Very nice food. The fact that restaurant is busy and crowded is testament to the quality of food served. I found it to be very good at a reasonable price.

Full of locals, this busy and friendly restaurant I would move to Canberra for haha! Best Asian food I have had in a long time. My partner and I shared a range of entree plates and will be back next time in Canberra for sure.

When my family are visiting Canberra we often go here. It is always delicious, fresh and flavoursome food and great warm service! We enjoy trying their specials & love that it is BYO.

Just needed a quick meal whilst staying in the area for work. Got the special Pork and Mushroom spring rolls and a beef Rendang. It was honestly fantastic, highly recommended. I promise I'll be back 👍🏻🍻

This is an excellent restaurant. We dined there on a Thursday night when it was almost full. The service was excellent - friendly and prompt with attention to detail. The menu had a lot of variety. Our food was high quality and excellently cooked. The beef rendang was tender and spicy and a new favourite with us. We will definitely... More

This is a busy casual Asian cafe and I loved it. A lot of people seemed to pop in for a meal and leave. A real local. We loved the food we had Redang, Bali Chicken and yummy vegetables. It was very busy so for a time hearing was a bit challenged but that's not unusual these days.Staff very friendly!

Prices are good, they even had blankets for people... More

For the first course we had calamari (which was nice) and pork and prawn balls. The first ball was cold but the rest were ok. The sauce was nice. As I ate... More

Every time we go to Canberra, we try to get into this place but the last few times it was crowded (we usually go during Floriade). This time we got in and the food was as good as ever - the twice cooked crispy duck was perfect - crunchy but tender, not too much fat, not too salty or oily... More
