WHY GO

Come here for a serene, un­der­stated cocoon where pa­trons can es­cape briefly from life’s daily bus­tle and linger over a quiet lunch or leisurely din­ner of Malay favourites.

TATLER TIPS

Clas­sic Malay dishes with con­tem­po­rary tweaks take pride of place here. The menu runs the gamut from ap­pe­tis­ers such as satay pun­cak to familiar sta­ples such as ren­dang.

• The ap­pe­tiser of cu­cur 39 or crispy king prawn frit­ters hits the spot with its bal­anced crisp and soft tex­tures. Served with tangy peanut sauce and gar­lic chilli dip, the dish’s mod­ern pre­sen­ta­tion makes it a vis­ual de­light.

• No­table mains worth sampling in­clude ayam golek per­chik, East Coast-style grilled chicken basted with an aro­matic, creamy-rich blend of co­conut milk, ground chillies, herbs and spices.
