I had a little snack of salmon sushi and wow! Fresh, really tasty. My friend had the pad thai and it was massive! Best Asian restaurant anywhere outside Sydney in NSW I have found.

We booked a table, why bother they just sat us anywhere clearly not referring to any booking. Given menus and left for 25 minutes, we kept asking wait staff to take our order and was told "I'll get someone" we watched other tables who came in after us get their orders taken. We were about to leave but thought as... More

I probably should have returned here for dinner the 2nd consecutive night I had in the... More
