Drove into the city just to try the laksa at the new location (NT House). Was hoping for more of a restaurant style, but seems more cafeteria like. Staff friendly and efficient. I would consider myself to be a bit of a laksa connoisseur, and...More

Delicious cheap laksa, huge variety, BBQ pork, chicken, seafood, combination, wanton, the list is endless. Also specialise in other soups and Asian dishes. Quick service and always busy.

Came all the way to Darwin to fan the flame for a Rendzvous Laksa, and was sorely disappointed. New premises, chaotic service, and ordinary laksa. Who puts cabbage in a laksa? 1 x half piece of tofu, cabbage instead of Bean shoots, and smaller bowls...More

The service was slow, the chicken penang (at $14) uninspiring and the spring rolls average. Sorry guys, got to call it like I see it. It was a busy lunch period and the service was friendly.

Since Rendezvous moved to NT House it has lifted its game. The new venue is much more spacious. We had a work lunch here and many enjoyed their Laksas whilst I had Pandang Chicken. Service was also very prompt.

As regulars at the old location in Star Village we were attracted to the place for its homely service, and consistent quality of the dishes from the staff, who are mostly owner operators. After moving to the new location under NT House Rendezvous has stepped...More
