So thrilled that we have a new favorite family restaurant. Order the lobster, it's wonderful. Everything we ordered was tasty. Bring one of everything, please! Don't be afraid of the color of the pandan creme brulee, it's to die for.
The food is seriously delicious and a nice change in flavours from the usual. The prices are very good given the quality. We had great service and can't wait to go back. Only two slight negatives: there were kids running around the restaurant, which wasn't the restaurant's fault, but made it seem more like a fast-food place. Also, the drinks, while extremely creative, are a bit on the sweet (read headachy) side. So we will just stick with beer next time. All in all, I think this is one of the best values in the area, with creative and delicious food that you can't get everywhere. Two thumbs up!
Have been going here for several times, and we had the best Server this night, Thalia. Great customer service, great attention. Helped make for one of the best experiences for my family and I at the restaurant. The food continued to not disappoint. We had a Claypot curry, Crab Rangoon, Satay, Chicken Rice and Sauteed Kai Lan. We all shared our dishes, and everyone was pleased with the choices. I like to visit this place everytime I visit Tustin. Very grateful that there is a Malaysian/Singapore restaurant, and of this calibre in the neighborhood.
Sat us down quick, was not too crowded for Mothers day. Service was good and professional, and food was served with good timing. Food is traditional Malaysian style.
The food was fantastic. The Curry Puffs were amazing. Our entire party loved their entrees. We had the Malyasian Kung Pao Chicken, Tangerine Chicken and Spicy Shrimp. They brought out a complimentary Chocolate Dessert for Mother's Day - delicious! The Mango Martini and Mamosas were made to perfection. We're already planning our next trip. Bravo!
The Server was great, the food flavor was fine but too much cooking oil was used for our taste, and the greeter didn't know anything about our OpenTable reservations. The best part of the lunch experience was that the restaurant wasn't busy, it was therefore quiet, and we weren't rushed which allow for a long uninterrupted visit with our guest.
We will have to give this restaurant another try.
Based on our first experience, we cannot assess fairly as it was not a good experience.
Staff needs training.
Very authentic Malaysian food (pretty similar to Singapore food)! Ask for the sambal chili if you want a spicy dipping sauce.
My first time having Malay. My Indian friend is a usual here so I agreed to let him order for both of us. We shared the Nasi Lemak (with chicken instead of beef) which wasn't labelled as a spicy dish, but was mildly spicy anyway and tasted similar to Thai dishes. We shared also the Char Kway Teow which was a spicy dish and my friend had forgotten to order it mild, but it was still tolerable. Overall, both dishes were decent. If the restaurant was down my street, I'd visit again to try other dishes, but it's a 35 minute drive away without traffic for an okay experience.
While Orange County has numerous Asian restaurants, Malaysian food is not common. This restaurant is a find. Noodle dishes are great. Curries are on the hot side. Surprisingly, the restaurant has a great crime brulee. Prices are quite reasonable. Will return.
