Relaxed and inviting with Asian accents, mirrors on the walls to make it appear larger. Their menu has a variety of foods from a variety of Asian cuisines (Thai, Malaysian, Singapore and Chinese ). What I like is that the food is always fresh and there are dishes I can't get other places, like the mushrooms and basil with a bit of tropical sauce. Their prawn rolls are crispy and very tasty. Favourites are the deep fried tofu, garlic ribs,crispy beef, honey-glazed chicken wings, and no meal would be complete without their house special crispy egg noodles with seafood, chicken and veggies.There are many dishes for vegetarians. Some food is hot and spicy and other dishes are not. Our guide was the amazing wonderful Roxy who will help you shape any dish to your needs. Can't eat broccoli, fine, other veggies will be substituted. We are from Victoria and we have had birthday celebrations here many times. Be sure to ask for the round table for a large group. We also order in from them regularly.

the service people were friendly and they were effecient the food choices were quite different with as the name suggests tropical varieties Japanese Korean Chinese hawiin. I had a seafood platter that was excellent the calamari were done perfectly my wife had a crispy noodle dish which was also excellent. Their prices are reasonable and we would certainly recommend giving it a try.

Everything we tried on their extensive menu was excellent. Menu items are mostly Indonesian, Malaysian and Thai based. In addition the their regular menu they often have specials depending on what ingredients they are able to obtain.

Delicious food in a nice, laid-back atmosphere. All the dishes we tried had something special in them that elevated their flavour profile. The green chicken curry was light and citrusy, the tropical beef is tender, and the mushroom platter is like nothing we've tried before. The server was super busy but a total pro -- the table behind us customised every dish they ordered and she didn't bat an eye. We will definitely return!
