Sadly it was expensive, over-rated and they even charged for tap water. Food was only average even though we had 13 banquet guests! Won't bother coming back! Wait staff were ok, some seemed too bored and sleepy.

We were recommended this place on arriving in Adelaide 2 years ago and went twice, the second time to see if it was as poor as the first or they were just having a bad day.

This Chinese Malaysian restaurant is top class. No, it is not cheap but the quality of food and service are first class. Best if you make a booking if you have more than 4 persons. The quality never varies. Try the beef or chicken satays as an entree. Very highly recomended. Fully airconditioned with plenty of council free carparking almost... More
