Was it good? Nope, not even close. The plain rice is accompanied by a pathetic piece of chicken that’s not only tough but it is almost tasteless, the soup on the other hand was “full of taste” – a mad dash of pepper and whatever condiments to make it aromatic but one can tell this is a rather sub-standard soup.

If you have RM 6.99 to spare, McDonald’s is just a few minutes walk down the road. There are other eateries around that area as well.

Would I recommend this shop to others? No, absolutely not ……… unless you feel the urge to spend RM 6.99 (not inclusive of GST) to see what you can get out of it. The address is at 28G, Jalan SS15/4D, Subang Jaya.
