MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If there were ever a moment to order dessert first, it might be now. Flaky, crispy roti canai served with a delicate pandan coconut cream offers a faithful Asian twist on the classic French Toast. It's the kind of cross-cultural deliciousness you can expect from this Malaysian kitchen team, which takes its culinary cues from India and China.

To that end, both noodles and rice form the heart of this menu. Char kway teow features seared flat rice strands tossed with shrimp, Chinese sausage, and bean sprouts; and hearty pork vindaloo boasts layer upon layer of just the right spice, heat, and acid. Fried chicken arrives doused in a yellow curry flecked with curry leaves. Yes, you should share everything, but no, you cannot nap on those turquoise couches after.
