a number of usual crowd-favorites during the ordering process. The place is usually crowded during dinners, so it would be an excellent tip to scan the dishes on other tables if it tickles your fancy, and just let the server know!

It’s hard to resist their seafood dishes – curry prawns, and chili crab.

Stir-fried yellow noodles with clams is simplistic. Done with a pleasantly sweet taste of clams and mild zingy ginger kick, the noodle is served with accompanying spicy sambal.
