Among the first migrants of the modern era were the Chinese, who brought their culinary techniques and fused them with local Malay ingredients, creating Peranakan or Nonya cuisine.

This is our 2nd visit to the restaurant in 2 weeks' time. It was our first time trying the Curry fish head and it's delicious! A bit more gravy would make the dish perfect! The salted fish skin as well as the pork rib king were still good. Unfortunately the chendol was still disappointing...the green jelly was frozen just like 2 weeks ago when we first tried it. There was also too little coconut cream but the waitress gave us more when we requested. No GST AND service charge however the service was good & prompt. We'll be back again.
Glad we made reservation ahead. The restaurant was full. The Assam Fish Head, Pork Rib, Hotplate Toufu & Salted egg fish skin & Salted egg Squid were all very delicious. Disappointing Chendol as the green jelly was still frozen. Service staff were in general efficient & friendly. We'll be back again.
Good pricing for the food. Service is great and friendly always attending to our needs particularly our little 22mth old toddler. Will visit again soon.
