Old Town - Goreng is Good!

A good friend of mine has more than once recommended getting lunch at Old Town. I regularly use Trip Advisor to get a very general feel for a restaurant and from reading the reviews about a potential chef with attitude, I couldn’t resist, so I decided to pop in for a lunch time snack.

I've eaten here regularly for the last few years and it's always been great. Freshly cooked and prepared and really tasty. Always a short wait, even when it's really busy. Love the mee goreng, chicken curry, satay and the sushi, of course. The staff really know what they're doing and I appreciate the no-nonsense approach-no style over substance here.

Visited during a Saturday shopping session, so much better than the standard Yo Sushi in West Quay. In terms of aesthetic, it's not great. But there's limited seating available to eat, which was fine. We ordered two of the pre-made boxes and spicy squid - everything was great. Good value for money, fresh and well presented.

When you first see the shop it doesn't look very appealing but we went ahead and ordered to try. We were surprised and taken aback to find the man who makes the food very very grumpy (and has been every time we've been there) but he is very good at what he does. Its like watching an artist, and it... More

This is only the 2nd time I have taken to trip advisor but felt i had to after this experience. The man serving could not have been ruder if he tried and begged belief that he should be serving customers. I asked for a spicy noodle dish and he pointed to something on the menu I asked what this had... More

The food was nice although a bit expensive but the entire place was filthy,We ate upstairs and you get plastic... More

Tonight as a family we treated ourselves to an Old Town takeaway. We order a Sushi chef combo and a Mee Goreng. We phoned our order thorough and it was ready exactly as we arrived to pick it up. The Mee Goreng was piping hot, even after a 10 minute drive home and tasted spicey and substantial. The sushi was... More
