We can really see huge improvement compare to before renovation, there is much more lighting and better table arrangement. Whole area painted with white color which gave a clean and spaces feeling. I particularly enjoy dining in bright lighting rather than in the dim lighting, with the new decoration I feel very comfortable, it is very bright and simple.

On the hot dishes counter, there is a lot of hot dishes that caught my attention such as the Chili Crab, Salmon Fish Head and Deep Fried Prawn. I have to speak out loud that I LOVE Chili Crab! I am very surprise by the huge size of Crab served here, it is very big and fresh. I love the Chili sauce very much as it taste sweet with mild spiciness, we took one big plate and myself almost finish all. It was too good. Same goes to deep fried prawn which are coated with a layer of Chili flour then deep fried to golden color, it is very flavorful and fresh. Curry Salmon Head taste pretty good as well, thick curry paste and the salmon taste fresh too. What about Curry Squid? If you love those traditional Malay sell Nasi Lemak then you will love this dish, I am a big fans of Malay Nasi Lemak hence the flavor suit me very much, i just love it. Fried Rice and Bee Hoon are not so impressive as it lack of flavor and we just hope it has a little bit more flavor.

Fresh Sashimi

Well, how can a Japanese Buffet without Sushi? There is assorted freshly made Sushi available, sushi are nicely season to flavor and ingredients are fresh. Cafe Laurel is a Halal restaurant so they are not allow to use Mirin (Sushi Vinegar) but chef are good in twisting the recipe to create pretty much same flavor as Mirin as replacement, impressive result as we cannot differentiate with Sushi created using Mirin.

Moving toward Portuguese Grilled Station next, assorted fish and muscle are available. You just need to place your order and collect it later, it take sometime to prepare. I like the chili paste very much, it taste sauteed with strong dried shrimp flavor in it, i would recommend you to ask the chef to add more chili paste as it really good.

Char Koay Teow, a very famous local signature dish that should not be miss. Although it not as good as those famous Char Koay Teow in town but it still not bad but the only missing item are PRAWN, where is my prawn? My solution is to get the prawn from noodle station and ask them to add it while cooking or take the deep fried prawn and add it yourself.

Self cook Tomyam noodle, you get to choose your own ingredients and noodle then cook it with hot water. Two soup available are Chicken Stock or Tomyam Soup, tasted the Tomyam soup and not bad.
