Packed with customers mainly students as this gem of a place is located just a stone’s throw away from Sunway University. This place is highly sort after that you won’t be surprised to see people lining up outside of the restaurant during lunch hour to get their garlic roasted chicken rice fix. The reason for the crowd also can be contributed not only for its famous garlic drizzle on top of the chicken but due to its cheap and affordable price. All under RM10. Plus, the portions of the ingredients, especially the star of the dish, the garlic given is super generous.
