This unassuming yet comfortable restaurant has been serving spicy Padang food since 1967. The decor is simple, with just a few artifacts from Padang adorning the walls. The waiter will cover your table with a host of dishes including such culinary delights as rendang (spicy beef), ikan mas (goldfish) and chicken curry. As the Padang people are strict Muslims, drinks are of the non-alcoholic variety only. The restaurant's reputation is known far and wide: Both Mahathir Mohamad (Malaysia's prime minister) and Anwar Ibrahim (Malaysia's former deputy prime minister) have dined here before.
