This is a relatively new cafe style restaurant in the shopping complex on Coolibah Drive, Greenwood, pretty close to the Farmer Jack’s, so there is quite a large car park with plenty of room.
It’s a nice cosy cafe, clean and nicely decorated and although the menu has some pan-asian dishes it is predominantly Malaysian.
We chose our favourite starter – Loh Bak – pork, carrot, water chestnuts and spices wrapped in a bean curd skin and steamed then deep fried. It was crispy, meaty and delicious, nicely seasoned too and served with a sweet chilli dip.
For main course we chose to share char kway teow, beef malay curry and rice.
The char kway teow was delicious – nicely spiced as requested with a medium amount of chilli, chinese sausage, prawns, sliced fish balls – a really nice authentic version. The beef curry was thick and tasty with chunks of roast potato (a nice change to the regular boiled potato), and it had a spicy kick to it. The portions were a generous size and perfect for two to share and good value at $36 all in.
I would love to try a lot of the other dishes on the menu, in particular the fish head curry and the eggplant sambal.
In summary, great service, pleasant surroundings and tasty authentic food – I have a feeling this will be a regular cafe on my agenda.
