The restaurant is simple yet pleasing and the service has been friendly. A frequent place for lunch and our lunch is always great. We will come back to try more samples of the menu. The store is a great place for asian cuisine supplies and our favourite tea.

I'm stuck between 3* and 4* rating, but can't think why I don't give an unreserved 4*. 1. Would I go again? Sure! location is good (for me -- close to the Uni.and many friends), though it's in an un-prepossessing location The price is right. The food is pretty good. It's a slam-dunk "regular". 2. OK ... what's wrong? Nothing... More

You will not be disappointed with the fantastic prawn or chicken lettuce wraps here. Vicky is one of the owners and is very attentive to details. We ordered their lettuce wraps for a party and everyone raved about them. Their prices are very, very reasonable.

This is a great find somewhat off the beaten track. A variety of menu options-the soups we had were truly meals at minimal cost. Despite the spartan decor the service was excellent and the food delicious.
