We have been to this place quite a few times now and love the food, ambience. Staff are very friendly. Love the shaking beef, lamb curry all the starters. Tried Firecracker chicken and loved it, although was very very hot.
Good place to hang out.

After having some of the best Thai curry in Manila and whangarei in the same month my Duck curry was very blunt, curry not cooked well and duck was chewy. I can't speak for other dishes but I wouldn't get the Duck curry there again.

We were here a few months ago for dinner for my grandfathers 80th birthday.
My grandmother has a serious allergy to garlic, the chef came out of the kitchen to reassure her that her food would be cooked separately and put her mind at peace.

There was a group of 10 of us and none of us could fault a thing!
There service was exceptional, the food delicious and a wonderful atmosphere

Went here for lunch with another family. We were looking for a place for a nice tasting , spicy meal and this was close to our hotel.
Wasn't too busy around 1:30 pm and we were seated promptly. Most of the dishes were fabulous. A couple were not too impressive
Hits:
Nasi Goreng - flavorful and spicy
Singapore Noddles
Broccoli & Tofu
Colonial Drink

Misses
Penang Chicken - chicken had no flavor
Vietnamese Fresh rolls - have had better.

Ambience is pretty good and can seat large groups.

On the whole, would definitely recommend this place for at least one meal.

Bill for 8 ( 4 adults / 4 kids) for a hearty lunch appx 170.

We visited after having had an unsatisfactory go at eating at another restaurant nearby with our grandchildren.
There were 4 adults and 2 children.
Food was great , fast, tasty and fabulous.
Great surroundings, noisy and full of people enjoying themselves.
The 25 spice lamb curry is particularly good.
The children's meals are great and our granddaughter who isn't a good eater, nearly demolished the whole plate.
They also provide colouring , crayons and puzzles for the children to amuse them while waiting for their meals.
