Chicken pandan .. Chicken breast wrapped with Pandan leaf

The food was really good though the service was a bit slow we went there at lunch time it seems like they are not used to getting large lunch orders
The pandan chicken and the fish were really good.
The tom yum was alright .. over all I’d give it an 8 out of 10
