At once cheerful and authentic, this Southeast Asian restaurant offers diners a pleasant place to sit and talk for a while. Likewise, it remains true to its downtown spirit, set in a space that features dim lighting and exposed brick adorned with chalk drawings of orchids and water lilies. The personable staff keeps things rolling along on a timely basis. Portions are generous and the pricing is exceptionally wallet friendly, especially when ordering the lunch specials. Popular menu choices include the nasi lemak, a classic dish of chicken, sambal shrimp, pickled veggies and a chili anchovy peanut paste atop a mound of fluffy coconut rice. Another sure thing is the roti canai, a crispy Indian-style pancake with a rich curry dipping sauce.
