This place not only serves great food, but it also serves one of the best human touch in town. We got a wrong dish and makcik was so accommodating that she swapped it for us (right before the payment) with a bright smile. The casher and everyone else who worked there never failed to greet and asked us to enjoy our meal there, even when they just passed us by on the stairs. I may forget how the food taste like tomorrow, but I'll never forget the warmth that people there showed to their customers. This is how any business should be run! 👍

Passed by this place for years and always wondered what the queue is about. I understand now! First, it's air-conditioned to stay cool despite the spicy food 😂. Next, the varieties are crazy. There are probably 50 different kind of dishes to choose from. Talking about spoilt for choices. Lastly, the flavours are as good as its prices. As the saying goes, cheap and good! Very good especially with the sambal chilli. I'll be back 👍🏼

Finally got the chance to try this and it didnt disappoint! Sambal Sotong - Very spicy. Watch out if your tolerance level is low! It tastes more like cuttlefish texture. Not to my liking but it isnt a poor dish. Stingray - The sweet sauce drenched over the stingyray is very delicious. The stingray was plump and full of meat. Very fresh! Must get! Very very affordable. Petai and Ikan Bilis - Petai is quite raw. If u like ur petai crunchy, this is it. Added a Bergedil which was standard. Sambal Brinjal - Plump juicy brinjal. Loved this this! Beef Rendang - Very flavourful but the meat was a little tough. Perhaps it was just the part i got. Not too sure. But would be alot more enjoyable if it was more tender. Tempei and Long Beans - Standard indonesian food dish. Cooked well with some heat! Overall, its definitely value for money. The choices of dishes are aplenty. So many that you’ll be overwhelmed if you have not been there before. Would definitely return when I have Muslim food craving!

Great food, one of the best places for Malay food. You'll have to queue most of the time to enter buy the queues move fast so you won't water much time. The service is decent and they will bring your food to your table once prepared. Unfortunately some popular dishes like the tahu telur sells out fast so you might have to wait for it to be replenished.

Not knowing their names but the usual this and that, the food are flavourful and really yummy. I fell in love with tahu telur ever since I had it at Jakarta. I am happy to be able to find it here for the same old taste.

Went the the outlet at Geylang Serai. We were a bit confused initially as there were 2 entrances/exits. Recommended to split up such that some look for seats and some queue to order as the queue was rather long. Food wise, it is definitely worth the trip down. It was affordable, delicious and the service was great despite the crowd. There were 2 staff at the cashier who will help you to bring the food to your seats. We will definitely return to try other dishes on the menu!

Snaking long queues for the food with a little madness for weekend ordering, ample seating on 2nd floor. Had the tauhu telur, sotong, Ayam baker, sambal goreng. Hits all the right spots for comfort food for Singaporeans. Efficient service.

The Nasi Sambal Goreng set and Ayam Goreng rocks! Nasi Padang don’t get much better than this in my opinion. Every dish served was delicious and flavorful. Lovely sambal belacan. Overall shiok. But the Goreng Pisang dough too thick and hard not delicate crispy.

Tahu goreng only available after 11:30. Surprisingly the black chilli source is warm/panas. The dish taste like Chinese Zhu Cha dish. The beef rendang and sambal chilli is the best. Improvement opportunities: Set Menu would improve the order time.

Really good Nasi Padang available in Joo Chiat. Must try > flavorful mixture of spices and herbs - Ayam Goreng Bumbu. (Signature Fried Chicken) Remember to ask for extra “Serundeng”(spiced, toasted grated coconut - a popular Javanese side dish) goes well with jasmine rice. Its sooo good! Comfortable, Air condition with 2 levels of dining areas. If unable to manage stairs up, do ask them to direct you to the elevator next door.

Probably one of the best legendary Nasi Padang Restaurant in Singapore! Visited during lunchtime put me in a long queue. There are many options of Indonesian and Malaysian food. Delicious and big portion.

HJH Maimunah, Joo Chiat: I was so starved of stellar Asian food on the Euro trip that I drew up a list of places I vow to eat at in my hood upon return. HJH Maimunah is the Nasi Padang Institution. With more human traffic than McDonald’s at all given time, food fly off the shelves by the minute. No one misses out on the Tahu Telor. It’s a messy mob but so tantalisingly delicious. No one does it like them. The samba BBQ fish is tasty, especially when it’s slathered by kechap manis. There are so many dishes here that you’re in a nasi Padang Willa Wonka factory. I am so happy to have scratched off the itch and it’s onwards to other fab spots in the hood on my list. #eatstylishtravelstylish

One of the best Nasi Padang restaurants in Singapore. A plethora of dishes on offer, so best to come in a bigger group so that you can share more. Personal favourites include the ayam rendang, sambal sotong and tahu telor. Only downside is the cost as it’s slightly pricier compared to other establishments.

Great service and atmosphere despite the torrential downpour and long lineup on a weekday lunch hour at Geylang Serai. The staff were really professional, polite and made sure everyone was served on time and in an orderly manner. The food — everything was delicious. My family and I are big fans of the food for many years and we’ll keep patronizing the restaurant because the food quality is good and consistent! SEDAP!

It may seem daunting but here's what you should do when you come here: 1) Find a table to chope 2) Queue to order food 3) Decide whether you want to order the different dishes to be eaten separately (medium or large size) or individually (on the 1 plate for 1 person). 4) Share you order verbally with the staff who will assist to prepare your order 5) Carry your plate to the cashier station nearby (note: if you need help to carry all the separate dishes, you can inform the staff the table number) 6) Pay for your food & drinks 7) Head to the drinks station to inform the staff to prepare your paid drinks and/or grab the canned/bottles drinks from the chiller. Personally, today I ordered rice with terung balado, rendang daging, urap, bagedil & kuah lemak cili padi. It was a great meal for only $9.6. The beef rendang was sooo tender. The terung balado was cooked perfectly and it wasn't too oily. The urap was fresh. Bagedil was good as always. Lastly the lemak cili padi was flavourful. After the meal, I also grabbed some traditional Malay kuih for dessert, which costs $1.1 per slice.

It's a nice cosy place for Nasi Campur at the Joo Chiat area. There was only 1 queue for dine in and takeaway, but the waiting time was not long. There are plenty of seats upstairs, and the staff was very helpful (one person helped to carry the tray with us). The place is also clean and very comfortable. We shared the ayam bakar and ordered bittergourd vegetables, mixed taugeh vegetables, bergedil, sambal egg, sambal goreng, sambal petai. With 2 drinks, the bill came to SGD19. The restaurant also sells kuih muih, goreng pisang, risoles, and bubur chacha for dessert. Everything was tasty 👍. Tip: Choose the food, order your drink, pay, and then eat with ease.

YOU GUYS SHOULD NOT ALLOWED PEOPLE TO SIT IF THEY'RE NOT MAKE ORDER YET. Many people book the table without any food. I have order and want to sit but no place. this terrible.
