I have been told that the Sunnybank outlet is by far the best, but that means travelling quite a fair bit for someone who knows zilch about the public transport system. Left with their Charlotte Street and their Queen Street outlets. I am again told that the Queen Street outlet should be avoided too which means the Charlotte Street outlet stands as the most viable option.
Be prepared for long queues and a terribly noisy atmosphere, almost as if i had just stepped back to any busy coffee shop in Malaysia with a working aircon and a better decor.
We wanted a combo of Char Siew and Siew Yuk (BBQ pork and Roasted Pork) but after looking a very sad plate of Char Siew coming out from the kitchen, Siew Yuk it was. After failing miserably on so many counts, we finally had a decent Siew Yuk to rejoice with. Pricey though for AUD 12.50 but an item that i wouldn't mind ordering.
Not a terribly good choice was their laksa. Dull with no flavour, it required quite a bit of belachan from the counter to spice it up. The sides of blanched brinjal and frozen seafood wasn't very exciting either. Going to avoid this the next time we come here.
It is after one of these meals that i think back to how fortunate some people are in Kuala Lumpur where there are so many curry laksas to be had for under RM5 but choose to eat in a shopping centre instead for closer to RM15 while i am stuck with a AUD 10 crap laksa.
Address and contact details:
Verdict: Between 3 stars to 4 stars, but very promising from our plate of roasted pork rice.
