Nice quiet place for drinks and food. I tried the laksa and glutinous rice. Laksa was good, not too rich. Glutinous rice with haebee hiam was delicious. Decor inviting being reminiscent of school days in class and tuckshop.

Nice grilled chicken chop, laksa and mid wings. If price can be lower a bit will definite attract more customers to frequent the place to dine.
