About Us

When the weather is decent, we have seating set up like a street food market on a first come first serve basis outside on the pavement. No bookings are taken and there is no table service. Orders have to be placed and collected at the counter  and we ask that you help us by clearing up after yourself. We have no plans to reopen for in-house dining until physical distancing requirements have lifted.

You can find our chilled laksa at home sets, laksa pastes and a wide variety of sauces for sale with nationwide delivery on Pezu.
