We go as a group every month and have various dishes which we share around. Everyone enjoys it and we will all be going again next month

I've used the Hakalok takeout service some years now, it has steadily gone down hill - Items that were once part of the meal have been stopped, portion sizes reduced but prices remain the same. I'm so fed up with them not getting my entire order correct, and to top it my order was not fully cooked rice hard, pancakes... More

Recent reviews gave us high expectations and although we had no major problems with anything the food was not significantly better than or different to other oriental restaurants. Might think of giving it another try sometime.

Back in 2011 we had lunch here some four times over a few months, and recently we remembered how good it was and went back. Lucky us! The food here is as fine as ever: well-cooked, professionally presented, and with service attentive to necessary detail (that is, neither servile nor officious -- just ensuring each diner was comfortable and pleased)....

We regularly visit this restaurant with friends and family (inc. children). Always friendly and welcoming. Good choice on the menu and food never disappoints. We mostly go at weekend lunchtimes and the service has always been very good. My husband (Malaysian) is very impressed with the 'authentic' food. Easy to park outside (free). The only improvements I could suggest is... More

Unlikely setting, but great food. If you watched Rachel Khoo's Cook Abroad recently you'll know the variety of food to expect!
