Having previously been to Orientai, we were looking forward to a family meal. Have tried the food before; both in the restaurant and take away and have enjoyed the food. Anyway, we made a reservation as there were 6 of us in our group. When arriving, we were told that our table had been given away to a family with... More

Food was delicious. We ate as a party of 20, and had the chance to try a variety of dishes. The menu offers a number of reasonably priced and tempting options. Be sure to try the salt and pepper squid and Penang beef.

Ate here the other evening for the first time and will definitely be back. Very surprised by some of the other negative reviews as our experience was first rate. Service was second to none, very polite staff who seemed to go out of their way to ensure you had a great time. Food was a sheer delight, well presented and... More

Terrible service from start to end, not welcoming or attentive and took 20 plus minutes to have our order taken after already informing two waiters we were ready. Very rude and blunt when taking order and did not even write order down, main rice came out before any of the entrees or main dishes (even though indicated to do so)... More

The food is great, specially weekday lunch deal which also a bit more value. Nice pad thai and singapore noodles. Again staff needs proper training and a more smiley face.
