Food came out very quickly,I would say it was average Asian style food but good value for money. The restaurant caters for children and other people came in to order takeaway,seemed popular with the locals.

I was staving when I went there. Quick service but really disappointing taste-could cook much better myself! I had the lynch special of noodles and aside dish of stir fried vegetables. Noodles were dry and tasteless and although there were plenty of vegetables and we'll cooked they seemed very msg to me

Inexpensive and good food. The staff were very helpful and the service good. It's not fine dining but good regular filling food.

Definitely book a table for this restuarant on a Friday / Saturday night. We had to wait a little but that was expected as we didn't book. The food was absolutely outstanding!

We rocked up with a big group and the staff were very accommodating and rearranged tables without any hesitation. The food was super fresh and vegetarian and gluten free requirements were met easily. We'll be back for sure.

When we arrive at the restaurant (approximately 6PM, opening time is 5PM) it was completely empty. We decided to give it a try. The server was really friendly and helpful. I ended up ordering chicken laksa which was really great and my wife had the Singapore noodles which were also excellent. They had a Pavlova which we wanted to try.... More
