Location: Dining Lane, Sylvia Park shopping centre
Price: $$ (average)
Style: Malaysian cuisine
Comments: Mum and I went here not having the greatest of expectations, based on reading previous reviews. Diners had complained about portion sizes and the prices being too high. However, we are both keen on Asian food so couldn’t resist trying out a new eatery in Auckland.
We were both blown away by the décor and simple tables which made us feel like we were in Asia. You order at the counter and take away a number, then your food is brought out to you. We ordered the Chicken and Mushroom Sui Mai ($10), which were dumplings, to start. (see above)
Then we each ordered the laksa with chicken and prawns ($18, with the additional extra for the chicken and prawns) for the main.
We were not disappointed. The flavours in the laksa were divine. It was creamy, full of coconut and absolutely delicious. The dumplings were light in texture and also delicious.
In short, we were very impressed with the taste and style of this new restaurant. We will be back.
