    I went there last night, and was disappointed. We went straight to entrees, my friend had the fish it was cold. I had the duck, I took literally two bites. The food was subpar. We paid $40 for food we didn't even eat. . The service however, was great.

    Try the tea sandwiches

    For those who appreciate pork fat (in opposition to the review below), you MUST try the tea sandwiches. thinly sliced pork belly with a delicate layer of spicy spread and cilantro sandwiched between slices of white bread. it just melts in your mouth and shoots directly to your pleasure center. : ) some dishes are hit or miss, but the hits are just so good! try it out - and there are plenty of dishes sans fat for those who prefer it that way.

    Food lives up to fatty name

    Cool causal setting but the food was sub-par, the pork in our fried pork and pickled watermelon salad were cubes of fat. Guess we should have expected that based on the name.

    Bold flavors in a casual hipster setting

    Overall the food was terrific; bold unique flavors abounded in great combinations. The chef knows what he is doing; it may not be straightforward Malaysian food, but it's his own strong take on it with unique, delicious results for the most part. The watermelon pickle/pork salad is a must-try (and I don't even like watermelon), and the green mango starter is a sour fiend's dream. The chicken in claypot was weaker (soothing like chicken soup but overall bland), and the short ribs were amazing, tender and loaded with flavors. The loud, cramped space is nonetheless full of energy and a fun casual hipster vibe, and the prices were great. Service was efficient and quick. If you go relatively early there is no wait. This place lives up to the hype.

    Reviewed by a Malaysian in NY

    Eh, could have been so much better in so many ways! First off, it was completely cramped. We felt like we were sharing a meal with the people on tables either side of us. I guess you could call it a very "friendly" experience, but it was a little too close for comfort. I was in on my neighbors' conversations and vice versa. Secondly - service: The waiter forgot one of our orders (honest mistake, could've been any waiter, any restaurant), then when he was asked about it later, he said it's a dish that takes a long time to prepare, and that he would check it out for us. He never came back to us with the answer. I know that dish from back home, and it does not take 35 mins to prepare. As for attitude, when my friend asked if she could order a cocktail before dinner she got "You could try, but I don't think you'll get one!" as the reply. I was embarrassed, as it was my idea to come to this place. A simple "Sorry, we only serve beer and wine here" would have sufficed. Food: Oh boy, where do I start? Some of the dishes were ok, I guess. Nothing really made a huge impression on me. For really good Malaysian fare, I would head down to Chinatown, or hit Laksa House on Ave U in Brooklyn!!

    Great Food + Cheap Bill

    Had been hearing about this place and decided to try it out. The food was amazing! We got there early (7pm) and didn't experience a wait. Although it started getting crowded at 7:30pm. We were constantly showered with attention by the waitstaff. Ordered a few PBR's for $3 a can and had the fatty duck, an amazing rice dish and the braised short ribs (the meat fell right off the bone). I shared these three dishes and was pleasantly full afterwards. Our bill came to $58 which was well worth the food and the entire experience for my NY buck. I definitely recommend it but get there early.
