    Can’t vouch for the authenticity but everything was DELICIOUS! Very affordable. Food came out super fast. All servers here were very softly spoken and gentle. Highly recommend!

    Located in Alhambra, California is the unique Borneo Kalimantan Cuisine Restaurant. It is near E Main Street and N Garfield Ave with free covered parking only a block away. The restaurant is humble but quaintly furnished with brightly colored door motifs and interesting knick-knacks depicting the Indonesian lifestyle. The restaurant is small but very clean and the staff make you feel immediately welcomed. As we reviewed the menu, we discovered that many of the food items look very familiar to other Asian dishes; however, after trying them, it was enjoyable to discover that their flavor profile are very different from those other dishes. We started off with the “Es Cendol” dessert drink and “The Tarik” iced milk tea with grass jelly. Both drinks were sweet and refreshing. Next, we tried the Roti Prata, which is advertised as a pan-grilled pancake with a Borneo inspired dipping sauce. The dipping sauce is similar to yellow curry but with a nice kick to it. The Roti Prata is light and flaky. We also ordered the Nasi Rendang. This is a savory beef dish where the beef has been braised in coconut milk, herbs and spices until it turns a rich dark brown loaded with flavor. This dish is served with tofu, boiled egg, coconut rice, and other tasty side items. Additionally, we tried the Kwe Tiau Goreng Borneo, a very popular fried flat noodle dish. All of the food that we tried was a unique and satisfying experience. This is an excellent place to try a cuisine that is refreshingly different from many other offerings in this area.

    Had our hopes up for an authentic Singapore laksa and noodle experience but it fell just a bit short. Chicken yakitori skewers were probably our favorite. Hakka dry noodles were good but could've been a bit more flavorful. Laksa soup noodles were also tasty and spicy. Separate restrooms in the back and parking garage around the corner

    The food was very flavorful. We asked for auggestions and ordered what was suggested. The laksa was delicious. The rice dish was ok. Service was quick. Two of us were sharing but had to ask for bowls and then for plates.

    You come here for the delicious food, not friendly service, lol! This is my FAVORITE Malaysian restaurant and I am so happy it's still open (We moved out of state almost 4 years ago.) They expanded to next door so now there is twice as much seating as originally. We got there just before 12pm on Sunday and were seated quickly. Then the lunch rush came and by the time we were done eating, there was a wait. My 12 and 14 year old gobbled everything up like Champs, despite the medium spiciness. We started with 2 Roti and an order of chicken skewers. You can't go wrong with those! The curry for the Roti had heat! My hubby got a Laksa noodle soup and my daughter got a flat noodle (with bowl of soup on side). I ordered a dry noodle. There were no leftovers!! You must try it!!! ^_~
