The highlight was the puff! The durian flavor of the ice cream wasn't strong enough in my opinion. Overall, 9/10! For 3.9, this was super worth it!


A combo of breakfast and lunch. Evidently we couldn't wait for everything to arrive before we started eating. 2 chicken rice, 1 veggie, 1 bread + egg set, and 3 drinks costed 22$.


Standard $5 portion. The beef was very tender and the soup base was flavorful without being too salty.


Paid around 10$ per person for these dishes. Decently priced, and definitely worth the wait in line. Very authentic Thai fare.

The smallest portion was less than $4 I believe. The claypot doesn't add that much to the flavor, but the soup base itself was creamy and filled with umami!

The average here was $10 per person. Not the cleanest establishment but the food was delicious.

Waited half an hour in line for this. The total added up to around 18$. Chicken was cooked to perfect tenderness, but the superstar was definitely the rice.


Around 6-7$ for a decent sized portion. The sauce was creamy, decadent and delicious. The ribs were marinated well, with the right amount of spice and hints of curry leaf.

The steak (vaguely remember it being $8-9) was so tender and juicy I couldn't believe it was being served at a kopitiam! 2 side dishes- generous portions too!


Dishes average at around $7. Definitely somewhere you can go with a large group and order a lot!

Not the best roti-John (~5$) I've had, in fact the Al-amaan's next door does a better one. But their prata was great! Prata ranges from 1.5-3$.

Fast, efficient, no-frills and cheap! You queue up for the food and get served quickly. Pick your toppings from an array of meat and veg, and they top it with a gracious serving of curry gravy! Spent less than $5 for this giant dish.
