Visited this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. Considering how full the restaurant was the service was very quick, food is exceptional and the staff very friendly and obliging. We will return.

I've been here a few times for dinner, and I am yet to find a fault in this restaurant. It's service is great, awesome food and comes reasonably priced. Only wish it was open for lunch!

Great value meals and great service. It is our regular and we never have had an ordinary meal. The deep fried chilli beef is a favourite as well as their Singapore noodles. Really friendly staff who make you feel at home.
