    The Chili Crab was the lowest level of heaven. Dip the bread in the sauce. Nasi Lemak had lots of exploding flavours too.

    This laid back and fun spot has an environment and menu inspired by Malaysian street food. Something so unique, it can only be found in the city that never sleeps!

    Good selection if spicy drinks that compliment the food well. Try the michelada or the chupacabra.

    In the West Village. Don't miss the Pork Belly & Pickled Watermelon Salad. The Skate is pretty fantastic too. -Laurine Wickett, Top Chef

    This Choice Eats attendee brought Fatty Devils (Deviled Eggs) to the event and handed them all out before the night was over! Delicious!

    As eclectic as it gets. I liked but felt too greasy for some reason.

    And, if you don't want the mess of the crab, you can just order a side of toast & the chili crab sauce!

    The main dish was so spicy I couldn't eat it. Pork buns were actually really good but coupled with a pushy waiter - I wouldn't come back.

    The worst Malaysian/Chinese food I have had the misfortune to eat. Waited years to try this place - the was no singular good or authentic taste to any of the dishes. The rendang was sweet. Go figure!

    Wear long pants if you're going to sit outside in the summer; this is a mosquito alert.

    The pork belly sliders and chicken rice are ridiculous. Also, the bread and sauce that accompany the signature crab dish can be ordered as a side. Don't miss out on any of this!

    The old fashioned here is the later version, muddled fruit and sugar with bitters, rye and soda. FYI

    The sliders were ok. The watermelon and crispy pork was awful. Seriously. The pork was only fat, lukewarm fat, accompanied by four cubes of watermelon. The waitress recommended this to us.

    If the weather is nice, sit outside. This is really exquisite Southeast Asian seafood. The dining room music is way too loud, alas.
