    I'd go back one more time. Maybe.

    Go for the wonderfully-fatty pork-belly pork buns, into which you stuff pickled veggies/cilantro. AMAZING, decadent, to be savored. By the time we got to the porkbelly salad (we wanted to dig into the hot food first), the pork was hard on the edges – I don’t know why – and I didn’t like the pickled watermelon, whch was funny b/c I’d been waiting to try that one dish for over a year. Our waitress waited way too long to bring the dipping toast that I ordered halfway through our mussels, so at that point the leftover broth was cooled and slightly congealed. Based on the slightly-overpriced prices (and $3 for plain rice on the side!?) that was really lame.

    Terrible Food in a Hipster Setting

    Wow, the dishes were definitely not worth the price. Overspiced and just way too much sauce, this little restaurant doesn't do a good of preparing food that can otherwise be had for a quarter of the cost at China Town for much better quality.

    Good food, small portions

    The place is small, and the portions are relatively small considering the prices, but the food is good, and the small size of the place gives it atmosphere. The tiny kitchen makes you wait a little for food, but it's well worth it. If you like spicy food, try this place.

    Great Food Served in Chaos

    I loved the food. The pork buns, sliders and fatty duck were all exceptional. That being said, it was a long wait to be seated, with slow, random and frustrating service.

    no bang for your buck

    the food was very hardly even average. the prices were also incredibly expensive- i know its the west village, but if its gonna be so pricey, at least make a nicer atmosphere. the service was good- but by no means makes it a good restaurant.

    Delicious and Authentic

    Nasi Lamak is very authentic but a bit pricy for $16. It is even hard to get autthentic Nasi Lamak in Chinatown so i would pay $16 at Fatty crab. Dungeoness crab is delicious , along with the thick crispy buttered loaf bread they serve you. i am asian so i know what i am eating. i would go there again. i do feel it is pricy. it a shame they don't have this in chinatown so i can get it for cheaper. i do like the atmosphere, it is small and cramped so don't go there during meal times because they only have few tables.

    Finally got to try this place after anticipating it since its illustrious opening. The wait service is very attentive and friendly, and I like the cozy atmosphere. But, I didn't care for the food. Weird tastes and salty salty. Everything was covered in fish flakes. The pork bun was good and a nice play on roast pork buns of chinatown but nothing else really struck my or my dining companions' fancy. Perhaps my problem is a lack of knowledge of Malaysian cuisine, but there are probably Malaysian restaurants down in Chinatown that are more authentic and better priced than this place.
